FREE Cell Phone Plans
With a newer version of calling via a wireless network on land lines, cell plans are now offering a similar way to use your smart phone. And by using wifi, it’s FREE. It relies on Wi-Fi connections rather than cell phone towers. FreedomPop and Scratch Wireless offer a basic package that costs nothing. Republic Wireless charges $5 a month for wifi only mobile service; and Google recently debuted Project Fi for $20 a month. These plans include, or you can add at an additional cost, traditional cellular service as a backup for times when you’re not in a wifi zone.
Does a plan like this make sense to you? It depends on your proximity to wifi on a regular basis and the backup carrier’s coverage in your areas. Each service is customizable, so dig for a plan that works for you.
