Website of the Day: Watch My Cell

Since most of you are paying hefty cell phone bills each month, I thought I'd post this website which offers a useful app that will prevent you from going over your total amount of free monthly minutes. Watch My Cell periodically checks your cell phone account (every three hours) and sends you a text message or email alert when you're close to going over, so you don't have to learn the hard way with an outrageous bill. Once downloaded, you will need to configure this free application with your cell phone provider, how many minutes you get for free, and when you want to receive a notification. This app currently only works with PCs and Cingular/AT&T, Sprint/Nextel, T-Mobile, and Verizon phone networks.
To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

I have a prepaid phone because I don't use it too much, and I always wished I got notified when my account reached $0. I tried to make a call today and realized my phone hadn't been working for 5 days. What if someone had been trying to call me? Would it be that hard for the company to send an automated text message?

That is such a good idea! Wow, that's perfect for me :) I usually have to keep a record of how long I talk to someone so I don't go over my minutes. Sometimes I forget to write it down and I have to estimate and I end up using more minutes. I love this idea!

that is really neat. my service does that already - i get a text with a number i can call if i go over. and, if it's like an over texting / over sending pictures thing (which happened this summer) then can change your plan right there. instead of paying 86 dollars for overcharges in my data sending, i changed the plan to a 15 dollar a month for unlimited everything - about 5 bucks more than i pair per month
