When it comes to choosing a phone plan that's right for you, there are 3 main things you should be thinking of; the Internet, phone calls and text messages. (There is also roaming abroad and add-ons but we'll get to those later.)

Internet: This includes emails, WhatsApp, browsing the web, apps and social media. If you do any of these, you're looking for a plan with internet allowance. How much allowance you need depends on how often you use the internet. For example, if you watch Netflix on your phone, you can use approximately 1GB of data every hour! This can be bumped up to 3GB of data for High-Definition (HD) streaming. With Three, you get All You Can Eat Data on nearly all plans so you'll be covered to binge on HD movies all day long.

Calls: If possible, sit down with your invoices or mobile phone call log and get a weekly or monthly estimate of how many calls you make and the time spent on each call. Since smartphones became popular along came internet calling apps like Skype and WhatApp, and so we can often underestimate the number of calls we make per week/month. So make sure to have a look at your recently dialled calls and check how many minutes you're using and match it up with the Flexi-units on our plans below. A Flexi-unit is a one minute call or two texts (Applies to any ROI network.)

 

SMS: More simply known as Text Messages. With the rise of WhatsApp and other mobile messaging services, text messages have taken somewhat of a backseat. Just like making calls, make sure not to underestimate how much you use SMS. Think of people you know who don't use a smartphone - do you have an allowance of SMS to stay in touch with these friends or family? At Three, we make this part easy by providing 'Flexi-units' so you can use SMS, or call minutes interchangeably. A Flexi-unit is a one minute call or two texts (Applies to any ROI network.)
