Whenever choosing between different contracts, don’t be afraid to take your time choosing the one that fits your lifestyle. Cell phone packages can be overwhelming at the time and it’s easy to choose the wrong one. 24 months is a long time and it’s a big commitment – so it doesn’t hurt to be sure! Don’t ever sign up for the first contract you see and make sure that you read all the fine print and know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.
