Bluetooth for your prepaid cell phone

ban cell phone handset use while driving, the trend seems to be moving that way. In July, California and Washington state added such restrictions. They join Connecticut, Washington D.C., New Jersey, New York, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as states which completely ban the use of a handset while driving. Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Mexico, Massachusetts, and Illinois have particular jurisdictions which ban the practice, though it’s not statewide. So what’s a prepaid user to do? Get a Bluetooth, of course. Problem is, it’s not as easy to find on the usually low-end selection of prepaid phones from most carriers. Seeing as not many prepaid phones have Bluetooth capabilities, we at Prepaid Reviews are going to do what we always do: Go through the options and sort them out for you.

    I believe you’ll start to see a number of lower end handsets with bluetooth. The above list is a good one, with the only one that stands out as missing being Boost Mobile.
    It’s interesting that you can still text and drive but not talk on the handset….oh well…I’m sure we’ll get there eventually ;-).

    I’m not sure why you linked to ABCNews for the Samsung Slash review. You could have just linked directly to the CNet review.

    For some strange reason you list NET 10 has not having ANY Bluetooth phones, well your information needs to be updated because they have MANY bluetooth capable phones, and for a VERY reasonable cost!

    Not only are the NET 10 phones cheap to buy, but you can’t beat the pay-as-you-go plan they have. For phone service that works in any area the “Big Boys” do at a mere 15.00 a month, you just can’t beat it! I’ve used NET 10 for YEARS, and I’ve never had a single complaint, when you upgrade your phone they transfer your number and time to your new one for free, no hidden costs anywhere! People have been getting the shaft for too long by the “Big Boys”, time for people to see there’s other options for wireless service! Customer Service always answers the phone too!
