Hi Friends, I am using 3 cell phones office, home and one which provides some free calling? I had stopped one paper bill for my Vodafone number in Jan 10 however I was getting paper bill for other 2 mobiles. Today I have subscribed for e-bill and there will be no paper bill delivered to me. Doing this I am saving some papers? There are still few bills I am getting in paper form like Electricity bill. Hope they will start e-bill soon. If there is a way to do something electronically, rather than on paper, I will always chose the electronic way. How about you, do you still receive paper bills for different services?

I receive all my bills online!! i think my cell phone carrier actually started charging for getting bills on paper which is kind of crazy but a good way to promote electronic billing. It saves the company money too for paper and prepaid postage

Every drop in the ocean counts. I always prefer electronic communication. My papa prefers hard copy. :) He has his fears. Electronic communication may be hacked someday, or get deleted. But that is not so in the case of hard copies. :) Go green, yes, that is one way. :) I pay bills once in a year. :) So it is not that hard. :) And as far as landline is concerned, it is through banks. We do get the hardcopy of the bill showing us the details of debits. :( I am planning to pay electricity bills also this way. :)

His fear is valid but there is nothing we will loose if someone gets copy if utility bills. I think this is really important for us to support environment so that we can get support from environment otherwise the day is not far when temperature will be unacceptable. Happy to know that you are more on electronic communication. Thanks for the response.

Get quite a few of my bills and bank statements via e-service. It is alot more convienant and saves on the junk I have to look at from the mail. I also pay most of my bills via the internet so that I can save on postage and envelopes. Little things we do can make big changes in the environment.
