I'm just about ready to puke: Business line: About $80 per month. Line #2, fax: About $60 per month Home line: About $75 per month Cell: About $130 per month Other cells*: About $110 per month Business answering service: $70+ per month. * Local cell phones for Melodie, her son and daughter. I've got $525+ per month and it sucks! All of the phone are not used in a crazy manner. When I look at the bills, it seems that half the costs are 'garbage charges' like basic fee, taxes, charges for the hearing impared, George Washington farted on Sunday fee, etc, etc. etc! I think the phone companies tout their low rates and nail you with all the garbage fees to bump the bills to a pathetic degree!
