In a SIM only plan, you only purchase a SIM card and do not buy a handset. A SIM only plan is a prepaid plan where you pay for services like calling, texting and data usage up front.
There are two types of SIM only plans: Pay monthly plan and Pay as you Go.
Pay As You Go or PAYG is essentially a system in which you top up/add credit and get the flexibility to enjoy services provided by the mobile operator. For example, in PAYG plan, you can either opt for a 4GB data bundle or a combination of international minutes, local minutes and texts.
When you opt for Pay as you go with Lycamobile, you can simply buy a SIM card and add credit or buy a bundle to start calling the world for less!
When you buy a prepaid SIM card, you buy the SIM with no lock-in contracts or without any bundle/plan tied to it. You are required to pay for the services like calling, texting or data usage – up front.
This kind of plan helps you keep your expenditure in check.
