I am likely to buy a wireless telephone in the near future and to save money, I will spend a great deal of time looking through my options and the available plans because phone costs can significantly affect a family’s budget. I’ll save for it like I save for all my purchases-all of my income goes into savings and I pay expenses from a deposit into my checking account to cover known expenses. This helps eliminate unnecessary and whim expenses.
When deciding about your telephone purchase consider the following criteria:
Do you have medical reasons that make a wireless phone valuable or would a medical service be a better choice? Are your service requirements local, regional, countrywide or international? Can you save costs by having only one telephone service company? Is there a discount plan that you are qualified to receive? Can you save costs with a multiple phone plan? Can you save costs by eliminating expensive features? Will a fixed time plan provide additional savings? Is the phone easy to carry and operate? Am I ready to be annoyed by having a full time internet service phone?
About the Decision for a Wireless or Hardwire Telephone Company
My husband and I decided to go wireless for medical and personal safety reasons and wanted to have a phone on us at all times. Because we could get two wireless phones for nearly the same price as a single wireless phone, we decided to get rid of the extra cost for a home line.
It takes effort to get used to carrying a phone at all times, but we find it saves money compared to what we had paid installing phone outlets in every room. Most wireless phones require replacement every 2-3 three years but the wireless companies provide a credit toward the exchange of phones.
9-11 service is good even on wireless phones, my husband recently placed a call to 9-11 in Boston when a man entered the hotel we were staying at and collapsed. Some medical services offer single button 9-11 service, these may be a better choice than a phone for those with medical conditions.
About Selecting a Wireless Phone Company
My husband and I travel a great deal and it affected our decision for choosing a wireless telephone company. We tried several but we found that in the most places in the United States and Canada, we were able to get direct wireless telephone service through Verizon.
We both worked for the Boeing Company and Boeing offers a discount to employees and retirees for Verizon wireless telephone service. Local telephone companies can offer more competitive prices than ones that provide service across the country and internationally. Verizon has a special page to check employee rates. Cell Phone Rate Plan allows comparisons between wireless plans with ease.
About Choosing a Wireless Phone
I am unlucky with electronics, I tend to do things like put my phone in my pocket and have it fall into the toilet. After entering my address list by clicking three times on each button once, I decided I preferred to enter it into something I could download onto my phone. I find that when I touch the antennae of my wireless phone, I drop the call. My husband purchased a telephone and brought it home but it couldn’t receive service from anywhere in our home except the back deck. All of these items make certain phones more desirable than others. Best Cell Phone Deals allows you to compare Phone models by phone company but I will also visit the service center and try one out before I select a brand.
About Selecting a Wireless Phone Service Plan
I may want one that offers internet access. Since I used my phone once in connection with the internet, I’ve received so many sales calls I am likely to buy a personal use only phone to protect my private non-internet connected space. If you get an internet accessible phone, be aware that they beep with every message you receive online. An internet connected phone is very expensive, be sure that your use is warranted. Many parents have limited texting and internet connected use by having children by phone cards that limit their online time and preventing huge run ups in costs.
