At the end of the old plan, not only a new plan is chosen, but also a new mobile phone, or the change of plan is determined by the desire to have a new mobile device.
Mobile operators are making good use of this situation. By giving them a new plan with a new phone, they tie the user to their network. Statistics show that the market today is mainly for mobile operators selling new phones.

In the course of the survey, we found that other phone sellers, in order to compete with mobile operators, who can offer their customers a cheaper price when buying a plan, offer their gifts: gift vouchers, cards or accessories. In this way, buyers also save on the cost of a new phone at the box office and pay the full price.
