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.
