Get a Land Line With Unlimited Calling for Almost Zero Dollars a Month !
Save BIG MONEY: 1-on a Cell 2-on a Land Line
First let’s talk cell phones. If you are a Verizon customer, you are probably hooked into a two year deal and are paying upwards of $60 per month for less than five hundred minutes of time. Lord help you if you go over your minutes - Verizon won’t.
The other major companies charge a comparable amount. All of them flog you with gigantic fees if you go over your minutes. They all also charge you for the phone. They may say it’s free but you are paying for it one way or the other.
On average people are paying between $800 and $1500 per year for basic cell phone service. And that service in many areas is very spotty. Where I live on Cape Cod, many people have to go outside to make or take a call on the cell. I have seen people in the middle of the winter, standing on the yellow line that halves a street, balancing on one leg trying to get reception on the bleeping cell phone.
How can you beat Verizon, AT & T, T Mobil etc.????????? They have a monopoly right? Wrong?
I know how to beat them but you may not like the answer.
It’s Walmart. Now, I know many people hate Walmart for a hundred different reasons. But let me tell you right now, they have a cell phone plan that is BETTER BY FAR THAN ANYTHING ELSE OUT THERE.
Here’s the deal. With the Walmart plan, you get a very good phone for free. You do not have a contract. You can buy service for a single month. You can renew on a monthly basis. You can quit anytime. You can quit one month then start up again several months later.
The phone is free. You pay only $30.00 a month for the service. For your $30 you get 1000 minutes of talking time. You get 1000 texts. And you also get 30 mb of web access. Further, you get 411 (Information) for free!.
Wait there’s still more. You also get the Verizon or AT and T networks. The Walmart phones run on the other guys' networks. So if you have gotten great coverage from Verizon, you will get the same from the Walmart phone.
If you wish, you could get a new phone every month for your $30.00. In six months you could have six phones!!!! Yes you can keep your old number if you care to.
To access this deal go to www,straight talk.com/ Look under service plans. There are several options. There is a $45.00 offering that gives you unlimited talk and text and unlimited web access.
I tested the $30 plan in Dennis Port on Cape Cod where the cell reception is so bad that if cell phones were cars, everyone would have a horse. The Walmart phone for $30 per month was far better than the expensive Verizon and AT & T plans that I had previously tried.
Keep in mind, if you lose your Walmart phone, or it breaks or whatever, you will get another one (along with the 1000 minutes and texts) as soon as you pay another $30.00. Get one a month for the first couple of months so that you will have a few back up phones and batteries.
HUGE SAVINGS ON A LAND LINE: Many people are ditching their land lines to save a few bucks and are using the cell as their only phone. This is especially inconvenient if you live in an area of spotty cell reception. It’s also a pain if you have a tendency to do a lot of talking and you are close to going over your minutes. Cellphones are so problematic that if they were cars, they would ALL BE RECALLED! So, it's still a good idea to have a land line; and I found one that is reliable and virtually free.
I got the Magic Jack Plus and one full year of telephone service at no extra cost. No computer is required. The Magic Jack plugs into the wall. I get free local and long distance calls anywhere in the U.S.A. and Canada. Free international calls. Free Directory Assistance. I get free voicemail and caller ID. The service includes not only free 411, but also 911.
I was a skeptic but decided to gamble the $70 and within two days I was a preacher for the company. The service works better than I expected. My calls are clear and loud. I have never had a single problem with the service in the nine months that I have had it. By the way, the first year of service is free with the purchase of the unit. Next year I will pay $30.00 for the whole year!
Here's a quick review. You do not need a computer for the Magic Jack Plus, but you do need an internet connection. You plug the Magic Jack into the wall and you can make and receive calls anytime. It does not matter if your computer is on or off.
I can’t say enough about this product. If you need a land line and want to save buckets of money, get a Magic Jack Plus. I recommend that you buy it at Radio Shack. They can help you with any questions that you have. They can sell you a phone to go with it, if you need one. Also, if you buy it at the Shack, you don’t have to pay shipping.
Another bonus. You can take your phone with you. If you go South for the winter. Your phone and your number go with you. If you go on vacation in the Summer - same deal. Bring your magic jack with you and your phone will be where ever you are.
This product is truly amazing. It's one time that something too good to be true, really is true. Truly!!!
As of January 2013, I am in my second year of MJ PLUS and I renewed my service for the whole year for just $29.00.
