How to not get caught in mobile operators’ nets

Posted In Mobile, Technology Reviews - By Techtiplib on Sunday, April 28th, 2013 With No Comments »

Nowadays, everyone is using a cell phone or a Smartphone and using the services of a mobile operator is something that is inevitable as you can’t use these phones without a contract with a mobile operator. However, in many cases you might get caught in the nets that mobile operators carefully set up for their customers. That might involve many factors as the most common one is to include a service that you might not need in the package and thus increase the price of the whole package. Mobile operators often offer you deals that might look like the best thing that has happened in your life while in fact they are the opposite. Of course, avoiding these nets might be quite a tricky thing to do, but with a little bit of knowledge and a general idea of what might befall you, you should be able to dodge them pretty well. 

So, how to avoid the tricks that mobile operators use to make us pay more? First of all, you need to have an idea of what exactly you want as a service. Make a thorough research before you go and choose a phone package. Mobile operators will surely have websites with all their plans included and this is a great place to find exactly what you need. Check all the offers that they have and find the best one for you. After you do that it is really important to stick with your choice as mobile operators will always try to offer you something which includes more features and therefore requires more money. Most of these offers will exceed your needs and all you will achieve by getting such a package is paying more for something that you don’t need. Mobile operators also might use the trick to tell you that you are not eligible for this exact package. Of course, you will be able to use the plan that costs twice the price of your preferred one and that way you might be forced into getting the more expensive option. However, if you know about the package beforehand, you will be able to dodge the net and save your money. If you are intended on getting a specific plan that is being offered only by a single mobile operator then you might try in a different store as the services that are being offered might differ. Yes, it is ridiculous, but it is something that has happened to many and might happen to you.

Another trick that you might encounter is the old “fine print” one. It is a net that many use in order to get some extra money out of their customers. If it is in the contract and you have signed it you will have to pay for it as you are required to read the contract before signing. By adding really small prints somewhere that you won’t see, mobile operators might try to include some text which will most likely state that you have agreed to purchase additional services for extra money.
