We’ve classified them following 3 types: the cheapest possible, the average user and the heavy user. In all 3 cases, we’re considering the “Bring Your Own Device” plans. If you want to buy a cellphone, we suggest you use our comparator.

You don’t use your cellphone a whole lot, only to make emergency call or to meet with friends. We’d suggest you to opt for a voice and text plan, with 200 calling minutes.
