Did you sign a contract with a carrier service when you

received you new razor v3? Or did you spend big bucks on your own phone without a sevice?

If you are like most of us, you sign a 1 or 2 year contract with a service like ATT or Verizon. If you have a contract, there could be a penalty (sometimes is too large to end the contract) to switch carriers before your contract ends.

Evaluate why your bill has been higher than you wish. I could be that you are using more minutes than you contract pays for. If you go over the minutes, you pay a price for every minute you use. You may save money by changing you plan to more minutes.

Now if your minutes are in texting, carriers are starting to give unlimited texting for a small fee. If you are using the internet on your phone, well that can get expensive on any carrier. Now most carriers will let you buy time to be on the internet, but if you are constantly there, it can get expensive.

Good luck, great phone.
