I still love the Mocs regardless of this loss...
We are only paying about $75-$85 a month total (counting gov'mt fees) because we keep our TV with the cable company Comcast charges us $29.95 a month, Our basic home (Plain old Telephone) service phone is about $25.00 a month and our AT&T internet is just $19.95 a month. So that means we are only paying between $80 to $90 a month keeping it all separate and (not) getting all the bells and whistle's on the Home phone or the fastest speed on the internet. Our 2 cellphones are $80 a month also with AT&T-Cingular but with my Boyfriends discount we end up only paying about $45-$50.00 for everything on our 2 Iphones.
Well my Boyfriend retired from AT&T. He says that the company has gone to crap since the merger of Bellsouth to AT&T. The customer service is crap, they go up every year on their services just like Comcast does. They all lure you in with a low price and then they all go up on the cost of the services usually within the first 6 months. We still have our cellphones with Cingular (AT&T) and we have our cable with Comcast, AT&T provides our home phone. You really save more money if you don't bundle. Keep your TV service with the cable company and the Home or business phone with the Phone Company, Get your internet from the one you prefer. If you have basic phone service and not a bundle with TV and internet, then they cannot go up on your phone service without Public Service Commission approval. Those rates for residential phone service is governed by state tariffs submitted to the state PSC for approval.
