gardenerRey runs a neighborhood gardening service with his son Felipe. They use CellPlusPlus for everything from business messages and billing to international calling and money sharing.

"You wouldn't guess by looking at me," says Rey, "but my first name is really Reynaldo - people have been calling me Rey for years. I lived in Guadalajara while I was growing up and married my beautiful Ramona there. We had four kids and moved up here about five years ago, when our middle daughter Carmen was high-school age. She's the brightest star in our heavens, and we wanted her to go to school here."

"My oldest, Felipe, and I started the gardening business as soon as we got here, and it's really taken off. But a couple of years after we got here, Ramona's father took sick and she went back with our two young ones to take care of him. Now they're down there, me and Felipe are here, and Carmen has gone off to Los Angeles to start college. It would be a lot tougher on us without the GenieCard Visaź Prepaid Card and CellPlusPlus."

"Deciding on CellPlusPlus for the business was easy. It's inexpensive, but it let's us look like a lot bigger company than we are. We can get our calls, messages and faxes forwarded to us on our cell phones when we're out on jobs, and all of those sorts of things. Felipe had a great idea a couple of months ago - we got a second CellPlusPlus account, one for our business and one for the family and friends. Now we have one for business with all the messages in English and the other with all the messages in Spanish."

"We also use CellPlusPlus to make all of our international calls, AND to handle our money between here and Mexico. You see, our CellPlusPlus account has a local number down in Guadalajara where Ramona is with abuelito Bernardo. There's also a local number in Los Angeles, where Carmen is at school, so when her mama wants to talk to her it's just like a local call. Sometimes we all get to be on the same call with the CellPlusPlus conference room. That is very sweet. It's almost like being a family together!"

"For her 19th birthday, I gave Carmen her own GenieCard Companion Card, and that's been like gold. I can share money from my card with hers for books or whatever she needs. I do the same with Ramona and the little ones - she has a card too. So I can share money from my card with hers for groceries and Bernardo's medicine. It doesn't cost a truck full of fees, and I don't have to worry about the exchange rates when I do it."

"It's hard being apart like this, and God willing we'll be together again soon. But for now, while we're apart, we can at least talk to each other without feeling like we've spent all our money to do it thanks to CellPlusPlus."
