    Mobile Rate and Texting Plans

    I'm looking to upgrade my cellphone service. I have a prepaid phone now, and it's getting to be more expensive than a monthly plan. All I do is text, so something with very little minutes, and unlimited texting would be great. I like some of the prices I have seen from Cincinnati Bell, but they claim that a package has unlimited texting, and then you have to pay more for the texting.

    For example, they have a package that has 200 minutes, with unlimited texting for $29.99 a month. However, when I try to apply that to a phone, they try to charge you again for text and data. Anybody with Cincinnati Bell that could enlighten me a little bit would be a huge help.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Go to a store instead of buying online. I have an old plan, but I have 1000 minutes, plus unlimited text and media for $50 a month. You can add unlimited texting and media to thier plans for $15 a month, so I'd just get the lowest number of minutes they offer and just add the $15. Data plans are for smartphones (Blackberries, etc) and you don't need it if you aren't planning on using the phone for email, web browsing, etc.

    Only downside with Cincy Bell is the phone selection sucks.

    Edit: They can transfer your phone # off of a pre-paid phone to. I had T-Mobil pre-paid, and I was able to keep my number.

    I noticed that too. I was looking at the flip Blackberry, basically just for looks.

    I think I'm going to go to the Cincinnati Bell store tomorrow, and find out what I can.

    Thanks for the help.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, here it is:

    http://cincinnatibell.com/consumer/wireless/rate_plans/

    If you click on the basic tab, it should be the second one down. It lists unlimited text, but then it charges for it again if you try to place the order.

    I have unlimited calls for $50 with T-Mobile. Don't expect me to text back.

    Maybe you should get Verizon. (Do most of your friends have Verizon?)

    Texting and calling is free (you won't get charged for texts or calling minutes) to other Verizon subscribers.

    Not to mention the reception is spectacular anywhere you go, as is the customer service. At work I can get service in places others would never believe. Despite lower rates from other companies, you'd have to pry my Verizon phone from my cold, dead hands.
