If you own a smartphone and use it to connect to the internet, you will find that a part of your monthly bill includes paying for a data plan. Mobile phone network providers are offering users many options for data packages with data measured in megabytes (MB) and gigabytes (GB). However, choosing a good data plan can save you a lot of money every month.
How much data do you really need? Are you wasting money paying for unused data? How to choose a suitable data plan?
More than what I have available at the moment. I have 4GB of data, and I have used about 90% of it with six more days till the end of the current billing cycle. Being a HG editor, yep I am using it more.
I use about 1G a month and have only maxed it once when I decided to download a couple of albums without thinking about it until my bill came in. Oops! Now I download music via my pc so it's all good. For standard checking of emails, surfing the net and social media 1G is fine.
4GB is good enough. I do most of my smartphoning from home when I am on Wi-fi anyways. When I go out, I use the phone mostly for camera and making calls. I do rarely need to go online, for which 4GB is good enough. I am on pre-pay plan, and I never go over my limit.
I find that I need more mobile data when I am back at university as I am in transit for many more hours than I am when on holidays. This ends up being around 4GB a month, even when there is wifi at university it is a hassle to log into and so I just rely upon my own. Thankfully my prepaid allows me to change my data amount and I can top up if necessary.
If you need an app to help you compile and store all your random stuff on your iphone, my husband had just written a brilliant app called Total Notes. It's available in the apple app store now. But I have some free trials to give away from a resent promotion if anyone is interested
