Choosing a Mobile Phone

By: Nick Cox

Before you purchase a mobile phone it's important to consider how you plan on using it. Will you be using it simply for making calls and sending and receiving text messages? Or, do you plan on using your phone for business? If it's the latter, then your requirements will probably need to include the ability to access the internet and check emails etc.

Mobile phone technology is constantly improving and evolving, and you will find that many of today's mobile phones come equipped with a broad range of features as standard. Choosing a phone that caters perfectly for your needs can therefore sometimes be a challenge. So, before you take the plunge and sign up for a year's contract, here are a few things you might want to consider.

What type of user are you?
Basic - if you plan on using your phone for occasional calls and text messages, then a basic handset will be more than adequate. Extras such as cameras are now common place on even the most basic of handsets. So even if you consider yourself a relative 'technophobe', you could still find yourself with a handset that is capable of doing far more than you really need. Although, people often find mobile phones that are capable of taking photos to be extremely useful.

Office - mobile phones have advanced greatly over the years with facilities that are beginning to emulate that of personal computers. There are now mobile phones available that cater perfectly for the business user. This means that no matter where you happen to be, you can always keep up to date with all the latest business developments.
