I have a prepaid TracFone where you don’t get a monthly bill. I tried to give a creditor my new phone number, but they said I would have to send them a phone bill to prove the number was mine. Geesh! I would say the heck with them, but the website wants to text me a code to verify my identity. All I can really think to do is to pay this creditor off and close the account. They mostly want you to pay them using their website, but how am I supposed to do this if you don’t have my correct phone number to text the code to.
I’m getting tired of all this bs, and have made sure everyone except this one creditor is sending me a paper bill so I can mail check. This creditor won’t send me a paper bill.

I prepay for my phone service as well. It’s only 15 dollars a month. 16 something after taxes, I think.
Social services pay mine.

@Bowens. Mine is approximately $30 a month after adding in taxes. I have one gig of data a month on my phone for when I’m not on Wi-Fi.
My phone bill is $15 a month usually.
I’m happy with my provider so far.
I also use mytello to call to Sweden once a fortnight.
Mytello is prepaid.
I usually put $10 in at a time and a phone call usually cost $3-4 I think.under $10 anyway.

@SacredNeigh7 It looks like mine is more expensive than you guys have.
Man that is super frustrating. I hate when two factor authentication goes wrong. It’s almost impossible to get around. I hope you’re able to get everything smoothed over soon.
Yes I do have a phone bill but my mom is kind enough to pay it for me. I have ATT. They are good with service. I know the bill is usually a couple hundred dollars for me and my moms phones. Expensive

My cell phone bill is like $250 a month. Four lines. Unlimited everything. I have a home phone too but have cable, internet and home phone. That’s like $300. I claim it all as a business expense.
