In this tough economic times, I think its a great for cell phone company to step up and provide this service. I shared this with a family I know can use this extra help. The wife is the sole earner, her husband has lost job for about 6 months and have 2 kids. Recently she had to take reduce hours at the day job she use to work.
Please feel free to pass this or share with people you think will be benefited with this service.
