Mobile phone contracts – tips for clients

Skip listen and sharing tools

Before buying a mobile phone

Familiarize yourself with these terms:

  • service provider: a company that connects your mobile phone to the network so that you can call and send e-mail messages
  • Premium SMS: Text messages used for services such as voting in reality shows, contests, and content subscriptions. If you choose to send or reply to premium SMS, you may end up signing up for a very expensive service. And it can be hard to cancel without paying extra
  • international roaming: use your mobile phone abroad to make or receive calls. This can be costly. Make sure you read the terms of the contract and know how much you will end up paying for this service
  • 32GB/16GB: These numbers are usually listed in the plan description and refer to the amount of storage on your mobile phone, not the amount of data you can download.


  • how many calls you are likely to make and how many text messages to send
  • how much data you need. For example, if you frequently check email or surf the web, you might want a plan with higher monthly downloads – typically 1 GB or 2 GB per month. For more information about the use of data, please visit the website of the service provider
  • how long do you want to stay on the contract. Contracts can vary from 12 to 36 months. If you’re not happy with signing a contract, try prepaid services first. After the prepaid card runs out, you can choose to stay on that network or choose a different one.


  • do your research and compare prices, terms, and plans from different carriers
  • receive information about services and prices in writing
  • figure out what payments you will have to make if you change or terminate the contract, or if your phone is broken, lost or stolen
  • read the warranty documents to find out what is and is not covered by the warranty
  • figure out how much you will pay if you use your phone abroad.

Look for:

  • a mobile phone that is easy to use
  • a plan you can afford
  • service provider that has good network coverage in your area.


  • often you have to pay more to terminate the contract before it ends
  • Additional charges apply for some services – voicemail, call forwarding, premium SMS, internet usage, software purchases and international roaming
  • visit your service provider’s website or shop to make sure you get network coverage in the areas where you use your
  • mobile phone

  • There may be additional charges for exceeding the call or data download limit.

Mobile Phone Warranty

  • Keep receipts and contracts as proof of your purchase.
  • Retailers and service providers are not required to provide a replacement phone during warranty repairs. However, some of them do so according to their own internal rules.
  • Depending on your contract terms, you may have to continue paying your monthly bill while your phone is being repaired. For more warranty information, please visit our Warranty section.
  • You also have rights under the Australian Consumer Law. If your cell phone stops working, you may be eligible to apply for a refund or replacement. See our Returns, Repairs and Replacements page for more information.

Before signing a mobile phone contract

  • Always read the contract – don’t just rely on what the seller tells you. The mobile phone contract is legally binding. It is usually difficult and expensive to reverse.
  • Be aware of hidden costs and unfair contract terms. For more information, visit our Mobile Phone Suppliers – Unfair Contract Terms page.
  • Never sign a contract you don’t understand – ask someone who understands the contract to explain it to you.
  • Check what your monthly bill will be, plus any additional charges. Make sure you can afford it for the duration of the contract.
  • If you buy a phone and connection from a retail store, you may be entering into two different contracts – one with the retail store for the phone and one with the service provider for the network connection. This means that the retail store will be able to help you if something happens to the phone, but not in case of any network connection problems.
  • Think carefully before acting as a guarantor under a contract for a person under 18 – you will have to pay for their bills if they cannot do it themselves.
  • Learn more about your rights and how to exercise them on our Contracts page.

After signing the contract on mobile phone

  • Keep a copy of the contract in a safe place so that you can refer to it later if needed.
  • Let your service provider know if your situation changes – for example, if your mobile phone is lost or stolen, or if you cannot afford to pay your bills.

How to better control your mobile phone bills

  • Check your data traffic regularly to avoid big bills.
  • Be aware of what your bill should be, and if you see any unusual charges, contact your service provider for clarification.
  • If you need help with budgeting or calculating mobile phone bills, contact the National Debt Helpline.
  • Pay your bills on time or you will have to pay a late fee.

If there is a conflict

  • Contact the store where you bought the phone or your service provider. Additional information on conflict resolution can be found here – Resolve a dispute page.
  • If you are unable to resolve an account or network connection conflict with your service provider, you can contact the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman for assistance.

Kcell: communication to the maximum – news

Mobile operator Kcell was the first in the market of Kazakhstan to launch
sale of contract
phones. In the current year
earned and online store
with full
cycle of registration of contract mobile devices. According to the head of strategic development and
support of sales channels of Kcell JSC Kirill Ivashev, this gave a significant
growth in sales. How much do customers of Kcell online stores today
sophisticated in their desires and how the company uses insights from customers, experts
from Kcell told the correspondent of the business information center.

– Kirill, the format itself
sales of mobile devices under a contract in Kcell stores primarily means profit and convenience. Otherwise, it simply would not make sense to run this service.
Do you follow this principle?

– Yes, the principle of maximum optimization of customer costs
and improving their experience when purchasing mobile devices through our online and offline stores is key. The format for selling a smartphone with a contract involves
linking the tool with the company’s service. Firstly, it is convenient – the client monthly
makes a single payment for communication and for a smartphone, and there is no need for separate payments to the bank and operator. Secondly, the contract is noticeably more profitable than a standard purchase: for many
models we provide exclusive package offers.

– Tell us more about what a single payment for both telephone and communication means? And in what
is the benefit?

Let’s start with
costing. Samsung Galaxy A51 phone, which is offered on the largest marketplace in
Kazakhstan, you can purchase in Kcell stores at
identical price – 119 990 tenge. At the same time, in our stores in this amount
the Kcell cellular service will be included – the current tariff “Zhana”,
whose monthly cost is 2590 tenge (12 GB internet, 100
free minutes for calls from other operators and unlimited calls within the network).
That is, if you purchase a phone in installments for a year for 119,990 tenge,
then save about 30,000 tenge on a subscription fee – about 25%. So
Thus, the buyer pays monthly installments, and receives the tariff as a bonus.

In addition, when buying a phone, setting up, transferring all
data and other manipulations with the device, store managers will
absolutely free. For our customers, this is an important and pleasant service. IN
some other points provide such services for a price that reaches 50% of the cost of the device itself.

But the main thing in our concept of contract phones, like me
already said, this is a single payment for everything. The buyer replenishes the balance of the number, and monthly
money is written off. This payment goes both to installment payment and to the account.
for cellular services. Convenience also lies in prompt information
our customers through personal messages about the promotions we offer.

– Tempting. I suspect that this proposal
for buyers of phones under the contract attracts a considerable number of customers?

– Kcell
focused on providing quality service. For six years
the practice of selling mobile devices through the contract system has doubled
times in quantitative terms, and in monetary terms – five times. Even if you look
data for the last two years only, last year the increase was 5
billion tenge, and in the current year it has grown to 11 billion tenge.

Moreover, every year we have a growing number of repeat
contract sales. Customers come back for a new phone. Our service allows
choose the manufacturer, model, contract term and prepayment amount. In the plans of
us expanding the line of phones and accessories for them.

– Available in your
practice of using insights from buyers? What are the most popular?

– For example, after the launch of the contract phone project, we
received many requests for this service from residents of regional cities and
small settlements where there are no retail chains, and our specialists began to travel there, sell
phones, connect. Besides
we also provided local residents with the opportunity to replenish the balance with all convenient

– That is, Kcell is not limited to sales in its stores
and he goes to the buyers.

– Working with insights, customer feedback is set to the maximum. Every six months we conduct surveys to find out about the interests of our
users. One of the brightest examples is the introduction of unlimited Internet packages initially
for owners of contract phones, and today this package can
anyone who wants to use it. Thanks to insight, in a short time we launched
an online platform through which goods are sold. Situation with
The pandemic has become a catalyst for the growth in demand for this service. That is, relying
on the results of mass surveys, the company introduces goods or services into its
product line.

Director of Strategic
development of Kcell JSC Aibek Nurkadyr summed up our conversation about contract

We try to always meet the expectations of our subscribers, as much as possible
satisfying their requests. This is an important part of our strategy. We have grown

contracts have a positive effect on the LTV (lifetime value) of our client
bases. Each subscriber is valuable for us, regardless of what tariff it is

implements the 250+ program, under which broadband mobile
about 1,000 villages with a population of 250 or more will be connected to the Internet. We
we see that the online sale of contract phones has already interested rural
