Cheapest and Best Mobile Plans for Teenagers
Whether your teenager has a pre-paid phone or is on a plan with or without data, you don’t want them going crazy and charge up a $30,000 phone bill from texting their mates. You want both a cheap and good mobile plan that covers what they need and nothing else!
Buy Them Refurbished Phones
Before we even start on the cheapest mobile plans, let’s look at the actual phone. Kids will be kids. They will drop them, they will lose them. That’s why it’s a good idea for the first mobile phone (or second or third) to be a cheaper refurbished phone.
Just because they are second-hand, doesn’t mean they are dodgy or don’t work. In fact, many of the refurbished phone sellers have warranties and guarantee battery life. Look at the following refurbished phone sellers for pricing:
