Looking to switch mobile phone provider?

If you have seen out the initial terms of your original contract with your current network and are thinking about making a switch of mobile phone provider, then there are a number of things that you can do to make sure that you get the very best value for money rather than ending up making an expensive mistake.

These days most networks have a number of excellent tariffs available on both pay as you go and pay monthly bill contracts, however it can be a little tricky to figure out who offers what, as well as which ones are right for you, without a bit of prior knowledge of the current state of the mobile phone scene.

Fortunately, that's precisely where we come in, and we've got some great advice to offer that could save you a lot of money. Firstly, as we mentioned earlier it's important that the initial term of your original contract have expired, because trying to leave a contract early can often result in quite hefty financial penalties.

There are ways around this, such as refusing to accept new terms and conditions should your service provider change theirs, but you could very well be unlucky and have no changes in terms or conditions at all during the term of your contract. In this case it is often cheaper simply to wait until your initial period has expired before making the switch.

This certainly isn't ideal, but in many cases it's the best you'll be able to do. You could also go down the route of complaining and demanding release from your contract should the service not be what you signed up for. This is something that can be very difficult to prove though, and may require you to consult with a solicitor, or threaten to take the company to the small claims court, so you may decide that it's simply not worth it for the few months it would save you.
