To date, nearly 15 million people have received a free cell phone thanks to the US government.
To date, 49 states and the District of Columbia as well as Puerto Rico are participating in the program along with many phone companies that people can choose from as their providers.
The very first thing you will need to do is find the providers in your state that offers the free government phone.
Once you have narrowed the field to a few, go to the website of each provider and look at the phones that they offer. You will need to make the choice between the providers and once you do you’ll have to enroll. Your phone will arrive by mail and it may be in as little as one week or it may take several weeks depending on a number of factors. Money Saving Tip: An incredibly effective way to save more is to reduce your mobile phone cost.
Millions of people today are waiting with anticipation to get the latest smartphone or tablet.
Otherwise known as MVNOs, you’ll find that these companies are usually branded differently but run on the same network as larger carriers. Although the best Verizon Wireless deals are offered by national carriers and dealers, you may find that your region is open to lower costing plans. Prepaid options are springing up from major carriers, and they can drive down the price of your monthly bill. Many companies will charge your credit card or debit card automatically, and for the privilege, they will discount your plan anywhere from $5 to $10.
If you absolutely need the best phone in the industry, you can look for Verizon Wireless upgrade deals or buy it straight out without a contract.
There have been some huge changes going around both the prepaid and postpaid phone market in the last few years. It seems like all of the carriers and MVNOs are busy shouting over each other that data is the most important, and that’s what everyone should want. While prepaid phone plans provide more flexibility, they are sometimes a little bit more confusing.
Amid steady changes to their postpaid prices and offerings, Sprint has made a few tweaks to their Sprint Prepaid plans this week.
While saving 20% doesn’t seem like much (anywhere from $6 to $14 with the most expensive monthly plan), the activation and porting over are both free, which can definitely save you some money. If you’ve been following phone carrier news at all, you probably are aware of the pricing battle going on in the postpaid market between Sprint and their obnoxious pink rival, T-Mobile. No-contract wireless prepaid plans have become more and more common and it seems like all of the four major carriers have monthly plans, prepaid brands or both. If you’re a GoSmart or Brightspot user, you might have noticed faster uploads and better speeds. Red Pocket has changed around their Flagship Plans this week and they now have plans using all four big carriers, although they don’t actually use their names. T-Mobile seems to be on a roll with the announcements this month, and the Un-carrier is trying to shake things up in the prepaid market yet again. They also have introduced a new Gold Reward Status, which rewards customers with more minutes that last longer once they have invested $100 in prepaid minutes on their phones. I spent several minutes on the phone with a representative talking about the different options. Unlimited mobile broadband prepaid plans are exactly what new cellphone users are flocking for many various reasons. Being tied down to a strict two-year contract can be daunting, especially because of the associated fees involved if the contract is broken; which may be the reason so many cell phone users are turning to pre-paid plans instead to avoid paying more with conventional contract carriers and being stuck with them on a long-term plan.
T-Mobile MVNO Lycamobile is running a new promotion in which it offers 20% off of all its prepaid service plans. T-Mobile MVNO Lycamobile has introduced many changes to its National and International plans. It seems that the change announced six months ago that included raising Lycamobile’s Pay As You Go minute rate from 2 cents to 5 cents per minute has started being effective.
T-Mobile MVNO Lycamobile has changed its mind on increasing high speed data allotments on the $35 plan from 1 GB of data to 4 GB and on the $45 plan, from 3 GB of high speed data to 6 GB. Lycamobile that operates on T-Mobile network has added more high speed data to most of its National plans.
In a program formally run by Lifeline Assistance, the endeavor is considered by many to be one of the most successful if not the most prolific ever and has allowed people to find work as well as stay in touch with family and friends.
However, despite the ease in which many people have qualified, you still have to take three steps in order to get your free government phone. Each state has its eligibility requirements that have to be met before you can get a phone, so knowing this in advance is very important.
You can either enroll over the phone or through the company’s website which is arguably preferable thanks to the documentation that they might ask you to upload.
Click here for current Sprint phone upgrade deals and see if you qualify for discounts on the latest smartphones. They are doing so without thinking about the cost of the phone plan that they will need to have in order to run some of these. The issue that some people have with this is in regards to customer service since many smaller companies don’t have the funds to have a large support staff or team. Larger metropolitan areas with hefty populations will have a great number of regional carriers with discount plans.
Some companies will even offer unlimited plans with as much talk time, data, and text as you can possibly want. You could save money in the long term, and if you take good care of your phone you won’t need it. That’s right, you could save money by just enrolling into one of these plans moving forward. You could save more money by simply looking into used phones, or even purchasing a simple phone with limited features. Postpaid carriers are starting to move away from contracts and prepaid carriers are offering more monthly plans and dropping their per-minute pay-as-you-go options. Every carrier is a little different, and prepaid phones have come a long way since their introduction in the early 2000s. During the month of September, if you activate a new number on Page Plus (through Kitty Wireless) or port over a number to Page plus (again, through Kitty Wireless), then you can save 20% on your first monthly plan of $29.95 or higher.
It seems like almost every week, someone is changing some price or adding value to a plan with more data, more lines, more minutes, more everything, all for the same low price!
But as the prepaid consumer base grows, I have noticed a divide between the types of plans offered: pay-as-you-go reloadable accounts and prepaid monthly accounts. They are also offering a promotion where you can get your second month of service free when you sign up. Similar how house phones became almost obsolete more than a decade ago, is exactly what is happening to these high priced contracted plans.
The costs associated with smartphones can even be circumvented through selecting prepaid services.
No information on this site may be copied or republished in any medium without express written consent. To get a 20% discount on plans, customers need to enter a coupon code LYCA20 at a checkout.
First, Lycamobile adds new international plan that offers unlimited talk, text and data with first 100 MB at 4G LTE speed, unlimited international texts, unlimited minutes to 11 countries and a $1.50 international call credit, all for $23 per month. The carrier has been sending text messages to customers who are still using the old SIM cards.
A number of Lycamobile customers on Howard Forums are reporting that last few days they are being charged 5 cents per minute on outgoing calls on their old Lyca SIM instead of 2 cents, while rate on incoming calls remained 2 cents per minute.
Obviously, the increase set on February 11, 2015 was a mistake so now, only few days after, the $35 plan includes 2 GB of high speed data instead of 4 GB while $45 plan has 4 GB instead of 6 GB. With a slight delay, customers can now choose from eight new prepaid service plans, four national and four international plans.
Once you know that you qualify, you can then check the phone providers to ensure that you choose one that will meet your needs in terms of service.


This is important because for the next year they will be providing you with the service so you will need to choose the one that best reflects your needs. You’ll need to remember under what eligibility program that you qualified under if it was not income level.
Remember that the government website is not connected to the providers, so any issues that you have need to be taken up with them about your service. Sure, it’s always nice to get the latest gadget, but if you’re going to pay top dollar on a plan, you are going to find yourself in a serious financial crunch overall. However, you will get discount wireless services through the same brands that you may have heard of, but you may not get access to the fastest speeds. Some plans offer unlimited data and text and limited talk time, but at the end of the day you’ll save money with prepaid plans.
In some instances, the deductible for your plan will be more than a new phone, and that’s where you will see how these companies gouge consumers, stay away from insurance on the phones you purchase. Automatic payments can be tricky, if you don’t pay them off right away on a credit card, but they can save you money in the long term. Not only that, you’ll find that the early termination fees on a lot of the contracts are going to be insane. Images,snapshots,and pics often capture a sentiment,a mood,a feeling,or even an idea of a person who's at the center of attention.
And, while entertaining to watch, it hasn’t really changed much in the prepaid industry. While the trend is quickly moving towards the latter, it is still possible to find pay-as-you-go plans without being grandfathered in. 17) seems a little easier to understand than most, which definitely gets them points, and for the first time you can now purchase data at an as-you-go rate.
People leaves these contracts that they’ve been associated with for years and seemingly never look back to those plans ever again. They are informed that they will have to switch to a new Lycamobile SIM in order to continue having Lycamobile service.
Data increase on the $55 plan that went from 5 GB of high speed data to 8 GB, has remained.
On the $45 plan, the carrier increases data from 3 GB of high speed data to 6 GB while the $55 plan goes from 5 GB of high speed data to 8 GB. The change has been reflected on the LycaMobile’s website although, users haven’t been started charged the new rate yet. However, there may be a dozen or more in other states so you might have your work cut out for you. Otherwise, your enrollment will be fairly quick and you should have little problems unless something is not right about the information that you sent. Don’t allow yourself to lose sight of the bigger picture here, make sure that you look into a few ways to reduce your cell phone plan costs, still get good coverage, and stick to the nicer phones that are coming out. The cost can be significantly less however, including drops of 50% or even 75% depending on whom you go with. The drawback here is limited coverage outside of your region, but if you’re not going to need the coverage past your state or region, you may end up saving a big deal of money here. These are good, but you will find that the newest phone offerings don’t always come to this world. Don’t go for this, instead, focus on prepaid, or looking for a month to month option with a fully purchased phone. Throughout the years,pictures has become one of the most popular ways to capture memorable moments. These providers require no contract at all you can switch to any wireless carrier at anytime. The following are additional 6 ways may help you boost your communication, without sacrifice. Companies like Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile for instance run on Sprint’s network, and they offer discounts in this regards. And certainly,for a tantamount of consumer and shoppers you cant put a price tag on family and holiday pics.
Decades after the invention of the first camera, a large number of consumers and shoppers continue to take pics, in a hgh tech fashion.
Instead of the antiquated bulky cameras with huge lenses,consumers and shoppers frequently use SmartPhones and digital cameras to capture images and to take holiday pics. From family gatherings,to family picnics to traditional weddings to the holidays,consumers and shoppers often seize the opportunity at planned events and during the holidays for instance Thanksgiving and Christmas to take pictures of loved ones,family,friends and co workers. Since founding csaccac Inc in 2010, as Founder and President,I fill many hats including Product Tester and photographer. And truthfully speaking,in the beginning I experienced some difficulty;however,after I purchased my first digital camera I began to feel comfortable and enjoy the ease of taking pics with a digital camera.
Months after I purchased my first digital camera,I set my sights on a tripod, a universal stand to hold my digital camera. The main reason I purchased a tripod__ at the time, I wanted to create high quality self pics and group pics.
Eventhough, I've had my tripod for some months,I am still learning the ins and outs of both my digital camera and tripod.
Well,if you havent guessed or envisioned what the featured product for the month of November 2013 looks like or remotely even resembles __then as productor tester I guess I'll do the honors first__it's my tripod. Eventually, I wanted to find out what the craze had been all about and the reason that consumers seemed to ofA  been trading in personal computers for Tablets,_well, at least leaving them at home. Ultimately, I placed online an order for a NookHD+ then opt to pick up the tech item from the store instead of waiting for it to be shipped to my place of residency.
AA  few weeks with the NookHD+, I was hooked_eventhough, IA  wasna€™t a fan of touchscreen only. And in all honesty, since the beginning of the Smart Phone craze, I had insisted upon that all of my primary tech gadgets used for work, research and blogging had to be equipped with a QWERTY keyboard. However, in this particular instance,The NookHD+, again, touchscreen only, I made an exception. As I continued to learn the ins and outs of my newly purchased NookHD+ , at the same time, I began to inquire about the accessories compatible with the tech gadget. In doing so, I foundA  the tech item had a Stylus Pen specifically made to use with the NookHD+. Weeks later, I purchased a different kind of Stylus Pen , I noticed while standing atA  the checkout counter at Walgreens,pictured next to this article is that Stylus Pen. Quite astonishing the Stylus Pen worked wellA  with both of my tech gadgets ( Smart Phone & Tablet). A frequent question a tantamount of consumers and shoppers find themselves entertaining especially during the holidays when manufacturers and retailers offer what they consider to be great deals and bargains.
After giving the device a run for its money as well as a brief critique of the various apps and functions,I stated in my review of the Nook HD+ how pleased I was with the tech gadget. Further into the critique, I also commented that I was soooo pleased with the tech gadget that I wanted to protect my investment. Based on my income and budget,I considered the purchase of the Nook HD+ to be a major purchase of the year. Shortly after, I purchased the Nook HD+,I began to look at the recommended accessories for the tech gadget. Eventually, after I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange 14 day trial period,I chose to protect my investment with a Nook HD+ cover. As I began to search and think of different items that could be the product of the month for September,I began to heavily weigh in on August's product of the month,the Nook HD+cover. Hours later,I arrived to the assertion that there's more than one way to protect your investment.
With the assertion___, there's more than one way to protect your investment, I made the final choice to make Smart Phone covers as the product of the month for September. Furthermore, within the past five years,Ive purchased several Smart Phones from Virgin Mobile.
To be truthful, I've even purchased Smart Phone insurance,a good choice because a few months later my Smart Phone had an accident. Despite all of the stuff I tried, sampled, tasted and tested during the recent months, as a result of a long review and critique besides from featuring the Smart Phone as a product of the month,I began to think of the different ways Ia€™ve used to protect my Smart Phone as an alternative product of the month.


For instance,Smart Phone insurance has been one the ways I protect my investment from unexpected accidents.
Ostensibly, there's more than one way to protect your Smart Phone from accidents such as, for example, you accidentally drop and break your Smart Phone or in some weird, odd, freak accident as you rush out the door you accidentally step on your Smart Phone or heaven forbids the same thing happens to you that happen to me, a few months ago, I dropped my Smart Phone in the toilet. Without a question, eschewing further debate, Smart Phone insurance is a great investment for consumers and shoppers who use their Smart Phone daily and for work.
Best of all, Smart Phone insurance usually saves the consumer from digging deep into their pockets.
So, what about before those mishaps and accidents, if you havena€™t figured it out__ there's more than one way to protect your investment. Even though, at first, I might of skipped over protecting my investments, I am more open to the idea of investing and protecting my major purchases.
Here's an example of what I am talking about, I currently have several Smart Phone covers to protect my Smart Phone from breakage, moisture, and malfunctioning. Varying in price,color,size and shape, most of today's Smart Phone manufacturers and retailers offer to consumers and shoppers Smart Phone covers as an accessory.
From passwords, to anti-theft apps, to screen locks and codes, there's more than one way to protect your investment.
Regardless of the price, and hopefully it is within your budget, a true frugal savvy shopper knows the importance of protecting their investment. Above everything else,both I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange process,quite remarkable,I even have the receipt to prove it. Unlike sooo manyA  items, I ve returned and exchanged in the past,__it,meaning my Nook HD+ survived the fourteenth days as printed on the receipt. A business practice that's part of Barnes and Noble store policy that allows customers fourteen days to return an item.
In short,the 14th day, adhering to store policy was the final day that I couldA  actually return my Nook HD+ and get cash back. It goes without saying ,I readA  the instructions,totally unavoidable with a new tech gadget,as well as,downloaded apps,and,uploaded wallpapers. Not quite sure,on the day I purchased my Nook HD+__ifA  in fact, I would be satisfied with my purchase,I chose at the time not to purchase any kind of accessories. As it turns out,I was soooo pleased with my purchase of the Nook HD+,I wanted to protect my investments. It doesnt matter if you're on lunch break,on a mini vacation,at a webinar or conference,filling out an online report or having to send emails can be a hassle if you don't have a wifi connection,a Broadband device is just one of the many tech gadgets that consumers and shoppers frequently use to get an internet connection. Constantly,on the go,I wanted to have access to wifiA  while away from my place of residency.
Because,I perform an arrary task that frequently requires wifi access ,I purchased a Broadband to Go device from Virgin Mobile. Egregiously,as a Virgin Mobile customer and fan,I live by Virgin Mobile products except in the case of Virgin Mobile wifi devices. Recently,I purchased Virgin Mobile's MiFi 2200 to conciliate my worries about not being able to access wifi home. Aside from very slow internet speed,the device could only connect to one tech gadget and,the 3G USB plug n play stick broke too easily. Affordable,great to have on hand for shopping emergencies,the latest in recycling,a recyclable tote makes shopping less of a hassle. Ditching the old biodegradeable plastic bags for a recyclable tote,it's a smart move and a great investment for frugal,savvy,and environmentally conscious consumers and shoppers.Available in most local chain stores and at grocery stores,recyclable totes are becoming the better choice than leaving stores with the traditional biodegradeable plastic bag. Part of a movement to get consumers and shoppers involved in recycling and to think about going green,consumers and shoppers now have the option of trading in those plastic bags for a recyclable tote.
A frequent shopper,I usually purchase a couple of recyclable totes to hold store purchases and other stuff. Eventhough,I like having the choice to purchase a recyclable tote,I havent completely stop using biodegradeable plastic bags.
However,I have to point out the fact that when a consumer and shoppers purchase a recyclable tote they're not limited to using the tote only in that store,that's why they're called recyclable totes because they can be used more than once. In fact, most recycable totes last for more than a week,I should know because I still have a few leftover from the previous month. A great deal,a really good find,a price you wont find anywhere else,and the best price among competitors,I love a great sale and I love rewards for shopping.
Savings and Rewards,for most consumers and shoppers,it's all about getting the best price for items purchase daily.
From household supplies to groceries,anyone who shops frequently knows consumers and shoppers love a really good sale_,the economic recession of 2008 could be the culprit. In fact,since the 2008 economic recession savings and rewards has become extremely important to American families on a budget. For many American consumers and shoppers,the unexpected downturn of the American economy caused a disruption in their daily activies thus forcing consumer and shoppers to rethink the way they shop and how they shop.
As a frequent shopper and consumer,I am constantly looking for a great deal and sales on items I purchase regularly,mainly because I do live on a strict budget.
Admittedly,after the 2008 economic recession,I rediscovered coupons,and began clipping coupons frequently. In addition to clipping coupons,I also began to check sale ads at home and at the door of stores before shopping. Along with making a shopping list,clipping coupons at home,checking sale ads at the door and comparing prices,these days one of the best ways to save and get the best deals,I feel without a question has to be with a savings and reward card. And speaking honestly, a savings and rewards card from your local chain store should be a consumer or shoppers BF(bestie). A must have for consumers and shoppers who seriously want to save,a savings and rewards card.
Throughout the years, my experience with last minute shopping in most instances was not too pleasant. Admittedly,I empathize as well as concur with consumers who express sentiments that last minute shopping makes the shopper(consumer) feel uncomfortable and forlorn with the just thought of buying a gift at the last minute.
Often tight on funds to purchase a gift ahead of time,last minute shopping for an overwhelmed consumer with a limited budget could cause the consumer to be late and in some instance not to attend the event or special function. Subsequently, over the years, I have come to realize that last minute shopping it's not the best of fun. As a result, I definitely would not recommend last minute shopping to a consumer as a shopping tip.
Unequivocally, shopping for special events and functions such as finding an appropriate could take several visits different stores. Finding the appropriate could mean spending an entire day in a Hallmark store reading cards, it could also mean spending all day on the phone with friend or relatives discussing gift registry,preferences,stores,likes and dislike of the recipient. Ostensibly,the older you get the adults in your life expect two things from you one not to embarrass them in public and two if you don't have a gift to bring at least show up at special functions on time. Indeed, an earnest shopper as well as a meticulous shopper knows finding the right gift or card for a special function could require hours of shopping and visiting different stores. Shopping done precipitously could result in purchasing the wrong size,color, or something way out in left field. Don't wait until the last minute to shop for a party,baby showers,bachelorette bash,birthdays,holidays ,and anniversaries avoid uncomfortableness and the feeling of being inadequate,plan the week before.
On certain days, I have even shopped the day of the event that often leaves me feeling embarrassed ashamed, and guilty about my finances even worse depress. Incontrovertibly,last minute shopping in many instances could causes the consumer to become distraught,exasperated, and disconcerted not surprisingly all the emotions take away from the planned day. What's more important being punctilious for the planned event or arriving with a hand picked gift for the recipient or recipients? Ultimately,the answer remains with the shopper (consumer) The answer should be non bias and based on the event as well as the recipient and not the shoppers wallet . The meticulous consumer that normally keeps track of birthdays, holidays,and anniversaries with calendars,through emails,P DA's ,Smart phones and other tech savvy gadgets of courses would not necessarily share the same feelings of a last minute shopper .
