I’m in the same boat you are and wondering how we could do without a cell phone now. We don’t use ours either for anything fancy, and like you, have a family plan which helps to keep up with details in our busy lives. So I would be interested to see what others have to say too. I have looked into the “go phones” but they are so expensive, it seems, 25 Cents a minute. It seems like keeping our plan is the least expensive option.
