  •  Low out-of-bundle charges, and incredibly low international rates

London, 2016-Dec-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — iD Mobile, the 4G mobile network from Carphone Warehouse, has announced its entry in the Pay-as-you-go market, bringing more choice to its customers. Today (05 Dec 2016) iD is launching a whole new range of great value 4G SIM only Pay-as-you-go plans, giving customers the flexibility and freedom to manage their plan as they choose – with no contracts or credit checks to worry about.

Designed with simplicity in mind, the new Pay-as-you-go gives customers the choice of three great value bundles £5, £10 and £15, with the option of adding top-up credit. Each bundle is packed with a generous amount of minutes, texts and 4G data, which represents amazing value for customers.

Over and above the three bundles, the new 4G Pay-as-you-go plans offer customers some of the lowest out-of-bundle rates available in the UK mobile market which customers can purchase as top-ups: calls at 3p per minute, 2p texts, and 1p per MB of data used. They also offer some of the most competitive international rates available.

Pay-as-you-go plans are ideal for customers who want flexibility and complete control over how much they’re spending. Importantly for a lot of customers, no credit checks or contracts are involved. As with all iD plans, Pay-as-you-go can be managed entirely through the simple to use iD Mobile app, which allows customers to keep a close eye on their usage, and buy more bundles and credit when they’re running low.

Adam Dunlop, General Manager at iD Mobile, comments: “Entering the Pay-as-you-go market is hugely exciting for us as it completes our range of 4G plans and we have something for everyone. Our customers have told us that flexibility, value for money and control over spending and usage are all extremely important. We have designed our Pay-as-you-go plans to reflect this. We think our new Pay-as-you-go SIM only plans offer unbeatable value for our customers, with a choice of three bundles with great inclusions at £5, £10 and£15, as well as the low international and out of bundle rates. These plans are perfect for customers who don’t want any hassle with contracts or credit checks. Customers will find it easy to manage their usage and payments with the free iD Mobile app which will put them in control of their spend”.
