Getting a U.S. Cell Phone – Part 2 of 2

It didn’t make sense NOT to take that plan.  Their cheapest phone was a nice and simple little Samsung for $30!  So I got a new phone and didn’t have to worry about my older unlocked clunker.  After I signed up I got a message that they added an extra $15 to my prepayment as a bonus!

For long distance calls, which are most of what we make, we use the easy Skype-to-go numbers.  You can register your cell phone numbers with your Skype account and then get access numbers with local area codes to access the Skype service without using the internet.  Costs about $0.02 per minute.  Because I get unlimited calling throughout the U.S., I only need one U.S. access number to make my long distance calls and the call quality is very good.  I found that duplexing was not great whether or not I was using Skype or regular AT&T service.
