The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
In the January 6th, 2013 Plus Edition of this newsletter, I wrote (at http://eogn.com/wp/?p=23432) about a cell phone service I have been using that offers unlimited* usage, contract-free smartphone plan for $19 a month.
Please note the asterisk on the word "unlimited." Actually, there are some restrictions but I found them to be minor limitations.
I am using an Android “smartphone” that not only places and receives telephone calls but also surfs the web with a built-in web browser, sends and receives text messages, reads and writes email messages, takes pictures, reads and updates my calendar, maintains a large phone book, displays maps, provides directions, plays games, and much, much more. There is no contract to sign. I am not locked in for a year or two. Best of all, I will save $1,645 over the next two years compared to keeping my old cell phone service.
After two months of daily use, I haven't come close to the limitations yet and I doubt if I ever will. I continue to be a satisfied user and have now retired my old, and expensive, cell phone. However, the new cell phone provider has now added an additional payment option to reduce the impact of the original purchase price.
