Contract phones are really useful if you don’t ever want to run out of air time and with the World Cup around the corner there are some cheap deals on offer. The major service providers in South Africa are MTN, Vodacom and Cell C with a few subscribers belonging to Virgin Mobile. Each of these has different packages available, which means that depending on your budget you can probably get similar deals from any of the providers. In addition, when the service providers have specials on, they tend to come with particular phones such a Nokia or Samsung and recently the Blackberry has become increasingly popular. You can be stylish whilst having an affordable cell phone contract to keep you connected.
If you are looking for MTN, Vodacom or Cell C contract phones to keep you in contact, make sure that you keep your eyes peeled for specials. Ordinarily if you purchase a cell phone from one of the leading brands like Nokia, Samsung or Blackberry it will be extremely expensive. You will not only have to buy the phone, but you will also be responsible for purchasing air time frequently and for insurance. This makes the whole process extremely expensive. However, when you look out for packages, specials and cheap deals you are often able to get a phone, insurance and monthly airtime in one go for a lower price than you would otherwise. It is incredibly worth while to strike whilst the iron is hot.
If you have been a devoted pay-as-you-go subscriber and are finally ready to make the move, you are making the right decision. Contracts often come with free minutes over the weekends, cheaper calling rates and a whole host of specials. If you are new to the country, look out for the signs that say Cell C, Vodacom or MTN and you will be well rewarded by the specials on contract phones.
