Best Cell Phone Plan

With so many mobile plans to choose from, how do you decide which is the best for you? How can you find the best Australian mobile phone plan that meets your budget and your needs? Check out these awesome cell phone secrets before you choose your next plan.

What Do You Need?

Before you jump into a multi-year phone plan, you want to make sure that you find the plan that you need. To find the best cell phones plans of 2019 for your family, business, and personal use, evaluate how much you really plan to use the cell phone. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many times will you actually call someone in the course of a month? Daily? Weekly?
  • Do you still use a landline or use another mobile phone more often?
  • Will this be a personal phone or a business phone?
  • Are you sharing your phone with a spouse or other family member?
  • Are you calling international?
  • Do you use your phone for data-heavy content like music and video?
  • How many phones will you need on your plan?
  • Do you have a preference for what type of phone or what brand you use?
  • Do you need to video conference often?
  • Will you use your phone for organization or link it to your smart house?

Why do you need to ask all these questions? Simple. You want to choose a cell phone plan that best meets your needs. If you are a businessperson that plans on using the phone for video conferencing internationally you will have different needs than a retiree who might use the phone for local calls to the grandchildren or the college student who uses the phone socially or for rideshare services.

You don’t need to buy a plan that offers significantly more than what you need if it is at a higher price. However, like most technology, you might find that you start using your phone more often after you have access to more data and better coverage.

Should You Go Post Paid?

These plans require a yearly or multi-year contract – usually around twenty-four months. They have cheaper call rates generally but might rack up extra costs. You can avoid this by asking for bill capping – where you preset how much you are willing to pay each month. Watch out for hidden fees and lock-in contracts. You don’t want to end up with a cell phone plan that leaves you broke every month.

Pre-Paid Plans

If you watch your budget or don’t anticipate using your phone excessively, a pre-paid plan is probably best for you. After years of dealing with overpriced post-paid plans, many consumers like the control and freedom that a pre-paid plan affords. You simply recharge your phone at the end of the pay period (whether that is thirty days, ninety days, or more). You often have to add international roaming and other features separately. Recharging your phone often takes a couple of clicks when you receive your monthly SMS reminder. All-in-all the pre-paid plans offer more convenience in terms of payment.

Ask yourself these ten important questions before you choose your next cell phone plan. Find the right plan for you and your family.
