What happens if you use a limited usage plan and get one that is sufficient for your needs and saves you money every month? I used to have the 1400 minute plan and changed us to the 700 minute plan for something like a $30/month savings. We have AT&T, so minutes roll over from month to month, but 700 minutes is still more than we need. This was a change that made absolutely no difference to what we were getting for a service and yet saved us money.

That's what we did. We have a shared minutes plan with Gary's mother, father, and sister (so 5 lines total). We can call each other for "free", which is nice because we all call each other a lot, and then we have five numbers that we can add to call for "free", so we each have one of those assigned. Even with five of us sharing minutes, we rarely use up all 1400 minutes.

Of course, we can only do this because Gary's family is extremely reliable about logging in and paying their portion of the bill on time.
