Info on Mobile Phone Contracts

By: David Webster


It is true that when the latest mobile phones come out, you will find hundreds to thousands of phone fanatics in the UK scrambling to get their hands on them. As an estimate, there are more than 65 million mobile phone users in the United Kingdom, with a notable portion of that from the ages of 29 and below. Of course, one can not deny that the mobile phone is not only a trendy thing to have, but an essential for the modern daily life.

Given the fact that mobile phones in the UK are regarded as must-haves, do you ever wonder how much revenue is earned form subscribers alone? Furthermore, do you know how much is wasted on subscription plans that have excess minutes or text messages? In the UK, mobile phone contracts or tariffs come with a specified number of text messages or free call minutes per month. If you go beyond that, you can expect to see extra charges on your monthly bill. For this reason, billions of pounds have been projected to be wasted because UK phone fanatics are not sensible regarding their mobile phone usage. In a BBC marketing survey, about 20% of Brits with phone plans are not sure how many minutes they should use per month, let alone how many text messages they can send.

Are you looking for phone deals that let you have the newest and hottest mobile phone models? You can always check out the websites for Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2, and Orange, among many others. There are lots of choices for you, whether you want a PDA phone, or simply a mobile that lets you enjoy games and music on the go. Some of these network providers let you purchase new phones at a discounted price, as long as you sign up for 12 months or 18 months on their plans. Plus, you get to pay for the mobile phone model on installment, so it is easier on the pocket.

Whatever deal you choose to sign up for, make sure you use your minutes and texts wisely. Try not to go above your monthly budget. Some companies charge you when you exceed the free texts or call minutes that fall under your mobile phone subscription. If you do, perhaps your tariff is not the most suitable for you, so think about upgrading to a plan that has more texts or more minutes.
