What options are there for a mobile phone contract?

If you want to use such features, you need at least a good Wi-Fi connection to stream podcasts at home or download them preloaded in the app. Anyone who wants to stream and listen to podcasts on the go, without downloading them in advance, needs a corresponding mobile phone contract with a data flatrate.

The most important options include data volume, free minutes and free SMS. The data volume is required for uploading and downloading data or for surfing the Internet. With free minutes and free SMS the number is limited, with a so-called “Allnet Flat”, calls can be made free of charge to all German networks.

Criteria for choosing the right mobile phone contract

LTE is currently the fastest mobile Internet. Another criterion may be, for example, when roaming abroad, the roaming fee, which sets the rates for internet rates abroad.

In addition, an exciting alternative can be pure data plans, such as those at Mobilcom Debitel finds: With these simcards you cannot make phone calls, you can only use the internet.

6 tips for choosing the right mobile phone tariff

  1. One problem is contracting. With the conclusion of the mobile phone contract you are usually bound to 2 years to him. A few months before the end of the contract you can complete a new one with many mobile operators and then get the new device. The new contract is paid only after the old one.
  2. Very quickly you have completed an unwanted subscription. To prevent this from happening, you should have a third-party block set up by the provider at the beginning of the contract.
  3. The contract will automatically renew after expiration. A note reminds you of the timely notice before the notice period has expired.
  4. There are numerous providers of mobile phone contracts. One of the most well-known mobile service providers is 1 and 1, which among other things offers mobile phone contracts. On the website of the provider can be found current offers and mobile phone contracts.
  5. If you do not want to pay a high monthly fee, you should pay a higher one-off device price. If you prefer to pay a lower device price at the beginning, you must increase the monthly fee.
  6. In most cases it is worth canceling the contract and concluding a new one. The new mobile phone contract often offers better conditions.
