There are several different Vodacom cell phone contract packages available and it is likely that you will find one to suit your needs within their large range of contracts.
Cell phones are essential for modern day living. Their uses have gone far beyond phone calls and SMS. We use them for communication in the broadest sense. They have become essential for phone calls, SMSs, MMSs, video chat, social media like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, email and much more.
Beyond communication, they are tools for everyday living and with a cell phone you can take and store photographs and video, browse the internet, calculate sums, store memos and documents, keep up to date with your diary and play games. In today’s fast paced and hectic world we would be lost without our cell phones, and having one connects you to the world and helps you keep up.
As with anything worth having, cell phones can cost a lot of money. There are bottom of the range phones with very limited tools and abilities available at low cost, but if you are looking for a cell phone with some or all of the latest tools you will pay into the thousands for it. You will have to buy airtime and data regularly and they too can become costly.
Why not go for a contract?
A contract can save you a lot of money and ensure that you have airtime and data without having to upload it. However, getting a contract requires several things:
- You must have an income of more than a specified amount to qualify for a contract.
- Some cell phone contract providers want to see a good credit history before they will give you a contract.
There are many different types of contracts. Generally, you will get a phone and, depending on which type of contract you are on, you might get a certain amount of free minutes for use during off peak times. Some contracts throw in other items like laptops, cameras, gift vouchers and more. You will be offered an upgrade every few years which will be helpful as cell phones do not last forever. Because we use them every day, they suffer wear and tear, water damage, they are usually dropped quite often and will start to malfunction after time.
Some contracts will allow you to make unlimited calls and then charge you at the end of the month. This can be dangerous as it is difficult to keep up with how much you owe until you are saddled with a hefty bill. Other contracts operate in much the same way buy allow you to set a limit. With a password you can override the limit, but it acts as a warning to let you know how far you have gone. Top up contracts give you all the benefits of a contract (the phone and the upgrade) but give you a certain amount of airtime per month and no more. You can, however, top up your airtime if it runs out in the same way as you would with pay as you go.
