Two to three times a year I sit down and re-evaluate our family budget to see if we’re staying on track and to find any potential areas for saving. Every time I do, I pause when I get to our cell phone bill which is almost $250 per month.
Because of my job and my husband’s frequent travels, unlimited data is pretty much a necessity for us. With two teenagers who communicate almost entirely via text, unlimited texting is also a must. My mom is also on our plan. So, 5 smart phones with unlimited everything runs us about $50 per phone.
Yes, it’s a lot of money, but because we use our phones as cameras, video recorders, game systems, in addition to their primary role of helping us keep in touch with one another, it’s a price we have accepted.
Save Money With Republic Wireless
I was elated when I discovered that we can shave off over $30 per month from the cell phone bill that I considered set in stone. Republic Wireless offers a smartphone service that costs just $19/month.
For $30 less than what I pay now, my kids would still enjoy unlimited talking, texting, and surfing without a contract!
And in case you missed it, this is for a smartphone, not a base-model, no-frill flip phone. The Republic Wireless plan comes with the Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone.
The Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone is equipped with these features:
· Front-facing VGA Webcam
· Rear-facing camera with auto focus/LED Flash and 4x digital zoom
· Android operating system with wi-fi and Sprint® 3G Coverage with dual-band reception
· Over 450,000 apps through Google Play™
· 3.7” Corning® Gorilla® glass display
· Dustproof, water and scratch resistant
So, for far less than I am paying now, I can provide my kids (and my mom) with smartphones that can do everything their phones do now, without being tied down by a contract, for far less money. This is what I like to refer to as a “no-brainer.”
Save Money On Your Cell Phone Service
If you are one of the old school “I only use my phone for making calls” type of cell-phone user who has been toying with the idea of trying out a smartphone, this is a risk-free and inexpensive way to get your feet wet.
Likewise, it’s a great way to introduce your kids to a smartphone if they have reached an age that you think is appropriate but aren’t certain if they are responsible enough.
In either scenario, you could try a smartphone out for a couple of months to see if it works for you (or your child) and if it doesn’t, simply cancel the service. No one or two-year commitment. No early cancellation fees.
