Tariff Details

About Tesco Mobile Anytime Upgrade

Upgrade your phone as often as you like with this tariff. Your monthly phone bill is divided into two parts, the handset contract and the phone usage contract (monthly minutes, texts and data). You can change your phone at any time by paying the balance owing on the handset contract and upgrading to a new phone. If you don't need a new phone at the end of the 24-month contract period your pay monthly costs are reduced to the usage contract cost only. (Requires a 24 month credit agreement at 0% APR and a 24 month service contract both with Tesco Mobile Ltd. Subject to availability and your status).
