Mobile Phone Tariffs: Helpful Hints for You

By: David Webster


Are you among the 65 million mobile phone subscribers in the United Kingdom who are so into their mobile phone handsets? The British Broadcasting Corporation or BBC has stated in a 2008 report that billions in pounds are wasted because Brits are not smart about their choices of mobile phone tariffs. It is either because they are charged so much extra because they go above their allotted monthly minutes, or they go above their allotted number of free messages. Are you one of the millions who are guilty of this?

Here is a word of advice: choose your phone tariffs wisely. Familiarize yourself with the mobile service provider you want to sign up with. Don't just go with the flow because a popular celebrity is endorsing it, or that they have tempting and promos that seem too good to pass up. May it be O2, Orange, T-Mobile, 3, or Vodafone, it pays to examine all the available phone tariffs before you make your decision.

Regarding subscriptions to plans for mobile phones uk citizens from the 22 years old to 29 years old group are said to provide the bulk of the revenue. From these statistics, the same BBC report as mentioned earlier, a huge number of them are not aware of how many free minutes or free text messages they have per month. Because of this lack of information, they overshoot their monthly budget, making more calls than they really should. Try not to belong to the significant number of people who make this mistake. You must examine your subscription plan closely, and check your monthly bills every time you get them in the mail.

Furthermore, it is a known trend that people choose mobile phone tariffs more for the free phones that go with them, not because the number of call minutes or free text messages is reasonable. Of course, getting an LG Prada or LG Shine may be cool at first, but you might get shocked because your monthly bill is more than you can afford. Try to pick out a plan that works well for you, then worry about the type of phone later. Get a tariff that offers free phones, rather than one that offers installment payments for bigger and newer models.

Be a smart mobile phone user. It pays to be well informed so that you can manage your phone usage better, as well as your monthly finances.
