I’ve been considering canceling my service since I moved out to New Mexico. The coverage is terrible due to hills/mountains out here and well $90 per month is $1080 per year. I could rattle off a few other reasons but at this point, what is done is done.
I ported my number to Google Voice and subscribed to Skype’s online number service. The total cost, per year, is going to be $150 with unlimited calls and texts (with a WiFi connection.) I’ve decided if I go off on vacation I’ll get a prepaid broadband service for the month so I don’t need a physical map and such. Google Maps is really nice I must admit.
***Update – 1 week later***
I’m amazed on how dependent I have become to having a mobile phone, specifically the data service. I still plan on not having phone service but it will be a difficult transition… I think for the best.
