Wireless Waste: What’s Eating Your Wallet?

Do you know all about wireless waste facts? When you know all the ins and outs of cell phones, it’s easier to choose a plan that will work for you. Get the facts about cell phones, and learn how to conquer your monthly cell phone bill.

  • Fact: Nearly 80% of wireless consumers pay a monthly fee that’s too high. What can you do about this problem? Make sure to choose a plan that includes all the little extras such as nights, weekends, and basic texting features. Take a look at the plans that T-Mobile offers – this wireless company has recently re-launched and re-priced its cell phone plans to offer greater flexibility and affordability.

Question: What costs wireless subscribers 600% to 2000% more than they

expected to pay? The answer: Overage minutes. Minutes beyond your plan package can exponentially drive up monthly wireless prices and oftentimes, you won’t know it until you get your bill. The good news is that you can avoid paying any large overage minute charges by carefully selecting your plan and monitoring your minute usage. Choose a carrier that offers a variety of plans and an integrated app for keeping track of your remaining minutes (AT&T has an official app for iPhone, BlackBerry and other smartphones).

  • Fact: Most people don’t use in-plan minutes. In addition, most people don’t actually use the paid “peak minutes” that they purchase. The solution to this problem is simple – only purchase minutes that you will actually use. Otherwise, choose a flexible carrier that offers many different options such as Verizon.
  • Fact: A seemingly straightforward $99 plan can reach up to $130 per month. Once additional fees are added to a cell phone plan, your monthly bill can become unaffordable. In order to avoid unforeseen charges, make sure to ask your carrier about any additional charges prior to purchasing a wireless plan. This way, you can be sure that you know exactly what to expect at the end of each month. When it comes to straight answers, Sprint may be a good bet – their Simply Everything Plan makes it easy to keep track of what you are paying for.

Wireless plans may have lots of hidden fees, added costs, and aspects that you didn’t originally consider, but that doesn’t mean that you have to become part of a wireless statistic. Instead, take your wireless plan into your own hands by shopping around for the best phone carrier to suit your individual needs.
