Are free mobile minutes really free?
Getting free minutes with your mobile phone deal all comes down to picking the right package. As we have already explained, you can get free minutes with most contracts. However, how many free minutes you are entitled to will always depend on the package you pick.
You can find a whole range of deals that do genuinely give you free minutes. And there are plenty of mobile phone tariffs offering double talk-time deals or, for the more talkative among us, unlimited mobile minutes.
Unlimited minutes are a great way for those of us that love to chat to cash in on the mobile network's generosity. Find one of these and you never need worry about going over your allocated minutes and getting a hefty bill again. Simply pay a set amount each month for unlimited talk time. With unlimited talk time you will never be out of credit, never be over your budget and always be able to chat!
It is worth bearing in mind that free minutes are not always completely free. Sometimes these free minutes are referred to as 'inclusive' rather than free minutes, acknowledging that you do make some payment for them. But in even the worst case scenario, you will find that you pay a heavily discounted rate for a set amount of free or inclusive minutes as part of your standard monthly subscription fee to the network.
