I’ve never had a smartphone but I’d like to get one now. I’m considering a Tracfone (Tf) because I’ve been satisfied with their basic phone service. I’d like to get some info on whether that’s a good choice for me. I’m especially interested in hearing from those with Tf smartphones.
For one example, Tf offers a plan that include 1.5 GB data, 1500 minutes, and 1500 texts for $125. I have several questions:
Is there a way to estimate how much use I’d get from 1.5 GB? I would be accessing email, facebook, the Dope, etc., and looking at Youtube clips, but likely not streaming Netflix or doing any gaming.
Is there any interchangeability, i.e. if you text a lot more than you talk can the minutes be applied for more texting, or can unused texts be applied for more data?
Is this wi-fi, or the internet over cellphone networks? If the latter, is that a problem? (If these questions don’t really make sense kindly explain.)
Anything else I should know? Any suggestions for non-Tf smartphone and service?
