Alyssa Collazo: Scratch Wireless Review/Giveaway♥

Scratch Wireless Review/Giveaway♥

 Do a lot of texting and are sick of paying a $75+ a month for service, then Scratch Wireless is perfect for you. When you buy a Scratch smartphone, you’ll never have to pay a penny for service. Scratch Wireless was created because we love smartphones–we just don’t love paying so much to use them. With Scratch's Android smartphones, their unique technology, and Wi-Fi everywhere, it turns out smartphone service can be free. You already have the connectivity. Wi-Fi is nearly everywhere these days, and it's free. You only need cellular to fill the gaps. Their phones use Wi-Fi wherever possible—they call this Wi-Fi First. When there's no Wi-Fi around, the Sprint Nationwide Network is there to back you up so you're always connected. Texting is free, even when you’re away from Wi-Fi. Wireless providers charge you a ton of money for texting, even though it costs them almost nothing to send a text. With Scratch Wireless, texting is free and unlimited on both Wi-Fi and cellular networks. When there's no Wi-Fi around, you're still good. If you need data or voice service and there's no Wi-Fi nearby, just buy a pass. It's as easy as buying a song. For as little as $1.99, you can jump on the cellular network (provided on the Nationwide Sprint Network), do what you need to, and when you're back on Wi-Fi it's all free again. If you need more or simply don't want to think about it, we also offer bigger passes to keep you connected all the time. But there's never any contract or obligation. It's always up to you.

Currently Scratch only offers one phone and that's the Motorola Photon Q for $269. If you mainly use your phone for texting and the occasional phone calls, then definitely get this phone. If you’re always by a wireless network, then get this phone since even voice calls are free if you’re on the wireless network. If you do want to use your phone outside of a WiFi area, that's when the charges come in. Scratch Wireless has a partnership with Sprint to offer $1.99 per day for up to 30 minutes of cell calls and another $1.99 per day for up to 25MB of data. There's also a monthly $14.99 pass for either 250 minutes of voice calls or 200MBs of data. CEO Alan Berrey tells us that Scratch Wireless wanted to take a different tact from traditional cell phone service. "There's no unnecessary cost with us," he says. "We have no towers, no FCC, no leasing locations to deal with." Because of this so-called "WiFi First" strategy, the phones will work internationally as well, as long as you have access to a WiFi network of course.

  5. the cost is low. I have Sprint so I know the Sprint network is good. I had looked in to this but I use way too much data so this wasn't option for me.

  7. I like that it's got a keyboard. I'm terrible at texting anyway, but a keyboard would help tremendously. :)
