How 2000 contract deals are created

- Payment plans are attached to a hand-set in order to create a cell phone contract.
- There are over 160 cell phones on the market.
How a Talk Plan is created
Phonefinder helps find the best cell phone contract
Phonefinder lists all South African Network Service Providers cell phone and data contract deals.
Deals are submitted to Phonefinder by the various Service Providers on a monthly basis.
Every deal is standardised for Phonefinder so that it can be neatly represented on the Phonefinder Listing Bar.
All deals are represented in an unbiased manner which makes deals easier to compare.

In order to make the comparison easier we had to standardise FREE MINUTES.
"Rand Value Airtime" Vs "Free minutes"
Some Networks create deal offerings with a "Rand Value” of free airtime per month (Talk Value)
e.g.: R100 worth of airtime
Other Networks create deals with free minutes
e.g.: 100 Free Minutes
This difference makes it complicated for you to compare similar deals
For example, which deal is better?
Network A: offering R100 worth of free airtime
Network B: offering 100 Free Minutes
If Network A charges R1 per minute then you will receive 100 Free Minutes.
The deals are equal.
If Network A charges R2 per minute then you will receive 50 Free Minutes.
Network B is better.
If Network A charges R0.50c per minute then you will receive 200 Free Minutes.
Network A is better.
Phonefinder therefore standardises all offerings by converted all Talk Value into Free Minutes using the applicable Network per minute rate.

Data Contracts: These are your data-only contracts.
Phone only: These deals are for the phone only. In other words there is no talk plan connected to these deals.
Incentives: Some Service Providers are kind enough to throw in incentives such as a laptop, gift vouchers or phone covers.
Blacklist-friendly deals are provided by our participating Service Providers who, in most cases, can provide blacklisted clients with cell phone contracts*
