    My Trac Phon costs $11 a month, automatically deducted from my debit card. Gives me 120 minutes a months and text. I have a $20 a month emoticon landline and only use my cell when I am out so this is the phone for me.

    the only phone I have ever had is a track phone , we don't even have cable, but we do have netflicks. I don't miss cable and the high priced phones.

    I really need to get on this. I threatened to leave my phone company a few months ago, so they give me a $10 credit every bill cycle. It still leave me at about $35 - $40 per month and I don't even used the phone that much. Just to call and text. Now I'm dyiiiiiing to switch. $20 every 2 months? $10 a month?! How can I not?

Thanks for the advice.

    I've been with TracFone for as long as I've ever had a cellphone, but now my mom is switching me out to another service that offers a limited amount of free data for life on an Android cell.

    Good job everyone, I use Consumer Cellular for a Smart Phone @ $18.75 a month. Want to drop my land line phone, but house alarm is tied into it, but pretty much land phone cost is negligible, about $9 a month.
HAPPY SAVING!

    Me too! I do the rest of my communicating on the computer during the day, so why pay for a redundancy?
