If you don’t have a cell phone now is the time to get one and if your concerned with long-term or expensive contracts do yourself a favor and check out YourTel. YourTel Wireless was found in Kansas City MO in 1995 and specialize in cell phones for people who hate long-term commitment. Not only do they not expect long-term contracts (or any contracts for that matter) but credit checks and down payments are not required. Currently a customer has the option to pick from 5 different plans: Lifeline Free Plans, Additional Minutes, Text Messaging Rates, Data Service Rates and Change Plan Request. All plans include the following features: Caller ID, Call Waiting, Three-Way Calling, Call Forwarding, and Voicemail.
At the YourTelWireless you can pay your bill, report a lost phone, view a coverage map, check your outstanding balance, contact Yourtel by email and get more minutes. YourTel Wireless coverage is pretty much limited to major cities or densely populated areas. If you would rather check your balance by phone please press *646* and then press talk/send (press the * key, then 646, press the star key, and then press talk/send). For enrollment, customer care, or technical support please call toll-free 1-877-388-1082. They also have a live chat option that can be found under the contact us portion of the website. LiveChat should be available from Monday – Saturday: 8:00 am – 6:00 pm.
