I can't see myself doing that. I've got six more months in this current contract. I may just keep my phone though.

not yet but my hubby showed me the way and now i'm a believer. my next phone will be paid for in cash. 

if you buy a phone and go with a low cost carrier it pays for itself. the low cost carriers use the same towers as the big 3 so that's not a concern.

so let's say you have to pay $600 that for a phone. that's probably $400 more than you'd pay with a contract. 

wonderful, right?

well I'd save $30 a month by going with a lower cost carrier. $30*24 months =$720 in savings. so i'd rather pay the extra $400 now, not feel tethered and live my life. My money is recouped in a year, or faster if you chose a cheaper phone like the Nexus 4.

That sounds cool. How you do that?

I have in the past but won't do so in the future. I am wising up in me ole age. 

I am also really funny about getting into contracts etc. I have to really think about it before I sign on dotted line. These phone companies are trying to tie people up on 36 month contracts. That makes me break into a sweat.

3 years?  Mine's 2 years but it doesn't bother me so much.  I'll be ready for a new phone by then.
