We have gathered a few tips to help you to be able to save some money on your cell phone bill so that you can use the money that you save for your own needs instead of using it to line the pockets of the cell phone service companies.
First off, a good way to save some money on your cell phone bill is to limit your in-app purchases (extra bubble’s for Bubble Witch Saga, etc.) as well as to put off buying apps that you can do without (or at least for now). You can also look for free alternatives to paid apps that will do what you need them to do.
An easy way to help cut down on in-app purchases is to go into your account settings for your Android phone, iPhone or any other phone and set your purchases up to require a password for each and every purchase. This will help you to remember that you are trying to save money since you have to enter your password each time you try to make a purchase.
