AT&T/Cell Phone bill info
« on: September 12, 2011, 12:09:45 PM »
As I mentioned in another board, I recently started a new job that involves a lot more online contact, so I decided to finally get a smartphone and change my service plan a bit...


I ADDED a smartphone
I ADDED a data plan
I ADDED (doubled) the text message plan


my first bill? $20 LESS than the month before!


check your options and costs, you might find some hidden savings...

We did that when we started using our phones for work. We ended up saving $50 a month. Then, my company has an agreement with AT&T that saves me another 23%.  4 lines with unlimited TXT/MSG, unlimited mobile-to-mobile (any carrier), 2 lines have unlimited data... and we pay around $120 a month.


People who think they know it all really annoy those of us that do.

WHAT phone did you get?
WHAT data plan did you get?

I ask because I'm with ATT as well and I NEED to know.   LOL    I try to save as much money as I can.   :)

I went to AmazonWireless.com and got the LG Phoenix (Android OS) - it was .01 on their site instead of $50 from AT&T, plus you got $5 credits each for Amazon MP3, Amazon Appstore, and Kindle store, and I got the 200 MB data plan because if you can connect to a WiFi network anywhere, then it doesn't get charged to your data plan, and there are so many open wifi spots around these days. I also moved up to the 1000 texts per month. Didn't exceed my data or my txts

update - got my second month's bill with the new phone, apparently the first month's bill had the upgrade charge, because this bill was down to $81, from $98 last month, and $120 with my older, non-smart phone.

There is no way I could pay for that!  But when you say hot spot, does that mean your home internet too?

I've been keeping an eye on this site - will consider it when my daughter gets older.  Initial phone cost is high, but after that it's just $20 for unlimited everything, utilizing a fair use policy.  It relies on using WiFi more than cellular.

That seems to be a pretty good deal.   Before I would try it though, I would want to talk to someone that actually uses their service.

What phones do you have? If they're android phones there's a way to have free hot spot without paying the $30/mo

I have a droid X..... wife has the white iphone of course.... and then my 5 y/o and 9 y/o have just a basic non android phone.... I have been thinking about changing their phone to an android phone but I dont like that you dont have to enter a password before making any purchases on the android market.

If you root your DX and jailbreak her iPhone you won't have to pay for hot spot anymore. And if memory serves me right, there's a way to enable password protection on the market I just have I think/look into it.
