Cost Basic service plans are comparable to average landline phone bill. However, major billing sore points for cell phone customers are roaming charges and over minutes charges. The average customer has really gotten used to 5 cents, 7 cents and 10 cents per minutes charges on their landline long distance bills. Cell phone carriers can charge 35 cents or 45 cents each minute over your anytime allowance. It's always better to have too many cell phone minutes rather than too few. The extra $10 or $20 for a plan with more anytime minutes is a much better option than a $180 cell phone bill at end of month.
Also, see if there is a plan available minimizes roaming charges. Roaming charges in some areas can be as high as 65 cents per minute. You can minimize your roaming charges in one of two ways:
Get a plan with no roaming charges. Another option is to get plan that alerts you when you are roaming and gives you option to not send or receive calls. If you are Sprint PCS customer, you will receive an alert on your cell phone when you receive a call and you are roaming. Change your plan if needed, but get one that maximizes your usage time and minimizes your extra costs.
If you get a great service, minimize your extra charges and avoid roaming fees, making switch from a landline to a cellular phone is a great option.
