Some of you have been asking me if I still like my Unlimited Mobile service through Walmart and the short answer is, YES! Just last month my “other” phone service lost $109.00 from me. I am still in the process of switching everyone over and the funny thing is, I never heard from cell phone provider, ever. Then once I started dropping lines, they started calling. They wanted to offer me deals and one of the service people even said “Yes, we are expensive but we have the best coverage.” I was honest and told them I had switched to Walmart and got basically the same coverage, without the huge price tag. Also, they don’t eat my data the way this carrier does, forcing me to buy more. I have two people using the service and we barely touch 1 gb and I use mine constantly for blogging.
All the money I saved help fund this day trip to the Amish Country in PA. The girls had so much fun seeing the farms, the horse drawn buggies, all the fresh fruits and veggies at stand markets and we even had lunch out. It was really neat watching their face as I explained the honor system. They couldn’t believe the Amish would leave out a tin and trust people would pay for the items. It is definitely a different world. I am so happy that I am saving money on my phone plan. We need the cell phones and sometimes I feel like I am robbing Peter to pay Paul to keep them.
One of the possible cons is that you do have to purchase a phone that works on the plan. I went to Walmart the other day and was pleasantly surprised to find the Concord was rolled back to $49.99. That is $30.00 less than what I paid for it. It is a great little phone, Avery loves it. I do too and I am going to get it for myself because I really don’t like my My-Touch. Even though you have to purchase a phone and the starter kit, the savings each month makes it worth. A $100 + is not chump change. I am so happy I had the chance to test drive the service and as long as Walmart keeps great service, they have a customer for as long I need a cell phone.
