These days almost everyone has a cell phone, even kids. There are plenty of cell phone companies to choose from, each company having different plans and different phones. I have tried a few of them over the years and I have to say that my company of choice is Boost Mobile.
The very first company I went with was Verizon, which has to be one of my least favorites. Not only do they have over-priced plans, but I honestly think that they add minutes that you didn’t use. One month my bill was $500 because they said that I went way over my minutes. So the next month, I made sure that I made most of my calls on nights and weekends and I was positive that I stayed within my limits. When my bill came it was almost $500 again. I cancelled my service after that.
The next company I tried was Sprint. Really the only problem I had with Sprint was that the plans were way overpriced. I was paying a little over $100 a month. The good thing about Sprint was that I always had really good reception and never had any dropped calls. But my bills were just too high, so I cancelled my service.
The absolute worst cell phone company I tried was Tracfone. Besides having horrible phones, it ends up costing an arm and a leg for minutes. You have to buy re-loadable cards with minutes, and any portion of a minute that you use counts as a whole minute. I guess this kind of phone would be good if you are a criminal tries to use a throwaway cell phone for some shady business. Otherwise I wouldn’t recommend it.
About ten years ago, I signed up with Boost Mobile, and since then, I have never found a reason to switch. I love Boost Mobile. You do have to buy the phone, but they have a pretty good variety of phones with prices ranging from $30 for a basic cheap one to $500 for a top of the line Android. I love the fact that my bill is really inexpensive and it never changes. I pay $40 a month for unlimited talk, text and web. Boost Mobile is part of the Sprint network, so I have never had any problem with reception, even out in the desert. Plus, any time I have ever had to call customer service for anything, they have been extremely helpful and very nice. I definitely would recommend Boost Mobile for anyone looking for a new cell phone company.
