If you have a cell phone what carrier do you use?
Do you like their service?
If you don't have a cell phone, why?
Would you consider getting your child a cell phone?


I have NEXTEL and the service is hit and miss. There are days I spend cussing my phone.
Prior to having it I refused to get a cell phone because it was an expense I wasn't willing to have.
I have seen all these new cell phones coming out for kids and I'm still a little on the fence about it. It still floors me when I see 10 yos walking through the mall with a phone clued to their ear.

We have Nextels too. My mom has a "family business" and so we all have phones with this service.
We hate it. They have horrible range and horrible customer service. We're trying to get out of the contract.
Right now, I cannot see myself getting Justin a phone. If he becomes very active in school and sports, I might consider it for family use only, but not day to day with his friends. I have teenage cousins that sit around for hours texting their friends. My aunt is always complaining about the bills. I will not allow that.

We use Rogers and never had a problem with them so far. And I will definately not be getting Branden a cell phone anytime soon. I can barely get him to answer the home phone!

Brandon begged for a cell phone for as long as I could remember. We never gave in. Now he is on his mom's plan and racks up the bills bigger then you know what. I am so glad we never let him have one.
