If you're hunting for a new mobile plan, you've probably noticed the combo deals bundling a smartphone with a custom SIM package. While these are enticing, sometimes you need more flexibility – like when you already own a device or prefer a combo deal that meets your talk time, data, budget or even roaming needs.

With Circles.Life's exclusive range of SIM-only plans, not only do you get to break free of burdensome contracts, but you also get access to superior 5G connectivity and tailored offers that fit your lifestyle. Let's dive into the details.

Understanding SIM-only plans

Before we start, let’s cover the basics - what are SIM-only plans?

In essence, SIM-only plans offer you just the SIM card. You're free to pair this card with any device you have, ensuring you can switch devices while retaining your number.

SIM-only deals come with a monthly data allowance and talk time, and they can be customised to your needs. At Circles.Life, you can also use our intuitive app to keep track of your monthly usage, manage your plans, and even switch to a more convenient deal when needed.

Need more flexibility? Switch up to an eSIM option.

Benefits of choosing SIM-only plans

SIM-only plans can be extremely advantageous. Some of the benefits that you’ll enjoy when choosing this option include:

• Affordability: Without subsidising a phone, these SIM-only plans are typically more affordable and offer more value than combo deals.
• Flexibility: Without annual contracts, you can easily switch between SIM-only deals as per your monthly requirements.
• Optimised Usage: Make the most of your data and talk time every month with SIM-only plans.

Last but not least, SIM-only plans are less risky. Imagine relocating to a neighbourhood where your current provider's signal is weak. With Circles.Life, all you need to do is select your preferred plan, swap your SIM card or activate your eSIM, and you are good to go!

Considerations before choosing SIM-only plans

SIM-only plans are a great option for most users, but there are some considerations to consider. Here’s what you need to know:

• Device Costs: If you're eyeing a new phone, remember you'll bear the full cost upfront with SIM-only plans.
• Network Compatibility: Ensure your device supports the network offerings of your chosen SIM-only provider before committing. For example, ensure you have a 5G-compatible smartphone before selecting a 5G plan.

Who should opt for SIM-only plans?

If you've recently splurged on a phone or dislike contractual ties, SIM-only plans might be your match. Temporary residents in Singapore or those frequently swapping phones can benefit immensely from this flexibility.

However, if you're aiming to snag a deal on the latest phone models, consider our combo plans that pair top-tier devices with our fantastic SIM-only offers.
