If you are trying to save money (let's face it, we all are) it's important to have a look for the best mobile plan to ensure that you are getting the a good deal.

There are a number of things to consider and a little homework can act as prevention from high bills.

Look at your phone rates and think about whether there might be a cheaper one out there. Many readers would probably not have a clue how much exactly; it costs to make a phone call. And there are variations, like time of day, the carrier of the receiver and other such variables, which can all impact on the bottom line.

When overseas, turn off the roaming feature on your phone because that will be a sure-fire way to ensure a phone bill turns from annoying to painful.

If you want to make a call while you are overseas or an international call while at home, consider using Skype and the internet. Most smart phones carry the application and the cost will guarantee that the monthly invoice isn't excessive.

Talk to a comparison and switching service to investigate whether there is a better deal out there for you.
