Check those bills!
Mom dropped her long distance from her phone over a year ago. Long d. connection fees are about $5 per quarter. I was at her house the other day and asked her what her phone bill was and she said around $23 (she wants to get caller ID and we were deciding what it would cost). She handed the latest bill to me. That bill was over $28 and I pointed it out to her. Turns out she was charged for long distance. She called the phone company and they told her she had had long distance all along. My smart Mom got out her expense book and went back the following year and the charges were all the same. So I would keep your eyes open if I were you if you drop your long distance to save money. They might just connect you back. Kathy_PA
