Can I use a SIM free phone on any network?

Yes, you can use a SIM free phone on any network. As long as the number isn’t blocked and the phone isn’t locked, you can use any network SIM in a SIM free phone from Tesco Mobile.

What are SIM free phones?

SIM free phones are phones that don’t come with a SIM card. SIM free phones are also unlocked, meaning you can use them with any network. SIM free phones are popular choices for phone-users who want to buy their phones outright and (typically) pair with a SIM only deal. This often works out cheaper.

Does SIM free mean I can put any SIM card in it?

Yes. Provided the SIM works and the phone you have is unlocked, then you can use any SIM card. We use tri-SIMs, so you just pop out the size you need. Most newer phones use a nano SIM, but check the manufacturers information for more detail.
