Do you always shop for better deal on your phone services?

A friend of mine at work, he always searching for better deal in mobile phone services. He is so knowledgeable about the prices and new gadgets on mobile phones. So, whenever we have question or want to get a better deal, we might ask him for the scoop. Recently, he told us about the getpeek.com, offering $16/month for teens unlimited text and email. Now, a company called kajeet offering unlimited text and 1500 minutes calling a month. What a great deal right. If you believe him, go check those out.

I know some of my mobile network operators offers. Actually i also subscribed with some mobile network operators because there are no one operator have all in services which meet my needs. That's why i have to use some of them for certain purposes. For texting and calling, i will use the operator which offering many free sms per day and lowest calling rate. For data (mobile internet), i will use my mobile network operator which has a fastest and reliable mobile broadband services with HSDPA network. So that's why i also have several mobile phones. Good luck and have a nice day. Happy mylotting.

well, sounds like you pay a lot of money for all these services. For me, I won't never use a cell phone for all these stuff. At least, I still have internet connection. Always shop for better deal.

Usually I do actually 'shop' around for better deals on my phone contracts...ATT is the one for me, however most people don't agree with me.

I don't know about that. But the pricing war is on, new companies will fight for your business, so beware what you are having, and always shop for better deal in the market.

Yes same here......even I look for the best benefits on my mobile phone......we usually get these free text messages, STD calls at local rates.....free talk time......reduced call rates.....etc,etc there are lots of benefits like these....and I usually get alerts from my mobile phone company stating the current offer by the company........and then I try to analyze how profitable would it be for me.......I don't usually change my service provider as that would mean change in number......and also I prefer most of the times a prepaid card than a postpaid and you cant really keep a track of how much you spend and how much is your bill so far......whereas in prepaid you can do that....... Happy talking !!!!

My wife and I usually do, although it really doesn't make us want to switch companies, even if they have a better price. We've been with Verizon since before we even met cause she's had her account since 2002; they've been really good to us so there's never been a need to change from one to another. The prices are actually better for us in other companies, particularly T-Mobile, but our comfort and satisfaction with the service that we get keeps us with Verizon. I know people who are like that, though; it seems as though my old college roommate continually changes his cell phone provider due to the new phone; he wanted an iPhone, then now he switched back to Verizon for the Blackberry Tour. All in all, the prices are important, but we shop around only to see what's better only to stick anyways!

I have always been with Telstra here in Australia, I used to work for telstra so I just stayed on with them but since they have brought out all these new charges such as, charges for using a credit card to pay your bill, charges for over the counter transactions and now even charges for any payments made other than Bpay payments, so I am now looking for a company that is fairer to their customers.

I am with Verizon Wirelsess. They aren't the cheapest, but I don't think they are the most expensive either. My momthly bill is high compared to others, but I get a lot for what I am paying and that is what matters. My bill is $89.99 and that is before taxes. It has lots of featurs on it and I am able to access mylot from it as well, and that is one of the reasons I bought it, so when I am not near my computer, I can still post. I like Verizon as the coverage area is very good, much better than t-mobile, is what I had before this one. Since I don't have a landline, I use the cell phone exclusively. Have a good day, and happy mylotting.

Of course. I would always choose the better deal on phone service. We'll never know when your phone will be damage or broken. So it's much safer this way than buying phones with less service.
