Cell phones

February 20th, 2011 at 01:47 pm

My husband and I both have iPhones that we've had for years. I've been really annoyed at AT&T because my bill is about $130 per month.

I finally decided to break with my iPhone, which kills me, but I need to get this debt paid off so I can start saving money again.

I bought us each an LG Rumor Touch phone from Virgin Mobile, and signed up for the $25 plan. Unlimited text and web, and 300 minutes of talk time. That should be fine for us since we mostly text.

This will save us about $80 per month, so the phones will pay for themselves in about two months or so.

Again, it pains me to lose my iPhone, but I downloaded Opera Mini to the new phone, and I can deal with it for $80 per month savings.

    Saving $80/mo is GREAT! Good job! Smile

    I used the Rumor Touch on VM for a few months, just to see if I would like having internet access on my phone. Nice little phone and plan that would suit most people! I ended up adding a smartphone to my Verizon line when Verizon had a promo I just couldn't resist. Smile

    Thanks. It was really hard to let go of my iPhone, but it just got to the point where I felt the sacrifice was worth it.

    I'm glad to hear you used this brand of phone for a while and liked it. I'm getting used to it, and every month that I put that $80 toward a debt, I'm sure I'll like it a little more. :-)
