Things You Need to Look for in Mobile Phone Deals

By: David Webster


The United Kingdom is truly in the cutting edge of technology, such that its citizens are never far behind when it comes to the latest and the trendiest gadgets, whether they are music players, digital cameras, or mobile phones. The UK mobile phone industry has shown very rapid growth over the past years. As of the year 2006, statistical reports claim that more than 82% of the population is using mobile phones. That number roughly equates to 43 million children, teenagers, and adults.

If you're looking for a mobile phone that is both cool and functional, you can look to subscribing from any of the largest service providers in the UK. As a matter of fact, more than three fourths of the revenues form mobile phone usage is received by the giants of Vodafone, Orange, and O2. These companies can offer you great mobile phone deals, letting you choose from tons of the latest and most innovative models. Plus, their plans span a range of prices, so you can select a contract that is applicable to your needs for minutes and messages, and at a price that can fit your budget.

Some examples of phone deals that you can get from O2 include getting the Apple iPhone for a lower price, if you sign up for a contract of 18 months. This contract gives you 600 free minutes and 500 free texts. O2 also offers the Nokia N81 for free, if you get an 18 month contract at about ?35 per month. From Orange, you get mobile deals that include free handsets like the LG KE970 Pink and the Nokia 6500 Classic, if you subscribe for a contract for 18 months.

Before signing up and committing yourself to be a subscriber to any of these mobile providers, consider the prices carefully. If the monthly fee is too high, and you are certain that you won't use up all the minutes and the texts within the month, then you can choose a contract that is more affordable.

Also, if you are more interested in getting the mobile phone model, whether it's a Samsung, LG, Nokia, or Sony Ericsson, and you want a prepaid pay as you go plan, then you can choose to purchase a SIM free phone. The pay as you go plan is a lot more convenient for most folks, because they only need to pay for whatever call minutes or text messages they used up. The monthly billing that comes in the mail is not a thing to worry about with a prepaid contract.
