Studies suggest that nine out of ten people are wasting money on the wrong tariff and that just a third of people are using all their minutes and texts.
(PRWEB UK) 23 October 2012
Recent research by billmonitor.com has put the average annual household mobile phone bill above £1000, when totting up the collective cost of everyones different devices in the home.
With mobile phone companies becoming more competitive and competition for the latest phone and best deal at its peak, Dosh Express has released details on how to find the best deal.
- It is a good idea to analyse usage and look at how long is spent on the phone each month and how many texts are sent. Studies suggest that nine out of ten people are wasting money on the wrong tariff and that just a third of people are using all their minutes and texts.
Once average usage is determined, the user may be able to downgrade to a lower monthly tariff or arrange a tariff check up with the network every three months to review bills and find something cheaper.
- The best time to haggle for a cheaper deal is a month before the end of the contract, when customers are most likely to leave to seek a better deal. As mobile networks rely on keeping and attracting people into long term contracts, it is in their best interests to offer a good deal. By comparing deals that other providers offer and pushing the network for the best possible deal, customers may be able to get an exclusive deal. If left unsatisfied, it is worth considering changing providers and taking advantage of competitive new customer deals.
- It is worth using price comparison sites to compare handsets and deals between mobile networks to see which one can offer the best deal. The same mobile number can be retained if it looks beneficial to switch mobile providers by obtaining the Porting Authorisation Code (PAC) before closing the account with the previous provider.
- Make money to put towards a new handset by trading in an old working phone. There are many websites that will offer money for old handsets, and will pay money by BACs or cheque once they receive the phone.
