I Dumped my Cell a Year or so Ago
If I was still traveling for a job, a $100 a month cell phone might be warranted, but I certainly won't pay that kind of money for a personal cell phone.
We were paying $66 a month for two phones. I dumped mine as the usage was 7 to 15 minutes a month and my wife switched to a pay as you go $20 a month 400 minute plan. I might switch that to a $20 for 90 days 200 minute plan as she only uses 50 or 60 minutes a month.
The world seems obsessed with cell phones. In the UK people on the subway watch for their bars as the train comes out of the underground tunnel. They are all commuters and they know that there are no bars until the same point every day, yet they still check their cell phones at the last underground station. At least they don't drive with a cell phone stuck in their ear like every other car here in NY.
We went to Italy last year and they are just as bad. I am sure that 99% of all conversations are worthless anyway.
Sure, I am going to pay $100 a month to get a message from the wife to pick up friggin lettuce and milk on the way home.
