Your Sky Mobile services and contract: Your Sky Mobile services are for your personal use as a consumer and are separate to any other Sky services you have. A 12 month minimum term applies to your Sky Mobile service.
If you end your Sky Mobile contract in your minimum term, you may have to pay us an early termination charge. You may be able to reduce this by changing data plan or removing recurring optional extras before you terminate. We may charge this, and any other one-off payment you owe us, to the card you used to pay for any upfront payment.
Your cancellation rights will be sent to you with your full terms and conditions. You agree your Sky services may start during your cooling off period, you may still cancel your services within this but you'll need to pay for any services used up to that point (e.g. call costs).
Your new contract for each order will be posted to your online account. Create a SkyiD to log in from sky.com. If you already have products or services from Sky Mobile, your existing contract(s) remain unchanged unless we tell you otherwise.
You must activate your SIM card within 31 days of receipt.
Your Sky Mobile services should be available within 24 hours of you activating the SIM card. Details about how to activate your SIM card will be sent with your SIM.
Phones and other devices we supply may be locked to our network. Visit Sky Help to find out if they are and, if so, when you can unlock your device and any fees you may have to pay.
Unless you have bought your device from us, please ensure your device is unlocked before you activate your Sky SIM. It can take several days for your current network to do this. If you activate your SIM when your device is locked, you will not be able to use calls and texts with Sky Mobile.
If you have purchased a ‘Like New’ phone, it comes with a 12 month Sky warranty against faults arising in the first 12 months from the date of purchase. For more information, including how to report a fault, see our help article on Sky Mobile warranty information.
If 'roam assist' or 'dial assist' are enabled on your device (see your settings), please carefully check the number you're calling to avoid making an international call by mistake. UK numbers should start 0044 or +44 (not 0046 or +46).
As this is a mobile service, it may not be available everywhere in the UK and in some places it is only available at certain times. Several factors could impact your coverage, for example, weather and geographic conditions or your location. You can check your predicted network coverage in your area using our Coverage Checker.
Unfortunately, there may be some rare occasions where our services will not work for you whilst you are abroad. You can check your current service availability in a particular destination before you travel by contacting us on 03442 414141. Wi-Fi calling is not currently supported outside the UK.
Please take care when using Sky Mobile services close to borders as you might pick up another network. You can stop this by changing the settings on your device so it selects 'National roaming only' or the 'Sky' network in the data roaming settings. Beware of automatic uncontrolled data roaming and downloads. You can switch off data roaming in your device settings.
Use Wi-Fi calling to make/send and receive calls and texts over a wireless internet connection (for example, home broadband). If you make an emergency call using Wi-Fi calling (999), we’ll use a normal mobile network first. If there's no signal, we’ll try using Wi-Fi but the emergency services can’t identify your location automatically so you will need to tell them where you are.
Wi-Fi calling will not work if the broadband connection fails or it loses power. You should keep a fixed line for emergency calls and never rely solely on Wi-Fi calling for these (only use Wi-Fi calling as a last resort). Please take a look at the Help section on sky.com for more information about Wi-Fi calling.
Unused data will be rolled over into your piggybank at the end of each billing period. You can choose to redeem this in increments of 1GB. Accumulated data expires after 3 years.
For security reasons SIM Cards may be replaced from time to time. If this happens we will tell you in advance and send a replacement.
Once your Sky Mobile services are active, it may take up to 24 hours to enable access to Sky+ recordings on your mobile. Downloads are not available via 3G or 4G.
Sky+ and Sky Go apps required to access Sky+ recordings on your mobile.
Paying for your services: We will bill you monthly in advance for all your data plan(s) and any recurring optional extras you have. Other charges, such as add-ons or non-inclusive call/text charges will be billed in arrears. Any offers will be shown on your statement. You are responsible for all activity using your services unless you tell us someone is not authorised to use them before charges are incurred.
You can view your bill at least 3 days before your monthly payment due date, make payments and manage your account through sky.com. Your Sky Mobile bill will be separate to your bill for any other Sky services.
Your Data Plan price will not increase during your new or existing minimum term. Other prices may increase and services may vary, including during your minimum term.

With our International Saver, you get discounted rates for calls and texts to over 60 popular international destinations (to both landline and mobile numbers). See our tariff guide for full details.
Recurring optional extras (Unlimited Calls and Texts and the International Saver) stay on your account each month until cancelled. Please take a look at our tariff guide to see how much non-inclusive calls you make or texts you send will cost you, including our roaming rates. You can also see how much it will cost you to use our call forwarding service.
For your protection, some spend limits apply to each SIM card on your account. If you have multiple SIMs, higher total charges may be incurred. You can manage the spend on your Sky Mobile account via sky.com.
