There’s an unserved market of cellphone customers at this time: these of us who would really like the profit from the web based mostly apps of a sensible telephone, through Wifi, with out paying the price of an pointless (to us) 3G contract.
In any case, Wifi is taking on the world! These of us on budgets, or who can resolve to unplug ourselves from Fb when outdoors hotspots, could want to restrict our cellphone web use to once we are in Wifi hotspots, and pocket the contract financial savings.
However as a fast Google search will reveal, there are usually not a whole lot of clear lower solutions on easy methods to get Wifi options with out the 3G contracts. I’ve googled “good telephone Wifi no service contract” dozens of occasions.
In my looking out I’ve discovered no firm brazenly providing a sensible telephone, with Wifi functionality, that can give you a chat (and maybe textual content plan) with out a knowledge package deal, the place the Wifi is left accessible. If I missed it, be at liberty to hyperlink us in that corporations course within the remark part. I did, nevertheless, discover ONE firm providing a terrific various to the information plan problem. See the be aware on the backside.
After a lot looking out and taking a small likelihood I’ve discovered another that pleases me. I’ve turned my new Virgin Cellular Optimus V telephone right into a Wifi succesful system with calling capabilities over Wifi.
First, out of the field the Optimus V was Wifi succesful, with out service. The telephone prompted me to energetic, however I simply started to tinker as a substitute. No drawback. I went to settings, to wi-fi to community and arrange my dwelling Wifi connection.
I additionally downloaded an app referred to as KeepWifi that retains me related to Digital Wifi even when my telephone goes into sleep mode. It alerts each time I get a brand new message on my Gmail or Yahoo account. I like it!

So there are limits with this good telephone choice I’m presenting. You’ll seemingly nonetheless need to have some degree of telephone service (landline or cell) with one other supplier, significantly if you would like a cell phone.
I’ve a small however very low-cost pay as you go plan on an entry degree Virgin Cell phone, in order that covers me within the uncommon place the place I’m not close to a landline or at a hotspot. I selected to not port my quantity from Virgin Cellular to Google Speak (which you are able to do), as I want to maintain my fundamental quantity (which I’ve had for years) transportable.
If I ever selected to get a sensible telephone plan from Virgin Cellular, there’s a 300 minute plan with limitless textual content and internet for 35.00. Not dangerous! However for now, I am going to pocket the cash (that is 420.00 in a 12 months) and luxuriate in me newly rigged “hybrid” name telephone.
*There’s a firm that’s in beta testing now with a tremendous good telephone plan that’s geared toward Wifi customers. I am going to publish about that subsequent. So large title corporations, take be aware! Shoppers, be prepared for some evolution within the cellphone plan market!
