Would I love have an iPhone? Yes!
Would a Droid be my new best friend? You bet!
But pockets are not as deep as Bill Gates or even Bill the Mailman.
So what do you do if you are a social media professional with limited funds?
Virgin Mobile has an answer for that…a $25 dollar plan.
A few months ago, Virgin Mobile launched an ambitious campaign where you get unlimited text , data, email and web, along with 300 minutes for $25 a month.
The plan is perfect for me, because it is not only cost effective but the unlimited text plan allows me to my text posts/microblog quickly to Twitter, Facebook and Ping.Fm when I combine them with Tumblr.
I currently use the LG Rumor 2, which I bought on sale at Best Buy for $50 (thank you mom for teaching me how to bargain shop) and since then I have been effectively to surf the net, do Twitter searches and fulfill my social media duties throughout the day and night.
Also, if you are a person who talks more than 300 minutes a month you either have to watch your minutes to who are forced to pay more( $40 for 1200 minutes and $60 for unlimited calls, which are both great deals since they also include the unlimited text , data, e mail and web).
However those issues aside, for social media practitioner like myself who is basically Ted Turner on a budget, Virgin Mobile is the best way to go….that is until my best friend Droid decides to give me a deal.
