  • Hop-on’s lightweight and splashy ChitterChatter is a fun disposable phone designed with kids in mind. Besides making calls, it has a locator feature that gives a child, senior citizen or person with special needs the ability to communicate his location with the touch of one button. MarketWire reports that the ChitterChatter can be used with Verizon and AT&T networks. The phone comes with up to 2 hours of call time and does not require a contract to activate. It can currently be purchased through online retailers, and AT&T is planning to make it available in its stores.

    Designed to cater for those who don't need to constantly use a mobile as well as being a convenient piece of safety equipment for holidays and camping trips, the Hop-on phone is available in different models to suit GSM, CDMA, and TDMA protocols. The other big plus is that the phones can be readily recycled and like cameras in the 90's, it wont be long before the disposable phone is a common sight in supermarket aisles and at service stations around Australia.

  • But I carry for those other functions. For me, this is perfect. This is the disposable phone I’ve been waiting for. I could destroy a half-dozen of these $20 models in ’07 and be money ahead.

    Hop-On has introduced cheap disposable mobile phone named HOP1800. The phone is also called as anti-iPhone. The HOP1800 is available in the US at just $10. The phone supports dual-band 850/1900MHz.

    What is coming next? (8:12am EST Thu Mar 08 2001)
    Please note the forthcoming sarcasm. Yes, this is exactly the remedy to my communications problem. I turned in that fancy, expensive one I bought from Bellsouth. It was much too big and bulky. Now I can carry around a pocketful of small ones that equate to roughly the same price. Mine is 70 bucks a month for 450 minutes, call waiting, incoming calls,and caller ID. I just dont see the need a disposable phone unless we all bought one for emergency needs and put it in our glovebox. America is getting smarter and the end result is that we are getting fatter and more lazy too. by Isle of palms surfer

    A burner phone, also known as a disposable phone, is quite literally just any phone that you buy for one purpose and then throw away. Many people may balk at the idea of throwing away a device, any device, that costs as much as a phone. The thing is, a burn phone does not have to be as great as your primary phone, it is meant to be thrown away.

And when you use a burner, you have to remember to leave your real cellphone at home. In 2009 a medical student named was arrested and charged with murdering a woman in a Boston hotel. Markoff had allegedly used a prepaid disposable cellphone to contact the victim beforehand; he had allegedly used similar tactics in another incident where he robbed a different woman at a different hotel. Both times, Markoff had had his real cellphone in his pocket, and, even though the phone was off, it was still communicating with cell towers. Police were able to determine Markoff’s identity in part by gathering information based on the signals emitted from his real cellphone. So keep that in mind.
