Advantages of Sim Only
Do you use your mobile phone a lot? Do you always want to be available? And no longer having to think about topping up your credit? Then Sim Only fits you. With Sim Only you are able to call, text and internet for a low rate. The larger your plan, the cheaper the rate per minute, sms and mb. At Lebara you can adjust your plan every month for free (up and down). In addition, you can always keep calling, texting and using the internet, even when you finish your plan.
Advantages of Prepaid
Don't you call, text or use the internet very often? And are you the one that is rather called by someone else? Then Prepaid is something for you! If you don't use Prepaid, you will not pay. When your credit is finished, you can no longer call, send text messages and use the internet. This ensures that you cannot incur any additional costs. In addition, with Prepaid you can always switch to another provider; you are not committed to anything. Prepaid is also very suitable for when you go abroad for a shorter period.
FAQ about Prepaid vs. Sim Only
Call credit from Lebara (Lebara One and 10 = 20) has no expiration date. Keep in mind that you must use your SIM at least once every 90 days to keep it active. Prepaid data plans are valid for 30 days, except for the 500MB plan. This plan is valid for 28 days. All All in NL and All in International plans are also valid for 30 days.
All Sim Only bundles (2GB, 5GB, 7GB and 10GB) are valid for 1 month.
If you switch from Lebara Prepaid to Sim Only, your remaining credit will be credited as extra credit. Once you have switched, you first use your Sim Only plan and then your remaining Prepaid credit. For example, have you run out of your Sim Only data and did you still have Prepaid data credit for this period. Then you can use those credits instead of buying a Sim Only plan top-up.
