Frequently Asked Question
While many people still use their phone plan’s voice minutes and texts, an increasing number of people are leaving behind these two seemingly archaic communication options in favor of Internet-based communications. Most of the major messaging apps (KuboIM) support free voice and video calls between users, for example, and those times you have to call someone you’re not connected to via a messaging app can be done with something like Skype. It seems few people realize that data-only phone plans are an option.
If you're hellbent on saving money on your wireless plan, then you have to get away from the Big Four carriers (T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon). Smaller carriers like (Ting, Tello, and US Mobile), called mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) or alternative carriers, lease coverage from the larger networks and resell it for less.
