Planning a New Phone


Posted: 30 Nov 2012

When you want a new phone, there is an obvious urge to simply go out and buy it. Caution should always be advised, however, as this can often lead to expenses.

Before buying your phone, take some time to think about the additional costs that you might not have considered. Expenses don't end when you buy the phone, so preparation really is crucial here.

Running Costs

As stated above, the costs do not end once you have purchased the phone. Phones have a running cost, generally dictated by the texts and minutes which have been used.

As such, you're best option is to utilise free sim cards. Since these don't require you to purchase a phone with alongside them, all the running costs are usually quite manageable, as you're just paying for the texts and calls. This is in stark contrast to contract phones, which factor in the cost of the phone on top of a monthly fee.


Finally, be careful about the internet use on smart phones. These phones are very good at accessing the internet, but how you do so will affect the costs. Using the mobile signal or 3G, for instance, will come out on the bill, or be charged as part of your pay as you go service.

Instead, utilise your broadband at home, and wireless internet services when you're out. This gets charged to the internet bill instead. Since you're internet bill is much more likely to accommodate some extra data downloads than your phone bill, this will be a smart move, financially.
