Like everyone else, David Edwards has a cell phone. And like everyone else, his cell phone bill bled him.
He'd been with Verizon for years, but he was tired of paying $ 185 a month for three lines. "And I didn't even have a smartphone," added the 55-year-old marine scientist who lives in Seminole, Florida.
Then his son told him about it Twigby, The discount mobile operator is active in the Sprint and Verizon networks and offers plans starting at $ 9 a month.
It was worth trying, wasn't it?
Is a $ 24 / month cell phone bill too good to be true?
At first Edwards hesitated to let Verizon down. After all, he'd tried a number of discount stores in the past, and it hadn't always worked. But that nagging monthly bill of $ 185 finally pushed him to make the switch.
Now? Edwards pays $ 24 a month for his single line. He can hardly believe it.
"I used to pay for an arm and a leg for exactly the same service," says Edwards. "I'm really happy with it."

"You only pay for what you use," says Edwards. "It is very attractive."
