PostPoints tip: Don't rush to renew a wireless contract
If your wireless-phone service is nearing the end of the one- or two-year contract you signed when you bought your last phone, your carrier will probably be imploring you to sign a new one. But if your old phone works fine and the new plan the carrier offers doesn't offer any great advantage over your old one, don't bother. Your service plan will remain in effect even after your contract expires. Meanwhile, without early-termination fees to worry about, you'll have more freedom as a customer than you've ever known in the wireless business. You can see what other carriers can offer you, bargain with your current firm or get rid of your service entirely--and your carrier can't do a thing about it except send junk mail begging you to re-up. Enjoy it while it lasts!
