    Default cell phone WWYD?

    I am thinking of cancelling my cell phone to save myself 60 bucks a

    month. Dh has a phone that is only $25.00 a month and has plenty of

    minutes for what I need. He has a work cell so he really doesnt need

    the extra one. Does anyone know what it costs to cancel your contract?

    I know it is pricey but thinking it might be worth it in the long run.

    WDYT?

    Each plan has a different price, and it also depends on if you signed a

    contract for some period of time. So check out your specific contract.



    You may also call up your cell phone company and tell them that you

    plan to switch as soon as possible.



    Then tell them that you thought you'd see if they could make it so

    you'd want to stay. Have some advertised deals you can quote to them. I

    did that and got my monthly rate reduced about 30 percent.

    There is a website (sorry don't know what it is) that will buy your contract

    from you and then sell it to someone else. Check with your provider to see

    what the terms are for your specific contract, who knows, it just might be

    no fee. Good luck!

    Thank you! I called and they want $200.00 to cancel the contract YIKES!

    They did offer me a 15% discount but that doesnt seem like much of a deal.

    I am torn.

    The fee to cancel service is $175 to $200, depending on whatcell phone company you have. I have T-mobile and I love the service they give me.........My son also has T-mobile. He lost his job last year and wanted to eliminate his cell bill but could not afford the cancel fee. T-mobile did let him switch to the least expensive plan they have. He was very happy with that. He still was able to have a cell phone for in case of emergencies, and at a cost he could afford. Best of all, he was able to keep his number that he had had for years. Ask your cell company what they can do for you. I've had several carriers, and in terms of service, I've found T-mobile to be the best in working with me to make me happy.

    I agree—I am a T-Mobile fan !!!

    like that if you have CONTROL over
    your plan—if you decide that one plan is not enough minutes or too much,
    you can go one way or another

    You can also transfer a PREPAID T-mobile
    account phone to a regular account. (they don’t tell you—but its an
    added bonus!! If yu find you want to upgrade from prepaid etc)



    Without a complaint. Even if you are on
    the edge of your minutes,went over, --and want to upgrade for the month to
    avoid those OVER LIMIT FEES. Been there done that. They were very helpful. All
    my family is on T-Mobile. We also of course have free mobile to mobile/free
    weekends/and after 9 free They have good upgrade specials too. we have a
    2,000 minute family plan for $139, I believe. (only $10 for 3<sup>rd</sup> line
    for daughter)

    I am especially a loyal customer because
    my husband has a rare illness that causes amnesic episodes

    And when he went missing, they were even
    able to help police help search within a 2 mile radius, because they could tell
    me where the signal was coming from.

    (towers are between 2-7 miles apart,
    depending on city,etc and are numbered or have addresses)

    anyhow, they just went the extra mile for
    us and we were even able to temporarily freeze service up to a few months at NO
    CHARGE!! And not go against you in contract. (that could’ve been done at
    no charge for your son)

    The number one thing I detest about cell phones is the 2 year contract in order to get the best prices.

    If your service is so great, why do you feel the need to FORCE people to stay for 2 years???? Why not just offer great service and let people CHOOSE to stick around with a company they are pleased with?

    I know you can get 1 year contracts, but in this area, they usually cost a whole lot more plus the cost of the phone. Pay as you go costs a lot because the little cards run down, even when you are not talking, as they expire.

    Default cell phone WWYD?

    sorry tmobile I have to disagree but then again alot of people disagree

    with me too LOL. To each their own. I had cingulair and they weren't bad. 175

    was the fee when we changed providers with 9 months left on our contracts but I

    negotiated that down to 75 for two phones and 2 months of service that

    overlapped because we had trouble with the phones and the replacements they sent

    us were duds as well.....I have had a ton of problems with motorola phones

    especially battery life that has always been my biggest pet peeve with phones --

    I love Nokia phones and LG aren't too bad usually either except for the

    chocolate which tends to devour its battery life .

    Hubby works for verizon so I am a bit biased toward them especially since he

    gets his line free and my line and MILs line ( we share lines on his employee

    plan are 40 for two phones and that includes mobile web, vcast unlimited

    internet and messaging, navigator (GPS) all the bells and whistles......service

    is outstanding and so is signal strength. Hubby was even asked by the DM to

    look for areas near our home that have weak or dead zones so they can add towers

    to improve service . they are actually the company that FEMA uses after

    disasters to give red cross workers
