My parents live in the stone age. Seriously. They have no satellite TV (we don't either but less from cave man syndrome than severely cheapitis), no internet, no computers, and no cell phones. Mom and Dad take Little Bit out almost every Monday and Tuesday. It is a huge blessing but sometimes it scares me to death. They get busy doing grandparenty things and don't bring my Little Bit home until 5 or 6 in the evening. They drive an old car with a bazillion miles on it. When the clock starts to head towards 5 I start to contemplate calling area hospitals.
It is quite clear that my parents need a cell phone. It is also apparent that they will not be making this purchase for themselves. I will have to step up and make the purchase but which one to buy? There are so many options out there. One of those options is the TracFone.
The TracFone is one of the cheapest ways to own a cell phone. I found out there are no contracts, no credit checks, no activation charges or cancelation fees. Wowsa! You know what else makes them a serious contender? The fact that the TracFone has nationwide coverage and excellent reception. What kind of phone can you get with such a cheap cell service? Think Motorola, Kyocera, LG, Nokia and Samsung. All the big names in cell phone providers AND you can even get Smart phones. How would one pay for such a cool service? You pay as you go online or with cards at tons of retailers throughout the United States.
I am pretty impressed by all of these elements but you know what impressed me even more was the testimonials by real TracFone customers

Here I go plunging my parents into the computer age. How well do you think they will adjust? Do you use a TracFone? What is your impression of this product?
