Time to drag this bad boy up from the depths...
Well, I'm looking to upgrade my cell phone (hopefully before C3 even).
Currently, my wife and I each have a phone and we have the cheapest plan you can get - 30 min per month, no long distance, no frills - just $10 a month for each phone. The only reason we have the phones now is for roadside assistance / emergencies. They are nice to have in case you break down on the road, lock yourself out, whatever.
Lately, we've both been using our phones more often especially during the summer when we are out and about trying to meet up with friends. I know that we would both use them even more if we had a better plan, so we've kind of decided to ditch the home phone (long distance and all) and go the wireless route.
I mean, if for $60 a month we can have 2 wireless phones that I can use anywhere with 450 minutes, why the heck am I paying $40 plus Long Distance each month to Qwest instead? Just so telemarketers can bug me? It's not like we need the landline for Tivo or anything (since we don't have Tivo) and I can switch from DSL to Cable for the modem/internet.
So, I guess what I want to know is...
Anyone else ditch the land line in favor of going wirelss at home?
Anyone have a "cellular telephone" that they just LOVE having?
Can anyone recommend Verizon over T-Mobile over Cingular?
