A guide to UK Pay As You Go plans

Whilst to many people having their mobile phone with them is an essential part of life, be it from talking to text messaging or to using it for it's internet capabilities. However, some people are more than just happy enough having a Pay As You Go phone as their usage may be minimal. Here is a guide to UK Pay As You Go plans.

Which network and which tariff to choose

Deciding which network is best for you on Pay As You Go mobile phone tariffs might seem like a complex process but with a few simple guidelines choosing which one will suit your needs, best is a fairly simple process. Network coverage Always try to find out what the network coverage is like by different operators from where you will be using the phone most. Whilst one network might have excellent coverage, another might be very poor in this respect. Whilst network coverage is usually fine in towns and cities, the network coverage should have particular attention paid to especially when you expect to use your phone in more rural areas as coverage can be patchy. Price plans So, you've decided to go for a Pay As You Go phone but have you considered how much you will actually be using your phone? Some tariffs offer a certain amount of free talk time minutes or a set number of texts. Other things to look out for are other deals to be had with each network. These often include such things as unlimited texts to same network phones or free weekend calls. Does your phone need a regular credit top-up? Some networks insist that you top up by a minimum amount each month. Failure to do so could mean you losing your number and any credit that you had in your account for example. However, some tariffs have options whereby you only have to top up once every three months. Consider this and how much you will be using your phone for outgoing communication.

Rewards and freebies

Some of the main mobile phone networks offer incentives to stay with them. For instance, this could be things like adding 10% to your credit for every £10 you top up. Other rewards can include the offer of a free handset for customers that have remained loyal over a certain amount of time. Be sure to check out various mobile phone plans to see what is on offer.
