Looking for an emergency phone
(South Attleboro, MA USA)
I had one the STI mobile phones from Cumberland Farms about 12 years ago. we made about 10 to 15 minutes of calls per month. The cards cost $20.00 and we had to buy one every 3 months to avoid the re-activation fee.
I qualified for the absolutely free Safe Link phone which I got and let the STI phone go inactive. When my wife began collecting Social Security our household income put us above the qualification level for SafeLink.
I am now looking for the cheapest cell phone which I can get and make probably less than an hour per month of calls on. Texting might be a plus but internet service I would not consider to be important.
I had considered Tracfone a while back and it seemed to be just a little more then the $10.00 3 months minimum. It was $10 for 2 months minimum.
I did not see any minimums on the plans so I will have to go back to see if they are something that I can figure out.
