Used to have a Tracfone flip phone until last summer. Then I inherited a smart Tracfone my mother didn’t need when she got her iPhone. Now I’m in search of a new phone. I promised my girlfriend that when I got a promotion to a Grade 18 at my department, I’d finally buy a legitimate phone. Well, Thursday I started the new job and my smart Tracfone is getting wonkier and less responsive by the day.
So… I’m wondering what you all have and recommend.
She has a Galaxy 7s. My brother has a Galaxy Note 2. Several relatives have iPhones of varying degrees. Most naturally assume I’m going to get an iPhone because I’m an Apple guy for computers, but I don’t stream anything through cloud accounts, so it really doesn’t mean much to have one or another.
My mother and several aunts are on a Verizon family plan, which I could buy into to lower the price all around. Or I could do something like my girlfriend, who uses Straight Talk through Walmart, and generally saves $30 or so a month over what my relatives pay for the family plan.
