What is a Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) SIM-free phone?

A SIM is the small microchip which contains information such as your settings and personal data, including contacts and photos etc. Without a SIM card, your handset is an empty shell waiting to be activated. A SIM effectively powers your handset.
Most mobile phone contracts include both a handset and a SIM, which covers your connectivity, calls, texts and mobile data. However, it is possible to separate the SIM and the handset and go for either a handset deal or SIM-free deal (which are effectively the same thing) or buy the Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) handset up front and outright.

What are the benefits of buying a Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) SIM-free phone?
Buying a Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) SIM-free phone is overall much cheaper than the other, often costly, mobile contract options. Plus, you'll have more flexibility with your phone plan, as generally your phone won't be locked to a specific network. This means you're free to shop around different networks to buy a SIM, and you can change your SIM more often. (It is, however, important you check the small print of your handset and check it isn't dependent on a specific SIM card.)
A SIM-free handset means you're going to need a SIM to go with it.
Can Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) SIM free phones be used on any network?
Not necessarily; don't assume that all SIM-free handsets can be used on any network - like an unlocked phone. Some SIM-free handsets will be tied to a specific network, and it's important to check this information. Generally, you should be free to buy a Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) SIM-free handset from any network such as EE, O2 and Vodafone, but this is not a given. Don't forget to read the small print when you buy a handset.
Unlocked Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) SIM-free phones?
An unlocked Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) phone can be used on any network. Whether you opt for a SIM-only contract deal, a Pay-as-you-go SIM or a 30-day SIM contract, you're free to mix and match your handset with any network provider. An Apple device, for example, will lock to the first SIM provider inserted. So always check the small print for exceptions like this.
Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) Upgrade?
A Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) (8GB Dark Grey) contract upgrade is the term used when you keep your mobile number and stay with your existing network.
