Smart Phones in our Future?

For reference, we pay $55/month for our dumb phones, and I refuse to pay extra for texting, on principal. The prices are such a rip.

I felt the same way when cell phones first came out. We waited a *long* time to get phones.

Even with our $55/month cell phone plan, I am not overly thrilled with it. IT works for us because we never go over our minutes or anything like that. They are just waiting for you to slip up once and POUNCE!! It's not an industry I am thrilled to support.

So *this* is what we have been waiting for.

I don't think we will sign up tomorrow or anything, but I think it's long overdue to get a company that is going to stick it to the big monopolies in this way. I am excited to see it! Competition is sure to follow. I just think it's a good sign.

I am sure we will be early adopters compared to many of you - we live in tech central and are very techie, so would like to jump on the bandwagon. Just don't want to go broke doing so.

    Uh, whoa! Looks like it could be almost as affordable as our 3 prepaids...

    We have a lot of minutes left on our phones, but maybe we'll start thinking about it as our minutes wind down...

    Guilty. We have smart phones. Both The Husband and I.

    BUT...

    We have an enormous corporate discount for them from my husband's employer.

    We have the cheapest plan possible and never go over.

    We both use them for work when we can't get to a wired computer.

    We upgraded to the smart phones at a point in our contract when they were free.

    We have unlimited talking between our six phones and unlimited texting to anyone.

    We made the choice that it was worth it to spend money on them. We cut out other things to make up for the cost.

    And it's really a pretty amazing deal for us. Our kids all have cell phones (though not smart phones) and for our 2 smartphones and their 4 regular phones we pay about $130 a month. We're okay with that!

    Wow! I just don't know if I could ever give up my iPhone ... android phones/apps just are not the same.

    I do have to say that I am tempted .. I'd have to keep my service with AT&T active though for at least a month to make sure it worked well here (because I'd hate to lose my grandfathered status on my rates if the coverage turned out to s&ck) and I'd have to buy a phone to try it out ... so it might take a year or more to see any significant savings.

    I am tempted ...
