Get Help Selecting a Cell Phone Plan from Wirefly

Sponsored Post

Ever since I first stumbled upon Wirefly, I've been increasingly amazed at the services and deals it offers. You can get great deals on cell phone plans, phones, and accessories. But their service doesn't stop there.

If you want to save money off your current cellular plan, Wirefly can help you out with their plan wizard. It's a really simple concept. First, enter your zip code. Then enter your current carrier, phone number, and typical usage information.

Wirefly will then tell you what other plan or carrier might save you money. Their advertising claims that you can actually save up to 40% off your current phone plan. To me, that's some serious money. It's even bigger money, when you realize that a lot of people are paying $75-100 monthly for their cell phone service.

The concept behind this service really makes sense. It's in your best interest to have a cellular plan tailored to your actual calling needs. Wirefly is using their database of calling plans and a simple computer program to determine if they can do better for you. That's pretty cool.

The difficult part, in my opinion, is that most people's cell phone usage varies over time. Thus, one plan might be great for you this month, but it might be really bad for you two months from now. Since we all know you can't just switch carriers every two months, you really have to stick with a plan for a while.

In the end, I suppose you could see calling trends over a few months and then use Wirefly's plan wizard. This would give you a better view of your needs and hopefully save yourself some money.

I don't know about you, but when it's time for my next cell phone, I'm probably heading to Wirefly. It's at least a great place to research plans and prices.
