We look for the best UK mobile phone provider

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past few years, you'll be more than aware that the entire landscape has shifted considerably when it comes to mobile phone services. While things used to be quite straight forward, revolving mainly around the price of calls and texts, these days things are very different, with features like data plans, free airtime minutes and complimentary free texts making all the difference for shoppers.

When it comes to deciding which is the best UK mobile phone provider for you, it very much depends on what you need your services for, as well as the kind of mobile phone you have. If, for example, you're an avid smartphone user who simply can't live without gadgets, gizmos and online functionality, then a data plan is probably going to be the most important thing for you.

While those of you who simply want to use your phone to talk and text will be far more interested in taking advantage of the falling voice and text prices on offer right now. Each of the seven major phone providers offers a number of different pay monthly tarrifs, each costing a different monthly fee which makes it particularly tricky to figure out which one is right for you.

For those of you who will spend most of your time talking and texting, we recommend you take a look at Vodafone's 12 unlimited talk and text plan for £26 per month. For this you'll get unlimited minutes to any landline in the UK, plus 1200 minutes to any mobile network at any time, unlimited texts and 250MB of data.

If you're more concerned with data, then the best deals are to be had with T-Mobile who offer 100 voice minutes, 100 texts and unlimited data for just £10.21, and Orange who offer 500 voice minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited data for £20 per month.
