January 2015  new!

For the second year in a row, the phone company to beat
is Republic Wireless. Find a better deal out there? Please let us know about it....

Take a look at Republic Wireless Plans from $5 to $40 a month

No doubt, still the best value in wireless.

w do they do it?
Republic Wireless. utilizes the newest smartphone technology (hybrid calling) by using both cellular & wifi networks to bring down the cost of making a phone call.  When you are talking on the phone, the phone automatically routes the call over wifi or a celluar network. So whenever wifi is around, your phone might use wifi to carry the call and thus lower the cost. The end result is that the savings are passed down to the consumer.

Other Wireless Values:

GIV Mobile - We like GIV Mobile. They give 8% of the customers monthly phone bill to charity. They allow you to choose up to 3 charities.or non-profit organizations and will give 8% of your monthly payment to the organization you've chosen. We think GIV Mobile provides a substantial value to the consumer. Their unlimited plans start at $20 a month. The fact that GIV Mobile is giving back and trying to make a positive changes in the lives of the less fortunate makes this wireless service a winner in our book.
GIV Mobile - Unlimited Plans,  8% goes to charity

We also like a company called Straight Talk Wireless
they have prepaid phones, smartphones and unlimited
mobile plans from $45 month. Straight Talk has all of
the popular phones ie. iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy
S4 and has coverage nationwide.

Wireless Deals - January 2014 News Alert
from Hot Buy Now this week

Instead of telling you this phone plan is better than that one.... or this smartphone does more than that one.....   and Blah - Blah - Blah...  We'll give you the facts and let you decide which service plan and phone meets your needs. We assume you know your calling needs best. You might be thinking... It's 2014, I'd like to change my phone service and try to lower my phone bills. I am sick and tired of paying over $50 bucks a month for phone service....  and sick and tired of being in a  bleep contract.

Well, keep reading... We think the following phone plans can help you do just that.

Here are cheap wireless plans that provide a substantial savings and are great alternatives to the Big carriers ie.At&t  How much can you save? Well, it depends on your calling and data usage patterns. We posted what we believe are currently the cheapest calling plans and best wireless values in America (we update daily so stay tuned to us for the latest in wireless). You can change your carrier, start new service or simply switch your existing service. You're in the driver's seat.  Please choose a plan that fits your calling needs best (not one just because we recommended it).

This week we checked out the new Motoroloa Defy and Moto X smartphones since they both happen to work on what we believe happens to be the cheapest wireless calling plan in America. These smartphones and plans are worth mentioning. When you buy one of  these smartphones,  you can choose a cheap wireless plan that gives you unlimited minutes,  data, text and web from $5 - $40 a month (the cheapest plan is $5 a month plan for light use....  or choose a plan up to $40 a month for 4G + high data use). We don't like contracts and these cheap wireless plans let you sign up and try out the service without a contract. We also might mention that they let you cancel anytime without a penalty. Keep in mind that if you sign up for the super cheap $5 dollar monthly plan there are some limitations and usage restrictions (see below to learn more).  How it works:  Buy a $99 Motorola Defy Smartphone (or Moto X $299) and then pay each month for your plan with no credit check or contract You can choose a monthly calling plan from $5 - $40 a month.

How do they do it? These wireless plans utilizes the newest smartphone technology (hybrid calling) by using both cellular & wifi networks to bring down the cost of making a phone call.  When you are talking on the phone, the phone automatically routes the call over wifi or a celluar network. So whenever wifi is around, your phone might use wifi to carry the call and thus lower the cost. The end result is that the savings are passed down to the consumer.
