Ways to Reduce Your Cell Phone Bill {and charges}

The following Best Savings Tip comes from reader, Kendra:

A few years ago we used our cell phones for our business so we were playing for unlimited plans. A while after our business closed we reviewed our cell phone bills closely and realized that our talk time had dramatically decreased and yet we were still paying for this unlimited plan.

We reviewed our cell phone usage back for as far as we could, figured out who we were talking to and when. Our plan allows us to add names to a “friend” list that would be free to call. We have added all our top contacts to that list which reduced our usage even further.

We were able to reduce our bill to a mid level plan. Even with an unlimited data plan, we cut our costs by at least 30 percent!

    I have been BETA testing the new apps from Smart Mouth Mobile that allow calling via WiFi over VOIP and have cut my monthly wireless bill over 60% just testing!

    They have a new version coming out next week that will work on Android and Blackberry as well as iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch that gives unlimited international calling for only $19.95 per year! I can’t imagine anyone not wanting some of that action.
