My work phone bill is paid for by the company, but I have to pay for the phone (though we can use the upgrade system). My personal phone, when I used it was about $25 a month on ting. Thinking about changing it to project Fi (google).

I left AT&T last year and went with T-Mobil and I'm very happy with it. I mainly switched because of the international plan is much better but now I like it because it works good enough to run my firestick at the lease between LLano and Brady while AT&T is sorta good there and no Verizon at all. I think my bill is 80 a month unlimited everything and no extra charge in Canada or Mexico.

Because ive called and chewed on them, was leaving to another carrier and they offered the bigger plan plus discounts to stay. Have to escalate the call to a manger, the cust service reps cannot offer discounts like the managers can.

If you buy your phone outright you should be able to get unlimited everything for under $100 for a single line. I pay $88 for a Sprint unlimited plan. I've gotta beleive some of these figures are so high because the prices of the phones are figured in, Just because you're eleigible for an upgrade doesn't mean you need to, or should. Thats where they get ya.

I pay 70 a month for one line with ATT for unlimited. phone is paid for. There are 9 dollars in fees which is ridiculous. They told me you cant get a discount on the unlimited plans with ATT since they are already price so "competitively". The fees are what kill me. There are at least 15-20 listed out that are a few cents to 10-15 cents a piece.

Verizon - 3 lines, 10 gigs of shared data, unlimited talk and text, no phone leases, $155 with work discount. no way we could ever use that much data even if we tried.

I NEVER ran out of data (never even close) until Verizon rolled out there "new unlimited" data plan a few years back... then I started running out every month, they would send a message something to the effect: you are out of data, upgrade now to our new unlimited plan to avoid overage charges.

I had SEVERAL years (10+) of history with them to show that I had never gotten close to what they were pegging me for and they basically didn't care. So I moved providers and couldn't be happier.

I 100% expect to get a check for a few bucks in the mail in a few years, after they've been spanked with a class action suit for mis-calculating data usage, or using fake data overages to increase costs unjustly. There is no reliable way to monitor your data usage your self, the same company that monitors it is the same company that benefits if you go over... HMMMMM...

Unfortunately these days it doesn’t pay to be loyal to any particular company. Me and my wife recently switched insurance companies after every year having noticeable increases and now we save about $340 a month. And what makes it worse is the agency keeps bugging to know what they can do to get our business back. We tell them you had years to try and keep it but they kept bending us over. Now we plan on shopping around every couple of years depending on the premium increase.
