Hubby and I have had att for a couple of years. We got it when I was working and able to help pay for the bill. Im a sahm now and have been since I was 21 weeks pregnant with my son (preterm labor and bed rest made me have to quit my job) who is now 19 months. The bill is $250/month for two phones and internet. We are downgrading. Getting rid of the "smart" phones and getting a landline with internet and cable. We haven't had cable for almost a year. This cell phone has become such an addiction for me. Im constantly checking cm and fb. I have caught myself ignoring my children at times because im too busy on my damn phone. Smh. Im really happy about this. We will have the internet so we will still have access to the internet but i wont be able to sit on my ass and play on my phone all day. That's an exaggeration, but that's how i feel. This may seem small to most but this is going to be huge for me. Im going to be a better mother and spend more time with my kiddos.

The best part is how much we are saving. Its going to be $99/month for the first year then $144/month after. That plus the Straight Talk phone hubby is getting so we have a mobile phone for road trips is still cheaper than what we were paying.

I haven't had a land line phone in years!!

 I never got a smart phone, I really never saw the need for them.  My husband has one because he is away from home all of the time, but I don't need it.

I wish I would have never gotten it.

I don't know if I could do it. But we have our ATT phones though my husband's awesome parents. So we have to pay $90 for two smart phones and unlimited everything. We also have U-verse and internet through ATT, which is $119 a month for the second highest internet speed and the U300 package. So about $210 for everything.

Which is great because before we were paying $180 for our phones, then $88 for internet, then $80 for TV, all through different people. So $348 before. And the internet wasn't as fast, even though it was rated at a higher speed. And we now have twice as many channels as we did before. So yay. :D
