I had a conversation with a person today in regards to a cell phone bill as last month he racked up a three figure bill. He did mention how he was used to US plans instead which offered more for less, but thatâ€™s another story.
What this did remind me of is how a lot of people place restrictions and credit limitations on various service subscriptions to prevent any type of overspending. For example, when it comes to cell phone services, a lot of people use pre-paid cards to prevent any surprises.
I think the only time I did this was back when dial-up Internet was pretty much the only feasible option as the service would just get cut off after X amount of hours instead of going on a plan that continually billed by the hour. It tends to make you a little more money conscience too with your finances I think.
