At the moment it’s the ideal time to upgrade a subscription plan at most of the network carriers. The reason for this is because of the current economic climate not many people are choosing to go ahead and sign for any type of contract for a long period. Most of the business cellular carrier companies are doing at the moment is for a no contract plans and as they make most of the money over the period of a contract they should be only too willing to offer you the best deal possible.
One of the first things you need to do is to sit down and look over your current pill you receive every month. The reason for this is to make sure you have a really good understanding of what you are using your cellular phone for. Believe it or not a lot of people could I see save money by switching plans if they really understood how they are using their phone and when they are using it.
Let me explain a little, if you are using your phone during regular business hours you will most likely be on a plan that charges you for this. But, the funny thing is a lot of people will make more phone calls in the evening time and during the daytime because they are too busy. It’s essential that you go over your phone bill and see exactly when most of your calls are being made if they happen to be in the evening time you can actually get calls for a much cheaper price than business hours.
Another area that you need to understand is do you send lots of text messages, do you use your phone for e-mail, and do you use your phone to surf the Internet. These are important questions because they will help you to have a clearer picture of exactly where your costs are. Once you have done this and ascertained exactly where your expenditure is then it’s time to go over exactly what the rest of your family are using their phones for. You’ll find that many teenagers would rather send text messages then call people. And it’s also important to note the people they do call and possibly most of these calls after family members and this is the case you will be looking for a new plan that includes free calls to all family members.
Shopping around is absolutely key to making sure that you get a good comparison of what the various network carriers are offering. It’s essential that you understand what types of calls and data needs your family are using at present if you have done your homework you will know this by now. A good tip is to phone a network carrier see what pricing they can offer and then tell them you will get back to them. Then phone a second carrier to see what pricing they are offering this is your time to try and negotiate pricing with them.
They will offer you more free airtime, they will offer you more free text messages, they will offer you extra data needs if required. What you are trying to do is negotiate the monthly charges downward this is where your savings will be made. There is absolutely no point having a 1000 free airtime if you only use half of this. You need to drive the negotiations on the price of the monthly fee so that this is reduced but also try to negotiate the extras with it.
Just keep bouncing back between various carriers until you are satisfied with a price you will be amazed at how much money you can actually save. Simply negotiating and doing some price comparison will not take long but will also make sure that your hard earned money is kept in your pocket.
