Reduce your mobile bill with a smart phone that has the frills without the price tag.


With the Blackberry and the iPhone hogging the smart phone spotlight, we tend to forget that there is a whole world of unsung, cheaper (and in most cases, just as good) smart phones out there where the carriers don’t charge $50 a month for a data plan.  By downgrading from a Blackberry to my new Samsung—which is smaller, takes better pictures, and has faster internet connection— I’m saving $30 a month. Over the course of a year, that’s $360!

    Nice tip. The main thing I would mention to anyone considering switching plans, however, is that you should figure out first whether you can reduce your current cell bills down to acceptable levels–thereby saving often significant “early termination fees.” Not to blatantly plug, but I work for the consumer advocacy website http://www.fixmycellbill.com, powered by a company called Validas, where we slash the average cell bill by 22 percent. It costs five bucks to implement our suggested changes to your plan but we will analyze your bill for free without any commitment of purchase, just to let you know exactly how many dollars your carrier is ripping you off by.

    For more info, check out Validas on Fox News at http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/consumer/conlaw/lower_cell_phone_bills_072409 .

    Good luck to everyone reading on cutting your wireless costs, especially in this tough economy.
