Cell Phone Bills Are Dropping

Over the past six months or so I've been attacking the spend on my cell bills. For starters I took advantage of the Verizon Wireless share plan, then did some surgery on Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. This week, with the release of T-Mobile's unCarrier approach I dropped close to another $250 a month off our company's mobile bills and my personal accounts with them.

T-Mobile has taken some shots with their new "Uncarrier Pricing" but to me, eliminating the contract and lowering my monthly spend a bit more makes total sense. What I also did was made use of an EU variant iPhone with T-Mobile, taking a non-used Nano SIM, popping it in and getting 3G speeds in San Diego with it. The phone lacks AWS (1700mhz) but given the refarming of spectrum by T-Mobile the 1900mhz bandwidth is there for the using.
