It seems that almost everyone has a cell phone these days. However, if you are one of the few who only has one for emergencies, you can save money by getting rid of your cell phone plan. A little known fact is that you can call 911 from your cell phone even if you don’t have a contract or minutes. Any working phone will do, so you don’t need to spend a lot of money for one. In fact, you can probably just get a cast-off from a friend or relative. Just make sure to keep the battery charged. This is a great opportunity to ensure the safety of elderly parents or young families.
