Re: How much do you pay monthly for cell phone? what do you get with it?

Tracphone for me that usually is dead somewhere in the car, it is for emergencies only.
DH has Straighttalk and w/ tax it is $32.72/mo automatically billed to our C so we never have to go in and out of WM to refill with the card etc oh 1,000 mins 1,000 texts and he never runs out

Re: How much do you pay monthly for cell phone? what do you get with it?

I'm in Canada, and in my province we have a lovely crown corporation called Sasktel and while we can use other companies like Rogers, Telus, Koodoo, in my rural area Sasktel is the best bet for service, and they know it as the charges are a bit much! Just changed my package and for roughly $155 a month for 2 phones we get unlimited text & data (includes picture/video texts), 3 call features (ie call display), free cell to cell calls (inc. long distance),150 mins of long distance and extra insurance.

Ours is a lot but we chose it and it works fine with our budget. We have no home phone just the cells.

Dh has an iPhone his work pays for.

We have 3 additional iPhones through AT&T for myself, 17yo dd, and 12yo dd.

We pay $333.20/ month for all three. We have the unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and each have the 3 gig( I think that is what it is called) in data each month. We also have insurance on each phone. We have never gone over on data because we use wireless at home!

Oh yeah, I guess I should mention we got rid of our landline when we upgraded our phones a couple of years ago...that way the extra money went to pay for what we wanted on our cells.

Re: How much do you pay monthly for cell phone? what do you get with it?

We have family plan with my mother through AT&T. She said she pays $200 for her phone alone. This covers 2200 minutes. Unlimited mobile to mobile, unlimited texting, unlimited pictures sent, and unlimited Internet access on her iPhone. It is an additional $15 for my sisters regular phone, $15 for my step fathers phone, and $25 for our iPhone. Our phone does have a limit on Internet use. I don't understand the way it is measured though. So $255. For all 4 phones before taxes or insurance.

Re: How much do you pay monthly for cell phone? what do you get with it?

I recently switched from straighttalk to sprint. My mother and I share 1500 minutes. We receive unlimited data and txt (to any carrier). Free nights after 7 and free weekends. We also have unlimited talk time to any cell phone, which I think is great because most people I have to talk to use their cell phones. The monthly cost is $150 per month for 2 lines. The start up cost is higher than that though. The first month was $230, but it is going to level out in a month or two.
