Consumers hoping to bag big savings are going to be let down, when the fees come off the prices charged for cell phone plans will rise five dollars a month. Average savings will only be about two to three dollars a month. The savings won't be automatic, new subscribers will be put on the new plans without the fees. Existing subscribers will get to switch to a new plan without the fees when their current contracts expire. It's encouraging to see cell carriers ending this bait and switch practice of offering plans for one price and then tacking on fees that raise the total cost of the service by twenty percent or more. If one of the effects of the upcoming competition is honesty in cell phone plan pricing, then imagine what it will be like when the new guys get their services off the ground and really giving the big guys a real run for their money.
