Selling old mobile may help pay for overseas calls

Jet-setting mobile users may wish to sell their old phone and sign up to a more cost-effective plan prior to the holiday season.

According to the Daily Mail, getting hit by huge costs for using a handset abroad is one of the top ten cash traps of the summer.

But consumers could avoid it by investing in a new phone on a contract or pay-as-you-go tariff that makes using it overseas affordable.

For example, people who sign up to a deal with T-Mobile are able to text a number and then access 17 minutes of free calls when in foreign countries.

The newspaper also advises people to text rather than call where possible, as this is significantly cheaper in most parts of the world.

Mobile network Three recently cut its data roaming charges in Europe by half ahead of the summer holiday period, potentially enabling plenty more people to stay connected to their device while enjoying a break.
