Rate increase under contract.

I signed a one-year contract for phone service, mifi, and purchased a phone, all in May of this year.  Since then, my rate has increased twice, going from $134. a month to $161. a month.  Am I still bound by this contract or can I suggest someplace they can put it, cancel service, and go elsewhere?

You're not giving all the details -- prices don't hike up by $30 suddenly if you've been in a contract for awhile.

Phones are on payment plans these days and other devices such as tablets or hotspots don't change price regardless if contract status.

Are you sure your under a contract?  Carriers are using installments, not service contracts.  Since you listed them separately, I suspect you do not have a service contract.  Read your bill.
