high cost cell phone data plans
Currently, we have just basic phones with 700 anytime minutes and unlimited text plan. This plan has served us (my family of 4) very well for the past several years. We don't use that many minutes and kids mostly text.
The problem I have now is my 15yr old daughter needs a new phone, and there are very few choices of basic phones available through my carrier. I guess because data plans and smart phones are where the real money is, LOL.
So I shopped for a new plan and to my surprise the lowest cost family data plan would be $210/month plus tax/fees! My current plan cost us $116/month, so we're talking about a $100/month increase to my cell phone bill.
I know my age is showing, and some would say just fork over the dough. But does anyone else find these high cost plans a little difficult to swallow? My co-worker told me they are paying $240/month.
So that's my rant. Thanks for listening.
