Non-scam cell phone recommendations?
Submitted by Andrew Farago on August 16, 2009 - 03:23
I just got my second bill for our new AT&T cell phone package, which is for two cell phones (rarely used), no texting, rollover minutes (which we're never in danger of using up) and a handful of other features that we're probably never going to use. The package is $69.99 a month...but our monthly bill comes in at $110 after some "Government Fees" and "Usage Fees" and other things kick in.
Is that a normal amount to expect to pay for monthly cell phone use? I'm planning to visit the cell phone store tomorrow and ask about the bill, since I'm pretty annoyed about getting hit for an extra $40 every month for something I don't even use all that much. I'd rather stick with my previous pay-as-you-go phone and a landline, but I was curious about what plans everyone else uses and what you can recommend.
