How we lowered our cell phone bill from $118 to $15 AND we still have smart phones, can call or text anywhere, have no contracts, and we even kept our old phone numbers. We just got rid of AT&T for Pure TalkUSA and use our own wifi (or free wifi anywhere) instead of cell data.
We have a $15 plan and if we go over our minutes/texts, it goes to the next level, up to whatever cap we set. So it's usually $15 a month for two phones! If we're more talkative, it's $25. If we just can't shut up, then it's $35. That's still a pretty sweet savings!
When we travel, we always have our wifi with us anyway, so we don't have to go without. If we plan to be out and about and will need data, we can take the wifi, or connect at McDonalds or any hot spot. On occasion, I've taken a photo somewhere and didn't have data to be able to upload it to Facebook immediately. I survived. We've not been able to use the map app to look up a store, so we used the GPS. We found the store. At the very worst, it is a minor inconvenience. At the very best, we save $103 a month!
Pure TalkUSA has phones available or you can bring your own. They even have affordable data plans if you need to have data everywhere you go. We're just glad we realized we didn't actually need it.
If you do switch, get my number to give them when you sign up and we can get some bonus minutes. Then we can chat more. Or text. Or email. :)
To help keep our minutes down, we also have Talkatone, which is a free calling/texting app over wifi. The kids have this too, so they have regular phones when they're on wifi. When we remember to use this app and are mindful of our talk time, we easily stay under 190 minutes and pay $15. But sometimes we just throw caution to the wind and splurge up to $35, grateful that it's still a pretty great price for cell phones.
