Okay, to take some pressure of my husband I decided to be the primary bill payer (him just be in the loop but not actully scheduling payments and stuff).
So I'm getting everything organized... I noticed our cell phone bill was $219!!! I was like "HOLY MOLEY!!! WTF?!?!?" I knew it couldn't be paid until this coming Friday and didn't have much time to review it thoroughly so I threw it back in the stack for next time. Well today I'm going over our average monthly bills because we're about to buy a house and OMG the stinkin cell phone bill is ALWAYS this high!!!
We have Nextel which is known for being high.... but my hubby "uses two-way" for work (but somehow he only used 50 two way minutes durring peak hours last month..... must not be that crucial). So his work pays $50 toward the cell phone bill because it is used for work a lot. I like to use two way too but I had no idea it was costing us this much!!!!!
Here's what our plan includes-
1500 peak minutes to share between the two of us and nights starting at 7:00 instead of 9:00 - $90 (I kid you not)
Unlimited mobile to mobile - $5
Web service- $5
repair plan- $4
250 extra minutes (because we ALWAYS go over 1500)- $25
That's $129 JUST for the cell phone.... not including the extra charges and text messaging charges etc.....
Then there's the wireless wifi internet... add on $70+ per month.... and it's not a GREAT connection either...
I called him right then and there and told him we HAD to get rid of nextel IMMEDIATELY!!! Internet and everything..... it is insane to pay $200 for internet and cell phone use!!
Sorry... just had to vent!!!!!!!!!!
