Mobile Coverage and Other Things to Check Before Buying a Phone

By Lucas Charlotte Subscribe to RSS | January 18th 2012 | Views:

There is such a wide range of mobile phones available to buy nowadays that it is easy to get lost in model names and the multitude of functions that the latest generation of smartphones boast. What you really to check is whether the network you are looking to join covers your local area and that a price plan exists that suits your budget and your communication needs.

To make sure that you will be able to use your new phone in all the places you frequent, it is wise to perform a mobile coverage check on Mobile Choices or a similar retail price comparison service. Most major mobile network providers have coverage maps available to browse where you can enter your home postcode or the name or a town to see how strong the mobile signal is in that area. Some show the signal for inside buildings and outside, but not all, so it is important you check whether the provider you are thinking of going with differentiates on their map. It is also possible to check the strength of mobile broadband signal from each provider on these maps, if you are thinking of getting a smartphone with internet capabilities.

Once you have confirmed that you will be able to receive signal in the places you go, you should look at the phone packages that are available. If you only tend to use your phone for text messaging and making phone calls and are not concerned about having camera functions or access to mobile internet capabilities than you can simply focus on the tariffs that are available that offer free text messaging and a fixed number of free minutes each month. The more you are willing to pay, the more your allocation will be.

If you want to take advantage of the technological advances a smartphone boasts, like a digital camera with an impressive megapixel count or a large internal memory for mp3 storage, it is worth comparing the handsets that take your fancy and reading reviews by industry experts and people that already own them. If the majority of reviews you find about a particular model complain about the battery life or how slow it is to process instructions, you can strike that one from your list.

With a number of comparison websites available to use for free, there is no longer any need to commit to a mobile phone contract or hand over a substantial amount of cash for a new phone without knowledge of what to expect from both your mobile provider and your new piece of hardware. The difficulty now is deciding which phone and deal is right for you.
