TracFone is a great option for families who want to stay in touch. They carry the cheapest and easiest cell phone plan in America. You can have a low cost plan with no contracts, no credit check and no activation or cancelation fees either.
There are lots of phones available. So many features are on these phones too! Real TracFone customers show you what they think of using their own TracFone. You can even see this person's review of the Samsung T130 phone:
You will get great nationwide coverage with a TracFone. You can easily pay as you go with their cards available in stores or pay online. They also have a 1 year service card that you can get double minutes on for the life of your phone. Right now you can get 800 minutes for only $119.00. What a great deal.
I think TracFone is a great option for families and kids. With your choices in great phones, and a great way to keep in touch with your kid, this is a great option. You won't have to worry about where there are when they are only a simple phone call away. Go check out stores near you to see what is available.
