BILL SHRINK

We were shocked to learn that the average Windows Mobile cell phone user pays $205.33 a month. The average Android phone user pays $196.94 per month. The average Blackberry user pays $194.35 and the average iPhone user pays $164.91. So cell phone users are paying $2,000 or more a year for phone service.

BillShrink.com is a site for comparing rates. For us, it suggested cell phone plans starting at just $500 a year. Since this was considerably more than the $120 a year we were already paying, however, we weren’t impressed.  Of course our low cost phone TracFone doesn’t have a camera, can’t send or receive email or surf the web, but it does have a calendar, games, a calculator and an alarm clock. And if you want, you can keep your old phone number and have it transferred to the TracFone.
