My China Telecom cellphone bills:

MonthRMB
Jun-06121.99
Sep-0669.54
Oct-06101.16
Nov-06134.22
Dec-06120.51
Jan-07110.06

The June 2006 data point is from a weblog post I made last year. Looking at more detailed stats in Excel, I see a curious pattern: talk time and internet time are inversely related; if one goes up the other goes down, and vice versa. Still, my average bill is consistently around RMB 110 (about US $14). This means that I buy recharge cards about once a month, less than I expected.

Also from my detailed stats, I see that I pay RMB .6 per minute of talk time and RMB .1 per SMS. Internet time (GPRS) costs about RMB 4 per hour. That's pretty bad, I'll try to read the newspaper instead! That costs RMB .5-.7 for an hour's worth of reading (those numbers are 7 cents, 1 cent, 50 cents, and 6-9 cents)
