When it comes to making a decision on whether to go on a monthly contract with your mobile service provider or whether to go with a prepaid plan it is often very difficult to know which choice to make. While there are obviously advantages to going for a contract and not going, and while whether to use either of the two will be determined by several factors, I have come to realize over the years that it is often a smart decision to go for a prepaid plan instead of signing a contract; and in this article I will be giving you a few reasons why I think you should avoid going on long term contracts with your mobile service provider.
How to get a best mobile phone contract
You Get Simple and Affordable Offers
The number one reason you shouldn’t go on a contract with your ISP is that you will be able to get simple and affordable offers. When it comes to determining which mobile service is good for you or not the best decision is often powered by choice. In other words, you will be able to choose rightly and save money when you have a lot of options to choose from; unfortunately, that isn’t the case if you go for a contract as your ISP already probably has a plan that can hardly be changed. By going for a simple “Pay as You Go Plan” you will easily be able to tailor your usage to your needs, and as a result you will only pay whenever you use their services; leading to a cheaper and better package for you on the long run.

You Determine How Long to Stay with any Service Provider
Another reason why you should avoid going on a contract with any mobile service provider is that you will be able to determine how long you stay with them. With most service providers you won’t be able to get a contract of anything less than 12 months except you use their SIM Only option.
What I mean in this section is that you shouldn’t be forced to stay with an ISP unless you know their stuff, and that’s exactly what a long term contract forces you to do. By not going on a contract you will be able to determine when to use and when to stop using your ISP; and you won’t be charged any fine should you decide not to use their services again.
You Can Use as Many ISPs as You Want
Signing a contract with an ISP also makes it very difficult for you to use as many ISPs as you want. Signing a contract with most ISPs costs hundreds of dollars, or a little less, every month and it can be very difficult to start paying that same amount to more than one ISP. By not signing a contract you will only be paying a fraction of what you would have paid otherwise, and you will also be able to determine when to use the service and when to pay. This ultimately leaves you with the choice of having as many ISPs as you want without going broke.
