How to work around cell phone providers (Boxden let's upgrade our hustle and pimp papers)
 

 
Ok, so I see alot of people that are getting screwed over by cell phone providers and are tired of paying large bills, so I'm making this for my fellow BX bros and sisters out there *DISCLAIMER* The information or techniques I present might not be the best for yourself, situation or might be plain dumb to you...if so, please provide your own ways down below or if these are good in anyway, spread the love to other people and people in real life(friends, classmates, family, co workers)...let's sh-t on cell phone providers

So the first thing you have to do is think, think real hard...think about how you will use your phone, how many times you text, how many times you call or are called by people, how many facebook, twitter, google+, emails you do.......if the answer is not as much or not as frequent, then a lower tier phone plan is the best for yourself......

Picking the right cell phone: DON'T DO CONTRACT!!!!!!!!! DO NOT WALK INTO A STORE OR BUY ONE ONLINE!!!!!!!! DO NOT SIGN UP FOR CONTRACT!!!!! I had to capatizle that to express that getting contract phone service is modern slavery(that might be a bad analogy) but bottom line don't do it, instead get a off contract phone(which most times are unlocked, however some off contract phones are still locked to a particular carrier, beware and read the fine print)

Places to get off contract phone? Best place to me is Amazon Wireless since it's normally a decent price, good sellers with good histories and one stop store so you can view numerous phones across providers...however there are plenty of great phone resell stores other than Amazon, here's a few off the dome....

Let's get it in with a carrier: Now this part is long because I have to explain that I use Google Voice and my cell plan. I don't have a data plan nor text plan on my phone. I use a 25 dollar prepaid plan that last 90 days from AT&T, you might call me crazy but my home, work, school, friends apartments, favorite bars and restaurants that I frequent often have wifi that I use. Altogether 80-85% of my time is spent in these areas and I personally use Google Voice which I use for texts and give my number to girls, so they don't blow up my actual phone number(Search Google Voice if you have no idea what it is), so if you are in the same boat as me, as simple prepaid plan is good enough for yourself *DISCLAIMER* My current phone also has GPS in it, so I don't need data to navigate .....choose one below:

if you need the data or texts, remember to think hard if you have wifi near you to use google voice or services like it and then choose the best plan for yourself but also...get the cheapest one with the most bang for your buck. Don't try to be a baller and get unlimited if you don't use phone service much

****If you have a phone and want to unlock it? Check out XDA, they are pretty good and can offer unlocks for most phones, however, you could also buy unlocked codes from ebay, just type in your phone and it typically cost between a dollar to 10 bucks tops, in my most cases****

Good sh*t on this thread, I thought about starting a thread like this myself because I was researching prepaid carriers and plans heavy when I was getting rid of my att contract. I'm on my phone now but I'll try to remember to add to this later.

I posted this in the other thread but I don't know if everyone saw it but sells prepaid cards for most carriers with no tax

This is exactly what ive beeen doing since 2004. The last contract i ever had was a sprint lg flip phone that i only paid 29.99 a month for 350 anytime minutes, free nights and weekends, 400 text messages, free long distance. Yea by todays standards that plan sucks d!ck. But after having numerous prepaid phones since, this is my new hustle.

First, recently i signed up to boost mobile, this was in 2009 after ditching verizon gay a.ss prepaid at the time. Got me a Blackberry 8330 with unlimited everything for 60 a month. Fast forward to 2011, still got that same plan with something called shrinkage for boost mobile which reduce your monthly payment 5 dollars for every 6 on-time reups, im at 50 now with a newer blackberry 8530.

Then I got me an htc evo 4G off craigslist for 120 dollars, esn was bad but i had been reading you can flash a sh*tload of these sprint phones to prepaid providers like metro and boost. i kept the phone off but modded the sh*t out of it, got a slim extended battery for it and nice case. Two months ago i got in contact with a dude off craigslist said he can flash this phone to any verizon plan, i said bullsh*t theres no way. Long story short i gave the dude remote access and he flashed my phone to verizon. i chose the new verizon prepaid thing they got its either 50 a month for unlimited everything or 1.99 a day for unlimited talk and 1 dollar a day for unlimited 3g and i only get charged on the days i use it, i chose the second one. I now use the evo mainly for internet when im not on wifi and it works great. I throw about 15 bux a month on it and use it for whatever.

So now, two prepaid phones, blackberry and android. pay about 65-70 a month and i can switch these phones as i please but im happy with them. might soon upgrade the evo to a samsung galaxy s2 and flash it. The evo is worth about 250 now since i flashed it to verizon. Dont be dumb and get a contract, that sh*t is r*pe. trust me.

I just reup'd my 2yr contract with tmobile last year. I'm paying $80. My mother has the same phone but she went through the walmart family plan...shes paying $50 for everything. I went tmobile to see if i can swith but they said that the walmrt plan is separate from tmobile even though it's tmobile...so I would have to pay the ETA if I wanted to switch..What do you suggest? I'm close to paying the ETA because if you think about it...I'm getting r*ped.

Dumb statement.

Save money where you can ALWAYS! Thats why america is in the sh*tter now. People paying for over priced things that the seller makes them BELIEVE is worth it. (1000 dollar mac books etc.)

Budget and save and this is a start, Props T/S


*Side Note*
Also don't get in a cable contract either (Just get internet service) Premium hulu and nexflix is alot better! I'm saving a lot of money right now running both of those off my PS3

Edit: I skimmed this. Seen sh*t like this a few times on BX. Can't knock your hustle but I'll stick with my plan.

My iphone is on at&t prepaid. $25 a month 250 minutes & unlimited text, perfect for me because I never talk on the phone. The best prepaid around is with T-Mobile though, they have 1500 split between text & talk for $25 and you can get 10% off the prepaid card from calling mart which actually saves you about a month off of your cost.
