I’m switching to http://qwertcorp.com/ for mobile service. It’s a text only carrier who has two plans, 400 messages for $9.99 or unlimited messages for $19.99. I think I will stay well under the lower plan. Switching our two phones, my wife’s and mine, will save us about $540/yr. Not too shabby. We still have magicjack (which is also super cheap) for the house when we want to talk. Of course I still have the google voice number, 586-S4L0M0N (586-745-0606). The only down side is if we have a baby sitter with no cell phone to text us. For that situation I’ll have to leave one pc unlocked for sending e-mails to our cell phones. I can just create a @kingsalomon.net account and a login for gmail to use the pop server. Once I do that, we’re covered. Oh, the carrier for Qwert is T-Mobile so the coverage is good.
This idea was inspired by reading Early Retirement Extreme. I’m half way through this book and love it!!
