Let’s face it its easy to buy a mobile phone on contract simply visit your local mobile showroom select the handset you want, and the airtime deal then sign on the dotted line.
Before you sign that contract lets see if we can make you understand what you are about to do.
Most mobile network operators will have minimum 24-month contract as they need to make the money back for the free phone they justgave you. For example, you just got a free Samsung S9 mobile phone but your tied into contract for 24 months paying £32 a month giving a grand total cost of £768. However right now you can get a 12-month contract with Unlimited minutes and texts with 2GB data for £14 a month and you can buy an equivalent unlocked mobile phone from ziegal at £249 giving a grand total of £417 over 12 months.
Besides saving over £350 you don’t have to wait two years to get an upgrade and most mobile phone manufactures only guarantee the phone for 1 year, so it makes more sense to buy your mobile phone on a one-year contract instead of a 2-year contract. Stop restricting yourself the typical saving soon starts to add up as every two years your saving money and when you consider that everyone in your family could also do the same and buy sim free unlocked phone the savings could add up to the price of a decent holiday.
Your kids will love the idea of changing their phone every year and getting holiday every two years it makes logical sense stop wasting your money on mobile phone brands and being tied down.
At the end of the day it’s a phone which is used to surf the internet, watch videos, make and receive phone calls.
