I am talking about mobile phone myths some of which are outrageous so to speak. We’ve come to take the said myths as gospel truths that challenging the fallacious beliefs has become somewhat of an uphill task. We all have received emails forwarded religiously every now and then on the dos and don’ts regarding mobile phones and their use.

While this is always the major selling point of many mobile phone contract providers, the reality of the matter is that this is not always the case. In certain cases, the devil is always in the details. We’ve also seen instances where various mobile phone contract providers increase prices to the existing customers on the pretext of inflation or as a result of any other factor which by all means might be a surprise to a customer who had a fixed budget. It is therefore important that you carefully read the fine print prior to appending your signature on the dotted line of a phone contract.
