Get the Most Out of Your Truphone Phone Service And Avoid “Bill Shock” With These Tips

Mobile budgeting, cell phone bill budget

There are many ways in which Tru customers, new and old, can get the most out of their Tru phone service and even make the switch to Tru from their current wireless provider and save money in the process. Local providers are a thing of the past, and when you think about the possibilities of vacationing, traveling, business, or moving, the last thing you want to think about is changing your phone number, losing contact with friends and family back home, or having to purchase a new phone from a provider who’s going to overcharge you for international phone calls.

There are two ways to combat these types of situations, of course, one of which being the Tru VoIP App, similar to many other VoIP apps on the market. The other is Tru’s innovative SIM (Local Anywhere) GSM service. For the sake of this article (and because we have discussed the Tru VoIP App before), we will be discussing the SIM service.

One of the setbacks (at least right now) of the Tru service is the lack of bundle plans to keep the costs to “Personal” customers low. While it is a prepaid service (and hence is able to be budgeted more easily), the pay-as-you-go prices can seem a bit daunting to new customers at first glance.

However, it doesn’t have to appear this way. While we are waiting for the upcoming Tru SIM bundles, we have discovered various ways of keeping you talking to your friends around the world from anywhere while keeping your pocketbook in the green:

Unfortunately, in this day and age, many people have learned to abuse their wireless services. That is, they use more than they need to and way more than they should. Research has shown that prepaid plans lead to far less abuse. This is where Tru SIM and our methods come in.

Using our methods, we were able to keep our Tru account loaded and working at a mere $60 per month USD and we honestly didn’t notice the difference between our old provider after a short period of adjustment. In fact, since Tru has MVNO agreements with multiple GSM carriers, we noticed a significant improvement in our coverage area (this of course may vary from place to place).
