Changin tariffs could save money

It could be possible for consumers to save over £1,000 if they do their research and change their mobile phone contract to suit their talking and messaging habits.

The Times explained that certain deals can be more costly if users go over their allowance of minutes and texts.

For example, the newspaper cites a customer who pays £35 a month to O2 and included in this are 600 free calls and 500 complimentary texts.

However, the bill is often £100 on top of the contract base rate because extra calls are made over the four or five week period.

By transferring to a slightly more expensive deal - £44 with the same network provider – the customer would double her allowance to 1,200 minutes of talk time and 1,000 free texts.

In total, this could bring the annual bill down to £528, saving the woman £1,092 over 12 months.

There are currently a number of mobile phone reviews on the 02 website, such as the Nokia 5800, which was awarded 4.5 stars out of a possible five. The score was based on an average of 21 customer reviews of the product.
