How many minutes a month do you talk on the cell phone?

I have a family plan with my wife -- I use about 300 minutes/month. She typically uses 1-4 minutes -- most often, 1.

Usually 20-50, so of course I'm on a pay by the minute plan.

It varies between 3,000 and 4,000 for three kids and wife and me.

But most of that is absorbed by MyFaves (calling circle) and free nights/weekends, so we rarely go over our 700 minute plan. (Now if I could just get the kids' phones to stop working when our time is used up...)

I use about 200 minutes a month if I'm working from my home office the entire time, but if I'm travelling it can be as much as 600 a month.

Most of my co-workers, family, and friends are on the same cellular network, and actual paid minutes are much lower since mobile to mobile in network minutes are free on my plan.

I have a 1000 minute plan and rarely go over 500, so I have about 4600 in my rollover account.

Oh my, I must need to get a life. Thank goodness I have an unlimited plan with nextel because I average 6000 to 7000 a month! I will say though I am always on the road and needing to keep in contact with my clients 24/7

I use up to 200 but usually around 75-120. I text a lot though - 1000/month. When I first moved to NY I was shocked to see that the cheapest plan included 300 minutes.

Usually around 4000-6000 minutes per month, most of it international roaming.

You do not want to see my phone bill each month!!!
