Well,my wife was in the same shoes
She had a vodafone contract(3g),I've been on EE for long time she decided to join,too.
Got the PAC code and bought a new contract on www.mobilephonesdirect.co.uk
EE,24 months 2GB data+unlimited calls/sms. Phone was free(and factory unlocked) and she pays £23.99/month.
The smartphones should use 4G nowadays,thats my opinion.
But first of all ensure you have 4G coverage in your area.

You might need to check in HOTUKDEALS where there is a thread about mobile price plan, view the google docs and there have lots of info (Might not be latest updated but close to it).

Sim Free if you want a guarantee that you'll be able to unlock the bootloader.
