Here’s What Your Phone Bill is Each Month

The results are in from our survey question earlier this week. Obviously, smartphone users spend more than those with “dumbphones” — generally around $75-$90.

Among smartphone users, significant savings are found using smaller carriers like Virgin Mobile, Page Plus, Cricket, and Republic. Those who spent more usually went with the bigger carriers like Verizon Wireless and AT&T. [Higher res chart here.]
