So I just got this voice on my cellphone telling me that my minute balance is low. I have a prepaid and usually by for $100 worth of minutes which I normally spent in about 9 months to a year. I ignored it for a few days (I don’t call much) and I went on the website. And wow, I find out I had 488 minutes remaining (basically I used up only about 500 minutes in the past year) but the minutes were about to expire tomorrow. I put in an additional $50 (I guess for the next year). I gotta say, that’s a cheap plan :)
Apparently 500 is not enough for some people for even a month. I think my brother goes through a thousand or two each month. Well this is probably the result of living in a small midwest town and riding a bike to work so we almost never have to call each other with Marketa to pick each other up or some such. 1000 in 9-12 months was my San Diego average.
