  • Boost is the best prepaid network around, there is also a new plan from Verizon that I've heard good things about. I'd stay away from Tracfone, they are usually more expensive and have lots of "hidden" costs.

  • T-mobile has a flexpa plan that has no contracts, no roaming and is reasonably priced. You can purchase the phones and cards at Walmart and Target too.

  • Straight Talk has been a good one for me. It works off of Verizons towers and I always have service no matter where I go (unless it's way out there where they have to pipe in sunlight lol)

  • i have prepay thru us cellular and love it. boost worked for a while and due to horrible customer service (including the airhead at the desk deleting all my contacts and even better, all my photos of my daughter's birth!) i dumped them. straight talk has issues w putting the money on the phone and then it not showing up as having been added, but has good reception. the us cellular one is 70 a month talk text n internet, all the people speak english when you call, and i have great reception.

  • I have a tracfone and like it. I get double minutes every time I buy a card. I don't have any hidden costs. I've had it for about 4 yrs and like it.
