This is a bit of a tough one, but there are options… if you get a mobile on a two year contract you’d sort of expect that your phone would be protected in some way, right? However, that’s not always true. We’re going to be honest and say that in many cases you’re going to end up buying a new phone out of your own pocket, but there are some things that you might want to try first.
Today’s question comes from BradleyCFC who wants to know when a phone contract actually starts. He asks:
Firstly, don’t panic. In today’s financial climate, you’re definitely not alone. Mobile phone bills can be a huge drain on a monthly income, and if you signed up for a contract and suddenly find yourself out of work, for example, then mobile bills aren’t exactly your priority. On the other hand, you can’t ignore the problem, so you’ve already taken a great first step by recognising the problem and asking for advice.
As smartphone technology continues to evolve, it also paves the way for an increasing amount of mobile phone scams. These scams can cost their victims anywhere in the range of just a few pounds to their whole life savings. As using these devices becomes a more integral part of our daily lives, it’s important to be aware of the different types of mobile scams and how to avoid them. Here’s a look at some of the most common mobile phone scams.
