Brits are wasting almost half of their mobile tariff’s minutes and text allowance each month, it has been suggested.

Comparison website revealed that contract customers are the most wasteful of their allowance, wasting 137 minutes every month.

This equates to 27 hours a year for the average pay monthly mobile phone user.

Mike Wilson, manager of mobiles and broadband at said: "With a rise in the popularity of the iPhone and other smartphones with increased capabilities and internet access, the allowance of texts and minutes on a tariff has become less important."

He added that with these other considerations taking priority, people are wasting more texts and minutes than ever before.

Compared to the 2007 Mobile Money Report by the site, adults are now wasting up to 40 per cent more minutes and twice as many texts.

Consumers looking at upgrading to a contract that better meets their needs may want to consider mobile recycling to get cash for their old handset.
