Phone tariffs "can be changed" to save money

13 January 2009 — 6:30 PM

People considering not paying their mobile phone bills have been reminded that changing tariffs is possible for most people.

Jill Blake, spokesperson for, said money issues can be solved by confronting them.

"Changing phone tariffs … can be done," she commented.

"It's about facing up squarely to financial tight-spots when they happen."

Ms Blake added "chatting on the phone" may not be essential but it is an "enjoyable part" of life and can continue if steps are taken, such as cutting back on usage or changing contracts if possible.

Some people may have signed up for deals because were appealing or considered necessary at the time, she said.

Her comments follow the publication of research by Direct Line, which states 16 per cent of householders said they were likely to stop paying their mobile phone bills if they were under financial pressure.

Some 22 per cent would default on paid-for television subscriptions, while eight per cent would postpone paying off credit cards.
