- If you don't need unlimited voicecalls, unlimited texting and/or unlimited cell data (at 4G speeds), you can save money by having a monthly, pay-for-what-you-need cellular phone plan. I suggest checking your bills over past year to see your average monthly usage. I pay < 1/2 with Consumer Cellular for our calling, texting and data compared to AT&T; if you decide to switch to Consumer Cellular, mention that Steve Weyer referred you, and we'll both get a credit; if you're an AARP member, you'll save an additional 5% per month
