Still have my land line because I HATE talking on the cell phone.  {#Razz}

I have Verizon - no land line - I pay $60 + $30 for the data plan on my Blackberry.  At just over $100 (including taxes) it feels a little steep, but considering I'm not paying for a home line and that I'm 10 times more organized now, it is worth it.

EDIT:  Another plus is the data plan makes everything except calls unlimited.  Most of my calls are to/from people with Verizon, so I never go over my limit.

Me!  £35 a month for 800mins and 500texts.  I used to have £30 a month for 600mins etc but went over the limit a few times (they just charge huge amounts of money) so upgraded.  Thats on O2.

Us. 

I pay $80/month for a cell/data plan.  E pays about that for her phone . . . but she's supplying phones to two daughters and one of their boyfriends on that, too.

not to take anything away from Verizon, but most phone companies will do that if you call. just sayin' in case anyone else runs over minutes and gets a large bill.
 
Sprint credited me more than $180 in overage when I changed plans - the rep didn't even hesitate.

My part of the bill is puny, because my phone is just for emergencies...

And I got a technodweeb of a husband who figured out how to use his blackberry as a business tool, so I can't break him of that.

And I give kudos to Verizon... in December, with the ice storm, we had nothing but cell phones to communicate with for 2 weeks.  Didn't even THINK about the minutes!  We owed an EXTRA $500 for that month. 

I called and asked if there was any kind of State of Emergency Call Donation Fund or something... but what she did was bump us up to the next level plan (unlimited text, 700 minutes, etc etc) for $60 more per month.  So... $60 instead of $500. 

total monthly bill for the three of us: $200 plus taxes and other fees. 

We need to call and reset our plan to about half that... especially because there are always lots of other mysterious fees and unexpected charges.  ugh.

I'm embarrassed about our cell phone bill, considering how much we actually use the phones, and how cheap I am.

Well, you might have had a much colder winter this year.  I don't recall what it was like last year up there.  You could also have a heating unit that's getting a little long in the tooth and has to work harder to produce the same results.

 
I don't think I pay for heat though.  not with the electric company. can using a humidifier sometimes at night do that? 
i just have how much I payed.  not the wattage.
