But inevitably, with inflation and the concrete need to save money, the desire to lower your telephone bill remains very strong.

It is quite possible to spend less with your mobile plan by essentially turning to a non-binding offer, offered by a trusted operator.

The best carriers to lower your phone bill

Prixtel, the tiered bill

Prixtel has been present in the mobile telephony sector since 2004. This operator, based in Aix-en-France, first targeted professionals during its first years, then turned to the consumer market in 2008 with the Modulo package.

Several factors have contributed to the success of Prixtel, starting with the prices of its offers, which can be adjusted each month according to the use made of them.

When you subscribe to one of the Prixtel packages, you only pay for the amount of data you use: each package has three price levels.

In addition to this innovative proposal, available nowhere else, Prixtel packages include unlimited calls, SMS and MMS in France, Europe and the overseas departments.

As far as non-binding 4G packages are concerned, Prixtel offers several choices.

One of them allows you to access 5G if you want it.

In addition, the company offsets the CO2 emissions of its packages and activities by planting trees in French forests.

You indirectly make a gesture in favor of the environment by choosing a Prixtel package.

Finally, Prixtel operates on the SFR mobile network.

RED by SFR, the à la carte invoice

SFR's low-cost operator, RED by SFR uses its 4G network, but also 5G to operate.

This platform only offers non-binding mobile plans at very reasonable prices.

To enable its customers to have an offer that meets their needs, RED by SFR allows them to compose their own package when they subscribe.

It is thus possible to choose the amount of data available, access to 4G or 5G as well as the international option.

In addition to this much-appreciated “à la carte” dimension, RED by SFR regularly offers promotional offers that allow you to pay even less for your mobile plan.

These good deals are generally only available for a few days, so don't delay to hope to take advantage of them in the best conditions.

NRJ Mobile, the reasonable bill

NRJ Mobile is an MVNO, that is to say a virtual operator which operates on the network of an incumbent operator.

If you decide to subscribe to one of the NRJ Mobile plans, it is the Bouygues Telecom network that you use.

Most of this operator's offer focuses on a selection of 4G packages with, all the same, a 5G package permanently available in its catalog.

However, this is not necessarily the most interesting.

Indeed, the strong point of NRJ Mobile is in its packages stamped "excluded Web", which display very reasonable prices.

Sometimes, the operator even offers a free month of subscription, which simply makes your bill disappear during this period: it's always interesting.

And as the packages are all non-binding, when you want to change, you can do so without any constraints.

B&You, control your bill

B&You is the low-cost branch of Bouygues Telecom: this incumbent operator uses it to offer competitive, non-binding mobile packages on its own mobile network.

4G remains in the spotlight, but a 5G package is also permanently available if you want to benefit from very high mobile speed without breaking the bank.

However, it is especially the 4G packages that display reasonable rates, and can allow you to lower the amount of your monthly bill.

B&You's mobile plans are mainly aimed at people looking for a large data envelope at an affordable price.

There is also a very low price plan with a very small amount of mobile data.

We can all the same regret that there is nothing between the two, but that does not mean that the proposal is not interesting all the same.

Sosh, to each his own bill

To sell its packages without commitment, Orange has chosen to have its own low-cost operator, named Sosh.

This displays a rather varied proposal of 4G packages, accessible on the Orange network.

The amount of mobile data can be very low, medium or high.

The rates are not the lowest on the market, but as the quality of the network is very good, the investment may be justified.

If you need to call regularly to Canada or the USA, Sosh offers a no-commitment mobile plan that continually includes this proposal.

The most interesting packages are those which are indicated as accessible only to new customers of the operator: this is generally the case for those which display promotional rates.

Finally, do not hesitate to come back often to benefit from the best offers at Sosh, especially during the sales or the French Days.

Auchan Telecom, small invoice insured

Auchan Telecom also operates on the Bouygues Telecom network.

This virtual operator displays a rather limited offer of mobile plans, but it focuses on low prices, and it is thanks to this that it has built up a loyal clientele.

The attractive tariffs make it possible to considerably lower your telephone bill compared to the proposals of other operators and it may prove interesting to turn to Auchan Télécom packages if the Bouygues Télécom network interests you.

It happens regularly that the MVNO destocks smartphones at reduced prices with its different packages.

This may involve a commitment, but when the smartphone costs only 1 euro, the proposal can be financially attractive.

Do not hesitate to take an interest in it, you could have a good surprise when changing your mobile plan, and also save money on your new terminal.

How do I see my phone bill?

Today, no mobile telephone operator sends telephone bills by post: from an ecological point of view, but also from an economic point of view, this is an excellent thing.

As many plans include a global proposal which excludes non-packages most of the time, the monthly rate remains fixed and the vast majority of owners of a mobile plan do not feel the need to look in detail at their bill for telephone.

Receiving it by La Poste would therefore amount, in this type of situation, to putting it directly in the trash.

However, if you need or want to access the details of your telephone bill, you can of course do so.

The process is very simple: it always takes place in the customer area of ​​your mobile operator's site.

You can download it in PDF to view it on your computer or smartphone, and possibly print it if you want to keep a record on paper.

Also note that it is possible to access it from the mobile application of your operator.

This can be useful for you if you no longer use a computer.

A touch pad can also do the trick.

How to lower your phone bill: our advice

There are different ways to lower the amount of your phone bill, and most are easy to apply.

Here are the ones you can follow easily.

Take the time to compare plans

There are many similar mobile plans on the French market, but when you take the time to compare them, you can see that the prices can vary enormously from one offer to another.

Sometimes, for two very similar packages, you can see a price difference of up to 5 euros per month.

In the year, this still represents around sixty euros!

In addition, it is also interesting to regularly check the promotions available.

Choose non-binding packages

The main advantage of a non-binding package is that when you find a more interesting offer, you can change it without having to wait!

In addition, switching from one non-binding package to another is very easy, via a single form to fill out: all you have to do is provide the RIO code of your number to your new operator.

This can be obtained by calling 31 79 from your smartphone.

Opt for a package that suits your usage

If you only use 10 GB of data each month, you absolutely don't need a mobile plan that includes a 100 GB envelope. Likewise, if you never call in the United States, ditch the plans that include such an option.

Moreover, if 5G is not really of interest to you, you are sure to save money by opting for a 4G offer.

So many good reflexes that will allow you to save money over time.

Take an interest in blocked plans

Blocked plans are not suitable for everyone, but they can nevertheless be useful to regulate the use of the smartphone by a child, for example.

This category of plan also has the advantage of being cheaper than the others, so it's an interesting trick to save money on the phone bill of the different members of your family.
