Just wondering what most ppl pay per month for their cell phone bill, and with which company.
I feel like im paying a fortune! my bill is currently $85 a month, that includes unlimited talk, text and web! It’s so expensive!!!!!!!February 4, 2011 2:56 pm at 2:56 pm #736804SacrilegeMember

Ask yourself if you really need the unlimited talk, text and/or web.
How often do you text? How often do you use the web on your phone? And check your minute usage for the last year – perhaps a defined-minute plan might work better for you.

85 is cheap (unless you have a horrible provider) I currently pay 95 and it has 700 minutes and unlimited text and that price comes with discounts!February 4, 2011 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm #736808
You can usually do better with a family plan.
Figure out how many “peek-time” minutes you really need, and you probably dont need a plan with unlimited anytime minutes.February 4, 2011 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #736809jesse123Member

oh yeah mine is a family planFebruary 4, 2011 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #736811
No I have Tmobile. I have $49.99 unlimited talk, thats cheaper than the minute plans, for 400 minutes you need to pay 59 or 65 not usre, the $49 is loyalty pricing. If anyone of you ppl has Tmobile, call them if youv’e been with them for lets say 2 years, and ask for the loyalty pricing. You should be able to get unlimited for $49.99 , i just got a free blackberry from them, but the problem is web costs 30 bucks a month unlimited, and $15 for 200 beta or mega, not sure what she was saying. Anyway since im ” loyal” lol, they gave it to me for $20 dollars unlimited web.
All you need to do is ask and tell them that you want cheaper pricing or you will go to metro pcs.I still think this is tons of money, were talking almost $1000 dollars a year! thats like 6 Florida trips, or one trip to EY.February 4, 2011 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #736812
Ask yourself if you really NEED web access on your phone, or is it just a luxury you can do without (and wait to get home to use your computer for web access.)
I have a family plan with Verizon for about $190 per month for FOUR phones, NO web, unlimited texting, 3,000 shared (among the 4 of us)peak minutes.
BUT – you also have TEN numbers (shared among the 4 phones) that you have unlimited calling to (they are NOT part of the 3,000 minutes cheshbon) AND free nights and weekends AND unlimited calling to other Verizon phones.
That comes to less than $50 per phone per month and the only thing missing is the web (which you CAN get for an extra $10 per month per phone).
Plus I do think Verizon’s service is the best.February 4, 2011 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #736813
the problem is that i have to get web with a blackberry, its not an optionFebruary 4, 2011 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #736814✡onegoal™Participant
Ya I have Boost Mobile which is a part of sprint. The service isn’t great but it’s $50 for unlimited talk, text, and web.February 4, 2011 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #736815
So if you must have web access, IF you can put together a family plan similar to what I mentioned above (and it does NOT necessarily have to be your immediate family, i.e. you could make it with friends or children-in-law, or whomever) as long as you work out who will be responsible to pay the bill, you could pay (for your share – your phone) about $60 per month INCLUDING web access.February 4, 2011 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #736816OfcourseMember
Has anyone taken into consideration that most of the Smartphones that people use for Web access have crazy high radiation levels?
Is there a Smartphone that’s good and has a lowish SAR (less than 1 or near 1)?
Also, Sprint has good reception in BP, which other carriers have good reception in BP?February 6, 2011 7:30 am at 7:30 am #736817
no clue about BP.
I see no one really pays less. interesting
