Saving money on cell service: TextNow

Boot Camp feature for Friday, December 25, 2015

Now that you’ve spent so much on the holidays…how to save money on cell service.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Mobile phone service doesn’t have to break the bank…or tie you to a contract these days.   There are many options for saving depending on what your needs are.   One option is a service called TextNow Wireless…where monthly service starts at just 18.99.    It even offers one smartphone for free.   Besides that, CEO Derek Ting says…

“One of the awesome things that we also do is you can use your phone number across mobile devices.   So you can use it on your tablet, a computer or your phone.   So let’s say you forget your phone, while you’re online on your Web browser, you can text and call for free.”

In fact,  TextNow offers WiFi only service for free….that you can use with any kind of connected device…including a Kindle.   There’s more at TextNow.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
