THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED We all know how important it is to avoid unexpected bills, especially in this challenging financial climate. In an effort to reduce the shock factor and help manage the family monthly spend; Tesco Mobile has launched a new service that allows you to cap the amount spent on a mobile contract each month. When all the minutes, texts and data are used up, the phone will need to be topped up in order to be used, preventing any risk of running up unexpected bills.
Tesco Mobile’s new smart solution is particularly great for families, with a recent study finding that the majority of British parents (96%) who pay their child’s mobile bill in full estimate their kid’s average bill to be £40 per month. Yet, when asked what they thought their average phone bill cost, over a third of the teens (38%) questioned assumed their monthly phone bill was £10 or less!
The Tesco Mobile capped tariff allows parents not only to lighten the load on their wallets, but also to share some of the responsibility with teens, giving them an early and much needed lesson in financial management.
Unlike other networks, Tesco Mobile is the first network to enable its customers to be able to cap the tariff on every handset, including the BlackBerry Curve 9300.
This fantastic mobile phone from RIM includes a full QWERTY keyboard for texting and emailing, as well as Wi-Fi and 3G, so you can remain connected on-the-go or anywhere with a Wi-Fi hot spot.
On-board is also BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), a cheap, secure and efficient way of sending messages between BlackBerry devices. BBM now supports connected apps, so for example you can use the FourSquare app to share your location with other users.
To be in with a chance to win this fantastic phone in graphite grey answer the following question:
BlackBerry Messenger uses your data connection, which means it’s far cheaper than sending a text message: How much data do you get a month on Tesco Mobile’s BlackBerry Curve 9300 24 month tariff, for £25 a month?
1: No data
1: Make sure you are following Recombu and Tesco Mobile on Twitter.
