i'm sad. so my husband got family health insurance and starting june 1st he will have weekly deductions of 130dollars. Before my daughter had healthy families but my husband hated it and hated it that I wasnt insured either-he was. So he added us and now I have to find ways to cut our bills. So im downgrading our phones. Right now, we pay 170 for 2 phones which is hefty. I can't leave because I have a contract so I'm just going to do the minutes with unlimited texting plan. I will miss coming on cafemom on my phone lol.

We switched from verizon to straight talk to cut down our cell phone bill.  The money we saved in just 2 months paid for our contract cancellation fee.  I get unlimited talking and text for $45 a month.

And you get a smart phone.

Also. .. aboutface shoppers have the opp to get a simple phone with texting. They will pay for 6 months of service and the phone.

I'm sorry. .. health insurance is worth it!

Insurance is soooooo important.  Honestly, one accident and you'd be sunk financially. 

You can do it.

All I can say is that we were on Verizon and I down graded my phone - they said I would save $50 a month and I thought it would be worth it. Come to find out when we got our bill they only really took $15 off and refused to fix it. I was pissed.

We left Verizon and went to T Mobile and now have 2 smart phones for less than we had 1 smart phone & 1 reg. phone from Verizon.

That sucks, we may have to downgrade our phones too.

 Boo! That bites, but you do what you gotta do. I for one prefer coming here on my laptop to my phone - the phone screen is just too small, lol.
