VOIP It Up

Instead of making a phone call, connect to the internet and make a Voice Over the Internet call. This method of mobile chatting bears little weight on your pocket. Download a trusted VOIP app and get calling. Click here for our comprehensive list of decent VOIP apps.

Go Pre-Paid

The contract free mobile phone thing is not that big because you need to buy the desired phone cash… but in the end it saves you a lot of money and you have control of your package completely. Instead of a contract forcing you to survive on 100mb of data a month without the option of topping up, cut that risk out completely.

Data Wrangling

These days we use our cellphones to keep us connected to the world wide web, and if we don’t keep an eye on the data we use, we can end up paying bills that’ll leave many of us broke. Monitor and control your data usage by checking out this nifty article we wrote about saving mobile data by clicking here.

Choose the Right Contract

If you are on a contract in which you barely use any of your data package or SMS amounts, then speak to a consultant at your respective service provider and see which contract would best suit your needs. This seems like a no-brainer but you’d be surprised how many people just rush into a contract because they are after the phone and not the complete package.

Compare Contracts

Service providers are in direct competition with each other and a lot of contracts out there are tailored along similar lines. Looking for a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge but not too sure what you can afford? Let online comparative sites do the work for you. At the click of a button you’ll have the latest contracts out there at your finger tips. Click here and have phonefinder.co.za do all the work for you.
