Buh-Bye, Sprint.....

I wish I would have done this 3 years ago when I first started the plan... but I guess better late than never. I have been a Sprint customer since 2003. Hubby and I have grown very accustomed to our dumb phones, and for the longest time, that wasn't something I was willing to give up.

I finally realized enough was enough. We don't use or blackberries for all the frilly extras that they have the capability of doing. Honestly, I talk, I text, and I check email. I try to surf the web, but it's slow, and it's a pain in the tush, so I eventually get fed up and wait until I'm near a computer anyway.

I'm going to pay the stupid tax $120 early termination fee for my phone (his has already passed the contract date) because in only 2 months we'll have saved that much money to make it worth the switch.

We were paying $130 a month for our 2 phones. I checked our usage with sprint, and between the two of us, we barely hit 1000 minutes per month. We decided to go with the $30 plan at Straight Talk which is 1000 minutes, 1000 text, and 30MB of data. They also have a $45 per month plan which is unlimited talk, text and web. I found a phone for $30 for me, and a refurbished phone for $20 for him. A couple of up front costs to save more money in the long term.


So, the phones should arrive on Friday. I can't wait to activate them and be done with my ridiculously priced Sprint bill....
