How to compare mobile phone tariffs

Introduction
Have you got a good spanking from your wife for getting a very expensive handset worth a few hundred dollars for yourself? However its fine by you, as you plan to use it for several years but the important thing to ponder about is the monthly mobile phone bill that you have to pay for your mobile use. Heavy mobile bills can often throw your monthly budget in a tizzy. And also you may get a good spanking from your wife as well. Hence it become extremely necessary to compare mobile phone tariffs from the same company and compare the same tariff plans from different companies and select the best option.

Points to consider in comparing mobile phone tariffs
The main factor to consider when comparing mobile tariffs is the amount of usage per month. For example you might be using your mobile to make just emergency calls and nothing else. You might be using your mobile phone for making important business calls. There are also mobile phone tariffs that let you make calls at cheaper rates during off peak hours. Hence you can go for the off peak hour scheme in case you use your mobile phone more during that time. There are certain people who make all calls from their mobile phones and do not care really about the amount time and the amount of calls that they make from their mobile phones. The mobile phone companies favor these business type people and do their best to win their patronage. They offer good schemes for people who use the mobile more often.
You can also visit UK websites that have mobile tariff calculators that let you enter important information like the amount of calls you make and the average duration of each call and then give you feedback on which will be the best tariff plan for you. You can go to your dealer with the tariff plans of other companies and then haggle with them for the best plan for you. Most of the dealers will oblige if you are a regular customer and they know that you will continue their patronage.
You can also ask your neighbors and friends about the tariff plans they are using. In most cases your neighbors and your friends become your best advisors as they will be more than happy to share their knowledge of the mobile tariff with you. You can also pick up leaflets and pamphlets at showrooms of the dealers and then compare the mobile tariff. In many cases the dealer will be more than happy to advise you on the best tariff plan for you. Also once you get your tariff plan, pay close attention to your usage and check at the end of the month whether the plan you have chosen is the bets for you or is it time to change to a new plan. Most of the dealers in UK will get your plan changed within a few days of your request for change of plan.
