The Perpetual Presence of the Mobile Phone
The mobile phone has become an integral part of society over a very short space of time but this means that there is high demand for phones and airtime. There are now four or five major competitors who offer contracts both on a long and short term basis and all of these a vying for your business.
This is all well and good but finding the correct package for your needs takes a little time, trial and evaluation. For the younger generation who are perhaps slightly more adept at using mobile technology, a pay-monthly contract that stretches over a period of months is perhaps the best option. These long term contracts often allows for a greater amount of airtime to be purchased at a lower rate, although you are tied into a contract for a set period of time with no escape clause.
It is important that you select the right option so that you can keep track of personal finances and prevent spending more money than necessary; although this can admittedly be a struggle due to the fixed options that are available. It is possible to get either a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) SIM card meaning that you simply put money on the card and this reduces as you send SMS messages and make phone calls.
One of the most popular options of the modern era – SIM cards have evolved with the mobile phone – is the 30 day rolling contract. Being able to subscribe to a contract and receive all the benefits that a long term contract offers without being tied in to a number of months, appears to be the best of both worlds.

While mobile phones are in many ways a luxury, an indulgence, they are also important tools for business and safety. Having a mobile phone fulfils one of the most basic human needs, to stay in communication with loved ones. Whether you are travelling around the corner to a friend’s house or across the country on a business trip, it is important to be able to both inform your family members that you have arrived safely as well as be able to contact your company if the purpose of your travel is business related.
Mobile communication of course has its drawbacks too. On the simplest of levels the inability to escape the office can prove to be extremely stressful. Society demands that we live in a contradictory society of perpetual communication and isolation as the vast majority of communication is conducted through some form of electronic, mobile technology.
