Find out everything you need to know about getting started on your iD Mobile plan, as well as how we’ll deliver your device to you.  

Who’ll be delivering my order?  

If you’ve ordered a SIM card, you can expect it to be delivered by Royal Mail. For smartphones and tablets, we use DPD Express Parcel Delivery Service to ensure you get your device.  

Does my package come with a delivery tracking service? 

If you’ve ordered a SIM, it will be sent first class via Royal Mail and it will usually take between 2-3 working days to be delivered. There is no tracking number and no need to sign for your delivery. The SIM will be delivered in an envelope amongst your other mail, so it’s best to keep an eye out for it. 

Orders that include a handset, tablet or another device will be sent via DPD’s next day delivery service. When there is confirmation of dispatch, DPD will send you an email or a text that includes your tracking number, DPD delivery PIN and delivery date. On the day of delivery, you’ll get a notification from DPD advising you of your delivery timeslot. 

Once you receive your DPD tracking number, you can track your delivery easily via the DPD website.

When will my order arrive?

If you've ordered a smartphone or tablet, the DPD (UK) express parcel delivery service will deliver it to you. 

For phones and tablets 

We know that once you place your order, you’ll want your device to arrive as soon as possible. That’s why we offer FREE next day delivery on all our phones and tablets. As long as you order before 5pm (Monday-Thursday) you'll get it the very next day, free of charge.
