Default Who's idea was $100 phone bills?

So I gotta pay ~$150 for the droid phone PLUS about +/-$100 a month?!!

And I thought $40/month land line was bad.

You have a smart-phone, that's about par for the course.

I pay about $140 or so for 2 iphones.

Sounds about right. I pay 99.25 every month. It sucks, ya, but it's worth it, IMO.

I refuse to pay $1200 a year for a mobile phone. It would have to be so smart that I wouldn't have to think anymore.

When you put it that way, it's ridiculous.

Glad I don't pay for ****.

I pay 50AUD a month for mine. Gets me $300 worth of calls and txt and 2gb of data, Facebook and emails are unlimited data. Little light in data, but I'd never use 2gb of data on my mobile. Phone was free on that plan.
