Does anyone know if cell phone companies will let you pay on a large balance without turning off your service? My fiance and I are freaking the fuck out because we are about to be living in squalor (we live in michigan and the economy is shit to begin with, and now our student loans/ credit cards are finally catching up with us), so after minimizing so much that Im now baking bread instead of buying it to save money I have discovered that my phone bill this month is going to be $350. Im pretty sure I shat myself when I saw that on the screen. Its completely my fault... I got on the internet on my phone a few times without even realizing it and apparently if you dont have a data plan with verizon they charge the hell out of you. But we CANNOT afford to spend 300$ and getting a loan. asking someone for money is not an option. We also have two kids under two and no landline, so I would really like to not have to be home with them all day without a phone. Anyone have any ideas? I realize I suck at life and theres PROBABLY nothing I can do... But if youve been in a similar situation and somehow got out of it I would LOVE to know how. Thanks in advance!
