I have a contract phone but am spending £25-35 every month and now that I'm a SAHM this is just silly.
Orange has offered to put me on another tariff which will reduce (I think they said this last time as well) the cost to £20.
Would it be worth me getting PAYG instead?
I'm a bit put off by the hassle. People I know on PAYG never seem to have any credit or they are always having to top up. Is it still worth it?
it really depends on how much you use your phone, there are so many good deals about at the moment with some really good phones. If you are gonna stick woth contracts then have a look at dialaphone, you get some really good freebies with the phones.
I have just gone from PAYG to contract cos I was the same never had any credit on my phone, ended up using the house phone when i could have sent a text message, so for me contract is better.
I have payg, i find it ok. Because if you haven't got the money one month you don't need to be spending something you haven't got. I suppose it depends on how much you use your phone. you can top up with debit care or credit card so you don't always have to go to shops.
I have PAYG orange. When i top up with £15 i get 3000 free texts between 7pm and 7am weekdays, and from 7pm fri to 7am mon. So all is good. Except at the moment i have no credit cos got no money. i e-mail a lot when i'm home. or use house phone quickly. I hate the idea of spending that much on contract when you haven't even used the phone yet. I know it's good cos you never need to worry about credit,But it's money to me that could have gone on something else.
