Finding the cheapest cell phone plans
Many people believe that choosing the right handset is the most important aspect when getting set up with a mobile phone, but people often therefore neglect to realise that choosing the best and cheapest cell phone plan is what truly leads to the greatest user optimisation, flexibility and cost-effectiveness. It’s the engine in the sports car, and you don’t want to stall at the lights. To find the cheapest cell phone plan for yourself, your family or your business, the key is being open-minded in considering setups such as prepaid top-up plans that you may have neglected in the past, as well as being willing to think outside of the top handful of market-established providers. There is no single low cost cell phone plan for everybody because every individual and family has unique needs that must be addressed when assessing mobile services so take the time to find one that suits you, not people the networks think are like you.
Before you set off searching for cheap cell phone plans, you should take time to define your needs. Take time to make a list of what it is that you want from your plan. You need to determine whether you need an individual plan, group or family plan and consider your budget alongside your expectations. When you are ready to go shopping, stick to the cheapest plan that offers the features that you need. Do not be tempted to buy a plan with a good sales pitch but with unnecessary features, that’s a contract technique and not what we’re about.
You have the option of choosing a pre-paid or post-paid cell phone plan. If you opt for a post-paid plan, you will be entering into a long-term contract with the service provider. The contract can last between 1 and 2 years. Most carriers promote and market the post-paid plan because it is more profitable to them. We do not enter into post-paid plans and will not ask you to do so. With a post-paid plan, your carrier will send you a bill on a monthly basis. If you opt to cancel or terminate your post-paid contract, you will be required to pay an early termination fee that can amount to the value of your remaining contract.
If you opt for a pre-paid plan however, you will need a cell phone and a SIM card. Afterwards, you can buy minutes or a plan (either online or in-store). Pre-paid or ‘pay as you go’ plans are commonly less advertised because they often supply far greater value for money and give the power to choose back to the user, by freeing you from any sort of lengthy contract. If you don’t like your plan, change it. Make sure to check out the numerous promotions offered by pre-paid plans. Some of these promotions include free international calls, data, SMS and national minutes.
A pre-paid cell phone plan is flexible and one of the best ways to save funds on cellular services. It’s cost-effective because it allows you to pay for the minutes you need/use as opposed to signing a contract that requires you to pay a certain monthly plan regardless of your actual usage.
Some pre-paid plans offer exclusive international rates with free minutes as bonuses either nationally or internationally. While deciding on your next plan, you should think about the type of communication you frequently make. If you mostly make domestic calls, you should opt for plans that offer the best deals on the domestic network, but if you regularly make international calls there are a number of plans available tailored specifically to reduce and sometimes even eradicate roaming chargers all together. Lycamobile prides itself on having some of the best international bundles available as well as a number of great cross-overs, which provide benefits to both national and international calling users.
Simply put, there’s no magic when selecting the cheapest cell phone plan. You only need to determine your monthly usage, desired features, cost-effectiveness and convenience. If you balance these factors and stick to them, then you’ll find yourself with the cheapest cell phone plan for you.
