I just got off the phone with AT&T after noticing that my monthly bill had increased by $10. The charge was coming from one of those scam SMS message companies and I was promptly given a refund. That got me thinking about my bill in general and just how expensive it is each month to maintain a phone with a basic data plan and unlimited text messaging.

I can remember a time when my monthly phone bill was under $50 but now even with the cheapest data and voice plans, I'm just shy of $100 per month. That's nearly $1,200 a year - ouch.

With this installment of the Weekend Open Forum, we are interested to know how much you pay for your mobile phone service each month. Are you on an individual plan or part of a family plan? Feel free to also share which wireless provider you use and what plan you utilize.
