If you are traveling, or expect a low phone bill for a period of time, most phone service providers provide a plan called deferred billing. If you are an AT&T customer and sign up for deferred billing, you will not be required to pay your phone bill until it has reached $30 or more in long distance charges or in 90 days, whichever comes first.
Low income customers can also sign up for a deferred payment program through lifeline.org. This service can be used if the loss of a job or other hardship leaves you unable to pay the full amount of your bill.
