Gosh, please do tell more . I get email at MUCH cheaper rates than texts, this'd help me a lot.

have an iphone if that helps
1) Don't text so much or at all.

One of the guys at work got an iPhone for his b-day. Within a month he wanted to return it, but it was too late to return. It was costing him too much just in the first month. He kept it for about 6 months (since it was a present) and then got a new phone so his phone bill wouldn't be so high.

But I got a deal for my new cell phone. My uncle and aunt are giving my mom and I their old phones (only like 4 or 5 months old) and they got a family plan where they only have to pay $20 a month extra for both of us, with more minutes than I could ever use...no cost to me since they are paying.

Any phone with a data plan like the iPhone won't be cheap. Anyone who regrets buying a phone like that should of done their research.
