Thrifty Little Tip... Get a Go Phone

>> 8.20.2009

Wait! Before you go anywhere... I'm not talking about getting a pre-paid phone plan.


I'm just telling you to buy the phone. I learned this tip from a friend and it has saved me big bucks so far! You see, I have a habit of losing or breaking my phones (I average 4 a year). Whenever one broke, I would end up either extending my cell plan contract or getting a new phone from the AT&T store for big bucks.

Thanks to that friend, I know that I can just head over to Target, get a cheapo Go Phone (it has all the features I need), and pop my SIM card in the back. Even if my phone is lost, all I need to do is ask AT&T for another SIM card (free) and use that with the Go Phone. Not resigning the contract saves me from more trouble in the long run as well. Gotta love a good cheap and quick fix!

Have any trick for saving money with cell phones?

Wow I never would have thought to do that but it's such a good solution!

Kasey, thank you SO much! I dropped my iPhone today and it is dead. If I hadn't read this entry, I wouldn't have known that I could hold out for a new iPhone until my contract is up in March.

At least, I think I can hold out. I have to go see if those Go phones can carry social media applications.
