Recently, I decided to start “shopping” for a new cell provider. Mind you, my service is ok, but the pricing is outrageous for what I get for service with my current provider, and it is quite honestly not worth the money. At all. I pay more for a low level plan with no bells, no whistles, than most people pay for a smartphone with bells and whistles. We get a small discount due to my husband’s employer, too.
Let me start with the phone. Unlike contract plans, you don’t get a “free” phone with 2 year service agreements. But, then, you don’t have to stay with the plan for 2 years, either. I received the Samsung Intercept for this review. Buying this phone is $199.99- it is an Android smartphone, so you have all of the bells and whistles of a smartphone.
Let’s look at what *I* pay for over a 2 year period. I’m going to say my phone is “Free” and just use the monthly bill. For 24 months, or the average time of a contract with my current provider, I’d pay 24 x $54.00 (rounding up for ease of math) which is $1296.00.
