Me: Why must I have to pay $180 a month for 2 smart phones?

At*t: Well sir you can't have the 3gig data plan a month unless you have unlimited talk and text.

Me: WTF man are you serious I only need it for work I don't even call anyone I just need to be able to access email and large PDF files .

At*t :Yes sir I'm dead serious

Me: I'm leaving! (as I start to leave) How do you pricks get any business?!
At*t : Don't worry Sir you'll be back they always come back. (Muahahahahahahahah Jk he didn't really do an evil laugh)

If only that Metro PCS didnt suck, i'd be all over it. What sucks is my cellie # has been tied to my business for 9 yrs now, so i have little way out..

It is ridiculous that $200 of your earnings a month goes to a phone company.

I pay about $15 a month. If smartphones are so smart, why can't they figure out how to make themselves cheaper?

$200? I have an iPhone with unlimited data plan and it costs me about a hundred.

It isn't rape if it is consensual.

I'm glad I don't have a cellphone.
I can't afford them.

Wow... I pay $94 a month for two phones with unlimited talk and text, but no data.

It would cost me 45 more a month for data... no thanks.

I'll live in the dark age.

This is something science fiction almost never deals with. Amazing technology with crippling costs.

Why do they charge so much? It's simple - we let them. Not that I think I'm above it, my phone bill is $80. I'm lucky enough to have gotten Verizon's unlimited data plan before it ended but I'm sure they'll find a way to get me out of it someday.

Of course, this is a first world problem so it's hard to feel bad for us.

My wife and I do around $120 for both of our iPhones with unlimited data on AT&T, we're pretty content with that.

Posted on Feb 21, 2012 10:59:32 AM PST
~$79 and grandfathered in for unlimited data with Verizon. Definitely not feeling raped but they are at least trying to touch me in a place I'm not comfortable with.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 21, 2012 11:00:02 AM PST
Yeah, I really didn't factor in my wife's plan. Very good point, sir.

Try T Mobile.

I pay 68 bucks a month after taxes for 400 minutes and unlimited text/data.

They have the new umlimited everything plan for 49.99 per line.

Amazon Ninja says:
Your right why should I pay for this. I would rather have tons of dropped calls than have to pay 3times the amount. Just think of all the video games I could afford with that money.

Posted on Feb 21, 2012 11:11:25 AM PST
I'm looking over my plan at verizon's webpage and apparently I don't get my work discount on text's, those cheap mofo's making me spend the full $10 on 500 texts.
