On February 8th I got my ANR line from at&t. That’s the reduced rate cell phone service they offer employees and at&t authorized dealers. I gave up my old plan that was grandfather in with unlimited incoming calls.
My plan with at&t before the ANR line was a $39.99 plan with 600 rollover minutes, 5000 mobile to mobile and 5000 nights and weekends. I also had $14.99 for unlimited incoming calls, $30 for unlimited Blackberry Data, $15 for 1500 messages and $4.99 for insurance my total bill after tax is $109.
Now I pay $35 before tax for 2000 minutes with unlimited nights/ weekends, mobile to mobile, unlimited messaging, unlimited Blackberry, insurance and 100 minutes video share.
I avoided making this change for years because I did not want to lose my control over my line. Now that I am on a ANR line I have to ask permission for features and I can not use the Apple iPhone. Before I got the ANR line I would swap back and forth from the iPhone and Blackberry.
These days times are hard and anyway we can save money is a good thing.
