Cellular is ridiculously priced, and they make you think you’re getting a bargain by keeping minutes you’d never used to begin with. How many people have hours of rollover minutes that they’ll never use?

I gave up over 10,000 rollover miutes when I left AT&T for the cheaper TracFone. When I asked them for a cheaper plan they said I already had their cheapest plan. AT&T was costing me $75-80 a month for it's 2 line $59.99 a month plan.

With TacFone double minutes I only need to buy air time every 4 months. Over a year's time I figure I'll save at least half over AT&T.

My wife and son and I all have phones on their AutoPay plan. We all got phones that have the Double Minutes for Life option. My wife gets 100 minutes a month (50 min doubled). I get 60 minutes a month (30 min doubled) and my son gets 60 min a month (30 min doubled). They’re added automatically, so we have to do nothing.

Our phone bill for a month on all three is less than $25 a month. I never run low on minutes, but when my wife does (haha!) she just grabs my son’s phone instead.

All three phones can text, and I can even do limited email type stuff, but none have web, chat, or anything like that. Not that I wouldn’t like that, because it would be so awesome to browse Freerepublic from anywhere I was. I’d also like to tether my phone to my Netbook to share the connection....

Alas. Someday, when the price drops. If only more people were like me!
