As a family we pay $255 a month for cell phones. I have been thinking that I should just jump off the high cost merry go round, and just go with something like the Wal-Mart straight talk plan. Just seems to be crazy to spend 3 grand a year on a phone bill. I would miss the convenience of my iPhone, but honestly I think I could make due with an iPod. My wife and son do not have smart phones so the change for them would not be that much. My daughter has a 4S so she may be the only hold out, but she is getting to the age where she should be paying her own bill anyway.
