Re: Re: 911 Emergency Cell Phones


    There is now a FRUGAL LIFE web site giving info on this.
    We just signed up with TRAC PHONE, which is what is
    recommended by several.

    Now, this phone is what we’ll use for EMERGENCIES only.
    We will NOT call relatives to see how they are doing, etc.
    We will have to buy minutes every 60 days or lose them,
    but this figures out at $9 a month if you buy 30 minutes
    at $17.98 for 2 months. If you can NOT afford $9 a month
    then you do NOT need one of these phones! We bought a
    reconditioned USED phone for $24.95. We paid extra for a
    car charger, in case we forgot to recharge. With tax it
    wound up costing about $42.

    That’s high you say?  :o   What if you, your husband or
    child breaks down out on the road with nobody near?
    What is THEIR life worth to you? My daughter regularly
    travels a long distance to work. She has AAA, but it’s no
    good if she hasn’t a phone! She will keep this phone in her handbag for emergencies.

    Also, in our area, radio stations regularly give away prizes
    if you call in at a certain time. We always miss out because we only listen to our radio in the car. We MIGHT
    win something.
