5. Most data plans..

... (required for smart phone) are $30 a month in addition to the cost of your voice/text.

The phones cost several times what a plain old phone costs.

The only way to not get ripped off IMHO is to go with a virtual carrier (MetroPCS, Boost, SimpleMobile, etc) and pay month to month without a contract. This is always cheaper than getting into a contract, but then you have to buy your phone all at once instead of paying it in installments like you do with a contract carrier.
