Verizon Wireless commented that in the current economic climate, everyone is searching for low-cost products. However, it added there was no need for consumers to lose out on the best devices around.
The first piece of advice it offered was ensuring the contract you opt for – whether it is prepaid or monthly – is the plan that best fits your individual lifestyle.
It recommended test driving the network in advance wherever possible and looking at what deals are available on text and picture messaging bundles, free accessories and customer reward schemes.
Christine Baron, a spokeswoman for Verizon Wireless, commented: "The bottom line for anyone looking to get the most for their money is value and reliability."
Those looking for a new phone on a budget may also wish to consider recycling older handsets, as cash from your mobile phone can be used to pay for an upgrade.
