Effective Way to Cut down your Mobile Credit Budget
August 31, 2011 6:35pm CST
I am using Nokia C5. I have the capability to create folder on my phone. I named it Credit. I am only a prepaid Subscriber. So I manually load my phone on retails stores. In order to know the development of by phone bills. I kept the confirmation of the load to my credit folder from day 1 to end of the month. Once I got the summary of my phone bill of the month. I delete it. And ready for my next month. Here's the development I dont for past three (2) months: [b]June 2011 - 630 July 2011 - 975 August 2011 - 740[/b] I was able to save Php 235.00 of my next month. If you apply this on your routine you can slice down your budget too.

Congratulations on getting your cell bill down. I have unlimited text so I cut down on voice by texting more. Unfortunately most of my acquaintances do not have text on their phones or have to pay more for it. I never come close to using all of my allocated voice minutes, though, so it is OK. Just less convenient.

I'm hoping to cut my mobile credit budget for at least 75% of my previous postpaid plan which is around $200 or Php800.00. I'm minimizing my calls and text message, make sure to maximize the number of characters per text. If its not too urgent, I just use the online free text messaging available in the internet. Goodluck, hope we could achieved what we started.

i did that too last year.. but then i have to manualy write down on a paper about my load. i did write it for about a 5 months and then decided to cut down to a budget of only 300 pesos for load per month. i did manage to keep the budget and was able to save. and because of the amazing offer of my telco, i am able to have unlimited text to other network as a freebie for only 200 pesos a month.

I'm not into prepaid subscribing because it's troublesome. Due to my high usage, it's better to have postpaid instead because my monthyl bill often comes up to at least S$120.. lol :D IMagine if i'm using prepaid, without free outgoing, and limited surfing, i would be paying alot more for my bills.. lol :D With post paid, i have 12GB free for surfing, compared to 10MB.. haha

hi syoti. i do something similar for my prepaid globe line as well. i do it differently though, i put the amount of load credits i purchase in my calendar so i know when and how much i bought the credits. this way i can also keep track of how often i need to purchase load credits. i normally go by Php300 to Php500 per month but august was an exception because globe keep debiting me load credits even though i was enrolled in their all text promotions. i was debited five times this past month with amounts ranging from Php50 to Php115. so frustrating!!! add the fact that globe cs reps were very inept in assisting me in my concern and i wanted to go ninja on their a$$es!!! globe cs reps bring out the devil in me easily!!! *sigh* anyway, nevermore will i get debited load credits. i've decided to just keep my reloads to a limit of Php250. anyway, i have my globe postpaid line but i'm thinking of ditching that as well and switch to a different provider because of the very bad experience i got from globe cs reps.
