Over the past year, I've become a mostly virtual, mobile employee.

The cellphone provided to me to do my job was outdated and not very useful, so I basically ended up forwarding those calls to my personal smartphone and using that instead of the employer provided phone.

Well, now my employer has just upgraded me to a new iPhone, so that changes things.

My personal smartphone package is coming to the end of two year contract.

Now that I have an iPhone, I could probably downgrade to something less expensive for personal use - since my personal use is basically limited to voice and text.

Suggestions to reduce my personal wireless bill?

Thanks, RS

Um...not sure, I just got it last night. Can I find out by playing around the touchpad? LOL

When I went off contract (I was on my sister's plan, I've never had a contract), I went to the carrier with my phone and switched it to a prepaid. I kept the same phone, and just got a new sim card. FWIW, my carrier is T-Mobile.

I put $25 on the phone, and when it runs low I added more. For over 3 years I got by averaging about $10 a month in cell phone fees. There were a couple of times I went through more, but I liked having the cell and I didn't mind paying for it as I was using it. As long as I spent $100 per year the minutes didn't expire.

If you have some leftover minutes, when you go in at the end of the year ask if you can carry them forward. They'll usually ask for $10.00 or so, but carrying those minutes forward can be great. They did it for me (after I learned the tip on this board).

as an aside, this new iPhone has been kept turned on for 6 days straight and never recharged. I am amazed at the battery in this thing.

Anyway, will be talking to T Mobile about a pre paid for personal use, thanks.
