Anyway to pick a bill threshold in 30 day contracts

Hi,

I am currently on pay as you go and would like to swap to 30 day rolling contract as it is costing me too much money for what its worth.

I am wondering if you know any networks that can allow some kind of upper threshold. Reason being is, if the off chance my phone rang someone and I didn't intend too - I don't want to end up with a large bill at the end.

A friend said that his T-mobile worked like that but I am wondering whether he got the wrong end of the stick (as his parents paid for it per month) as by limiting - they could be potentially ruining their own profits from people making silly mistakes.

Greatly appreciated if someone could help.

3 let you cap the bill at whatever price you decide.

T-Mobile won't let me do it for some reason though.

Having said that if you're regularly ringing people by mistake then you need a phone with a keylock.

Well, mistakes can happen and I would rather be on the edge of caution.

What about virgin mobile? I assume not but that £5 a month - 100 minutes and unlimited texts looks quite good.

I think your friend is referring to the T-mobile fixed Solo plan. Where its part contract, part payg. It's the same amount every month, and as soon as the free allowances run out it switches to payg so you have to top up if you want to make calls. This way you can never go over your monthly price as it's always the same amount.

best bet, go to giffgaff, is pay as yo ugo so you cannot go over and get charged however much the company feel like, they have the goody bags if you want decent allowances of stuff, best network out there imo works over o2 compatible in there sim locked phones
