KEEP BRITAIN FREE
Brilliant! Both options sound good. I've looked at GiffGaff, though they seem to want card details. I looked at 1pmobile too and that seemed a good choice as well. A voda sim came with the fone and I might go with that.
I use Giff Gaff and an ancient Nokia which I keep turned off most of the time, won't have a smart phone.
I use 1p Mobile in my "Covid" phone.
Created a new Google account and used that to register it.
Phone is only used for NHS contact tracing app and for passenger locator forms when travelling
(Remember the days when we were allowed to go out and travel?)
If you sign up for 12 months, it's only £30
