    I've known people to get higher cell phone bills than that. People simply don't watch what they're doing or signing up for very often when it comes to cells.

    I think you should order a separated bill from your phone company, it's basicly a list with each call on it. It probably costs ten bucks or so but atleast you'll know where the $500 came from.

    HOLY CRAP 3100 min. Thats insane, I say loose a few friends, and 'make' your girlfriend 'give you something special', that might help a little, Heck, might even be better if you dont have to move...

    Well, the problem here is just a lack of responsibility.....sorry you have to sell the sterling, I'd buy it back if I could!

    When I got my first cell, I got a whopping 30 minutes a month, and never went over.
     
  12. Tim, 30 minutes is hardly enough time you need to call the pizza place every night! Man, if I only had 30 I'd run out and have no pizza :bawl:



    Joking, I really don't eat that much pizza, maybe 2 times a month

    Dating surely is one thing that increases the bills.. I've noticed that my bills can jump from the usual $30 to $300 :D

    Just another proof that girls are evil ;)

    Thats hillarious:D


    Its also funny, like what tyler was saying, people try to save minutes by text messaging, but it can cost more than regular phone calls.

    yeesh, you gotta give up your bass.


    I take it you are one of those people who is constantly on a cell phone (obviously). If you a person who uses it constantly WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING I have absolutely no pity for you and wish it were a thousand dollar bill. Any other circumstances and I feel sorry for you. But regardless, I hove you've learned your lesson from all of this, watch your minutes. I own a tracphone (prepaid minutes) I don't need a cellphone that bad. And I highly doubt you need to be on a cell phone long enough to rack up a 500 dollar bill. Next time you are going to have a (local) phone conversation, tell your friend, "Hold on I'll call you on the house phone as to avoid paying an assload of money on a cell phone bill."

    See, I have a cell with 900 minustes. my wife and i share it. I've never gone over. Not that many people have my number. But also I don't talk on it constantly. That's insane. 500 dollars. no way... That's about what my vehicle is worth. Change your cellphone number and don't give it to so many people. I still can't believe it.
