    Kev change your tarrif mate!! I used to average £300 to £350 mobile bills per month!

    I changed to T mobile and I am now on a tarrif that is 1100 free minutes, 100 free texts, calls to land lines are free at anytime, I can cross network within my free minutes and call other T mobile phones for nothing. My bill never goes over the tarrif rate which is £105.00 a month!
