How much do you pay for your mobile phone contract? After using Billmonitor, you’ll realise the answer is probably “too much”.
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is Billmonitor – Check You Have The Best Mobile Contract.
What is it?
Billmonitor is a service that continuously reviews your mobile phone contract to make sure you’re not overpaying for minutes, data or other features.
How much does it cost?
Billmonitor is free to use.
Billmonitor helps you Check You Have The Best Mobile Contract
Regardless of your preference in the mobile device — Android, iOS, or even BlackBerry (for more, read “How Smartphone Users See Each Other“) every one of us has a mobile phone contract.
We often overestimate how many minutes we need, how many text messages we send, or how much data we really need.
As a result, many of us are paying too much for our mobile phone contracts.
Billmonitor is a service that checks your usage over the past few months and tells you if you’re on the right contract.
You don’t need to know how much you’re paying, or the terms of your contract.
You give the service permission to access your mobile phone network’s online billing website, and then it goes away and does its calculations.
Within a short period of time (typically a couple of hours) the service will let you know how many minutes, text messages and data allowance you’re actually using, on average.
The service will then tell you whether you’re on the right contract, or whether you could move to a cheaper contract that would serve you better.
I’ve found Billmonitor to be super accurate at making sure I’m on the best mobile phone deal. Sometimes, the service has advised me to move to a cheaper tariff with the same provider — which has been even easier than moving mobile phone providers.
