Mobile Phone Costs
Managing on a limited budget whilst at University can be tricky and answering one simple question when your mobile phone contract comes up can save you a lot of money – do I really need to upgrade? It is suggested that any contract that charges more than £15 per month is too expensive, especially when you consider that high cost contracts that come with the latest phones will often inflate the monthly charge to pay off the value of the handset - and do so with a healthy surcharge. It has been calculated that it can cost up to 20% more to ‘buy’ a handset as part of a 24 month contract than to purchase it outright.
