Before I actually ask my question, let me make sure it's OKAY to ask it here...
I need to reduce my bill a bit. I believe my plan is old, and would like advice on what to do. I have four phones on a plan now... and need to add another in June. The monthly bill is almost $300/mth... and that hurts.
Could someone in this forum help with advice? If so, I'll post account details and we'll go from there. THANKS!
Family & Friends 10 SmartPack 1200
Primary: Moto Droid w/ data plan (VZW)
Secondary: BB Curve w/ data plan (ALLTEL)
Tertiary: Palm Pixi Plus w/ data plan (VZW)
Quaternary: Samsung Hue (ALLTEL)
Quinary: Huawei EC168 USB cell card w/ 5GB plan (ALLTEL)
We have insurance on, I believe, three of the phones.
What I really need to do is reduce the bill a bit *overall*. I realize that adding my son's account/phone (next month) will increase the bill. However, I can't afford the current $315 + another additional $40 (or more) in fees, taxes, Lord-knows-what-else.
We were promised a 20% discount because I work for a local hospital. If that wouldn't do it, we were told that my wife being a teacher at the local high school (state employee) would warrant the discount. But, after filling out the paperwork and having a local company store fax it in, I was told by another company store that there was no such discount.
That was months ago -- and so far, NO discount has been applied to our account. UGH!
I have been with 360 Communications/Alltel/Verizon for SIXTEEN YEARS now. I realize you have to pay for your phones and the service, but let's be real. $355+ per month is REE-DICK-YOU-LUSS! That's more than the car payment on my 2009 Ford Escape XLT!!
OK, enough carping... haha! Any ideas? ... Anyone? Short of going back to dumb phones or reducing the number of lines we have...
sucks cause what is really killing you is the freaken data packages!! verizon is smart in segragating them.. unlike others you pay for all lines with a one time montly fee.. instead of each individually..
Hi VZ guys... I have a question to ask regarding going to different countries (Mexico and Europe) and using my phones (Droid and Eris). How much would be the roaming cost and is there a way to use my phones (voice and data) on these countries without having to pay an arm or a leg from roaming?
Your responses is much appreciated. Thank you.
"purchase a $30-$50 usd prepaid phone"
Probably has been asked already, but search isn't coming up with any specific hits....... Any plans to support true hands-free bluetooth vioce dialing on the Droid?
I mean with my State, and most States throughout the US, having laws about hands-free phone use while driving, I can't imagine who made such a terrible and poor decision to not have this function on the Verizon Droid phones!?!?
Any plans to add this Verizon?
