Capture every moment with a camera that starts-up in less than a second, and has rapid-fire continuous shooting.

For many of our Pure TalkUSA customers, a simple “no frills” feature phone is all that they want and need. But others prefer to have lightning-fast web browsing, extraordinary picture quality and the power of a quad-core processor.

Those customers (and future customers like them), will want to check out the HTC One X. With a minimalist design, it features smoothly rounded piano-gloss sidewalls, a curved back (so it’s easy to hold), and a unified shell for increased durability. This smartphone’s camera alone puts it in the top-tier of technologically advanced phones for its ability to capture crisp, vivid photos, even in low light.

But picture quality isn’t the only thing that sets HTC’s flagship phone apart. With Beats Audio™, listening to music or video gives you a rich, authentic sound. Other features include… Continue reading

What costly mistake did Tim Tebow make in his #nocontract Super Bowl ad?

by

If you watched this year’s much-hyped Super Bowl commercials, you probably saw that the ever popular Tim Tebow, former quarterback for the New York Jets and Denver Broncos, has joined the #nocontract cell phone revolution and was even tapped to do an ad for T-Mobile.

We guess that with all of the extra time he had this past season, it only made sense that he took the time to evaluate his finances and see where he can save some money — and going #nocontract for your cell phone service is certainly one way to do that. To him we say, “Good for you, Tim! Getting rid of your cell phone plan contract is definitely the way to go!”

But we think Mr. Tebow may have “messed up” and made a costly mistake. Not in his commercial performance (which was great, by the way) — but with the company he chose to go with.

If in between saving puppies and starting a rock band, he did just a little bit more research, he probably would have found that Pure TalkUSA would have saved him even more money! (See the comparison chart.) Continue reading

Seniors using cell phones are much less likely to use texts

by

From Mashable.com (September 24, 2013):

Commercials portraying grandparents using phones and tablets to Skype with their grandkids may be deceptive — in reality, only 3% of cell phone users over the age of 65 use their smartphones to video chat.

Statista’s chart, below, shows how cell phone use differs by age group. As you might expect, teens and 20-somethings are far more likely to rely on cell phones to check email, text and listen to music than any other age group. Continue reading

Vote in the Pure TalkUSA “Name Our Phone Plan” Contest

PTU-NOPPC-blog2

Pure TalkUSA is getting ready to launch a few great new cell phone plan options later this month and we need your help in coming up with a name for one of our new fixed rate cell phone plans.

This new plan will give our customers the option of adding 750 fixed minutes to their account each month for only $21.95/month. Minutes can be used for both talk and text. And since the minutes are fixed, customers who use it will never have to worry about going outside of their monthly budget. It’s perfect for those who regularly use their cell phone, but don’t want to pay for an unlimited phone plan.

We want your ideas on what we should call this new plan option so we’ve listed our top 10 favorite suggestions below. Continue reading
