Ways to save on cell phone service

Ways to save on cell phone service

Picking the perfect plan

(WWLP) - Owning a cell phone doesn't have to break the bank.

The president of Family Wireless said it's all in selecting the right plan for your needs. Here are some tips:

"Follow your friends"--Many companies offer free mobile-to-mobile calling if everyone's using the same carrier.

They also say to "trim the fat"--getting rid of add-ons you might not need, like roadside assistance.

Consider a texting package. It may cost you five or six bucks, but if you send or receive more than 100 text messages a month, you'll end up paying twice that.

Of course some cell phone users opt not to have a monthly bill and instead use pre-paid phones where you buy new minutes as you need them.
