I've had the same cell phone plan for 11 years. That's right, 11 years. The reason I like the plan, is it charges 25 cents per minute . Plus roaming and long distance. Which can cost 80 cents a minute. Which is a lot unless you only use this phone every other month for 3-5 minutes. Then it's a real good deal.
So I've been paying $2-6 phone bills on average.
Then Cingular decided to pull the plug on the network. So as an incentive, they would throw in a free phone if I would pay them $30 a month. Hmmmmm. I don't think so.
So starting 3 months ago, they are charging me an extra $6 / month. Just because. When I called about it, I was told it was legal because they told me about it on one of my phone bills.
Dumping Cingular doesn't bother me. Their arrogance has already cost them two of my other phone lines (which lost them $3,000 / year). But what really bugs me is we have this old color motorola flip phone with a metal case. (from the ATT wireless days). The call quality is superb.
Does anyone make a high call quality phone? Please tell me if you know of one.
