    Save On Your Wireless Bill, No Contracts, Unlimited, Free 411

    By lighthouse

    Now is a good time to take a look around at what is available from the wireless companies and compare plans. Some of the smaller wireless providers such as Republic wireless and MetroPCS are offering no contract cell phones and low rate plans with unlimited wireless service. This is their way of competing with their larger rivals, who, up until recently, have been stuck on higher costs and contracts.

    Imagine taking the limits off of your current mobile device, starting out contract free! Couple that with unlimited WiFi, data, talk, and text at plans as low as $35 a month per phone with 4G! Other plans, unlimited cell talk, text, and data at 3G for $25 a month and you got some huge savings! Republic wireless even offers the ability to change your plan up to twice a month, just in case there is no WiFi at the beach.

    Why am I writing this article, because I had Verizon for quite a while and switched to ATT. With ATT I ended up moving into an area were the signals were weak at best. This was experienced on both of our wireless phones. I contacted ATT and they sent someone out to check the signal in the area. Now the nearest antenna is about a mile and a half away. They supposively came back with “no problems” in the area, according to ATT. But in talking to ATT they suggested that I get a booster antenna from one of their local stores. That is just not congruent with there are no problems in the area. Anyway after dealing with numerous people at ATT it really became obvious that they just did not want to make the investment, but they wanted to take my money!

    I was paying $125 at the time for two phones with no text, 250megs of data, (whoopie!), and rollover minutes, which was the one good thing. So I began to comb the web for wireless deals, plans that I could switch from ATT without buying new phones as well. I was delightfully surprised by what I found. I annualized 5 wireless providers, Republic wireless, MetroPCS, Virgin mobile, T-mobile, and Sprint. These were the ones who were, at the time, offering the best prices. I looked for no contract plans and the prices for services. I ended up getting a wireless deal, with no contract, unlimited, for $40 per phone, with $5 off per phone, for a grand total of $70 a month, flat fee, no hidden agendas.

    Now my wife wisely questioned what I was about to do, asking “well are you sure their service is good in our area?” In which I responded; I doubt it, but I would rather pay $55 dollars less than to continue as we were. As it turns out, I have not had any dropped calls as of yet, (knock on wood), but I always had them with ATT.

    The downside was that I could not dial 411 from my ATT phone. My new provider suggested getting an app for that. So I resorted to another web search, this time for free 411. Yes it exists, no more paying $1.50 for 411 service. The service has it’s quirks, advertising at the beginning of the call and advertising before you get the number, but for me it’s short enough that I don’t mind. Besides that, I generally use 411 less than once a month, and only when I am away from home. The number to dial for free 411 service is 800.373.3411
