These days, folks are watching every penny. And when it comes to mobile phones, it’s usually not the initial hardware cost that hurts the most. It’s that recurring bill for the next 24 months that hits the wallet. To help minimize that expense while also getting the services you need, you could hit up every carrier and wade through their offerings. Or you could just hit BillShrink and have them tell you which plans will best meet your needs — and your budget.
With BillShrink, you just pick the terms and services you’re looking for on a monthly basis: voice minutes, data and messaging needs. Enter your zip code and provide an email address to get your results. It’s that simple. If you want be really lazy, you don’t even need to enter the data. Instead, you can authorize BillShrink to gain access to your wireless account records online.
The free service looks fairly useful and it just ran a little comparison between the upcoming MyTouch 3G, Palm Pre and iPhone 3GS with these results:
- MyTouch 3G: $1998 – 1000 minutes/month + unlimited data and messaging
- Palm Pre: $2359 – 900 minutes/month + unlimited data and messaging
- iPhone 3G S: $2839 – 900 minutes/month + unlimited data and messaging
There’s a vast difference between the total cost of those three devices. Not that I didn’t know that before, but it’s a good example of where a service like BillShrink can come in handy.
