I’ve been doing a little research today trying to find a good cell phone plan for the both of us but can’t really find something that has a good price. I mean, they are all expensive and I can’t justify spending $100 just to be able to call each other for free when he’s at work or when he goes on his breaks.
The only reason we need these cell phones are so when I’m riding my bike or I’m at the store or at the mall then he can call me and I’ll be able to answer the phone. I think I might have found a solution to the problem.
AT&T has the Go Phone that is a Nokia 2610 for $30 and it’s a prepaid cell phone so you pay $25 for the phone card and they basically charge you $1 for every day that you use your phone plus .10 cents per minute. So it wouldn’t be very good for using every day if you are strapped for cash. But it does have free unlimited mobile to mobile calling which is what we are looking for. Now, I don’t know if that means that we still have to pay $1 per day with the unlimited mobile to mobile, I’m sure it does. But that’s ok, it’s only $25 a month each phone.
I bought the cell phone that I have now in 2002 when I first started visiting my aunt in Simi Valley because Darrin would call me and it was irritating her. So I bought a pre-paid cell phone through T-Mobile and it has served it’s purpose but it’s time to let it go. The phone got so old that it would just die all of a sudden. I’d charge the battery fully but the phone would still die. I ended up buying another one to replace it last year at the swap meet but this one is shutting off while Darrin uses it now too. It’s the same model so maybe I should have upgraded lol. So it’s time for new cell phone(s).
The Go Phone just seems like the better plan for us right now. At least it has a color screen and you can download ringtones that aren’t midi. I hate those old ringtones lol.
