If you haven't switched to the latest plan with your carrier, you might be overpaying / being gouged. Earlier this year I investigated what Verizon had to offer and found out I was paying waaaay too much money. After collaborating with family members we got 5 of us signed up under one plan and are saving hundreds of dollars a month now. Family plans save $$$ folks. And the plan differences between each carrier are not that drastic either. Verizon and AT&T reign supreme. Yes, more money, but you have superior service over the cheaper carriers. Whoever is your carrier, do yourself a favor and take the time to see if you're overpaying and switch plans asap.
