  • What kind of phone should I get?

    What kind of cellular phone should I get?

    One of the most common questions for a good reason. Before you can even start trying to answer this question you will need to know who the cellular phone  is for.

    If the cellular phone is for an elderly person you may want to get a simpler cellular phone. Most elderly cellular phone consumers are used to the home wired phones that had a dial tone and then dial the phone they are calling. If you notice that many times before they even use a cellular phone they will put the phone to their ear to see if there is a dial tone.  Even though we find it amusing  its not, its just years more like decades of using the home phone and listening for a dial tone before calling.

    Motorola V551

    For an elderly consumer we would suggest to get a flip calm-shell cellular phone. The clam-shell cellular phone will give the user the ability to flip the phone open to answer and to hang up. When the old home phone was put down it would hang up the phone call and picked up to answer the phone call. The flip cellular phone gives them the closest solution to what they are used to. The will flip to make calls and flip cellular phone to make a call (with bar phones the elderly will have more problems using them). Some of the more like able models with the elderly are the Motorola RAZR V3,  (BUY MOTOROLA V3) Motorola V300, V400, V500, V525, V551,  (BUY MOTOROLA V551)  or LG older flip phones C2000, L1400.  

    If you rather go with a phone that has some more features like memory card slot & MP3 player a good choice will be the Motorola K1 also called the KRZR. (BUY Motorola K1 KRZR)

    The elderly will use the phone to make calls. A very small percentage will use text messaging and almost none will use the internet on a mobile phone.  There are many plans that can work for the elderly and most likely it will be cheaper to use a smaller plan then an unlimited plan.

    Cellular phone carriers with good plans for the elderly will be

    • Virgin mobile
    • Page Plus   – (one of the favorites due to minute plans that will last 120 days)
    • Boost mobile (minute by minute plans – NOT the monthly/daily plans)
    • T-Mobile  (would not be one of our picks – others have better plans)
    • For the low income elderly Assurance Wireless will offer a free cellular phone with 250 free minutes every month.  (THE BEST DEAL FOR AN EMERGENCY PHONE ONLY)
    If the phone you are looking for is for yourself you may want to consider first the carrier that you would like to use. If you use lots of minutes and want to use the web you may want to study some of the new companies that are available.  The price for the cellular phone will be greatly reduced if you choose to sign a 2 year contract. If you decide to go with the prepaid service you will end up paying full price for the mobile phone making the newer models very expensive.
    • Simple mobile – (Prepaid unlimited everything at $40 per month or $50 per month with 4G internet. (using T-Mobile towers) Preferred for prepaid due to better customer service help 
    • H2o – Prepaid unlimited talk (web is not unlimited) (using At&t towers)
    • T-Mobile – Prepaid unlimited everything starts at $50 per month
    • At&t – Prepaid unlimited starts at $60 per month. (web not unlimited)
    For the newer more expensive cellular phones – A 2 year contract may be your best option due to approximately $300 savings in the cost of the phone. Bear in mind that the monthly bill will be higher then prepaid services (carrier will get back the savings you get for the phone during the contract…lol) 
    YOUR FIRST PRIORITY is to check the cellular phone coverage to the destinations you travel to.  Do not forget to check coverage in areas you travel to during other seasons such as a summer home, skiing destinations etc. You may also want to check coverage on the highways you take regularly.
    UNDERSTAND the plan from the cellular phone company. Make sure you know the limits (if there are any) such as text, web and cellular minutes.  If  you go over the extra usage will be ridiculously priced!!!
    If you are a heavy user, compare the price – if unlimited is not much more of a difference go with it.

  • Cellular phone trouble shooting

    Cellular phone trouble shooting:

    With experience with cellular phones since the beginning  of the 1990′s. These are some of the most common problems with cellular phones from the day of purchase .

    I just purchased this phone and it does not power on.

    • When purchasing a new cellular phone you should have inside the box (this is the minimum) - Cellular phone, battery, battery cover (some models have the battery as its cover), house charger.
    • Make sure you put battery inside the cellular phone correctly. Look for the contacts on the battery and match them to the battery contacts on the cellular phone (contacts are usually a golden color connection). Make sure battery is in place, usually it will snap into place and will not move. If battery feels loose – Battery is NOT installed correctly. Once you have made sure the battery is installed correctly. Try to put the phone power on.  Usually you will be pressing the red button (also used to hang up the phone) for about 5 seconds and power should go on
    • NO POWER – locate the wall charger (travel charger) and plug it in. If this is the first charge for this battery you must be prepared to let the phone charge fully (overnight charge – 6 hours – a must for new battery).
    • At this time your phone may take a few minutes to turn on.
    •  If no power at this time – you should try to move the cellular phone to another power outlet that you know is working.
    • At this point you have tried everything possible.
    • If cellular phone does not turn on at this time. Take phone back to dealer and have them check & eventually exchange either the battery or the phone.
    If your cellular phone falls and does not power on.
    • Most likely the battery came out of its slot. Try removing battery and reinserting it again in the phone.

     No power

    • Try charging. 
    • If phone does not accept a charge (not showing any display at all). Try a different outlet. If you have a car charge, try to see if there is power showing when using the car plug.
    • When there is no power on the phone and does not show any signs of charging when plugged to outlet. Most likely the charger is the problem and not the battery.

    Charging the battery and phone dies as soon as I unplug the phone.

    • Most likely its the battery.  Try getting a replacement battery
    • If you have a cellular phone store near by, they may be able to test the new battery in your phone before you buy the battery.
    • NOTE: batteries are usually sold new but can not be returned for exchange or refund.  If you are not sure that the battery is the problem, try to get it locally (even if its a bit more expensive) and make sure it works before you buy.


  • AT&T HTC HD7-S


     UP TO 32GB 16 GB STORAGE built in WI-FI 3G 5MP 

    The HTC HD7 price adjusted to becoming an affordable phone. When the HD7 cellular phone was first introduced to the market the price was topping $500 which was way too expensive for the average user. Thankfully the price declined to a more reasonable range of about $300 – $350 retail without a contract or unlocked and as low as $50 with a 2 year contract at At&t.

    The HTC D7 Windows phone was the highlight of cellular phones when it originally came out in the summer of 2011 and is still a good looking cellular phone compared to new cellular phones in the market today. Featuring 3G for faster internet and a 5MP camera with a beautiful large screen. The size of the phone is really big at 4.8 x 2.68 x 0.44 inches due to its large screen. Slim enough to slip in pants pocket – always beware to have the keys in another pocket to avoid scratching the screen.  Affordable finally, lots of feature and looks great.

    The 3G network keeps internet and applications  running at good speed. This is the biggest change in this model.

Overall the Blackberry BOLD is a very good cellular phone with good features.
