  • Do you talk alot? I cannot believe that for $60 per month ATandT has unlimited prepaid text and wireless minutes! I am actually going to switch to this from regular att and t! They get good service almost anywhere! I will tell you that do not gowith Cricket,,, I could only use them in town, and you need to be able to use a phone anywhere esp. if you have kiddos, good luck Mommy and happy chatting,LOL!

  • I would say check out Cricket. We love it! Right now it's just $25 a month for unlimited talk & text. You will have to check the coverage map for your area, but chances are it's great! I have never gone anywhere that I couldn't get service... And for $25 who can beat it?

  • OP here, i live in the mountains and i dont get service for boost mobile, the best buy here doesnt even sell them because of that reason.

  • I have virgin mobile and love it DH, my mom and I all use it and we all have different plans depending on what we need. my dh just pays $20 ever 60 days he doesnt really talk a lot and if he needs more we add more money.

    I pay $25 a month for 200 minutes and 200 text, i rarely run out at the end of the month normally i have minutes left and they roll over. the text dont roll over which is fine i never use 200 in a month anyhow.

    there are several plans to choose from.

  • Tracfone!!! For $10 a month you get 50 minutes. You can always get more minutes and it's not expensive at all!!That's the only cell phones we've ever used.We don't use our phones very much.
