Upgrading your phone feels good – but saving the planet feels better

Resist the urge to upgrade when your contract ends. Switch to SIM only from the UK’s only telecoms co-operative and you’ll help reduce e-waste as well as saving money.


E-waste – discarded mobiles and other tech products – is set to climb to over 52 million tonnes by 2021. Yet in many cases there’s nothing wrong with your phone when it’s out of contract. It’s just too easy to throw it away and get a new one.

All our SIM Only plans come with unlimited texts, unlimited minutes and 99% UK population coverage on The Phone Co-op EE network from £10 per month, and if you want to keep your number, we can do that too. Just request a PAC (Porting Authorisation Code) from your current provider and we’ll deal with the transfer for you. You'll be able to enter your PAC during checkout but don’t worry if you haven’t got one yet, we can help with that later - just give us a call when you have it.

At the Phone Co-op, we pride ourselves on being an ethical network provider and we offer honest and transparent prices with no hidden charges. We are also a Fair Tax accredited business and have been awarded an Investors in People accreditation. We are owned and controlled by our members, and when you contact our UK based customer service team you are greeted by our co-op colleagues, ready to help.
