So, you’re thinking about switching to another cell phone provider. If the price of your monthly cell phone bill makes you want to bang your head against the wall, you aren’t alone. In fact, we’ve found that over half (51%) of all U.S. adults think they are paying way too much for their cell phone bills!
How can I tell if it’s the right time to switch phone carriers?
There are many signs that it’s time to move on to greener pastures. First, if you feel like your monthly payment is too high, it’s worth searching for alternatives. There’s no reason to pay hundreds of dollars per month for comparable services that cost less.
Second, if you’re locked into an expensive monthly contract, it may be time to consider a month to month contract that better meets your needs. We’re here to tell you that it’s possible to switch to a month to month service that you can scale to your needs and budget.
Third, if your data usage fluctuates month to month, you should consider switching to another carrier. You deserve a plan that you can tailor to your needs – and you shouldn’t have to pay extra for features you don’t want.
How do I switch phone carriers?
Before making the jump to a new provider, there are a few things to consider:
Step 1: Calculate the cost of leaving your current provider.
If you’re currently in a 2 year contract, there may be costs associated with cancelling your plan. Some providers may charge an early termination fee. Call your carrier to find out what these fees might be ahead of time. In some cases, the long term savings associated with switching to a lower cost provider can offset the early termination fees you might pay.
It’s also important to consider where you are in your billing cycle when you decide to switch carriers. Think about the day that your monthly bill is due. If your bill is due on the first of the month, you shouldn’t cancel your plan on the second. Try to cancel your service a few days before your bill is due. This will prevent you from paying for a full month of service.
Step 2: Bring your own phone.
Step 3: Keep your phone number.
