Cell phone plans...
« on: February 12, 2014, 02:17:14 pm »

Never seen a topic on this before so, what cell phone/plan/company do you have and what are you paying? I'm particularly curious to what people in countries other than the U.S. are paying.

Phone: Unlocked GSM Nexus 4(paid $250 new, off contract)
Plan: AT&T Prepaid GoPhone Plan; Unlimited Talk & Text, 2gb of data(additional data is $10 per gb); $60 per month($66 after tax)

I have 2 <not> smart phones. Me and the wife.
100 minutes shared, no data, no text, no features.
Mine's an LG flip something, and the wife's is a Nokia something or other.
In a usual month, we use between 5 and 15 minutes...... total.
$55.something CDN a month is the ransom I pay to Rogers for both phones.
.... and no, even though I am quite fluent in computer, I don't own a digital mixer, either !

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

That sounds like the plan and phones we had when I was on my parent's plan in High School (Class of 2007) during my junior/senior year(I didn't have a phone before I started driving).  ;D I couldn't see myself going back now... I'll gladly pay for my smartphone as it's too convenient not to have.

Hmmm...I also have AT&T as my service provider.  Everything's the same except I have 450 rollover minutes and I pay about $40 more than you.  Time to go change my plan.

A serious difference compared to here in Northern Ireland...im on the O2 network, using a Samsung Galaxy mini which I bought a few years ago off contract. I get unlimited anytime, any network mins (basically all landlines and mobiles throughtout UK, inc Voicemail), 1GB of data, and unlimited texts for 20/month! about $33/month

2 iPhones. 850 anytime, unlimited night and weekends (which might tell you how old the plan is - circa 2005). Unlimited text and data. $145 a month us.  AT&T

Here in Australia we seem to pay a bit more. I get $350 dollars of calls and 1.5G of data and an iPhone 5S on a 24 month contract for $55 dollars a month. That's with Virgin Mobile Australia.  I do get unlimited free calls as long as I stay within the virgin network, and luckily nearly everyone I talk to is on virgin!!

Hmmm...I think I need to have a conversation with Rogers. I've the same plan...and paying about $40 more than you. 6GB data, though, but I got that part when the iPhone first came out here ($20/mo promotion). Of course, I got that plan 6 years ago, when my bill on the old plan broke $350/mo. I imagine there's better options now.

My plan in the UK on T-mobile gives me 2000 minutes to any network, 5000 texts and unlimited data for 27 / month ($44).

Brought my iPhone 5 second hand, so sim only plan.

Interestingly the cost for roaming EU calls, texts and data has recently dropped significantly which has reduced my actually monthly bill by a huge amount.
