Cell Phone Guide

There's a new guide out that could help us avoid getting scammed by cell phone companies. The Illinois Citizens Utility Board, or CUB is releasing a cell phone shopper's guide.

It helps shoppers ask the right questions and avoid common pitfalls. One of the biggest costs is the charge to cancel a contract. The lowest amount is $150; the highest is $200.

There is a chart that compares the costs of every wireless carrier. To look at the full report, log on http://www.citizensutilityboard.org/.
