phones are an easy way that people can get huge bills and
end up spending lots
more than they actually want to.
There are 2 different ways you can get charged by using
a mobile phone, the first is "pay as you go" and
the other is contract where you pay monthly.
Pay as you go mobile phones are a good way to make sure
you know exactly where you are upto with spending. If you
are a light mobile phone user and don't often use one then
pay as you go is probably the way to go.
If however you use your phone more often and send and make
a number of calls and text messages most days then a contract
phone might work out the cheapest option.
Contract phones usually give you an allowance of minutes
to call on each month and maybe some text messages are included
too (depending on how you use your phone, text message deals
are available for those who send more messages) and you
pay a monthly fee, usually starting at around £15
per month and then the more you pay per month you will increase
the number of minutes and or text messages you are entitled
to. Once these minutes and messages are used up you will
then start having to pay extra on your bill for all the
useage you have over you limits, this is why it is very
important when choosing your mobile phone tariff to get
one that will cover your usual usage per month.
trick when it comes to buying a contract phone is quite
simple and pretty obvious really, take a look around and
see what compnaies have to offer and which one suits you
best. Most contracts are made up mainly of calling time,
but if however you send lots of text messages then the place
that offers the best texting deals are O2 (they have special
online deals). We reccommend you buy online as compared
to the high street companies don't have to pay for the up
keep of a shop with their online business so they themselves
are saving money which in turn means they can offer more
competitive deals than a company on the high street can.
This also includes high street companies who have a website,
you will more than likely find a better deal on their website
that you would in their shop.
keep costs down even more when getting a contract phone
you can get a free handset, this may mean you don't get
the very latest out this month phone, but with most deals
you are able to get a decent camera phone for free and even
some extra freebies like handsfree or a case.
