    Cell phone plans..

    Advertisements
    DF has Nextel, I have verizon. He got his cell phone bill today and it was $657..we usually waited until free times for our long talks..we're VERY mad:mad But we think it's probably our own fault for being careless. Anyways, what service do you have? Are there deals offered for military personel? Let me know if you have any ideas because talking everynight is heaven keeps us sane!!..And we hate having to think about minutes and money when we're chatting!


    Thank you for my siggy Stacey!

    We have Sprint; it comes with free sprint to sprint, free nights and weekends, and we pay about 60 a month
    The only military deal is that they will waive a fee if you decide to cancel his plan whjile he is deployed.

    These sound much better that our situation. He has a contract with Nextel that has a huge cancellation fee. Plus his whole family(they're all veryyy close) have nextels and they 2-way eachother all the time, which is free for them. I think when his contract is up we're going to get a plan together. Did Sprint and Nextel merge?? I thought I heard that. Thanks for all your help everyone

    We have cingular and I am counting the minutes until my 2 year contract is up with them. I have had nothing but problems with them and they were shady and have done shady things. We'll be switching to verizon...

    Yeah, I've been with verizon for about 5 years, and love it. Df and I talked about him switching over to Verizon tonight..he actually brought it up and loves the idea. I didn't think he'd want to because he talks to his family(who have the same service as him) so much, but I guess he doesnt talk to them for long periods of time and it's usually after 9pm anyways. I don't know what we're going to do..but he's only in A school for about 7 or so more weeks,then off to FMSS for 7 weeks where he won't have too much time for phone calls anyways..then he'll be attached to a marine unit and he probably won't have too much phone time then either! But I just don't know if we should make the switch now or wait it out. He only has 15 months active because he's NCS(National Call to Service). Thanks everyone for your help
