I have a cell phone, but it's T-mobile prepaid, I put on maybe $20 worth of minutes a year since I'm a Gold Rewards member and my minutes last for a year every time I add them.
I do the exact same thing with T-mobile pre-paid for myself and I pay $15/month for my son's unlimited T-mobile pre-paid text plan (teens don't talk on phones any more, just text).
$20/12month + $15/month is less than $17/month for two cell phones. I would like to know how you can get cheaper than Mediacom unlimited phone at $29.99/month + $17/month two cell phones. For $47/month you couldn't even get one decent smart phone plan.
If anyone wonder how I can get by with so few minutes on the cell phone, the answer is google voice. I only give out my google voice # and any calls are answered on my work phone or home phone when ever I am located there. My SMS messages are sent to my email and an application on my google chrome browser at no cost.
