Free Phones

So, well, I got a cheap free phone from Cingular because my family has been with them so long. I guess that the phone is alright. There is nothing special to it, just made for calling people, and to send text messages bascially.

It is the C1300i from LG.

Yeah, usually phones are usually standard, nothing amazing. Barring gifts, I really don't like how you have to sign for such a long term with the free phones, but I guess it covers the price.

I've always thought the free phones were basically junk. So, I usually end up dropping some cash on something better. Maybe I'm a little bit spoiled.

I just got a new phone, paid $29.99 for it and still have a three year contract with it. The contract would only be lowered if I dished out more money for a phone. No thanks. I have had a few phone in the past and I agree the quality isn't that great. I ended up replacing it shortly after.

Free is good!! I like free, it's right in my price range. But really, I've had new free phones with every plan I've had and they've never been really bad. I have no complaints. Most companies give you a phone just to get you as a customer.

There are a lot of free services in my country, the Philippines. Not to mention that my country is the texting capital of the world. You can get a free phone, of good quality, when your contract is for 3-5 years. For average phones, at least 1-2 years.

We have here many free services, we call them unlimited service. For example, register for an unlimited call service of about 100 pesos($2), and for one week you can call all your friends with the same network for a week, no more additional call charges.
