Live the Wireless Life

Why smartphones are good for society

In today’s increasingly connected world, mobile devices and their widespread use have become ubiquitous. It’s nearly impossible to go about our everyday lives without seeing someone talking, texting, or scrolling through social media on their mobile phone. While many opponents of technology have argued that smartphone usage has a negative impact on the health of our society, there is a wide range of valid opinions on the value that mobile phones and mobile phone use can bring to our lives.

Mobile phones offer connection

One of the greatest positive effects of mobile phone usage is that they keep us connected. In our rapidly paced world, it’s nearly impossible to stay in contact with family, friends, and coworkers without them. Our mobile devices improve our daily lives, keeping us connected on all levels, whether it’s a quick text, important phone calls, or a video chat.

Furthermore, mobile apps like Skype, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger allow us to stay connected with friends and family who live far away. These technologies make our lives easier by facilitatating connection between distant loved ones and allow face-to-face communication that would otherwise be impossible. Likewise, with the introduction of the “mobile office,” even business professionals can make and receive phone calls and stay connected and access information from any corner of the world, with help from their mobile phone.

Mobile phone users can access information faster than ever

Cell phones are also incredibly helpful when it comes to providing quick and easy access to important information. Thanks to the power of the internet, mobile phone users can now access a wealth of valuable information with just a few taps on a screen. Mobile phones make accessing information incredibly convenient, whether it’s researching a school project, finding a new recipe, or looking up directions. Moreover, most smart phones now come equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS) capabilities, which allow mobile phone users to find the quickest routes and shortest commutes with a single tap. Thanks to GPS technology, smartphones are the perfect companions for any traveler or commuter – providing help and guidance at all times.

Mobile phones can be incredibly helpful during moments of crisis. In an emergency, a call to 911 is often the best way to get help. With mobile phones, calling for help as soon as possible is much easier than waiting for a landline phone or flagging down a passerby for help. In addition, smartphones can also be important tools for providing help, as most phones now come equipped with cameras, medical advice apps, and the GPS function mentioned above. All of these features can help those in need and might even help save lives.


Cell phone technology has created an array of new employment opportunities, ranging from technical fields to creative pursuits and beyond. Following are just a few:

Design & Development

Beginning with the most obvious, employment opportunities created by cell phone technology are found in the design, development, and engineering processes of developing and providing new phones and services. Companies such as Apple and Samsung employ teams of engineers and designers to keep developing new innovations in the cell phone industry. This creates tech-savvy jobs for those in programming, software engineering, hardware engineering, and digital design. Additionally, many large cell phone companies now employ software developers to create applications that enhance these and other devices'' usability.

Administrative Roles

Looking further afield, phone companies also need administrative and customer service staff in their customer service divisions, to answer queries from users and help them with any problems they have with their devices. Further customer service roles are available in retail stores, as representatives of companies and their products. They may also need people to demonstrate the capabilities of the phones, sell them in-store, or help with any other inquiries customers have.

Remote Work

Beyond this, cell phone technology has created an environment of increased connectivity and flexibility. This has allowed many to take their work with them and create a range of new opportunities in the form of remote or flexible work. Remote work has been made possible through the use of cellular technology, with people being able to work from anywhere, effectively increasing the global labor pool. This creates new opportunities for those with the appropriate skills and experience, allowing them to work from home, or anywhere in the world.

Mobile Marketers

In addition, many modern companies are employing mobile marketers, who are responsible for creating and managing campaigns designed to reach a mobile audience. These roles require an understanding of how people use their phones and the function of various applications, as well as experience in creating marketing campaigns.

Smartphone use has revolutionized the way we live our lives, from how we communicate to the kind of work we do and where we do it. From staying connected with family, friends, coworkers and clients to providing quick and easy access to essential information, cell phones offer a variety of useful, positive effects and benefits. Certainly there's a downside. The average person spends about 3 out of 8 hours on their phone (and screen time for teens and young people is even worse), but this wireless life we’re living will continue to evolve and open doors for people all over the globe, improving millions of lives along the way.

What our customers are saying…

 “I have been using H2O prepaid service for more than 3 years. I get a good connection in the mid-west and other places I have visited in the US, with no dropped calls. I only recharge when my balance is low and never had any issue with their customer service. I have contacted their customer service on few occasions, and they’ve been most helpful.”

With H2O Wireless, you get the best cell phone coverage for less and the best unlimited plans – not to mention the most cost-effective, realistically priced unlimited plans – anywhere.

Or, choose our 12 month plan for just $8.33 a month!

With H2O Wireless’ 12 Month Plan, you purchase service once and you’re done for the year. No worrying about missing a payment or tracking the expense. You simply make a one-time payment of $100 using your credit or debit card, and that’s it. Our 12 Month Plan breaks down to crazy low $8.33 a month, and gives you an entire year of unlimited talk and text, as well as 1GB of high-speed data every month. There are no other payments to make or additional steps to take. Plus there’s no contract and no hidden fees.

Let's talk about “unlimited data”

With so many cellular phone businesses vying for your money, it’s difficult to tell which you can trust. The overpriced services clamber, “Pick me!” with promises of low cost, unlimited data plans. But do you really need an unlimited amount of data? Will you use all of that data? Maybe. But if you don’t, guess what? You still have to pay for it.

If you’re on a $70 a month plan which gives you up to 23GB of data it means you’re paying $3.04 per GB of data. And if you’re using just 4GB a month (which is what most people typically use), you’re paying $57.40 per month for data you’re not using. Ouch.   

The truth is…

Most people use just 2-5GB of data per billing cycle, and that’s because you’d have to spend every waking moment, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week online to exceed that amount. The average consumer doesn’t do that, and that’s why the average consumer doesn’t need a $50, $60 or $70 a month unlimited plan!

At H2O Wireless, we don’t think you should pay for data you don’t need and aren’t going to use.

That’s why we’re proud to offer you plans starting as low as $18 a month (with auto pay) for unlimited talk and text and 2GB of data.

Need more data one month? Simply go into your account portal and add more. When next month rolls around, if you need less data, you can go right back into your portal and reduce it. Simply log onto, click on My Account, and select Manage My Data. Make your changes, save them, and log out. It’s that simple.

Plus, H2O Wireless Connects You to the World

Each H2O Wireless Monthly Unlimited Plan includes unlimited international talk to 70 Countries (including China and Mexico), unlimited text to any country in the world, and up to $5 international talk credit depending on the plan you select. 

Purchase these features whenever you need:
