Save money on your cell phone

Everyone has a cell phone these days. Even little kids in elementary school has a decent looking phone. But, owning a cell phone can be hefty, so how can you get the most out of your dollar with your cell phones and carrier plans?

First, get a phone that you will use. Of course the Appli iPhone 3G S sounds nice and the Palm Pre sounds like a good time but, if you are not going to be using all the features, do not get it. Don't jump on the hype bandwagon. Remember, it's a cell phone, you are suppose to make calls with a cell phone.

Second, you have to choose the right plan. If you are a heavy cell phone user, you're better with getting a monthly plan with realistic minutes. If you go over your monthly minutes, you will be charged expensive overage fees so be careful.

Then, get a family plan

Also, take advantage of free calling minutes. Calls to other cell phones on the same carrier are usually free so take advantage of that.
