Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on phone service.

- Cell phone service can be expensive.  However, if you only need an emergency cell phone, think about a limited plan where you pay around $15/month.  You don't get a lot of minutes, but they can carry over to the next month.  If you pay for the whole year, it is just a fraction of the amount of paying per month.
 
- Buy your cell phone on ebay. Be sure that it is unlocked and will work with your desired carrier.
 
- Avoid contracts.  If your service doesn't work properly, you are stuck.
