Switching to a ‘free’ cellphone proves costly

I am a senior citizen who uses a cellphone only for emergencies. Yes, I am almost extinct in today’s world.

Recently, I realized that my 2008 cell was failing, so I requested a new version of the clamshell – no Internet, no camera, no movies, just phone calls. This phone was supposedly “free.”

Hawaiian Tel charged me $20 plus tax to change from the old cell to the new one. The next charge was $22.27 for “handling and postage” to send the new cell to my house.

I might add that my monthly charge is $29.99 just to have this parasite riding in my car for emergencies.

I am upset with my own stupidity for staying with this company.
