    I have just been informed that now that I am retired from UPS I no longer qualify for the UPS discount on my phone plan. I would think that retired employees would be treated better than this !!!!

    Welcome to Brown Cafe, cstrohm!

    We have lots of information regarding retirees getting the shaft!

    Now, you being a retired person, you'll be spending a lot more time at home. You'll use your cell much less.
    Re-think your monthly plan, maybe even get a pay-as-you-go plan.
    A $20 pre-paid card could last you 2 months or more, if you don't use your cell much.

    Use it less??!! In America, cell phones aren't used for talking. They are used for texting & watching porn. Better get a plan with extra data.

    Retirees deserve getting the shaft because we sold out the part-timers in the early '80s...

    I can't keep track of my cell phone since I retired, because I rarely use it. When I do, it is usually for texting. I have a prepaid plan from Pure Talk. You can choose the number of minutes you want to buy, and you are billed monthly. Additional lines are $5.00 per month. My bill has been $15 per month.

    I like it because you can go online and redistribute minutes between phones, and minutes rollover. Also, there are no taxes. They use the AT&T network, and you can use your own phone. So, you can go on Ebay and get a good deal on quality phone if you look for a recently discontinued model.

    Did that. Was spending bout $120 or more/month for wife and I. Use my phone, since retired, bout once every 2/3 mos. Got on pre-pay ($35/yr, $1.00 use p/day, only if I use it). We pay hers about $35/mo w/unlimited text...the works...and that will go away when she retires.

    How did Verizon find out that you retired?
