In this day, cell phones are becoming a necessity. In some cases, people don't have a land line anymore, their primary phone is their cell phone. Even if you don't use a phone often, it is always nice to have one in case of emergencies. In this article, I will be covering how to find a good cell phone deal.
What to look for in a phone plan
Multiple sources When you are looking at mobile phone plans, you should always be looking out for multiple sources. Don't just compare plans from one service provider. Find multiple service providers and compare their rates and plans. If the same plan at one provider is one rate, but you can get the exact same plan from a different provider for less, would you not want to get your service through the cheaper provider? The contract Don't rush into a plan, if you sign a 2 or 3 year contract, it can be very costly to get out of it. Make sure that you know what you are getting into and that you are not going to want to change plans in 6 months or a year. Sometimes, plans are flexible and you can move between levels of a plan. If you find that you are using more minutes, some plans allow you to move up to the next level, for an extra 5 or 10 dollars you might get new features and extra minutes. When you find that usage is down, you can downgrade back to previous levels. If this is something you think that you might need, make sure that it is available in your plan.
Where to purchase your phone
