Does anyone use one? What service and how do you like it?

My contract with Sprint ends in May and I'm trying to figure out what to switch to. I don't really want to keep paying $95 a month for one phone.

Edit: Just checked and my contract actually ends next month. Guess I need to make a choice sooner than later!

We have Tracfones, no complaints. Traveled from one end of the states to the next and they always worked everywhere. Cheap too, but we don't talk on the phone much so it's cheap for us.

I use T-Mobile pay as you go.  $53 after taxes. Unlimited text, talk and data.  Love it.

My cell phone is also used in place of a house phone. So it gets used quite a bit. Sam has a tracfone in case of emergencies & so I can get ahold of him at work. But it would be too expensive to switch us both to tracfones.

I was considering T-Mobile. But, I don't like that instead of paying the amount for the phone up front you have to pay it monthly. I rather have a cheaper bill. I know that sounds weird lol. Their phones are pricey too!

I have AT&T and we recently took dh's line off because he barely uses it. We switched his phone over to the gophone service, we pay $25 every 3 months. It's perfect.

Is a lot added on for taxes & fees on top of the $45? Straight Talk was one I was considering as well. The phone I'm looking at uses the Verizon towers so I should have pretty good service.
