The phone has always been a frustrating bill for me. I do have a cell phone and I have gone back and forth on getting rid of the home phone, but since hubby does not have a cell it would actually be more expensive for us to get rid of it. All we need is a phone line out in case something happens and my cell is not available.
There are a few options for a cheaper phone bill though!
TMobile has an option where you can get unlimited nationwide calling for only $10 a month! I am not sure if any of the other cell companies offer similar deals or not – please let me know if the company you use has a home phone program and I’ll add it to this list.
Magic Jack is another great option. Right now they have a free 30 day trial. If you like it then it costs $39.95 for one year (that’s $3.30 a month) or $59.90 for two years (that drops it to $2.50 a month). It is worth a try – if it works then it will save you a ton of money, if it does not then you don’t have to pay a thing!
