Check out these 5 easy ways to lower your phone bill!
Tired of paying $100’s of dollars each month on your phone? We all are. These days everywhere you look someone is on their phone. Just take a look around your doctor’s office, it’s rare to see people reading a book or magazine, most people are staring down their phone.
Make sure you aren’t paying for unnecessary extras.
Look on your phone bill statement, sometimes your phone company will charge you for crazy extras, such as; GPS, insurance (you didn’t request). You can easily cancel any extra you don’t want online, or by calling your phone company.
Compare your carrier with others.
Who’s cheaper? ATT, Verizon, Sprint, etc. Why pay more for the same service you can get cheaper with someone else. Be sure to shop around for the best phone plans in your area before signing a contract with a carrier. You can also look for bundle deals to save money as well. With some providers, you can bundle your phone, cable, and internet.

Sometimes employers offer discounts to employees who sign a contract with a specific carrier. A lot of state, and federal employees can get this discount depending on the carrier. Also, check with your employer to see if they offer a phone to their employees are a special discount.
Don’t get the most expensive phone on the market.
I get it, we all want the newest coolest phone available. However, you can save on your monthly bill (if you finance the phone through your carrier). Getting the previous model of your phone can save you some cash. If you do want the latest phone available try to pay for it upfront. You’ll be paying quite a bit more if you pay each month for your device than you would buying it upfront.
Texting and Data.
If you don’t text very often, get rid of unlimited texting. Don’t use your data often? Then stop paying for unlimited data. You should only have to pay for what you use, not for unlimited everything. If you only use a few GB of data per month opt for a lower data plan to save some money.
Consider talking to your phone company to help lower your phone bill, they see how much you use your phone and what plan will work best for you and your family.
