Do you have a cell phone? Do you know your monthly contract? Do you know how many calls you are allowed to make during the day? Do you know how much you are charged when you go over your allowed calls? If you have answered yes or no to any of the questions, read on.

Cell phones have taken over the world. We can not survive a day without making a call on our cell phones. If we do not have any money for other bills the cell phone gets paid.

When an emergency comes charging into your life the cell phone is your life line.

What I would like to talk about today is not the amazing uses of a cell phone. I think we all know we can not be without one; it is the expense of the cell phone.

What do you know about your monthly contract? When you do happen to be in an emergency situation and the phone calls come in and out – are you keeping track of the phone calls? How many calls are you allowed during the day? Are you keeping track of the ones made in the evening and on weekends? What is the penalty for going over your monthly allowed calls?


(1) How many daytime minutes allowed?

(2) How many night time and weekend minutes allowed?

(3) What time do the daytime minutes turn into night time minutes?

(4) What time in the morning do your night time minutes turn into day minutes?

(5) When is the last day of your billing cycle?

(6) Do you have cross over minutes?

(7) How much is your monthly bill?

When you do receive you cell phone bill – you may be in for the shock of your life? Your bill will be extraordinary – a financial burden you may not be able to recoup from.

When you do get your cell phone bill call your contracted carrier and explain to them about your emergency. They want to keep you as a satisfied customer. They might help you credit some of the charges. This is the time to decide if you need a new plan.

Yes, the cell phone is your friend and it can also become your enemy. Be aware of your monthly contract before this catastrophe happens to you.
