    Safeway/Vons launching Wireless Program

    Called the only 1 mobile. It uses verizon and has a per minute program and a monthly program, looks decent.

    They have a camera phone for $19.99 which is a pretty good price, its an audiovox 8910, I saw them for sale yesterday.

    Sheesh-o-mighty. That phone was old 5 years ago! Page Plus sent me one in trade for the rotten POS 8500. I guess 8910 is usable but you wouldn't want to be seen in public with it. Wonder if our local safeways (Randalls) will have them? I might add, with a fairly cheap cable it gets on QNC easily. That's the only reason I hang on to it for an occasional bit of slow data service.

    for $19.99

    it isn't that bad, a color camera phone with external display, would be a good kids phone. Sure tracfone has phones that price but not with cameras or external displays. It says the monthly plan has 7Pm nights and weekends, which is nice, I am not sure which other phones they will launch.

    Interesting. Haven't been to Safeway in a while. Any details on the expiration date of minutes and what not? For $20 I wouldn't mind trying them out.

    There's Only1 place for this payg plan and that is the garbage can.

    Only1 Mobile Minute Plan

    Just 15˘ a Minute

    Value Expiration
    $20 Card 30 Days
    $30 Card 60 Days
    $50 Card 90 Days

    There is a 1 minute daily access fee charged to your account each day the phone is active.

    Text messages are just 10˘ per message.
    You either have coverage or you have Sprint native, you can't have both.

    PAYG rules; contracts are for fools.

    The monthly plans look interesting with 7PM

    $0.15 is better than tracfone and GoPhone, which are the other two brands they had at our safeway, so I guess it's an improvement :-) I doubt they are going after savy web consumers like us :-)

    Put this in your signature if you are part of the 8% who would be laughing.

    Idaho / Washington / Nevada is what came up with "Find Store" for my zip at only1mobile.

    My local Safeway affiliate is Genuardi's.

    The closest Safeway store to where I'm sitting now (in D.C.) is just downstairs from me. According to the Only 1 Mobile Web site, the closest one that carries those phones is in Coeur d'Alene, ID.
    If you lived in this signature, you'd be home by now.

    Oh, OK. I was looking on the Safeway website. LOL. The closest store to me came up to be the ID one as well.
