SIM only vs PAYG

Is there much difference between SIM only and PAYG?

It seems like SIM only keeps going till you say otherwise, but PAYG you have to actively keep putting credit on. Is that basically right?

Well sim only is a contract, so only available to over 18s and could require a credit check. You pay for your selected tariff and what you've used above that after you get the bill. You can limit the amount on some networks though. Can be 30days notice, but can get better deals if you tie in for longer minimum term.

On P&go some networks enable you to set up a standing order to top the credit up on a monthly or even on demand basis. Otherwise yep you have to actively put the credit on.
