Types of Mobile Contracts
New phone with contract
This type of contract is the most popular with personal users where you can upgrade to the latest device every 2 years. You pay for the handset and specified number of minutes, texts and data over a 24-month contract. At the end of the 2 years you own and keep the mobile phone.
TIP Often businesses continue to pay the same monthly charge, even after the initial contract period has expired, despite the fact that they will have paid for the handset element. If you’re happy to keep the same handset(s) then it is worth considering moving to a SIM-only deal.
Pay monthly SIM-only
A SIM-only deal is a contract to supply calls, text and data only. You will need to use a mobile phone, smartphone or tablet that you already own or about to purchase. Pay Monthly SIM’s benefit from the same calling, text, and data bundles as regular mobile phone contracts. You are however committed to the contract for a minimum 12 months.
Pay as you Use (PAYU)
If you need some spare handsets that go for long periods without being used, PAYU is the perfect solution. Call and text messages are charged only if you use it. You can add basic handsets for a very low monthly fee over a very short term, so no need to have expensive iPhones sitting unused in draws.
Business Sharer Plans
A very effective and flexible way to manage your mobile accounts, and keep your workforce connected. Business sharer plans offer full control over the total number of minutes, texts and data which are then shared across multiple devices. Phones and tables can be added to the account at any time and you can increase or decrease your usage allowances.
Most pay monthly contracts include free minutes, reset at the start of each month. These include calls to landlines, other mobile network and free phone numbers. International and premium rate calls are charged on top of your contract cost.
Unlimited free texts come as standard nowadays, but photo messages and premium rate (competitions or charity donations) will cost extra. If you need to send photos via your mobile connection, we recommend using services like whatsapp.
Data allowance feels like a minefield to most business users. While the cost of data continues to decrease, the increase in apps that use your data is ever increasing. This makes it much harder to work out what will be enough, and what will be far too much.
How much mobile data do you need?
For staff that spend the majority of their time at the office or working from home. 5GB of mobile data will be sufficient for times when they are needed elsewhere. Mostly these users will be connected to WiFi, therefore 5GB will be more than enough for emails, VoIP calls, instant messaging and other internet services.
For staff that are rarely in the office, 10GB of mobile data will be required. Whilst VoIP calling and emails use very little data, other business activity like file sharing, photos, PDF’s and presentations may consume near to 10GB every month. Public WiFi is available but not advised for business use.
If you spend most of your time away from the office and you’re a dependent on your data connection. 20GB of mobile data will allow you to efficiently run your business, on the move, especially if you need to tether your laptop to your private WiFi connection.
How about roaming?
The EU ‘roam like at home’ rule means you can use your mobile phone while travelling in any other EU country without paying extra roaming charges. This is intended for occasional travellers, where you spend more time at home than abroad. This Is subject to fair use policy to avoid abuse. Your limits still apply as if you were home, so checking you have enough data and minutes before you travel is advised.
For trips further afield, you can add an international bolt on. This allows you to use your calls, texts and data plan anywhere in the world for a flat daily fee, giving you peace of mind and predictable spend whilst you are away.
Mobile Phone Insurance
Accidents, especially with mobile phones, happen all the time. We offer several mobile insurance products to protect your devices should the worse happen. If you break your company mobile phone and it cannot be repaired, we will replace it with a new one the next working day.
If possible, we will get you back up and running sooner as we carry a number of spare handsets at Bespoke Connected.
