A T-Mobile Family
T-Mobile is one of the finest phone company that can provide all its customers a wide range of texting plans. Whether there’s no plan or unlimited texting, T-Mobile contains texting plans that can help customers save plenty of money for the future. In all, there are four texting plans and they are no plan, 400 domestic messages, 1000 domestic messages, and unlimited texting. This is why I am here to offer my assistance to any customer that is planning to save money through picking the right texting plan. Well, it looks like I have my first set of customers, the Borccum family. The Borccum family consists of Jacob (Dad), Alisa (Mom), and there two kids Henry and Brittany. Each family members are apparently in need of the best texting plans that can lower their bills and save money for their upcoming vacation to Paris. To start off, Jacob Borccum uses an approximately 780 texts per month. Let’s try to go to each of the texting plans and pick the best that can connect with Jacob’s texting rate. For the no plan, Jacob can text 780 texts per month but he will have to pay \$0.15 for each texts, and that can equal to \$117. Now let’s move to the 400 domestic messages, which costs \$4.99. For Jacob, he passes the 400 messages so he will have to add the extra 380 messages to \$4.99 which costs \$57. The 400 messages plan equaled to \$61.99 and that eliminates the no texting plan. Moving on to the 1000 domestic messages, Jacob didn’t pass the texting rate so he will just have to pay \$9.99 which eliminates the 400 messages plan. The last plan is unlimited, so the payment will always stay as \$14.99. This concludes that for Jacob, the best texting plan for him is the 1000 domestic messages plan because he can save money from it. Next in the line is Alisa Borccum and she uses an approximately 7,500 texts per month. By going through each of the texting plans I, or should I say we can pick the best texting plan that can best go with Alisa’s texting rate. For the no plan, Alisa can text 7,500 texts per month but she will get charge \$0.15 for each texts, and that can equal to \$1,125. The 400 domestic messages as said before costs \$4.99. For Alisa, she passes the 400 messages so she will have to add the extra 7,100 messages to \$4.99 which costs \$1,065. The 400 messages plan equaled to \$1,069.99 and that removes the no texting plan. Moving on to the 1000 domestic messages, Alisa passed the texting rate so she will have to pay \$9.99 and the extra 6,500 texts which equals to \$984.99. This gets rid of the 400 messages plan. The last plan is unlimited, so the payment will always stay as \$14.99. Now we can come up to the conclusion that the best texting plan for Alisa is the unlimited texting plan. The third member to the family is Brittany Borccum and she approximately texts 860 per month. Starting all over again the no texting plan, Brittany can text 780 texts per month and the charge will always be \$0.15 for each texts, and that equals to \$129. The next plan is the 400 domestic messages, which will always costs \$4.99. For Britany, she passes the 400 messages so she will have to add the extra 460 messages to \$4.99 which costs \$73.99. The 400 messages plan equaled to \$73.99 and that takes the no texting plan out. Moving on to the 1000 domestic messages, Brittany didn’t pass the texting rate so she will just have to pay \$9.99 which eliminates the 400 messages plan. The last plan is unlimited, so the payment as said before will always stay as \$14.99. This settles that for Brittany, the best texting plan for her is the 1000 domestic messages plan because she can save money and maybe use it to buy a souvenir in Paris. Last but not the least of the Borccum family is Henry and he has a rate of 300 texts per month. For the no texting plan, Henry can text 300 texts per month and with the charge of \$0.15 he will have to pay \$45. The next plan is the 400 domestic...
