What to look for in a cell phone deal
Posted in: Cell Phones
There are many things you should look for when digging for the latest and greatest cell phone deals. Here are some quick tips.
First and foremost, you should try to find a cellular service that does not lock you into a long-term contract. If at all possible, choose a month-to-month plan. With this type of plan, you can stop using the cellular service at any time.
If you are under contract with a carrier, you may have to pay a termination fee and penalty to end the contract. Keep in mind that many free cell phone deals necessitate agreeing to a one- or two-year contract.
Next you should look for a cellular deal with free options and services. Almost every cell phone carrier includes free voicemail in their cell phone plans, however some cell phone companies include other free options as well:
- Free phones
- Free nights and weekends
- Free incoming calls
- Free long-distance
- Free caller ID
- Free ringtones
- Free text messages
If you are in need of more than one phone line, you can often get discounts for multiple lines or shared minute plans. These type of plans are particularly helpful if you are buying cell phones for your entire family. Find out if any multi-line discounts are available before signing up with a carrier.
Several wireless carriers offer “calling circles.” As part of your monthly service plan, you can designate certain phone numbers as part of your personal calling circle. Any calls to and from these numbers will be of no charge. This type of feature can be very beneficial for people who call a handful of people the majority of the time.
