A couple of things to be aware of
If you sign up for a lengthy monthly contract, try and remember when it runs out. Why? Well, remember, your monthly bill is calculated to take into account that you’re paying for the phone. So, at the end of the 18 or 24 months, your phone is paid for. You could then switch to a SIM only package which will be much cheaper than a contract.
Don’t expect your mobile company to necessarily tell you this either. If you don’t think about it, you could continue to pay over the odds when you could either switch to a cheaper deal or get a new phone.
Finally, if you take out a monthly contract it will be subject to credit checks. This is because essentially you’re buying your new phone on credit via your monthly contract. If you have a poor credit history or no history at all you might need to sign up for a PAYG contract instead.
