Why Sky Mobile?

What's different about Sky Mobile?

With Sky Mobile, you can get the phone you want, when you want. The choice is yours with Swap - whether you want the latest model every year with Swap12 or our lowest monthly price with Swap24 and Swap every 2 years. 

And you can also choose to change your Mix of data, calls and texts whenever you like, or Roll over your unused data to save it for a time you need it. 

Why choose Sky Mobile?

Sky Mobile gives you a completely new way to manage your own data. So you’ve got the peace of mind that comes from knowing you won’t run out of data and you’ll never be hit by unexpected charges. 

You can Swap your phone after 12 months or 24 months – it’s up to you. When it’s time to Swap, choose a brand new phone and send back the old one. For full details of how Swap works see our Sky Help article.

Who can get Sky Mobile?

You can apply for Sky Mobile if you’re 18 or over and a resident in the UK.

Who can benefit?

What are the benefits for Sky TV customers?

If you already have Sky TV or join Sky TV then you get free Unlimited Calls and Texts with any of our data plans. If you already have a Sky+ box, then you can also sync Sky+ recordings with your phone to create your own personal playlist of shows you love to watch, wherever you are.

How do I get these benefits?

As long as you have Sky TV, you can benefit from free Unlimited Calls and Texts with every Sky Mobile plan. This means you and your family can call and text for free as often as you like. Just select the Unlimited Calls and Texts plan as you check out. If you have Sky+, to watch your personal playlist of shows on your phone, either stream shows over 4G when you're out, or download over Wi-Fi to watch later without using up your data.

How can I set up Sync on my phone?

Download the latest version of the Sky+ app and connect to your home Wi-Fi. Sync will automatically create your own playlist in the ‘Watch Now’ tab of your Sky+ app. Simply select the show you want to watch and it’ll stream to your phone.

See our Sky Mobile features to find out more.

How does it work?

How does Sky Mobile work?

Choose the phone you want and pick from Swap12 or Swap24.

Then, choose the data plan that suits your needs, then pick Unlimited Calls and Texts, or, if you prefer, Pay As You Use. You can change your mind at any time and any used data will automatically Roll into your Sky Piggybank to use whenever you like, for up to 3 years.

What is Swap?

Swap is available with any phone and on any data plan.

When you first choose your phone, you’ll be able to pick from: 

  • Swap12, which lets you Swap your phone for the latest model every year; or
  • Swap24 to get our lowest monthly price, and Swap for a new one every 2 years.

When it’s time to Swap, simply choose a brand new phone and we’ll deliver it to your door for free. Then simply send back your old phone.

For full details of how Swap works see our Sky Help article.

How do I Swap?

1. We'll let you know when it’s time to Swap.

2. Go to to give us details about the Sky Mobile phone you want to Swap.

3. Choose your brand new phone, along with your new Swap plan, and we'll deliver it right to your door for free. 

4. And when you're all set up, send us your old phone back.

What will affect the amount Sky pays for my phone?

The condition of your phone, and its actual market value, may affect the price that we will pay you for it. 

What if I don't want to Swap?

If you prefer to hang on to your old phone, we'll adjust your monthly payments until your contract ends.

Can I change my Sky Mobile plan?

Yes. No matter which Sky Mobile plan you choose, you can change your Mix of data, calls and texts every month. Any downgrades will be effective from the following month.

What if I go over my data plan?

It’s easy to get more data any time you like by Mixing up your plan, adding data from your Sky Piggybank, or buying a 1GB Add On. 

What will Sky Mobile coverage be like?

4G comes as standard and you’ll also get unlimited Sky WiFi at thousands of hotspots in popular places across the country. You can check your predicted network coverage in your area using our Coverage Checker.

Can I use my phone abroad?

Yes, if you travel abroad and have roaming activated, you won’t need to contact us or do anything. You can find out about roaming charges in our tariff guide.

What if I need to call abroad from the UK?

All Sky Mobile customers can make calls and send texts to international numbers. You can find out about international charges in our tariff guide. After you’ve joined Sky Mobile, you can add our International Saver to your plan and enjoy discounted rates on calls and texts to over 60 destinations. 

See our Sky Mobile features to find out more.

Discounted rates for calls and texts to over 60 popular international destinations (to both standard landline and mobile numbers). Recurring optional extras stay on your account each month until cancelled. Full details are available at 

How do I get it?

Can I get a phone with Sky Mobile?

When you choose a plan, you’ll be able to add a phone with Swap – a radically new way to have the phone you want, when you want. See our Sky Mobile features to find out more.

Can I keep my existing phone?

Yes. To use your Sky Mobile SIM in a phone bought from a different service provider, you may need to contact them first to unlock your phone.

Do I need a Sky iD?

Yes. Sky iD is your sign-in for all our online services. You'll need a Sky iD to activate your SIM when it arrives and to manage your account online. If you're already a Sky TV customer with a Sky+ box, use your existing Sky iD to benefit from Sync.

How do I get the right size SIM?

Your SIM comes in three different sizes – nano, micro and standard. The size you’ll need will depend on your phone. If you’re not sure, check your phone’s user guide. Then pop out the right size SIM for your phone.

Can I keep my existing mobile number?

Yes. If you’d like to keep your existing number, just have your PAC to hand (which you can get from your old provider). You’ll need to activate your Sky Mobile SIM before transferring your number.

Will a new account be set up if I already have Sky?

When you log into My Sky, you’ll see all your Sky products in one place. However, you’ll be billed separately for Sky Mobile.
