Since the majority of adults find themselves dealing with the predicaments
covered in this article, it is greatly appreciated. It's especially
helpful to know how to avoid or at least trim the monthly fees. It is great to
know that most of the major cellphone providers charge about $20 a month for
unlimited text messaging, but there's also a way around that fee. Consumers
with iPhones or Androids can bypass the monthly texting bill by downloading the
Textfree app, according to Kiplinger. The app lets users send and receive text
and picture messages for free over a Wi-Fi or data connection. That will save
$240 a year. Thank you for a very helpful article.
Great information! Everybody needs to be aware of whatever ways are possible to
save on texts and other fees involved in changing providers.
We're being scammed by cell phone companies. They could make a profit off
of us if they only charged 10 dollars per month per line with talk and
text...yet when I went to sign up for an I-phone and a couple of other lines
they wanted $200 per month in fees. I just couldn't bring
myself to do it. They don't need to make that much profit off of us. I mean
really...I could lease a new car for that much, and it could come with a built
in phone for around $12 month (on-star).
You can have cell phone service for about $6.50 a month if you get a tracfone
and buy the 90 day cards on sale. No contracts. Doesn't work so good
for chronic chatters, texters, and surfers, but works fine if you only want to
send or receive a call once or twice a day or so.I can wait till I get home to
surf, or just hang around free wi-fi joints with my kindle fire.
Cell phones are a luxury item. You can save even more by cutting them out of
your life entirely.
Not everybody can cut them out - many people need them for work, including smart
phones. And while employers want you to have it, and expect you to, that
doesn't mean they are willing to pay for it.
