We’ve been asked this question several times over the last month: Are you allowed to send a mobile phone with a battery them via Royal Mail? So we thought we’d answer.
Whenever you apply for a mobile phone contract the lender will run a credit check and this will result in what’s known in the industry as a hard enquiry. A hard enquiry can negatively impact your credit score and multiple hard enquiries aren’t a good thing as it may indicate that you are desperate for credit, or that you aren’t able to qualify for credit.
Cancelling your mobile phone insurance is relatively straightforward and most policies will allow you to cancel anytime. To cancel you will need to speak directly with the insurer (either via email, over the phone or in writing) and ensure you have your policy number to hand.
Losing your phone can be a bit of a nightmare, but there’s more at stake than just your hand set and contact numbers…fortunately there are a few steps that you need to take.
Cashback deals can be a great way of saving on the cost of your mobile or mobile bills, and they’re a common incentive offered by companies as you have seen across our site.

It might surprise you to know that not all 0800, 0808 or 0500 calls are free if you’re calling from a mobile phone. Whilst you can call these numbers free from a land line phone, mobiles are a different story, and you could end up with a very surprising mobile bill at the end of the month. So how can you call these numbers for free?
Getting a phone bill that’s higher than you’ve agreed to pay in your contract can be a pain, but whether or not this is cause to cancel your contract is a bit of a murky issue, depending on why your bill has gone up and on when your contract was signed.

Signing a mobile contract is not something that should be undertaken lightly, mostly because it can be difficult and costly to cancel once you’re signed up for service. Whilst there are some occasions when you can cancel penalty free, for the most part if you want to cancel you’re going to end up paying some pretty pricey fees. Let’s take a look at exactly what your options are here.
