How come sim cards are free?
As you probably know the mobile industry is extremely competitive, so all the big players in the UK invest time, effort and marketing budget to acquire new customers. One of the biggest drivers of acquisition is via an offer where potential customers would be able to test and use sim cards which are ready to work on the majority of handsets available. This sim cards offered by the networks tend to be loaded with credits that would include minutes on calls and text messages. Once the initial offer has been consumed by the potential client the idea is that the client would then top up to and become a normal customer.
