Cancelled Verizon who we had for over 12 years and went with a Tracfone. Bought them all thru either QVC.com or Hsn.com.
Ya I know shopping off the TV. I wait till they have a good special and just upgrade our phones every year.
Our phones have cost us between $99 & $129, are the closest we'll come to the latest & greatest.
For the price we get a new phone, 1 year of service, 1200 free minutes, 1200 free text & 1200 gigs of data. When I see that we're getting low on minutes I start looking for a new special.
If I was to go buy a service/minute card I would pay $99 to add another 1200 of each minutes/text/data to my existing phone or just get the same along with a new phone.
When I activate the new phone, I have them port my old number over (so it never changes) and they transfer all that I have left from old phone to new and still add the new.
Right now, my phone has 2,685 minutes, 4,972 text messages & 3,578.5 g's of data along with 560 days to use them.
The service is thru either Sprint & AT&T or T-Mobile. Don't remember at the moment. All I do know it that service here at home is better now than it was with Verizon.
Clints phone is a SAMSUNG ANDROID and I just traded mine for an ALCATEL One Touch POP with a 5" screen.
Total cost: $99 divided by 12 and $129 divided by 12 ($8.25 mo & $10.75 mo) less if I don't use up all my time etc. That comes to $19 a month for both of us & we can cancel AT ANY TIME.
