T Mobile You Fix tariffs are primarily aimed at parents buying a contract for their child, because You Fix tariffs mean you fix the monthly price, and the monthly allowance. If a child wants access to extra minutes, texts and internet, they can "top up" the You Fix tariff with extra money, just as if it were a pay as you go tariff, and keep calling and texting right up to the end of the month!
It is the UK law that contracts cannot be taken out by persons under the age of 18, therefore a child wanting to get the extra allowances that a contract provides is required to get their parent to take it out for them.
But children, most especially teens, are notoriously heavy users of mobile phones, and when the parents are picking up the bill and the end of the month, it is easy to slip into sending more texts and making more calls than they given in the allowance. That can make for one angry parent!
Enter You Fix, the tariff designed to give parents peace of mind, and children the freedom to keep calling for as long as they like!
So how do You Fix tariffs work? You still need to take out a contract, which has a monthly cost. With your monthly cost you get and allowance of minutes and texts to use throughout the month, just as you would on a normal contract. And, being T-Mobile, you also get a Flexible Booster - an additional allowance that you can choose, and change each month should you wish to do so.
Some popular flexible boosters include unlimited texts, where you can ungrade your text allowance per month to make it unlimited, and the internet booster. This provides you with 500MB of internet access for the month.
For parents buying for their children, there is safety and security in the allowances that the You Fix tariff provides. The key point is that the price per month is fixed, so a poor, long-suffering parent will only need to pay one expected cost per month and no more! Once the child has used up all their allowances for the month, that's it. They can't eat into their parent's bank account by sending extra calls and texts at the premium billing rate, nor rack up huge bills by spending way too long browsing Facebook over a 3G connection.
But for kids though, this can be a bit of a drag! After all, most teens use their phone as the primary method of contacting their mates, and it would be cruel to deny your child such important social contact (or at least, that's what they'll tell you!)
So with You Fix you can top up your tariff at any point in the month to give you extra money to make calls and texts, and keep you going til month-end! Just call up T-Mobile to get your top-up added, or use My T-Mobile to top up online!
