I received a Galaxy Note 2 to review. I absolutely love the phone. I chose AT&T service because it works by far the best for me living in the Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Los Angeles areas. The combination of the Galaxy phone and the AT&T service was a real dream. Sadly all good things must come to an end and I lost my AT&T service. Well I wanted things to go on as they were and checked into what unlimited voice and text, and a data package would be from AT&T and was shocked to find that it was $120.
I had a dilemma, I wanted to keep my AT&T service but did not want to pay that much. So I thought it would be clever to find out who offers service using the AT&T towers at a more reasonable price. I'm very happy to report that my research turned up Pure TalkUSA. They use the same towers that AT&T does but their unlimited text and talk with 1 GB of data is only $43.95 a month. So with no need for a contract on a month-to-month basis for less than half the price I was able to get the same service as I would have with AT&T.
So the first step was to go to the Pure TalkUSA website and order a SIM card. The micro-SIM card was only $4.95. In just a few days the SIM card arrived, I opened the back of my Galaxy, took out the micro-SIM card that was there, put in the new SIM card and was off to the races.
