Sure has become the first network to offer islanders unlimited texts to any local network and the UK for just 50p per day.

All Sure pay monthly and pay as you go customers can now text as often as they like to any local network and the UK without worrying about the cost.

The plan costs just £15 per month and can be used to text anyone in the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK. Islanders with the text plan will only have to pay for texts when roaming. It is available on both pay as you go and pay monthly plans and can be taken as a standalone plan or in combination with another.

“We’ve spoken with lots of mobile phone users who told us that they want more texts, to any network, for a straightforward up front price. We want our customers to be able to communicate with friends and family without worrying about the cost, which they can now do for the first time. It is great value for money,” said Paul Taylor, Marketing Director, Sure.

You can sign up for unlimited texts for as little as £15 a month or on an ongoing basis by calling Sure’s customer services centre, telephone: 0808 10 15 247 or by going into the shop on King Street.
