Would you spend $99 monthly for your cell service?

I can't do that to spend $99 for my cell service monthly. That is outrageous. The truth and the fact is that I don't want to chat a lot over something trivial over the phone; and I don't text a lot, in case something important. For me, I only pay around $50 monthly, because I choose Boost Mobile with data plan and talk all you want without a contract. In contrast, my friend paying $99 for sprint, and she said she got all the service for a single line. Well, maybe she got all these application she can use on her cell. What about you? What is your price limit over the cell phone monthly service?

No i will not. As cell services in my country are very cheap. Even in this amount we can run our cell for an year with out much control. Even i could make enough long distance calls also. And get nearly 500 texts free for daily throughout the year. So we are enjoying the cell services at very low cost.

Although it may not be for everybody, it does work for other people. I have t-mobile as my service provider & before they came out with the plan I'm on, I was paying litle over $120/month. Now I'm paying about $80/month for pretty much the same plan. I use my phone for work purpose as well & if I didn't have the plan I have now, I couldn't afford a cell phone. On an average, I use 2,500 - 3,000 minutes a month. I would be paying too much on overages. I used to have Nextel few years ago & it worked for most places but few of the place where I really needed a phone, it didn't. I know boost mobile works off of (former) nextel towers. I'm basically paying about $30/month more for similar plan but I'd rather pay that much more to know my cell phone's gonna work rather than paying $30 less & my phone not work in places I needed it to...

I spend about that per month for my phone, but that covers two lines, plus unlimited text messaging for my line (the primarry line). I think that's a good deal for two people. I don't feel that is too overally bad all points considering. Since its two lines. Now for one line that's robbery.

I could also see that kind of amount for just a single line and it is very common for the postpaid or the one with the contract especially if the phone is very subsidized but the monthly fee is already too high. But I must say that I would also spend like that especially for the very fast unlimited data if the network is already a 4G one or something just like the wi-max.

I am actually paying more than $100 a month, but I do have the money, so I pay it. I don't have to pay all thattha much for my bills, as I make more than what I am paying out, so that is good as well. It wasn't always that way though, as up until March, I was struggling very badly. I couldn't see my way out of it and I thought I would never be able to pay my bills without struggling, but since I got myself out of the hole I was in, I don't intend to go back and dig another one. I had almost maxed my credit cards out, and I don't intend to do that again. It wasn't all my fault either. My daughter had put money on my card, and has as yet to pay me back, but she will in time, I hope. Anyway, I am doing much better now, and I am much happier than I was. Take care, and happy mylotting.
