I can remember after moving out of my parents house, I wasn't equipped with enough money to get my own cell phone. I resorted to a pre-paid and hated it!
In the 6 years since I've moved out, pre-paid, or no contract phones have really come a long way.
Boost Mobile is one of the nations biggest no contract cell phone company right now. Their method of re-filling your mintues is called Re-Boost.
When you need to Re-Boost, you have a few options:
1. You can Re-Boost online with a debit or credit card.
2. You can pay by phone with a debit or credit card.
3. You can pay in person at a retailer.
Boost have a few plans to choose from. They have an Unlimited Text, Phone and Web plan for $50 a month, or you can pay daily for only $2 a day.
6 years ago, when I got my first pre-paid, your options were very limited. You got a very basic phone to make calls and text. Now you can even get a Blackberry No Contract phone.
We currently pay over $90 for an unlimited data, text and phone plan for Jon with his iPhone. Boost has an UNLIMITED Blackberry plan for $60! Umm...hello! Can you say Leslie is stupid! LOL We will be re-evaluating our cell phone plans once our contract comes due.
The reason we love the iPhone so much is it's ability to stay in touch with our Social Network. I am constantly checking my Facebook and Twitter. When I took a trip to Iowa to visit my mom in June, I used sites like Facebook and Twitter to keep my family updated on how my trip was going. I would update at state lines, at rest stops, and when we stopped for lunch. My aunt actually mentioned it to me. She said that while I was on the road driving there and home, she would login to see what state I was on, and how much longer until I reached my destination.
Boost has a variety of "Web ready" phone for you to keep in contact with your social network as well. You are able to choose a Blackberry Curve for only $149.99. As I mentioned above, an unlimited Blackberry plan is only $60 a month! What a great deal!
If a Blackberry isn't your thing, they also have the Motorola il, with an unlimited plan of $50 a month.
I fully plan on checking out Boost in a few months when our contract is up, I hope you do too!
