Evan needed a cell phone to take with him to and from college this year. I sold him mine. Now I find that I'd like to have my phone back - or get a new one.
After giving people so much advice concerning cell phones and the various plans out there, I decided to check them out a little better. After all, I am considering another cell phone. First up was to get some testimonies from other cell phone users.
Next, I checked coverage maps. Few of the mobile companies have complete coverage for our area. Some that do charge outrageous prices. Quite often they require a contract plan. I don't want a plan. I simply want a pay-as-you-go phone for the times that I just want to Call a friend or a family member.
A biggie that could cause me to fall Hook, line and sinker is a good answer to this question:
What brands and quality cell phones are available with this company?
Of course, there are many options. Android on Straight Talk is one of them. Other smart phones are available as well as the more basic phones (my choice). When researching mobile phones you might want to ask yourself some simple questions:
- Do I want texting capabilities?
- How often, (or do I need to), access the internet with my cell phone?
- Do I want to have video and camera capabilities?
- How much am I going to use this phone?
- Do I need it for business or personal use - or both?
- How much do I want to spend on this phone?
Everything you need in a smart phone can be found in Nokia smart phones. Other brands are available from Straight Talk as well. They have reconditioned phones that have cameras, mp3 players, mobile internet access, and blue-tooth capabilities, starting at $10.00.
Monthly plans are available for those who want them. There are lots of options so I urge you to check out Straight Talk if you're in the market for a new phone and plan.
