How I Saved $3600.00 a Year on my Cell Phone Bill

Written By: Phil Davis

The business plan I have has three members: my son, my wife, and me, which is almost identical to a family plan in cost and options. I paid $385.00 a month for two Smartphones and one flip phone, including a hefty data option, which jacks up the cost. It is through AT&T.

The cost was starting to drive me crazy; I mean, that is almost a new car payment. For What? For doing something I can do free once I physically meet a person, or the email I can use from my home, if only I had some patience. But no, in today’s society we are nothing without our Smartphones, capable of hooking-up with anyone, anytime for any reason, which is usually a stupid one. How did humanity survive all these eons of time without Smartphones? Or better yet - how did we survive in the 1980’s or 90’s even?

The answer: we have been brainwashed! The telecom companies, advertising industry, and anyone else remotely associated with data or communication are getting stinking rich off of our perceived need to be in touch 24/7 and view pictures of cats, oh wait, cats are now out, it’s sloths. You may be behind the animal de jour on the internet, but sloths are coming on big. I could continue this rant for some time, so maybe I should get to the point, which is this:
I now have three Smartphones and pay only $75.00 a month for unlimited data! My new plan is even better than the old, and I have a superior new phone.

I do need a smart phone, especially while traveling, and my newfound telecom partner is defiantly my new friend. They are Republic Wireless and here is their story from their site:

Republic Wireless is a division of Bandwidth, a communications tech company that’s been around for 14 years. You might not have heard of us, but we bet you’ve heard of some of our customers. Google, Skype, Vonage - just to name a few.

So as you can see, keeping people connected is our specialty. And finding new ways to do that is what gets us up in the morning (that, and coffee). It’s our goal to give our members more than they’d imagine at a price they never thought possible. It’s what we call remarkable value.

One way we do that is by harnessing the power of the Internet to create a better way for people to experience mobile. Anything a cell network can do, the Internet can do better and cheaper.

That last sentence is the key to affordable phone and data prices. They figured out a way to use a wireless network for phone calls instead of a cell network, which is expensive. Not in a wireless area? Not a problem, a deal with Sprint means once out of a wireless connection your phone switches over to a cell tower, with no noticeable difference in quality to the connection. I have not had one dropped call and I have noticed a better call quality then my old AT&T account. Some other great features:

  • Money back Guarantee
  • No Contract
  • No roaming charges
  • No activation fee
  • Unlimited plans
  • You can switch plans twice a month
  • Plans cost from $5 - $40 a month. I picked the $25 plan.

You are required to purchase a new phone, which you will own, not lease or pay for over the life of a contract, because there is no contract. And, the phone is great; it is the all-new MOTO X from Motorola. It runs on the Android OS platform and in my opinion a better choice than Apple’s OS. Its price is $299. Again, from Republic’s site:

Moto X™ is ready when you are. It responds to your voice - no touching necessary. Twist your wrist twice, it becomes your camera, and gets the shots you'd otherwise miss. Moto X is the first smartphone ever to be designed and assembled in the USA, so it's close to you before it even gets to you. Once you turn it on, it's all yours. Just talk.

So I paid $900 bucks up front for three new Moto X phones, which will pay off in three short months, my plan for all three is $75 a month for unlimited data, text, and voice with the 3G from Sprint. For $40 a month per phone, you can get 4G, but my 3G works great. There are some small items mentioned in the service agreement, one of which may limit the speed of your data if you go over 5GB of cellular data usage a month (excluding roaming) but that is not an issue for most, 5GB is a lot of data.

The bottom line is this: do you want to save (for me $3600 a year) big money on your smart phone bill each year? For me, over 10 years that’s $36,000.00! Re-wire your brain from the dastardly brainwashing telecoms and start saving you hard-earned cash now!
