    Units??

    Over here they are generally given as minutes of free calls (peak/off-peak/cross network) and number of texts (sms/mms)

    i use about 300 - 400 off-peak minutes and about 300 texts

    I live 300 miles away from my girlfriend

    Yeah, not sure about units...

    I spend about $40 a month for my phone which gives me $129 worth of calls/sms etc.

    I use between 700-800 minutes of my 1000 minutes a month plan. Most of that gets used for work, which the do reimburse me for.

    about 200 - 250 minutes a month of my 450 a month, but the 250 doesn't include night/weekend minutes or mobile to mobile, which is most of my minutes

    250 / 60 = 4.167 hours

    oh yeah, good thing i have roll-over :)

    You're my hero, seriously. :)

    I use up around 3-5 hours per month. Not too much. Do you use Skype?

    Zero here too.

    When I had a cell phone, it was usually about 250 minutes/mo. 0 Text messages.

    I love not having a cell phone :)

    Probably only 2-3 hours, but with anywhere form 300-500 text messages.

    Business emails sent from my website hit my phone, but those are all included on my plan.

    I'm not sure exactaly how many I use, but I would guess around 30 minutes + free calls to other people with sprint, and nights/weekends.

    Put me in with the other zero's :p

    I am only 20 but everyone my age seems to have a cell phone. It really seems to annoy people when they ask for my cell number and when i tell them I don't have one they just stare. And i know for a fact that people call my landline and never leave messages even though they want to talk to me.

    Everyone that knows me thinks it is weird that I don't have a cell phone seeing as I am huge into tech.

    Oh well, I actually really like not being able to be contacted every five minutes.

    I use prepaid and have been on the same ~$24 USD recharge for like 3-4 months now. :p Calls to other prepaid customers with this company is free (up to 300 minutes), and since all my friends use prepaid with this company, it's fantastic!

    I also don't make a lot of calls. I do text quite a bit, though. :eek:

    About an hour per month. With Virgin Mobile's pre-paid plan, that comes to just under $10... and the phone was free.

    About 500-600 billable, and 300-400 more nights and weekends. That's on a family plan with 700 minutes and free N & W, AND a 12 year old daughter. She now doesn't have the phone because she hung up on me when we were trying to find where she was on halloween. The only reason she has one is so we can get in touch with her and vice versa. Boy, I was mad that night!

    Anyhoo, we also have about 1,200 minutes in rollover left. We might downgrade this plan soon.

    [Old Man Voice] When I was your age all phones were plugged into the wall - none of this new-fangeled wireless stuff [/Old Man Voice]

    My company pays for all my calls so i don't actually keep track of how much I use. I used to have 2 mobiles -- mine and the one my company provided -- but with the company paying for the company one I saw no sence in keeping the other.

    At home I use the landline phone anyways

    *hangs head in shame* Is it terribly bad that I don't know? :eek: Can't be too many hours since I almost never get billed over the flat $50 a month (unless I receive/send any text messages, the jerks charge me for every single txt.).
