Cost is Exorbitant!

by Runningwithscissors    Nov 24, 2006, 1:47 AM

I have to admit, I'm fantastically impressed by the idea and the execution. I think it's great that there is a product that takes into account the needs of those who don't need 1.2 million gadgets packed into a phone, and really need it for essential purposes.

That said, it's upsetting to see how the phone and rate plans are priced, so much so that they would probably price someone who is on a fixed income out of consideration. I know that my 80 year old uncle has been very happy with previous services, but has complained about the phones becuase of the difficulty of button pressing and complicated menus. one thing he never complains about, however, is the cost of the rate plan, usually no more than 20/every three months w/ Virgin Mobile PAYG. The 20/month cost for no minutes seems a little...expensive. Add the almost 175 cost of the phone, and it's a little steep.
