My room mate has unexpectedly turned in a one month notice, so I need to dramatically cut costs everywhere I can think of. I'm presently a full time student on disability and while I'm hoping to start working the moment I graduate that won't be for a few months still.
Right now I'm not even making 1k a month, and my mother is financially unable to help me.
I was therefore wondering how I might adjust my phone bill costs.
I'm presently on the $40 plan (plus $15 tab fee and tax amounting to roughly $62/month) and had recently switched in my phone, as my former was no longer working properly, and so the tab balance is -$280.
As I understand it I can either break my contract or pay off my tab in full, but I'm uncertain as to the process for these options and their costs.
Ideally I would like to switch to a much cheaper pay-as-you-go plan with a more inexpensive phone.
If it makes any difference I have been a customer for a couple years now, and have consistently paid my bill on time.
