Switching mobile phone provider

01 October 2016

Every year hundreds of thousands of consumers decide to switch to a new mobile phone provider.

Many will do this because they want a new handset or simply because they can save money with a new deal from someone else.

The following guide explains what you need to do if you want to switch your mobile phone service to a new provider.

Remember, you have a 14 calendar day period from the date you enter a new contract with a new provider in which you have a right to cancel your request to switch without being charged.
