I Hate My Wired Phone Until ...

I hate paying for my wired phone service.
It's expensive, those phones mostly just sit around so we can ignore sales calls (oh yeah, we also pay for caller id) and we don't even use it to dial long distance since it's cheaper to use the cell phone.

Until...

- the power goes out (and I even have to keep a non-powered, non-portable phone so that will work)
- I need to dial 911 and don't want to have to explain exactly where I am
- the cell phone isn't working which happens more than I like

Guess I'll keep it. I know if I were in college a cell phone is all I would have but I can afford it and I know what I'd be missing if I didn't have it, so I'll just complain about it instead.

Make sure you're on Measured Rate Service (did I rant about this before?). Way cheaper than "unlimited" service and I've never gone over the allotted minutes. It cut my monthly phone bill in half, nearly.

OK, just got my bill--$13.83. Compared to $20+/mo for that "Unlimited" service.
