In these stressful and uncertain times, the last thing you should have to worry about is whether you can pay your cell phone bill.

They’re expensive, though! The big wireless companies will charge you an arm and a leg, and it feels like the cost just keeps going up.

One company is slashing prices, though. In this economically shaky time, a discount wireless carrier called Twigby just rolled out three new smartphone plans with lower prices than ever, starting at $15 a month.

There’s also a special discount — 25% off for your first six months of service.

Each plan has unlimited talk and text messaging. With the discount, here’s the cost of the data plans:

  • 3G: $15 a month
  • 5G: $18.75 a month
  • 10G: $26.25 a month

After the six-month discount ends, the prices for those plans go to $20, $25 and $35 per month, respectively — still a bargain.

You don’t have to venture into a cell phone store, either. You can switch your provider online — right from your couch.

What You Need to Know Before You Slash Your Phone Bill

We get it. Switching your phone provider can feel like a big ordeal, but it’s really pretty simple. Before you make the switch, we answer some questions you might have:

What If I Go Over My Data Limit?

You don’t have to worry about potential overage fees for extra data. If you go over, Twigby lets you use unlimited data at slower speeds for free through the end of your billing period, or you can choose to bump up to the next level of data, which costs just a little more. It won’t stick you with high overage fees.

Will I Get Reliable Service?

If you’re worried about having reliable service, test the waters first. You won’t be locked into a contract. Because Twigby offers a 30-day guarantee (or it’ll refund you), you can make sure you have good coverage before moving other members of your family to Twigby. 

Twigby operates on the Sprint network for talk, text and data. And if you’re ever outside of Sprint coverage, Twigby lets you use the Verizon network for talk and text for no additional charge. You can also use Wi-Fi for talk and text at no additional charge. 

Can I Bring My Phone and Keep My Number?

You won’t have to part with your current phone and number. Twigby will hold your hand through the process of bringing those with you. Keep in mind these new smartphone value plans are only available for iPhones and Android phones

What If I Need Help?

If you ever have any questions, just hop on a live chat with customer service. Twigby gets good reviews, and customers say they’re pleased with how easy it is to get in touch with the Twigby team.

What If I Want to Change My Plan?

You can adjust your plan at any time. You pay for your plan one month at a time, without being locked into a contract.

How to Knock Your Cell Phone Bill to as Little as $15/Month

The bottom line here is the savings. With Twigby, you can get a data plan for your phone starting at $15 a month.

And while Twigby just rolled out these three new smartphone plans, it still has its previous phone plans, too. The company is known for its “build your own plan” option. You get to design your plan based on what you need. Each plan comes with unlimited texts, then you choose how many minutes and how much data you need each month.

Times are tough out there. You shouldn’t have to wonder if you can afford your cell phone bill. It takes minutes to get started with Twigby.
