Contracts: Most cell phone networks require 1 or 2 year contracts. With the average cell phone bill being over $60 per month, you're committing almost $1500 when you sign up. If you terminate a contract early, termination fees are usually around $200 or $300. There is also a $30 to $40 activation fee.

Taxes: There are tons of taxes on phone bills: state, federal, local, 911 service, etc. That add up to 20% to the bill in many areas. All cell phone plan rates are listed without taxes.

Night & Weekend Minutes: Almost every plan over $40/month includes unlimited night and weekend minutes because those are the times when there is least demand on the networks. Every company except Sprint starts their weeknights at 9 PM.

Mobile to Mobile Calling: A big deciding factor should be what network your friends and family are on. To get customer loyalty most of the carriers offer unlimited calling within their network.

Long Distance & Roaming: Most national carriers do not charge extra for long distance or roaming. However some of the regional carriers may still charge extra. If you buy a regional plan, it might be cheaper, but be careful when traveling.

Text Messages: The price of text messages can vary from 5 to 10 cents. Some people never use it, and some people use it all the time. If you send and receive more than a few texts per day it's worth buying a text bundle with 100, 500, or even unlimited messaging.

Overages: Using more minutes than in your plan can be very expensive...as much as 40 cents per minute. Since services are postpaid, you'll get a big surprise in your bill if you don't keep track of how many minutes you use.
