Mobile Experience Asia: $2 Cell Phone Plans
While in Taipei, my uncle loaned me a basic cell phone to use. I asked why he would keep a spare cell phone around and pay for a premium; the answer was unheard of. Its simply affordable. The plan they have cost NT$60 or $2 USD. It turns out that my aunt had kept a legacy account that was setup for her as a university professor, with special pricing. So long as they make their basic $2 monthly payment, they can hold on to this phone/account forever. How cool is that?
