That's because a mobile phone is the number one piece of technology used by most students each and every term, and while you can't really use a phone to write coursework and essays on, for almost everything else they are invaluable. That's why we've put the best phone deals into our back to school guide, along with the best SIM only deals. Combine these two roundups and a student can bag a cheap phone and SIM plan that can carry them through their time studying without breaking the bank.
