We've been with T-Mobile ever since Cliff got his first cell phone. In order to cut costs, we recently stopped service on our land line because we were using our cell phones all the time anyhow.
With Cliff's retirement approaching, I've been looking at more ways to make all our bills cheaper. We had two of Cliff's sisters on our T-Mobile account, so we had them get their own account a while back. That trimmed twenty bucks off the total, but our bill was still $84 monthly. That's too much.
I called customer service and asked if there was any way we could trim the bill further. The lady told me we could cut our minutes down to 750 instead of 1,000 and that would save us $10. OK, that would make it $74; still not acceptable, in my opinion.
However, if I do away with my phone so that Cliff is the only one with a cell phone, we could get it down to $39 monthly with 500 minutes, or $49 if we keep 750 minutes.
I don't talk on the phone that much anyhow, and with Cliff retired, I don't see a problem with using his cell if I need to talk to someone.
I think that's probably the best solution.
