    How many minutes will I get with this cell phone plan?

    Verizon, AT & T and T-Mobile offer a set amount of minutes per month. This can range from 700 to 1,400 minutes or more. Some major carriers offer unlimited data plans. The minutes accumulated are charged as part of the monthly fee. The “pay as you go” cell phone plans offer a way for those who don’t utilize their phones that often to pay for only the minutes they use. Signing up for these types of cell phone plans is easy with no credit check involved.

    What’s the difference between contract and pre-paid cell phone plans?

    The major companies offer contract phones with 2-year agreements for their stability. In return they offer free or low cost phones that are connected to their system. One of the perks of a contract is that you get free upgrades. One of the disadvantages is the early termination fee. Pre-paid cell phone plans offer the freedom of cancellation at any time without penalty. They are also relatively cheaper after the cost of the phone.

    What is the coverage area and what roaming charges are there?

    It is important before you sign up for a cell phone plan that you know if the carrier covers your area of the country. You could be hit with roaming charges if your carrier doesn’t cover your area. Roaming charges, especially when you utilize the full spectrum of features, could cost you.

    How much speed does the cell phone plan provide and what are the performance options?

    Data speed is critical when you’re using your device to process video and data. A performance evaluation designed to ferret out the issues cell phones have with dropped calls is often a good indicator of the reliability of the cell phone plan. There are many options available that match speed with performance. The important thing to remember is that you can choose the options you need for you cell phone. Pre-paid cell phone plans may not offer the speed you need if you’re running a sophisticated smartphone, but they have performed just as well as the major carriers’ phones.

    How good is the customer service in signing up for the plan and maintaining it?

    Customer service is probably going to be the biggest asset or liability with your cell phone plan. You need to be able to trust the carrier to connect your cell phone to their network seamlessly. You’ll want to know how the carrier reaches out to you to resolve phone issues. You’ll also need to understand your cell phone plan’s features and limitations. Carriers that help you manage your data, resolve voice quality issues and provide excellent technical services have the best cell phone plans available.
