Ordered a New Cell Phone by a New Provider

The provider was recommended as a good, economical company on Google. Really needed a new provider and phone. Got the kind of phone I like, the LG Stylo4 (also was discounted), and a lower cost plan. It also is 25% off the plans for 6 mos. It's Twigby as the provider. I'm going to see how this goes but since because of the Stimulus payment I can finally afford a new phone! :D :sneaky:(y):giggle::coffee:(y)The basic phone plan I chose is 15.00 a month plus a few things I chose but it shouldn't be as high as other providers after the 6 mo. discount. Should be less than 30. per month after 6 mos.

Got my new phone Friday and then Saturday I charged it fully and got it activated and set it up. Works good so far and the provider was helpful when I chatted with someone at their site. Just learning the ins and outs of how to use everything and so far pretty easy to figure out things on it.

Glad everyone's happy with their phones.

I just wanted to note that Google doesn't actually recommend anything, even though it provides links to website pages when you search for something. As Google cannot possibly manually classify, among the hundreds, thousands or millions of website pages which may answer a given search, which should be first, second, etc. What Google (and other search engines) do is to use a formula (called an "algorithm") to determine what pages would answer that search. And, of course, the algorithm is complex/somewhat known/can be learned about/can be tested/undergoes changes, such that there's a whole industry based on trying to get good listings at Google.

Of course, if you're getting good results at Google, that's excellent.

Anyway, just something to know.

I thought about my word choice "recommending" after I made the post because I realized it was just listed as an economical phone service.

So you aren't really telling me something that I didn't already know.😁

Okay, Ruth, and understood! I just wasn't sure who knew and didn't know that listing of websites at Google are not actually recommendations by Google. Lots of people don't know that.
