If you’re like most of us, you just want to take your phone and use it. It doesn’t matter if it’s
just for calls, texts or surfing; you just want to use it.
One of our big money saving tips for 2014 is to start to understand what you use your phone for. How many texts do you send a month? How long do you spend on social media? How many hours of calls do you spend on the phone?
Keep a diary for a typical week and note down how you use your phone. At the end of the week you’ll know everything you need to in order to decide which network is best for you.
