Cell phones are simply a necessity of life. My kids have phones, their grandmother has a phone. We all have phones. They have become so ingrained in our lives that if we leave a phone behind we will stop, turn the car around, and go back to grab the phone. And of course, behind every great phone is great wireless coverage. I am so happy to partner with Megan Media and Cricket Wireless and share with you the top 5 reasons I love my cell phone.
5 Reasons to Love Your Cell Phone
Peace of Mind
With a cell phone, you can always check in on your kids if they are at home alone after school or out with friends. If you have a cell phone with GPS (and most do these days), you can find your way no matter where you are going, and you can call for help in an emergency wherever you are!
Your Office at Your Fingertips
Keep your clients happy while you’re away from the office by keeping track of your emails and phone calls. You can answer emails on the train and get back to clients immediately, or join meetings from the road. You can also check your schedule, take notes, and plan appointments.
Never Miss a Photo Opportunity
Life always brings us unexpected moments. Never miss a funny, beautiful, or unexpected shot again. You can also snap photos of recipe ingredients before you head to the grocery store, or record meeting notes on a whiteboard to review later. From the most basic phone to top of the line — these days they all include a camera.
Entertainment, Music, and More
If you are like me, your phone is your source of music, audiobooks, and podcasts. You can stream your favorite music, listen to a book, or catch up on a news program. Or maybe you love to play Words With Friends or Candy Crush?
Keep in Touch
Cell phones make keeping in touch easier than ever – especially with no long distance fees attached in the U.S. It’s easy to check social media, update contacts, or just see what’s happening with your friends via text message whenever you can.
Now that we’ve established that a cell phone is essential, does that mean that cell service has to be confusing and expensive? The answer is no! This is why I’m honored to have been hand selected as part of the Cricket Wireless blogging program, so I can tell you all about this great wireless service.
Cricket Wireless is no-nonsense, affordable cell phone service. With Cricket, you are going to know exactly what your bill is going to look like every month. So if you are tired of trying to figure out all the fees that come with your current wireless provider, check out Cricket’s transparent and affordable pricing. I am so glad they are bringing simplicity to what can be a confusing process. Ease in cell phone plans and pricing — go figure.
Cricket has no annual contracts, no phone contracts and unlike other service providers (like T-Mobile), monthly taxes and fees are included in the monthly plan pricing – No surprises when you get your bill. Want to save even more? Bring your family and friends and as a group you could save up to $100 per month by adding eligible lines to your account.
Check out their NEW Unlimited Plan and choose from their brand name phones or you may be eligible to bring your own in. The unlimited plan includes unlimited talk, text, and high-speed DATA for $65 a month, after $5 auto pay credit.* *First mo. $70. $5 credit applied upon enrollment in auto pay. Additional fees and restrictions apply. See offer details.
Are you a current T-Mobile customer? For a limited time, bring your T-Mobile number to Cricket, and you’ll get a $100 bill credit.** This is another great reason to hop on over to Cricket and #SwitchForSmiles.
**This is a limited time offer and requires porting number & two qualified plan (min. $40/mo.) service payments within 45 days. Credit will be received within 60 days. Charges and restrictions apply. See offer details.
If this all sounds good to you, make the switch to Cricket Wireless, and I guarantee you will love your cell phone even more than you already do!
