VOXI offers one-month rolling plans with endless social media data and Vodafone coverage.

In the UK, VOXI is a low-cost sub-brand of Vodafone, offering flexible one-month plans with endless social media data.

Customers signing up for a SIM card from VOXI can get 6GB of data and endless social media data for just £10/month. This also includes unlimited minutes and unlimited texts, and is available on a Pay As You Go basis with no need for a credit check. The endless social media data covers Snapchat, Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook Messenger.

For even heavier data users, VOXI offers a 15GB SIM card for £15/month, a 45GB SIM card for £20/month and an unlimited, endless data SIM card for £35/month. The endless data SIM card also gives you access to Vodafone’s 5G mobile network, offering download speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 4G.

In this article, we’ll review the VOXI mobile network including the one-month plans with endless social data. We’ll also discuss VOXI’s unlimited data price plan before looking at optional extras, handset compatibility and the level of coverage you can expect. Finally, we’ll summarise how you can keep your current phone number when moving from another mobile network to VOXI.

VOXI Plans & Features

SIM Only Plans

VOXI currently offers a choice of four one-month rolling plans, ranging from £10/month to £35/month for different amounts of data.

On the cheapest £10 per month plan, you’ll currently get 6GB of data. This increases to 15GB of data on the £15 plan and 45GB of data on the £20 plan. On these plans, you’ll also receive “endless social media data” in addition to unlimited minutes and unlimited texts.

On the most expensive £35 per month plan, you’ll get unlimited data (or what VOXI calls “endless data”). The unlimited data allowance can be used on anything you like and isn’t restricted to only social media apps. On the £35 plan, you’ll also get access to 5G coverage, providing you have a 5G-ready handset and providing you’re in a 5G coverage area.

There’s no need to undergo a credit check when signing up for VOXI. This is because the service works on a pre-paid basis. You’ll pay for your bundles in advance using a credit card or debit card, and it won’t be possible to run up unexpected charges beyond this. For any out-of-bundle usage (e.g. if you’re travelling abroad outside Europe), you’ll need to first top-up your account with additional Pay As You Go credit.

Endless Social Media

VOXI’s £10, £15 and £20 plans come with endless social media. This gives you unlimited zero-rated data for use on the following social media and messaging applications:

  • Endless Social Media apps (“Social Pass”): Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Pinterest.
  • Endless Chat apps (“Chat Pass”): WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Data usage within these applications will not count towards the normal download limit on your plan.

To benefit from endless social media, you’ll need to have an active plan on VOXI. You’ll also need to have some of your regular data allowance remaining. If you’ve already used up your regular data allowance, you’ll also lose access to endless social data. To restore it, you can either pay £3 to add 1GB of extra data to your plan or you can wait until the following month when your data allowance refreshes.

VOXI says they reserve the right to change the applications included in the offer.

Endless Data with 5G

VOXI’s £35 plan comes with unlimited data, or what they often refer to as endless data.

Endless data on the £35 plan differs from endless social media on VOXI’s other price plans. This is because you’re not limited to only using it with certain types of app. You can use the unlimited data allowance for whatever you like (including things like video streaming, music streaming, gaming and web browsing).

In addition, you’ll get access to 5G coverage on VOXI when signing up for the £35 endless data plan. You’ll need a 5G-ready handset to access VOXI’s 5G service and will need to be in a Vodafone 5G coverage area.

VOXI Video and Music Passes

In addition to the endless social media which is included on VOXI’s £10, £15 and £20 plans, there are two paid-for extras in the form of the Endless Video Pass and the Endless Music Pass:

  • VOXI’s Endless Video Pass (£7/month) gives you endless data for use on Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Go Video, DisneyLife, My5, TVPlayer and UKTV Play.
  • VOXI’s Endless Music Pass (£5/month) gives you endless data for use on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer, Soundcloud, Amazon Prime Music and Napster.

If you add one of these optional passes to your plan, data usage within the listed applications will become zero-rated. This means it will no longer count towards your normal monthly download allowance. The regular subscription fee for using these services will still apply and continues to be paid for separately to the service provider.

Pay As You Go Rates

VOXI works on a pre-paid basis. If you like, you can decide to opt out of their monthly plans to use the service on Pay As You Go. However, if you decide to do this, you’ll no longer be able to use mobile data on your phone (though you’ll still be able to use data over wi-fi). You’ll still be able to make and receive phone calls and text messages on traditional Pay As You Go.

The following table shows VOXI’s Pay As You Go rates:

Calling Rates:
Voice Calls 30p/minute (any network, any time)
Calls to Voicemail 30p/minute
Calls to Special Rate Numbers 45p/minute access charge
+ service charge from the company you’re calling
Messaging Rates:
Text Message (SMS) 14p
Picture Message (MMS) 45p
Internet Rates:
Mobile Internet Not available until you buy another 30-day bundle.

If you’d like to call internationally, you can buy VOXI’s £3/month International Minutes Extra add-on. This gives you 100 international minutes for calling one of 100 destinations. Alternatively, you can Pay As You Go with international calling available from 1.5p/minute.

For customers who decide to opt-out of VOXI’s monthly plans, your VOXI SIM card will remain active for 180 days since your last chargeable activity. After 180 days of inactivity on the SIM card, you’ll be given a warning that you’ll need to use your SIM card in the next 90 days. If more than 270 days have passed without a chargeable activity, your SIM card will be suspended and your phone number will be deleted. Any Pay As You Go credit remaining on the account will also be lost at the same time.

We’d recommend against choosing VOXI if you’re looking for a traditional Pay As You Go service without the need to top-up your phone every month. There are far cheaper alternatives out there which will allow you to use mobile data without buying a one-month bundle (e.g. 1pMobile).

Comparison to Alternatives

VOXI is often compared to the mainstream mobile networks and to other low-cost sub-brands like giffgaff and SMARTY (giffgaff belongs to O2 and SMARTY belongs to Three).

In the following section, we’ll compare VOXI’s SIM-only plans against rival mobile networks.

£10 per month bundles

For £10/month, VOXI offers 6GB of data along with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and endless social data.

At the time of writing, this is one of the better value deals at the £10 per month price point. On rival mobile networks like SMARTY, it is possible to get a larger allowance of data, though the coverage will come from Three rather than Vodafone.

Handsets

There are two ways to join the VOXI mobile network. You can either order a free SIM card for your existing unlocked smartphone or you can buy a new mobile phone directly from VOXI.

Most people decide to keep their existing smartphone. You can use any device providing it’s unlocked (or a handset that’s locked to Vodafone UK will also work on VOXI). You can order a free SIM card from VOXI through this link.

If you’re buying a mobile phone from the VOXI website, there are a selection of handsets available to buy from Apple, Google, Huawei and Samsung. Unless you decide to pay the full cost of the handset upfront (which tends to be much more expensive at VOXI than at other SIM-free retailers), you’ll be taking a 30-month consumer credit agreement with PayPal Credit. You’ll need to undergo a credit check to use this service.

If you’d like to buy a new smartphone to use on VOXI, we’d strongly recommend comparing prices across the rest of the market and also looking at handsets sold by other retailers as well. You can buy an unlocked smartphone from any UK retailer for use on the VOXI mobile network with a free SIM card.

Network & Coverage

2G, 3G & 4G Coverage

VOXI is a low-cost sub-brand of Vodafone offering flexible SIM-only deals on a one-month rolling basis. As Vodafone is the underlying coverage provider for VOXI, customers will get access to the same coverage as customers on Vodafone.

At the time of writing, VOXI offers 99% population coverage on 2G, 3G and 4G.

Before signing up to the VOXI service, we’d strongly recommend checking the coverage in your area. You can do this by entering your postcode on VOXI’s online coverage map:

Check VOXI Coverage (voxi.co.uk) →

Unfortunately, Wi-Fi Calling and 4G Calling are not currently available to customers on VOXI.

For more information, see our in-depth article on Vodafone’s UK mobile coverage and how to compare coverage across networks.

5G Coverage

On VOXI, 5G coverage is only available to customers choosing the £35/month endless data plan.

With VOXI’s 5G network, it’s possible to get download speeds of up to 1,000Mbit/s (1Gbit/s). However, average download speeds will normally be closer to 150-200Mbit/s in practice (up to 10 times faster than a normal 4G connection).

VOXI’s 5G service is available in the same places as on Vodafone. The following UK towns and cities have access to 5G coverage on VOXI:

For more information, see Vodafone’s 5G coverage map. Alternatively, see our guide to the rollout of 5G coverage in the UK. If you’re looking for a 5G-ready plan, it will often be cheaper to get this directly from Vodafone.

Tethering & Personal Hotspot

Tethering or personal hotspot refers to the process of sharing your smartphone’s internet connection with another device. It’s a good way to get mobile broadband on other devices like your laptop or tablet.

On VOXI, it’s possible to tether without any restrictions. Any data usage that’s consumed through tethering or personal hotspot will simply come out of your normal download allowance. This is confirmed on the benefits page of VOXI’s website:

Personal Hotspot
Turn your VOXI mobile into a personal Wi-Fi hotspot to share your data with other devices.

International Roaming

On VOXI, you can use your mobile phone abroad through international roaming. This is something that isn’t possible on Vodafone Basics plans making this a key attraction of choosing VOXI over Vodafone Basics.

According to VOXI, 4G coverage is available in 137 destinations with 2G or 3G coverage available in many others. 4G roaming is available to all VOXI customers.

On the £35 endless data plan, you can also access 5G coverage in 47 towns and cities across Europe. 5G coverage is currently available in locations across Spain, Italy and Germany (including Milan, Rome, Naples, Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Berlin, Hamburg and Munich).

If you’re using your mobile phone in other European destinations, you can use your normal VOXI plan allowances at no extra charge. This includes the endless social data and any other add-ons you’ve purchased for your plan.

Meanwhile, if you’re travelling outside of Europe, extra charges will normally apply for using your VOXI price plan there. A list of the relevant charges for each country can be found on the VOXI website.

Keeping Your Phone Number

If you’re currently on a different mobile network and looking to switch to VOXI, it’s a straightforward process to keep your existing phone number.

To do so, start by ordering your new SIM card from the VOXI website. You’ll then need to obtain a PAC Code from your current mobile network. You can get one through your mobile network’s website or app, or by texting PAC to 65075.

Once you’ve received and activated your VOXI SIM card, you should then provide your PAC Code to VOXI. You can do this by submitting it through your VOXI account area. After submitting your PAC Code, your phone number will normally be transferred on the next working day.

For step-by-step instructions on how to move your phone number to VOXI, please select your current mobile network from the drop-down menu below:

  • Voxi now offering Unlimited Data on promo offer for £30 a month (£5 cheaper than previously.)

    Worth looking at as it’s only a monthly contract. Vodafone (Voxi’s provider) are cheaper but on 12/24 month contracts which rise annually by the RPI.

    Posted just in case it’s of interest to others.

  • Hi there, I heard that mobile data from 5GB and above never actually runs out and is basically unlimited. Is this true, please?

    • Hi Pearl,
      Thanks for your comment. I don’t believe this is right – I believe the amount of data you use will still be measured and charged for once you’ve used 5GB per month.
      Ken

        • Pearl be careful, Voxi had a glitch in their system for some months which inadvertently gave users unlimited data on all plans except the £35 REALLY Unlimited option.

          They got wind of it and have now fixed the problem and from the 11th June any data used other than for the social media apps will start to be eaten up over each monthly period.

          I use the Voxi £10 a month plan on my secondary phone and had a text from them advising about this on the 1st June so if you have signed up just be aware.

          Also it’s worth noting that video calls made on any of the social apps eats up data to, only the text messaging is free.

          Hope that helps.

    • Hi Ben,
      Great question! You’ll get the same coverage on VOXI and Vodafone so coverage and download speeds should normally be the same. Saying that, Vodafone haven’t shared any information about how traffic is prioritised on their network. So in theory, they could decide to prioritise some Vodafone customers over VOXI customers. I’ve not heard any feedback or evidence this might be the case, however, so I doubt it’s worth worrying about too much.
      Ken

      • I am on VOXI and I get great download speeds, normally between 25-40 Mb/s. When I was in The Netherlands last year it even went up to 100Mb/s, even though I was roaming abroad. I do not believe that VOXI is slowed down in any way compared to Vodafone.
