I have heard all the reasons on why you still DO NOT own a smartphone: its too complicated, too "techy" and too expensive. Let me assure you, although valid points in the past, today's smartphones are rapidly becoming the only choice for less tech driven customers like you, seeking to save money on everyday items. (Click title for more)

Lets start with "downloading apps". "Apps" or applications are basically easy to use software programs with pictures that transforms your phone into your newest 'pal' that knows just about everything! Just imagine going into your favorite restaurant and paying 1/2 of the menu price and ordering for your kids to learn that they will eat for free... ... or going to the grocery store and getting .66 cents off every 1.00 dollar you spend on items placed inside your shopping cart.

What about driving anywhere in town and never getting loss, avoiding traffic and finding the least expensive gas station to fill up on gas. Gifts, don't even go there! Now, when you are at the mall, give your phone to the cashier so he or she can knock 50% off of your total bill! Most importantly, JOBS! Just imagine getting a pop up on your phone telling you your favorite company is looking to hire someone with your background for immediate consideration... ... and the job pays $10000.00 more than you ever made in your work career!

Listen, I could go on, but this blog would never end. Trust me, there are over 100,000 'app' examples I can tell you about, but if you never consider getting this "smart" pal, then this will have no relevance. If your are considering this, then listen close, these phones are now very affordable for anyone's budget! Now, in the past these phones would run you about $399 bucks to own and you would need to sign a contract, agreeing to pay $75/month for 2 years. Not anymore! Today, these newer phones are priced less than $200 bucks and get this, with no contracts to sign and high monthly fees to pay. (I found one carrier Republic Wireless that charges $19.00 per month and are getting great reviews).

So, research and rethink how you are using your current phone. If your phone is not saving your money, then ask your phone, "Why are we still 'pals' if your not gonna help me stay 'smart' and save money?"
