Which one? 

Why?

Where are you located?  

If I were to get one, I'd need it to have good coverage for suburban north of Philly area.

TY.

I have boost mobile (thru sprint) no contract. Starts off at 50 dollars a month unlimited text, call and web. And every six months of un time bills it goes down 5 dollars until it hits 35 a month. I live in the city and for me it works great. My family lives in the country and it works there too

 Never had a contract on a cell....dont believe in them.  I dont even use my credits up for 6mths on prepaid LOL.  I dislike cell phones and never answer them unless its the school number or my husbands / home phone...oh and its not a smart phone ...I dislike them even more :-)

My friend has a no contract phone through AT&T for about $50 mthly including internet. She paid $400 for her IPhone and just pays $50 per month.. It's like a Pay as You Go plan but I do believe it has a different name.

I use net10. 

Because the cost of a cell phone is atrocious. I can't imagine throwing money away like that.

I'm in the Boston area.

I have never dropped a call, the cost to me was the initial $17 then $30 every 2 months.

I got my son a no contract plan through TMobile and used one of our old phones. The only reason contract plans are so expensive is because it wraps the cost of a phone into the contract timeline. There isn't a difference in actual service.

I have Virgin Mobil. Every 90 days, I pay $30 to add mins to my phone. I don't really use my cell phone unless I am away from home, or in an emergency (car breaks down on the highway). I am from the Buffalo NY area. Virgin Mobil has national coverage and I am able to use my phone everywhere I go, even traveling. The only place my phone doesn't work is in rural areas that don't have cell towers.

 I had  aTracFone --$20.00 for three months and I never used  all the minutes. I could call anywhere. I didn't subscribe to texting because I didn't see the need for it.  All it was needed for was phone calls,and I could take pictures. LOL.
