Let’s call this a mixed review. We’re not sure cell phone company ReachOut Wireless will be completely happy having TrillChick as a spokesperson in this YouTube video, but she certainly offers an honest point of view.
In case you can’t view videos, we’re also providing a transcript so you can read what TrillChick has to say. We’ve also highlighted what we consider to be the important sections.
TrillChick: Wassup? It’s Ann (?), coming back with some valuable information for some of y’all people. Well, umm, the thing I’m trying to do … I … I have been trying to put a video on YouTube for every day and in order to do that I have been going back into a box of videotapes that I’ve filmed, like, over the years and some things I was just working on, making family videos and stuff like that. But as I was doing that I saw that some of the stuff was very entertaining and very funny to me. I don’t know about everybody else, but I made some people mad by putting some stuff on there and I’m sorry. I apologize. So I decided to try something different today. I’ve got some information for y’all. I don’t know if y’all have about the public assistance phones that you can get a free phone with, depending on which plan you choose, with up to 250 free minutes per month that they add on there and you don’t have to pay anything for it. You just fill out the form and you send it back and you can actually call the number. Here’s the box right here (holds up box). You can see this is the box ‘cause I got my mine. Mine came in a couple weeks ago. And the phone is actually really crappy and, but, it’s free so, you know, who can complain about something free? I got my phone and, like, the first day this little top part, the covering for the antenna, it fell off. And, I mean, it still picks up and works and everything, but the antenna fell off and I couldn’t find it. I looked everywhere for it. Couldn’t find it. But it’s an alright phone, you know. It’s a Kyocera. Comes with a charger. Doesn’t have any instructions. You have voicemail on the phone and it’s 250 minutes every month. And if you have another cell phone, whether you have an unlimited plan or not, you know, it could be helpful for you. And the phone doesn’t cost anything. You just need to meet the requirements and, you know, they’ll send you a phone. You fill out the papers. I don’t even know how long it takes for it to come in ‘cause I never check my mail but maybe once or twice a month. But I checked it and it was in there and it had over eight hours of talk time on it. I don’t know how long it had been in the box, uhhh, yeah. The only other thing I would say about these phones is that I wouldn’t talk about any business that I wouldn’t want anybody on earth to hear about on the phone because it’s gotta be some catch with the phone. I mean, it’s a government … it’s a government free phone. What I’m thinking is that they use the phone to do drug trafficking probably or possibly any other thing that may be going on illegally. And also if you have cell phones just like this one, I know that the FBI has been known to do things like record people from the phones and even if you turn your phone off they can still pick up. You know, you would have to remove the battery from your phone just in case you do get this phone. And another thing: I haven’t done any text messaging from the phone, but people have told me that text messages use up a lot of minutes. So if you have the government-assisted phone, don’t text if you need all your minutes. And the place where you can get your phone is at ReachOutWireless.com and I will put the number on the screen right here and the web address right here. And down below I will have links so that you will know where to go or who to call to get the phone. Thank you for watching and please subscribe and rate. Bye.
We’ve had lots of good reviews of ReachOut’s free cell phone program and we’d like to get your feedback on your phone, too, so our other readers can make up their own minds.
Thanks for the honest review, TrillChick. But don’t worry, we’re pretty sure the FBI isn’t listening to your conversations.
