Choose Your Cell Phone Plan Wisely
Try these tips to help save a few extra dollars on your bill.
- Research plans.
A lot of plans seem very similar at first glance, but where they differ is the extras and add-ons. Find a package that fits your individual needs and don't forget to consider a prepaid plan if you don't use your phone very often.
- Plan your messaging.
All carriers charge for text messages, however many of them have plans to help you save. Choose a number that seems reasonable for you, or get the unlimited package if you text a lot.
- Don't fall for all the extras.
Many carriers will try to get you to add a lot of extras on your plan, such as insurance. Do you really need it if you are someone who is careful with your phone? Plus, most insurance policies require a $50 deductible for any claims.
- Choose a popular carrier.
Most carriers offer a discount for calling other subscribers on their service. So if many of your family and friends are on the same service, you might benefit from choosing the same one.
