Easily Find the Best Mobile Phone Plans

With a mobile phone in just about everyone’s life these days, what was once a handy extra communications tool has become the primary means of communication for many people. But sorting through the hundreds of mobile phone plans to find one that works well for your particular needs – and saves you money at the same time – can be a daunting task. With so many providers offering a vast range of cheap phone plans as well as tempting value-added bundles, it’s easy to get lost in the sheer amount of options available to you. That’s where our easy comparison tool comes in – just pick the features that matter to you most and we’ll show you the phone plans that match what you’re after – fast and hassle-free.

Post-paid and Contract Phone Plans

If you’re looking for the best phone plans, they’re often to be found in the post-paid domain, with contracted plans offering an edge price-wise over month-by-month plans. The difference is in the commitment you make – there’s no need to go on a contract, but when you do there’s often some enticing extras that come with the service. Month-by-month post-paid plans are often a better option if you’re always keeping an eye out for the best deals on offer, since you can swap providers any time you like without penalty. In both cases with these plans you’ll receive a monthly bill, which is why credit checks are usually required when you sign up for a service.

Prepaid Phone Plans

Not exactly “plans” since with prepaid, you control what you spend, when you spend it and exactly how much – and there’s no bill to remember to pay, either. Just top up your account with credit whenever you need to – but do take note of the length of time that credit lasts. Most prepaid top-ups last for 30 days, but there are some providers that offer the option of longer-lasting top-ups at the expense of higher call costs. They’re extremely handy, though, for those who don’t make a lot of outgoing calls. Prepaid gives you complete control over your costs, but it’s worth comparing prepaid offering to month-by-month post-paid deals if you’re a daily phone user.

FAQs About Mobile Phone Plans

Yes, you can – though for the highest-end smartphones you’ll usually have to pay an extra fee on top of your plan rate to help pay off the cost of the handset. But you can get some extremely capable brand-name phones for no extra cost on many post-paid plans. Even with the high-end phones that you pay off over the course of your mobile phone contract, you’re usually not paying any more for the device than you would if you bought it outright.
With many providers – both post-paid and prepaid – there are phone plans that give you a vast amount of included international calls and texts – in some cases, to some countries, literally unlimited. There’s great value to be had if international calling is something you do a lot – be sure to focus on the providers that make it a feature of their mobile plans.
Thanks to laws introduced some years ago that require providers to let you keep your mobile number when you switch, it’s no drama at all to move over to any provider you choose – just as long as you’re not still under contract to your current one. If you’re still on a mobile phone contract and want to move to a new provider, you’ll usually have to pay an early-exit fee – which, depending on the time left on your contract, may still end up saving you money.
