Man these Verizon guys have us good. They are laughing all the way to the bank. I hate the phone. I never use it. Don't have much to say I guess. My wife lives on the phone. Home phone (unlimited calling and tons of extras): $55 + fees = $75 Wife's cell (1000 minutes): $70 my cell (don't know why I have one): $10 DSL: $32 Total: $187 and there are other taxes/fees/screwings that I'm probably forgetting here. This is $2200 a year! When everyone was yelling about gas prices I was asking them how we all afford $50/month for cell phones. We didn't have cell phones 10 years ago and we all survived. This is nuts. I just switched from the $55 plan to a $40 plan on the home phone. Need to get the wife to lower the cell minutes. Maybe I'll even drop the DSL to 768k for $15/month. Can someone tell me why Broadband costs have been cut in half in the past 3 years when traditional voice dialing, which has been around for 100 years, is now outrageously expensive? Are any of you using your cell phone as your primary phone? Anyone over 30 doing this? Vonage isn't an option because I'd either need another line for DSL, or lose my phone number, or switch to cable modem. None of these are cost effective in the end. (I'm on DirecTV right now so cable will screw me.) Anyone with me? Or am I just a dinosaur?
