hey all, we have been with with Vz for over 10 years and it seems that the bill keeps rising everytime we upgrade. Not to mention that their service where we live is OK. We have surpassed the 150 per month mark for my wife and I with 1000 minutes. I think its a bit high mainly since we are averaging less than 500 minutes per month, they wont change our plan until the contract is up. At which point I am thinking of going with another carrier. Any suggestions? I heard of Republic Wireless which has a 20 per month and it essentially is a hybrid system of WiFi and cellular. The initial fee is 199 which includes a smartphone and the first month, then thereafter it is 20 per month. No contract. I think I will give it a try the last two months of my VZ contract, if I get a good result, ill cancel VZ and go with these guys.
