We definitely need a cell phone nowadays, but it is too complicated to choose the right one with so many companies that provide the service and so many plans offered.
Here are some steps on how to choose your provider and a service plan for your cell phone
Step 1.Find out your needs and wants! Decide how you are going to use your phone.
Is that only for emergencies? Or you are going to constantly be on the phone with your friends and family or your clients? Are you going to use the wireless service abroad, while travelling?
Step 2 Decide if you need extra services, or you are going to use your phone just for calls.
Do you need to use text messages once in a while or do you need an unlimited text message plan? Do you need internet be available with your cell phone package?
Step 3 Decide on usage frequency.
If you plan to use the phone occasionally, choose the plan with the minimum minutes included. If you make frequent calls, it may be more beneficial to sign up for a plan that provides an amount of free minutes that you generally need to use in a month. Heavy users should sign up for unlimited minutes plan.
Step 4. Research the availability of providers.
First, find out which carriers provide service in your area. Then take into consideration the coverage. You can get the best plan possible but how would you feel when unable to make an important call form some locations.
Step 5 Decide "to contract or not to contract" based on comparison shopping.
Sometime it is better to have pay- as- you- go phone. Like in case of you being heavy user â€ś50 means 50â€ť Boost mobile plan is good, because you have unlimited minutes and text messages and also can enjoy internet access on your phone without experience the bond of contract.
If you donâ€™t haveÂ to have unlimited service and just need basic minutes on your phone, but want to enjoy your service cheap and a free or discounted phone you can get â€śunder the contractâ€ť with T-mobile 600 minutes phone plan for $39.99 a month ( text messaging is not included).
Do you comparison shopping on the internet and choose the right providerÂ and plan for yourself!
