I got my phone bill today and was shocked at the news. I had no idea that my cell phone bill totaled $129 in long-distance charges this billing cycle, leading to a total phone bill at $204.

Yeah, holy shit, huh?

So, for those of you that I call, here's what it means:


  • I will not take any calls from out of state on this phone as a means to lower the bill for the next cycle.
  • I will accept text messages and would ask that you send me text messages to let me know if you're going to call or would like me to call you.
  • I recommend that you call my home number, if you don't have it I'll e-mail it to you.
  • As such, if I talk to you in the near future I'll be calling you from my home phone with a calling card.

Sound good? Please comment, message, or e-mail.

Post-Script: The parentals have informed me that the $204 phone bill was the remainder after my Mom's previous over-payment, leaving a credit of $33. So, the real total cost of that bill is $237. Crazy, huh?

It's ok! I just found out and I realized I need to get a new plan and a new phone because they both suck right now.

I actually did pretty darn good last month. Only 130 of the actual minutes (280 of the free minutes, but that's okay)I was quite proud of myself. If you can't get a new plan, I strongly recommend calling cards (but then again, everytime I use them I end up forgetting the number I'm about to call...)

LOL! I have a calling card, but I usually use all the minutes up between calling my parents.

I just need to get 10,000 units on my calling card.
