Honest Mobile is a mobile virtual network that piggybacks on Three, offering 5G at no extra cost, plus 4G and 3G coverage. It is the only carbon-negative mobile network operating in the UK.
They offer flexible, no credit check SIM only deals that come with unlimited UK calls and texts. They also claim their customer support will reach you within 30 seconds, and a real human will be responding to your queries. Honest Mobile customers can enjoy free WiFi Calling, but 4G Calling isn’t included yet. You can also roam freely on Honest Mobile and use your plan in EU countries as if you’re at home.
Honest Mobile doesn’t offer any phone contracts. Their 30-day SIM Only plans don’t require you to pass a credit check. You can switch between these plans as you wish since you’re not locked into a long-term contract.
Honest Mobile’s 12-month contracts require you to pay monthly, but you’ll be asked to pass a credit check first. You can save up to 10% with Honest Mobile’s 12-month SIM tariffs. The network also offers an unlimited data contract, but keep in mind that Honest Mobile’s unlimited data plan is limited to 3G speeds after you use 650GB in a month.
