How to compare…
When deciding on a Cellphone Contract, there are a number of factors to consider. Data bundles, voice bundles, SMS bundles, airtime, and of course the price of the cellphone/device you’re interested in, will all influence the amount that you will pay at the end of every month.
The best way to decide on what bundle or package will suit your needs is to look at how you currently use your cellphone.
If you regularly update your Facebook status, send WhatsApp messages and add photos of your lunch to Instagram, you will probably need a data bundle. Data is used when you access the Internet via your cellphone. Data bundles give you a certain amount of data for a set price every month, for example, 250 MB for R60. Data bundles are normally more cost-effective and convenient than using data at out-of-bundle rates.
If you’re a chatterbox, voice bundles will offer you a certain number of minutes for a set price every month. This “airtime” will allow you to call your family and friends across the country. As with data bundles, voice bundle rates are generally cheaper than out-of-bundle voice rates.
SMS bundles offer you a certain number of SMSs for a set price every month. Like data bundles and voice bundles, it is often much cheaper to buy an SMS bundle than to send the same number of SMSs at out-of-bundle rates.
Airtime can be used to make voice calls, send SMSs or access the Internet. Many Cellphone Contracts include airtime as part of the monthly package. Depending on what you use your cellphone for it might be cheaper to buy data, voice or SMS bundles.
