FML - The follow-up

Today, I realized I pay $160/month to get two texts a day. One from my bank telling me how much I have, one for my credit card telling me how much I owe. FML

Okay, first off, I am a women. As for the fml, I was complaining that I pay such a high price to get those two texts a day and the occasional phone call from my employer to cover a shift. Expensive paper weight is what it is and I'm stuck in a contract. With the debate on price, yes, very expensive. I get unlimited text as well as calling (god knows what for), and 1 gig of data which I never use up since I'm almost always in wifi. I do in fact have somebody on my plan with me but that only add

2, I agree the price seems outrageous. If OP lives in a rural area, usually plans are more expensive. Let's say OP got an unlimited everything plan for $99.99, $14.99 for phone insurance, $20 for the internet on a smart phone, and the rest would be state taxes. You'd be surprise how quickly it adds up. I think that it is extremely expensive but there are always extra fees for a cell plan.

That's a bit ridiculous. Where I live, our family plan cost $180 with everyone owning smart phones... Our individual plan that our provider has: $60 unlimited everything, $10 smartphone internet and then warantee is $10-30 depending what kind and for how long you want the warantee.

America all seems a bit pricey to me - I pay £22 (c. $30?) a month for unlimited texts + internet, 600 minutes and insurance for my smartphone, and I definitely live in a rural area. I use a Samsung not an iPhone though which I guess explains some of the price difference..

I pay £20 a month for my galaxy s3 with 1gb Internet, 5000 texts, 500 minutes and 5000 minutes to anyone on the same network. I've never gone over. It really is expensive in America.

I'm in Canada, which has notoriously expensive cell services, and even then I spend $55 for unlimited talk across Canada, unlimited text anywhere in the world, 1gig of data, visual voicemail, call display, call waiting, and I pay $5/500mb if I go over my Internet (which doesn't happen often). This sounds crazy expensive. And not being able to afford it means it's time to trim the plan down to nothing, or get a pay-as-you-go.

There is no reason for you to ever be spending that much. Not even having unlimited everything costs that much. Do away with the unlimited texts and perhaps get rid of the internet off your phone since it's not that great anyway and adds a lot of extra money to your bill.
