What did I ever do without a smartphone? I say that to myself on a daily basis. The convenience that the Moto E from TracFone provides is time saving and an integral part of my daily schedule.

On morning walks, I plug in the earphones to let music set the pace from songs I’ve downloaded to the phone. And when I’m cooking dinner, I’m constantly referring to cooking pins that I’ve saved on Pinterest. Ask Alan about the delicious apple pork loin I prepared last week. Yum! And, of course, there are all of those “waiting” moments of downtime—at the doctor, in long lines at the grocery checkout, waiting for Alan to fuel up the truck—that’s when I click onto my favorite news app to find out what’s going on in the world. Okay, I glance at my Facebook feed, too.

But the convenience of TracFone became even more evident on a recent trip to join friends on a fall holiday at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. As we drove from Montana to Idaho to Wyoming, the Moto E’s TracFone plan seamlessly switched from one carrier to another providing the best coverage available in each area with no roaming fees. All that talk about TracFone being America’s largest and most dependable network really is true.

Using TracFone, I shared photos of a Grand Teton waterfall hike with friends and family.

While we were in Jackson Hole, I used my phone to check the status of trails in Grand Teton National Park and confirm driving directions. After taking photos from a hike to Hidden Falls, I uploaded them to my Instagram account and emailed them to our travel companions. Using the Yelp app, I checked out the restaurants on our itinerary. Don’t you love it when your traveling companions have made the reservations and all you have to do is show up and eat?

Of course I did most of this by connecting via free Wi-Fi, preserving the data on my TracFone Airtime Card for when there isn’t any free Wi-Fi available.

And did I mention the convenience of adjusting my calendar when the doctor’s office called to reschedule an appointment? If I had waited until returning home, who knows how long it would have been before I could see him?

Now I know that some of you are thinking, “So what, I do that with my smartphone all the time and I’m not on TracFone.” My answer: “It’s costing you a lot more.”

Disclosure: I am a paid ambassador for TracFone.
