    We have 3 iphones in our family, and pay about $220 per month for unlimited everything. With Straightway, it appears the same cost would be $180. Does anyone use StraightTalk? What are the pros and cons?

    anyone have one that you absolutely love? dh and I do not have land line service and he has to have a cell phone for work. Verizon announced that they will start charging $2 to pay your bill with a check card over the phone. so we will be saying good-bye to them when hubby's contract is up in...
  3. Question and Answer
    I have been looking into this prepaid cell service and I would love to get some feedback on straight talk cell phones. Our contract is up in a couple of months and we don't want to renew them because they are expensive. Thank you for your thoughts.
  4. Question and Answer
    I've had high speed [email protected] internet and home phone forever, so pardon my stupid question. My home phone and net are billed together. Is there a way if I wanted to get rid of the land line to save money and still have dial up and would it be cheaper? How does that work if you don't have a phone. Is...

Scared the crap out of her, she looked to be maybe around 16 or so. Our town just lost a girl 2 weeks ago becuase of...

    Since dh got laid off we are looking at pre-paid phones so that we can get rid of our service from verizon (our contract ended in October so we won't have to pay a fee to disconnect). We are trying to figure out which ones are good. It looks like Net10 is better than Trac because of the price...

    Hello everyone! Since you helped me out so much with my "would you eat this" question, I thought I'd ask another. We live in Mass. We currently have 2 cell phones, DH (which is reimbursed through work) and mine which is added on as a family plan (9.99+tax). DH is switching his cell over to...

    Our cell phone contract will be coming up in November and looking ahead, I am considering a prepaid phone to keep our cell phone bill under control. $90.00 a month is just more than I want to spend on cell phone service and while we've been happy with our provider and this does include 3 phone...

    :doh2::sigh: I just sent my kiddos off to the store and to run some errands for me since I'm down in my back. I told them when they went out the door to turn on their cell phones in case I had to get ahold of them. Well guess what? I had to call and neither of them have their cell phones on. I...

    It's sad to think how disconnected we are even though we have cars, phones & Internet It's seems like a lot of people are so busy with work, schooling, running errands, shopping, cleaning their house or yardwork that they don't make family and friends a priority or put their hobbies/interests...

    A report [1] on a research study from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel claims they have found that human brain cells show pre-cancerous changes with as little as ten minutes exposure to cell phone radiation. These findings come at a time when a number of other recent studies suggest...

    Ok, so it wasn't that frugal. Our land line was running $30/mo. And they had to have a box plugged in inside our home (phone lines over cable...even if you don't have cable TV!). I didn't have a clue what kind of power it was using...but all the little lights were bright at night when trying...

    Our Cingular/ATT cell phone contract is up, yay!! We've been paying $80 a month for two phones (the other one has been missing for months now but we still have to pay for it ugh) that are rarely ever used, only for emergencies and very quick phone calls every few days. So I'm thinking about...

    I was just wondering who used prepaid cell phones? I do drive on the interstate 400+ miles a week, this time of year in the dark both ways to work and feel it is important to have a cell phone but being the tightwad I am I hardly ever use it. I hooked up will Alltel about 3 years ago. Cost...

    My son is going to Japan in July-- his phone with Cingulair will cost WAY too much to use over there. . any one know of a phone service that won't be out of reach. (He got married last week, and would like to be able to talk to his new wife occasionally, rather than just email, if possible)
  18. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I am curious as to whether if a cell phone account is cancelled by a cell-phone company, does this show up on your credit report? I had a cell phone closed and the bill has been paid off ( I did this recently) but since it may be to soon to show up on my credit report.

    I have had a pre-paid cell phone for about a year now and I love it. I have saved hundreds of $$'s. Since I don't use my cell except to say "I'm on my way" etc. I have found that I am better of financially, with my pre-paid as opposed to my old monthly service cell phone. With pre-paid I buy a...
