What to look for in pay as you go phones

If you are planning on buying a "pay as you go" phone, there are many factors that you must take into consideration before doing so. Such factors include coverage area, service fees and activation fees. The importance of learning about these will be discussed in this article in greater detail.

The fees aspect

Before you buy your phone, you must apprise yourself of all fees associated! Just because you see a cheap price in big letters on the box, don't decide to ignore the fine print! In order to know the exact fees that you will need to pay, you will first need to determine if there is an activation fee associated with the phone. Tax Sometimes, bug phone companies will 'get' you by advertising a very tiny monthly fee, but there is an additional monthly activation fee if it is not paid for for a very small amount of time. Another fee to be on the lookout for is the tax on it. The tax varies by country, but is sometimes included in the quoted monthly rate. All of these fees can be checked out by either visiting the service provider's website or in the brochure that comes with the phone itself.

Prepaid plans

The next thing to consider is how much you wish to spend on your phone plan per month. Normally, there are a few flat rate plans and a pay-per-minute plan. For example, if you're planning on using a business mobile phone, you'll want to make sure that you have unlimited minutes. If you are a casual user, you may find that the pay-per-minute plan is cheaper. It is always smart to graph out your future phone expenditures. Broadband Another factor that you should consider when picking out a phone is whether you want broadband access on it. This is for using the Internet away from home. Just like when you map out how many minutes you want to have, you should map out how much data you use. Often, there is an unlimited data plan and a limited data plan on prepaid providers. Another note is that you cannot get all mobile phones prepaid though, you can get one on a contractual basis.
