I love my smart phone, but I really don't like that I'm stuck in a contract. Oh, and the $150 bill each month for a family plan isn't going over too well with my budget either, so it's time to start thinking of better ways to obtain cell phone service. I mainly use my cell phone for texting, reading emails, and the occasional phone call- I'm not big on talking on the phone. Another feature I recently started looking into was a mobile hotspot. Now that my family is going to the beach house every weekend, I need a way to work- there is NO internet service out there and a hotspot is definitely the way to go. The only problem is that with my current plan, I would be spending an additional $70 a month on that, and that just doesn't work for me.
I've been hearing a lot about Boost Mobile and their $40 plans, but I was always afraid of "the catch." What do you mean I can get an unlimited plan of talk, text, and web for only $40 a month? Oh, and without a contract? That's IMPOSSIBLE! Or is it?
Boost Mobile offers Sprint's service and even has a great loyalty plan by offering shrinkiif you pay your bill on time for 6 months in a row, you get $5 off your recurring payments for a maximum of $15 savings! You must be wondering what kind of phone you will get with this awesome package: maybe a phone from the 90s with that famous Nokia ringtone? Perhaps a flip phone that only allows you to make and receive calls. Well, the answer is you can get the latest in cell phone technology with a 4G smartphone. You can stream, record video, and download email, all without sacrificing data speeds.
I had the opportunity to check out the HTC Evo Design 4G and I was impressed by the phone itself. For a smart phone, it is very lightweight and thin, yet it packs a punch with full features and customizing options. I loved the phone and the plan seemed great, so I called up Boost Mobile to see how much a hotspot would be. They told me it would only be an additional $10 a month! That's a great deal when compared to my current cell phone plan. So now, my hubby and I are considering the move to Boost Mobile.
Do you have Boost Mobile? What do you think of your current cell plan?
