What To Look For In Your Phone Contract

When searching for a cell phone contract that fits your lifestyle, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. With so many options on the market, there are nearly unlimited options to choose from. But before you sign a contract and get roped into a plan that will hold you prisoner for years to come, think about a few key details that could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run. Here are some of the things to look for.

  • Data Services – If you’re anything like the rest of the world at this point in time, you probably use your phone more as a tiny computer than anything else. Look for a plan that has a fair amount of data for you to use seeing as most people end up going above their limit on a regular basis. Providers like mobi-data.co.uk will provide you with a free SIM card if you don’t already have one and has plenty of options to choose from regarding how much data you need. Don’t settle for the big providers like AT&T where you will run into all sorts of extravagant fees if you end up over your limit


  • Long or Short Contracts – Don’t get yourself in over your head when it comes to a contract. If you are planning on moving in the future, research the coverage in the area you’re moving to thoroughly to make sure you’re not getting into a bad plan for your future. You can consider a prepaid or pay as you go phone if you’re really uncertain for the time being as this almost certainly is less than whatever cancellation fees your company will charge you if you decide you don’t like the service.


  • Minutes – This is probably the most obvious one for you to check out. If you’re using your phone to make calls, there are a million different plans to make sure you’re not being charged too highly. Many providers offer free service for mobile-to-mobile calls or free night and weekend minutes. Take a close look at your previous cell phone bill to see what kind of minutes you used in the last month and use that to estimate what you’ll be doing in the future. Also check out where you were making those phone calls as you’ll probably want a special plan if you use your phone mostly for international calls.


Choosing a cell phone plan is anything but simple. With so many options it’s almost like you’re signing your life away when you start a contract and unless you want to end up paying insane cancellation fees, you should probably try to get it right on the first try. Do your research fully and ask friends and family what they use and what they would suggest. For every positive review on the Internet there’s an equally bad one for the same company so most of it depends on how it fits into your life. Just make sure you don’t sign your life away to the wrong company.
