Choosing a phone plan that's right for you

If you're wondering about the best mobile plan for you, then you first have to decide what your needs are - do you talk more? Or do you text? How much data do you churn through in a month?

Ask yourself what kind of deal best suits your needs, as phone companies offer deals for those who enjoy social media and video streaming, as well as those who primarily use their phones to talk or text.

If you're the type of person who dispenses with the internet and simply communicates through phone calls and text messaging then look for a phone plan that allows it. To save on costs, look for a plan where data is not a part of the package. This means that you're not paying for something that you don't use anyway.

For those of you who enjoy Facebook, YouTube and Google, you're going to want a data intensive plan to ensure that you don't run over your cap. This is because nothing will send your bill to the moon faster than using more internet than you have been allocated.

Take the time to shop around and find the best deal that suits your needs so that you're not paying for features that you don't use.
