JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If you're looking to save money on phone service, I've got a great deal for you for your home and another great deal for cellphone service.

Let's start with the home. There's something called Straight Talk h
ome phone that you can see about at a Walmart store or at It's a phone service not based on the Internet. You don't even have to have an Internet connection. That's why my 89-year-old mom has it as her home phone service.

The price for call
waiting, unlimited calling for local and long distance, and caller ID is $15 a month. It has every feature you can think of including a really nice voicemail for just $15 a month without a contract.

Second, there's a new cellphone 
service that you can check out at It starts at around $18 a month for a smartphone. You get plenty of calling minutes, unlimited text, and a decent amount of high-speed data for $18 a month.
