Vodafone 5G

Vodafone 5G gives you faster speeds, lower latency and a more reliable connection – with 5G in more places across Europe.


Roam at no extra cost in more destinations than any other network.


A SIM only deal gives you an allowance of data, minutes and texts, all on one SIM card. We offer 12-month and 30-day SIM only plans and Pay as you go SIMs.

Just insert the SIM into any Vodafone device, or one that’s not locked to a different network, to get started. If it’s a new SIM card, you can follow our SIM swap instructions for setting up and keeping your current number.

Choosing a SIM only plan has a number of benefits. It’s perfect if your Pay monthly contract has just ended and you want to reduce your monthly costs while you wait for your ideal next phone.

Or if you love the phone you’ve already got and see no reason to change it, you can continue to use it and enjoy the flexibility SIM only offers.

For an even more flexible option, choose a 30-day SIM contract. If you change your mind or want to upgrade to another phone, it’s up to you.

Opting for a 12-month SIM only contract means you can enjoy even better value 4G data, calls and texts, with cheap SIM only plans starting from under £15 a month. But you won’t be tied down – you can upgrade to a Pay monthly contract with a new device after just 3 months of your SIM only contract.

The main difference is that you’ll get a brand-new phone or tablet when you chose from our wide range of Pay monthly plans. With SIM only, you bring your own phone and we’ll supply you with the SIM card so you can enjoy great-value 4G data, calls and texts without factoring in the price of a new phone.

Our SIM only contracts let you choose either a 12-month or 30-day plan, giving you more flexibility to let you change later on. But like a Pay monthly contract, you’ll need to pass a credit check and sign an agreement with us.

All our SIM only plans come with 5G as standard. If your phone is 5G-compatible, and you’re in an area covered by our 5G network, you’ll be able to use it. In other areas, you can use our 4G network.

Whichever SIM card you need, our Vodafone 3-in-1 Multi SIM will do the job as it includes a Standard SIM, microSIM or nanoSIM – simply pop out the size you need.

If you’re already a Vodafone customer and want to swap your Pay monthly contract to SIM only at the end of your agreement, you can keep the SIM card you’ve already got – we’ll do the rest at our end.

Yes, you can. Vodafone Global Roaming comes as standard with all Pay monthly plans bought on or after 12 April 2017. It lets you use your home plan of data, minutes and texts in 152 destinations worldwide.

In our 51 Roam-free destinations [PDF: 627KB] there’s no additional charge to use your UK allowances.

In our 105 Roam-further destinations [PDF: 810KB] we charge €12 a day to use your UK allowances (midnight to 11:59pm, local time, in the capital of the country you’re visiting. If you visit more than one Roam-further destination in 24 hours, your ‘day’ will be calculated as 24 hours, starting from midnight in the capital city of the original country.) You’ll only be charged on the days you use your device.

When you’re travelling in all other countries, standard roaming charges apply.

Keep the phone you love and save on your data, calls and texts by choosing the best SIM only deal to suit your needs.

Our SIM only deals offer convenient packages of 4G and 5G data, minutes and texts without the need to change your mobile phone. They all come with Vodafone Global Roaming, so you can take your home plan abroad to 110 destinations worldwide.

Choose a Pay monthly plan and enjoy flexible upgrades, with the option to get a new phone plan after just three months. Or choose a Pay as you go SIM only deal for even more flexibility.
