Ditching Landline. What's the Cheapest Cell?
I'm trying to figure out whether ditching my landline and buying a cell would lower my bill. I have never had a cell before. Right now, with the caller ID feature, I pay $36.00/month for my landline service. This includes a flat fee for long distancee of about $2.00/month; I pay the actual long distance calls per minute over the flat fee.
Since most of my work is done over e-mail, I rarely talk on the phone. I make perhaps 2-3 phone calls per week, tops, and they are in the 1-3 minute range, usually making appointments or such. I almost never use long distance although I want it to be there for an emergency (ie. illness or emergency at my parents, etc). I want a very basic cell phone. Given this information, is a prepaid, no contract cell phone what I should be looking for? If not, what? And can you please give me specific information on what phones to look for? Thanks.
