Don’t need the Internet on your phone? Just looking to talk and text while not paying for a bunch of extras that you won’t use? Well there are options available to suit those needs! PayLo by Virgin Mobile and Tracfone both offer great no-contract cell phone services that are built around talk and texting. They both offer low rates and a variety of devices to match what you want in a phone!
PayLo by Virgin Mobile is powered by Sprint’s network. They have three major plans to choose from depending on how much you will want to talk or text during your month. Plans start off at $40 per month, which will give you unlimited talk and unlimited texting. If you don’t need all of that, they do also offer $30 per month and $20 per month plans. The $30 plan gives you 1500 talk minutes and 1500 texts, while the $20 per month package lets you talk for 400 minutes and then each text message is 15 cents.
PayLo’s phones also come in several options from the basic flip-phone to slide-out keyboard devices to phones with full QWERTY keyboards on the front. Take a look at their newest device, the Kyocera Brio, which features Bluetooth for hands free-talking or file sharing, 2.5” color display, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. This device and others from PayLo are really affordable and will give you great features to get the job done.
Another major no-contract carrier is Tracfone. Tracfone offers several plans that are sure to meet your needs. If you don’t want to worry about adding minutes to your phone every month, Tracfone will take care of you with an option to let you keep your minutes for up to a full year! Plus, with most new Tracfone devices they will double your minutes. For example, if you purchased a 60-minute phone card, Tracfone will double it to give you 120 minutes!
There are also device options to make using your phone easy, from slide-out keyboard phones to basic flip-phones and even a phone that gives you large numbers so you can see and hit the right button. They also have a full touch screen phone from LG. The LG 840G features a 3.2” color touch screen, 2.0 megapixel camera with video recorder, and a hands-free speakerphone.
For mobile phone plans and devices that will give you only what you need without a lot of extras, look to PayLo and Tracfone to take care of you. They both offer great low cost service with low cost devices. Even better, Best Buy Mobile can activate and set up these devices for you so you don’t have to worry about it!
