More and more people are taking back control of their mobile phone bills - by shopping for the best SIM only deals. With many of us now working at home, or stuck in self-isolation, it is a good to to reassess how much you are paying, and how much you are now using your phone.

With a SIM only deal, rather than paying for a contract, where you are tied to a provider for a year or two, you are not paying extra for the cost of the phone. You pay for the handset (or make do with a phone from a previous contract) - and then negotiate the airtime separately - by taking a SIM only deal (or SIMO, as it is known in the trade).
