if you use a prepaid cell phone

which one do you have? is it good? are the minutes affordable? I'm not looking for bells and whistles, but a cell phone. I want to avoid the tracfone because the prices for minute cards are ridiculous

  • I have tracfone and it's not so bad. I bought a phone that guarantees me double minutes for every card I buy. The phone was only $25 at Target and it has the camera. I ended up giving my Net10 phone (a good deal also) to my grandson and kept the tracfone.

  • I have straight talk through walmart. I love the service is great, I get signal everywhere so far. I only pay $40 a month for unlimited talk, text and web. They have some pretty awesome phones too but the are kind of high priced to me, I have the slider phone I love it so far but it was $80.

  • We have Tracfone and use the family Value plan. It's only $15 a month and because we both have the double minute plan, my husband gets 100 minutes and I get 60 minutes a month, which is all we need. We don't use our phones very much. I have a Samsung Slider and it was only $20.

  • We have straight talk through wal-mart, the signal is always awesome and the plans are only either 30 dollars for 1000 minutes per month and 45 dollars for unlimited text, talk and web browsing. The phone was a little high (80 bucks at wal-mart) it is really nice and serves all of our purposes.

  • i have ATT and we pay roughly $30.00 every 2 1/2 months. the phone cost $20 from walmart and then we set up our service over the phone. we pay via credit card never signing up for anything. it is one of those 1.00/day ONLY on days used kind of deals. and i have never setup my voicemail that way nobody can leave one and i am not tempted to check it. we NEVER text so that isnt an issue with us!
