There are thousands of mobile deals currently available for customers looking to buy a new smartphone on contract, which can at times make it a bit difficult to choose one. A new online marketplace has just launched to with the aim of helping with this tedious task.

Phonefinder lists mobile contract deals offered by MTN, Cell C, Vodacom and Telkom, SmartMobile, CellSpot and Virgin Mobile SA as well as repair services, insurance packages, accessories and games for all major cellphone brands according to a press statement.

You also have the option to build your own deal. You can specify which network you’re interested in, the price range you’re happy with as well as your preferred smartphone manufacturer.

Phonefinder aggregates all of the available deals that meet those criteria for easy browsing and comparison.

Once you’ve found a suitable deal, click Call Me and fill in a contact form, and you will shortly be contacted by the relevant network to discuss the deal further.

“Every deal is made up of a talk plan and a device. With multiple talk plans on offer from multiple networks and attached to multiple devices… well, that’s a lot of deals,” said Phonefinder’s Lance Krom in the media statement.
