Looking for cheaper service

This is my first post.

 

I have AT&t service   on TWO phones 

no text  no data    have 850 minutes  with rollover 

If I send a text message it cost .20  each way..

 

This month  I had only $3.00 for Texting 

but my Wife  will max out the minutes almost every month 

 

my Bill average  for the two phones  is  $102.00 per month

 

I was thinking about   changing over to the GO Phone 

which would be  2 x $50.00  plus tax ETC..

But I would  have unlimited TEXT,DATA , and minutes

 

is the  GO phone like the others  If I call someone on AT&T  they are not charged for 

phone uses minutes?

 

 

 

But my problem is  one of my phones  contract ends 2/24/2012

but the other phone  ends 2/18/2013

 

will AT&T  change me over to goPhone  without  charges for the old contract..

Re: Looking for cheaper service

Switching to Gophone will leave you with contract exit fees. You could change the one phone over to a gophone when the contract expires.

You don't have unlimited data with the $50/plan if you have a smartphone but doesn't sound like you need it.

I would get a family plan if I were you. http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/cell-phone-plan-details/?q_sku=sku3830315&q_planCateg...

Gives you 1400 minutes to share between the phones for $90 + taxes ect. still no text or data.

Only $70 for 700 minutes but if your wife runs it up, likely smarter to get the extra minutes.

I think that a user with GoPhone service will allow AT&T post paid customers free mobile-to-mobile minutes, but not the other way around. It costs me money to dial users that have AT&T post paid or prepaid service.

You will be charged early termination fees if you decided to cancel both contracts. I would wait until both contracts expire until you want to switch to prepaid service, unless you are comfortable paying hundreds of dollars in early termination fees...
