Contract Phones or Pay As You Go Phone – Which One is Better For You?
The mobile phone business is always offering us something new. Because it is so fast-paced, we can't easily predict what will come in the next 6 months, let alone a year or more. One thing that is certain about it, is that mobile phones have enabled us to connect with the world around us in more than one way.
Currently, there are a number of mobile phone contracts offered on the United Kingdom market. Mostly, however, we can divide them into two large groups: pay as you go (or PAYG) contracts and pay monthly contacts. The question, of course, if you are looking for a new mobile phone, is which one is actually better? This is what this short article will try to assist you with, so keep reading if you're interesting in finding out.
The biggest difference between the two is that a pay-as-you-go phone is very much alike a prepaid one. This means that a customer has to purchase the handset, as well as the connection, and then pay for the services in advance. After this, you can use them for the rest of that month.
Pay As You Go phone deals offer you free reign to choose any mobile phone device you want and they also often include extra free things, like free text messages, free Internet data or free talk-time.
Monthly pay mobile phone contracts, on the other side, require that you make an agreement with the mobile phone network if you want to use their services. The services offered this way are yours to be used for a certain period of time, according to the contract. Also, this requires that you pay an initial amount in order to activate the services offered. After this, you will also, as the name suggests, have to pay a certain monthly amount.
One advantage of getting a mobile phone contract on a monthly-pay deal over the pay-as-you-go one is that providers often offer some nice rewards and gifts. This can be anything from a free text messages, Internet data, talk-time, to a free handset, a laptop or a TV.
