The best tariff for your pay as you go is dependent on many factors. Choosing the best one can be a bit of a task. Texter talker or surfer or are you a mixture of all three.
1. Depending on the mobile telecommunications company that you are signed up with, which plan will be more appropriate for the way that you make calls?
2. Do you often call out of the country?
3. How long do your local and long distance calls last on average?
4. How may text messages per day do you send on average?
5. Do you use video calling to other networks?
6. Do you send picture messages?
7. How often do you receive Voicemail messages?
8. Do you make calls to satellite phones?
9. Do you use WAP chat?
10. Do you access the Internet using your mobile phone?
All these questions need to be answered before you choose a pay as you go provider
