Find a new plan

The best way of saving money on your bill is to find a new plan. Data and calls are not products that come at a set cost so what some providers as the earth for, others will give you for free. Nowadays most contract phone users find themselves tided to a provider for 2 years so choose wisely and make sure that you spend more time understanding the billing charges and less time asking the sales rep how your shiny new device works.

Comparison sites

Before you step foot into your local high street mobile phone store, why not check out the deals offered online? Sites like moneysupermarket.com and uswitch.com will give you a great idea of how the market stands so you’ll be armed with the information you need. You could also get your new phone online rather than walking into a mobile phone store. That only works for some people though as most of us like to have a play with our new phone before signing on the dotted line.

Ask for a better deal

Even if you’re locked into a contract that has many months or even a year or more left on it, you have options. Rather than restricting your use of the phone in order to save money on the bill, why not talk to your provider about a change. Mobile phone firms are far more flexible than most of us realise. You might be asked to sign a new deal that ties you to them for a new fixed term, but you should be able to negotiate a better deal. You may also be able to get out of your contract early.
