Free US Cell Phones
Written by Joel
As part of our series, “How To Make Money From Your Blog” we will be discussing getting paid for blogging. One of the sites we will soon talk about is ReviewMe where advertisers choose which blogs review them. So you have to submit your site and then wait for the review offers to come to you.
In that vein Wirefly have asked us to review their website and are paying us for doing so. However there is no requirement that the review is positive, so let’s take a look.
Wirefly claim to be the Internet’s largest retailer of cellular phones and the number 1 agent for Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint, Cingular and some other wireless companies such as Disney.
Compared to some of the UK’s mobile websites, Wirefly seems easier to navigate. Some simple search links on the top left allow you to search by Carrier (e.g. Verizon Wireless, Cingular T-Mobile, Sprint), Phone (e.g. Motorola, Samsung, Sony- Ericsson, Sanyo) or Service Plan. If searching by carrier, after entering your zip code you receive a list of the available carriers and a series of ratings. The ratings are for Wirefly Market Coverage (out of 6), Cost & Service Plan options, and Customer Care (both out of 5, rated by JD Power) which is a nice feature. It is then easy to compare individual (or shared) plans against each other.
As with all websites relating to mobile/cell phones, there is a bewildering array of phones, plans and tariffs, but the rating system does help filter some of the options to a more manageable level.
Individual, shared/family plans are all available online as well as pre-paid phones. They provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee and free 2-day FedEx shipping. Finally, similar to other mobile/cell phone service providers, there is also an Accessories store, and ringtones to download via another site.
As well as making stock available on their own website, they also have an eBay store, with a damn fine feedback score.
So if you’re in the US and need a new mobile then why not take a look at Wirefly? As I’m not in the US and can’t personally recommend then, please let me know if you’ve had any experience with them in the comments section below.
