Hi all

Does anybody know which High Street stores sell sims for 1, except for Maplin and Argos?

Cheers
Dave

It is quite paradoxical that you should post this question, as I was about to post about a particularly attractive offer that I found in Morrison's yesterday  !       Shocked

Morrison's are selling Orange Pay & Go SIM cards for 1, with a great offer attached.       Smiley

The deal is that if you port in a non Orange number, they will give you 30 of free credit over 3 months !        Cheesy

There are conditions involved.  The first 10 of free credit is promised to be added to your account within 14 days of the port taking place.  The next two month's free 10 of credit is conditional on your having topped up in each of months two and three by 10 yourself.       Wink

The actual porting arrangement is through a free to call 0870 number ( free from your Orange SIM. )  0870 870 8888.  I think it unusual for a mobile network to give such a free number on a Pay & Go account, but I have done this myself this afternoon, so I know it works.       Wink

The literature that came with the SIM card said this offer was on till the end of this year.  I do not know if it is limited to SIMs sold for 1, or whether it would also be available on a free SIM via their website.

That's not a bad offer. I guess it'll be limited to one per household or something similar.

Does Morrisons only sell Orange sims?

Why would you want to pay even 1 for a sim, when free pay as you go sims are available (including free postage)  all over the internet.

Couldn't you expand on that then and ask why any store would even bother selling sims when they are available for free?

Except for special promotions such as Mobaholic mentioned, some people might not want to wait for the sim to be delivered, or they might want to have a choice of numbers, want to kit out their family or some other group... thats just off the top of my head Smiley

There is no limit displayed that I can see.       Smiley

Morrisons have various mobile offers, on most networks, which will doubtless come with their appropriate SIM card.  However, if you are enquiring about SIM cards which stand alone, my local store only seem to have Orange and Virgin ones currently.       Wink

I have also visited the local Poundland store for you, and saw the following on their shelves:-

O2 ( both Favourite Place and Your Country ), Orange, '3', T-Mobile ( with unlimited text offer attached ), Lebara, and Vodafone.       Wink

I have been into the Network's own stores, Voda, O2, Orange and Three to buy SIMs. They have usually had a deal to give the SIM away for free if you buy a 10 top-up or something.

Also HomeBargains sell them for 79p, and B&M Bargains do them for 99p. I'm not sure about Poundland or Poundstretcher but would not be surprised to see them there as well.
