    my cellular bill

    I have a family plan for me, my wife and my 2 adult children.
    My kids are supposed to be paying me each month for their share/portion of the bill, but my wife doesn't take their money.

    My wife pays the bills, but I happenned to look over the one that came today.

    The wireless detail section lists all the charges and minutes used(we are unlimited)
    In the column marked Msg/KB/MB Used:
    Me:12
    My wife: 1449
    My daughter: 2233
    My son: 341,472

    I thought the numbers are funny. Me 12, my son 341,000

    This is not the number he uses most. He has a work cell that is always on.
    I dont think he text messages on this phone, so it must be downloads or something.

    Something is screwy here. I'm not familiar with cellular bills (I have a prepaid TracFone, on which I spend about ~$120 a year), so I don't know if these numbers are strictly voice minutes, or if they include texts or net surfing or what. But ...
    341,472 minutes / 60 minutes per hour = 5691.2 hours
    5691.2 hours / 24 hours per day = 237 days
    Say what?

    Yeah, maybe downloads. But still....

    my cellular bill

    I don't think that is "minutes" Kerry, Allen listed it as "Msg/kb/mb used". It would be nearly impossible to do that many minutes.

    Correct Allen?

    Just for fun, the following is what my wife and I do:

    Myrna is real gabby on her cell phone. Last year she used it six minutes.

    I might do 10 minutes a month plus a lot with Glenn that are free because we are on the same plan.

    However, I am sure you have noticed that I have diarrhea of the keyboard when I am on FWW.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    my son is a computer geek.

    I dont know much about this stuff, but I do know in college he had a bit of problems with the school because he thought the entire colleges bandwidth was his personal stash.
    They didnt kick him out, but he was warned a few times.

    Now the cell company gives him unlimited.

    Sounds like wireless internet usage. I worked for a wireless company in customer service and technical support for about 10 years and have seen it all.
