Remember back in the day, when you were more interested in the amount of calls and text messages you had rather than the amount of data included in your mobile phone plan? Maybe we’re showing our age a bit, but after all we have been in the game almost 22 years!
Today we’ve done a complete 180, with data being the most important part of any new phone deal we are considering. Carriers picked up on the changing consumer trends and began introducing data caps.
Most of the major network providers now offer some form of unlimited data plans, however with so much now available through your smartphones, from streaming, downloading and hot spotting, customers are now using more data than ever before. And this can often lead to unexpected charges. So how do you avoid this? Well with Barclay’s account management team this won’t happen as every bill is monitored and the customer is alerted before racking up a bill of charges they were not prepared for.
However, if you are dealing with a network provider directly you will rarely be lucky enough to receive this service, so we’ve laid out a few tips and tricks to help you stay within your data allowance.
