Are YOU Getting Ripped Off by Your WirelessCarrier?

Chances are you don't like being ripped off.  You want a fair price for your products and services.  How about a paying $6.55 for a 3-pack of Paper Mate erasers (Currently selling at Walmart for $1.48)?  You would not buy them for $6.55, would you?  Let's make this a little more interesting so that you can see the impact. Suppose I want to sell you a $10,000 car for $44,286?  Would you think that's a bargain?  Well, that is pretty much how my cell phone bill compares to another major carrier's for the same service.

Do you want to know if your cell phone carrier is over-charging you for wireless service?  Here's some help that the Wall Street Journal put out.  A very easy-to-use savings calculator which will help you determine whether you will sign the two-year contract with your current carrier (assuming you have a contract).

What are your thoughts on this?  Did this tool help you see for yourself who is the most customer-centric company of the "Big Four"?  Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.  Send us an email to, a Tweet, a Keek, or YouTube video (don't forget to subscribe).
