You may be a complete novice in the mobile phone world, or you may already have used the pay-as-you-go payment plan, even perhaps used one of them “burner” phones, but you know that there is a vast choice on mobile phones and plans out there. It is very hard to pick one phone and/or plan, but as most things in life go, if you are well informed and have done your research properly, you can enjoy the benefits of the modern communication capabilities and all the services and fun such a mobile device can offer. Instead of buying a phone that is modern now and spend hundreds of Pounds on it, and then pay for your phone calls as you go, you will wind up paying seriously more for your service than you would have paid on a mobile phone contract plan.
It is about the money
On average, a really good and versatile plan would cost you some 30 quid per month for the next two years – whereby shorter commitments are possible. Since that there is a competitive market with several providers trying to get your money, the offers range from very reasonable to incredibly awesome. The awesome deals are sometimes advertised, but most of the time they heed to be hunted down. The more you get for your money, the better the deal is, but first you need to find out what is out there that you can get and do you really need or want it? Some requirements are pretty basic. You will want unlimited calls and unlimited texts. Add to this that you would like unlimited internet traffic and you have already your plan nailed down. But wait! Some providers have unlimited Wi-Fi. If you are within the coverage area, you can use that Wi-Fi and with your phone you do not need much internet traffic, making your plan significantly cheaper.
It matters which phone you pick
Yes, you may not need a fancy phone with all the glitz and glamour. Actually, nobody really needs the latest quad- or octa-core mobile phone with all the bells and whistles. But if you can have one of them top of the line phones for free or for the price of an average lunch, then you might as well try it out. Such a modern smartphone does have gazillions of gadgets, capabilities and really useful applications, which, after you got used to them, you will not want to be without. A mobile phone is not just a telecommunication device anymore, for that matter, making actual phone calls is the least interesting bit. Everything else that phone is capable of, this is what you will find liking in, it is as if you have a complete laptop computer, phone, camera, gaming console, TV and then some packed into a device you can put into your pocket. With the whole world at your fingertips, you most certainly will opt to take a mobile phone contract that comes with such a phone.
