Summer vacation oftentimes leaves parents looking for an inexpensive alternative to keep in communication with the children. An expensive monthly cell phone bill is not a likely solution. TracFone is one of the least expensive cell phones in America, requiring no contracts, credit checks, activation, and/or cancelation fees. The TracFone is ideal for keeping in touch with kids during the summer months. Why? The pay as you go feature makes it economical while no contract keeps it temporary.
Minutes can be purchased online or via calling cards through numerous retailers across the country. Customers expressed much displeasure concerning added fees associated with competitor’s monthly cell phone plans. This is just not so with the TracFone and customer testimony verifies as such.
TracFone offers several money saving alternatives. To keep service active, add either an airtime card or a no contract monthly plan. A 1-year service card with double minutes for the life of the TracFone, and 800 minutes, costs only $119.00. “Double minutes for the life of your phone” is a feature that can be purchased separately for just $19.99; however, certain phones do include this bonus! Monthly plans are also available with 200 minutes for under $30.00, and as low as $9.99 for 50 minutes.
International calling is no problem with TracFone. Making calls to over 60 international destinations cost the same as local calls. In addition, the International Neighbors program provides family and friends in Mexico or Canada a local phone number in those countries to reach your TracFone in the United States.
While blackberry phones are not available, TracFone offers cell phones from top manufacturers like Motorola, Kyocera, LG, Nokia, and Samsung. Phone styles vary from simple text and call phones for about 10.00 to blue tooth enabled smart phones. As with other cell phones, features such as cameras, video recorders, mp3 players, and full QWERTY keyboards are readily available.
Flexibility, style, and most importantly affordability, the TracFone is a fine solution for parents who need temporary communications and those on a tight, unstable budget.
