Hello techies: Needing some phone advice!

Community Member

Not sure if its the right forum.

I'm needing a new phone - is it worth getting on a 24 mth plan? Or other good options out there?

Thanks in advance

If you cannot afford to pay outright, or are someone who easily damages or loses your phone, then the plan is probably the safer option; if only for the repair/replacement insurance. My young adult kids use this, and it's save them a lot of money in repairs.

Myself, I prefer to buy outright. A phone usually lasts me 3-4 years before I need a replacement.

Hope that helps
