This week has been CRAZY here in the south with the unexpected winter storm that hit. Tuesday as it was all happening and there were thousands stranded on the roads, the cell phone service got really bad because everyone was trying to call their loved ones at one time. That got me thinking… a few years ago, a reader told me that her son was stranded during a winter storm and they were reaching their monthly minute limit. She called their cell phone provider and explained the situation and they gave her 300 bonus minutes to use over the next 90 days. So if you are ever in a situation where you had no choice but to use your phone and you are reaching your limit, just call and be honest with your provider and they may just surprise you and help you out.
