  • Personally, I use option 1 and I don't like it

      Ok, if you’ve been thinking about purchasing a GoPhone, then perhaps this review will help you in making your decision. Cingular has two options for prepaid service. 1.

      You can use your phone for 10 cents a minute and get unlimited mobile to mobile. At first, this looks pretty good, but that’s just until you read the fine print which says that each

      day you pick up your phone to call or answer a call, you get charged a dollar.

      So, if you use your phone everyday, that is approximately 30 dollars a month before you add the minutes. Example: If you buy a $50 dollar prepaid card, you get 500 minutes.

      so for this option, you get 500 minutes (or eight and a half hours ...

      • of talk time)for about eighty bucks a month. That’s pretty steep in my opinion.

        2. The simple 25 cents a minute option.

        No dollar a day for using your phone. No mobile to mobile.

        So, you cut out the 30 bucks a month and you purchase a $50 dollar card. You now have 200 minutes, or 3 and a half hours of talk


        Personally, I use option 1 and I don’t like it. Both options seem kinda like a rip-off, but I guess that’s what we get for not being able to plop down the $300 dollar deposit for a annual contract.

        In any case, if you are a big talker, I would probably go with option 1. If you are not going to use your phone much, then go with option 2.
