READYMOBILE - The right plan for me!
- I have used contract plans for years. Jumping from carrier to carrier. I finally decided to try a prepaid carrier. I chose Readymobile after researching my options. I love my decision and will not go back to a contract plan. I am saving money each month and I don't have a bill in the mail for me at the end of the month with extra charges.

Straight Talk? Maybe...depends
- Just ended my contract with T_Mobile and bought Straight talk. So far is fair as I use my phone lightly, but still have a lot of dropped calls. My son texts a LOT and he will not continue as the texts don't go out or come in in real time They come in bunches and go out the same way..so he says he can't even carry on a conversation texting. Hope it gets better, or we will be gone to something else. Great not having a contract!!!! FREEDOM!!

- 1200 minutes, 1200 texts, 50 kb internet combined with Verizon network at $29.95/mo. Other plans- unlimited or by the minute equally of good value

I LOVE BOOST MOBILE
- i have ALWAYS had prepaid. my first phone was tracfone and they were okay for the year 1999 but i wanted more features. next was amp'd and they were the best and i had an awesome phone (shame they went under). so then i chose cingular (now at&t) because i had a great feature packed phone and wanted to keep prepaid service. i became so angry with trying to deal with them, i ended up smashing the phone and left them. next was boost mobile who i have been with for at least the past 2 years. my phone has NEVER had a dropped call and i only reload my phone card $20 every 3 months. unused minutes roll over while at the same time extending your 90 day period. my motorola i855 is great except picture quality is not that good since its a VGA camera. anyway, you cant beat great service at only $80 a year!

Straight Talk nightmare
- Everything started off right for the first month. The second month I signed up for automatic draft and they took my money but my phone service died and I spent almost all day trying to get thru to a real person. I have come to believe that the whole Straight Talk system is a computer that just keeps you punching in one for English. I don't think there is actually a real person in customer service. That is the way they provide cheaper service. If I ever, at some point am able to actually connect to a real human being I plan to give them a piece of my mind. Not too happy with Straight Talk and would not recommend it to any one.

Att the worst
- I just spent the last 3 hrs. on phone with att,got disconnected 3 times they called me back once, we resoved nothing, I have been a customer for 7 yrs. and that means nothing so I think I will pay the disconnect fees at 10$ a month and go pre-paid. STAY AWAY FROM ATT !!!!!!!!! will screw you in a heart beat

- Straight talk said there would be a 5 minute wait, 1 hr 45 minutes later I finally hung up, the next day, 10 minute wait, same thing, I went to Walmart, they were on hold for 50 minutes, I gave up, I still don't have access, they said the web site would be faster, NOT, it is under construction. I am looking for another plan

3 ST phones have SD & USB>computer conn.
- The biggest ding I have with ST phones, which you must purchase, is that only the 3 top of of the line phones have USB up/download media capabilities and a SD memory slot. Maybe they'll come-out with some added phones.

- I like it. Good signal. Cheap service, cheaper since I got 300 minutes free when my phone was activated and there was no activation fee. I specially like that the phone displays minutes and time used. There are no nasty surprises with Net10. Whatever plan you get, it's 10 cents a minute, no roaming charges, 3 cents for texts and 15 cents for international calls. If I decide to change my mind, which I don't plan to, I lose nothing. With those 300 free minutes, my phone was free.
- Their webpage offers rebates that have already expired.
- Their phone plan is the best but it is hard to get through on their web page or by phone.
- After my experience getting shafted with a Verizon contract (great coverage but pay big $$ and watch out for the early termination BS) I swore never again. T-Mobile is great for my low level of use. Like others wrote: $100 for 1000 minutes over up to a year. No bills, no monthly tax charges, few problems. I walk into the cell phone store once a year, hand them $100 and that's that. To be fair there is one thing I'd like that T-Mobile doesn't have at that price level and it's internet access. My phone would handle it, but it's not in the plan. Also, I just have a prejudice against anything for which I have to pay by the month. To me that's just too much hassle. If they had a plan with internet service for say 50% more, I'd buy it. Contracts are why I haven't bought an iPhone or other 3G and probably won't: I love the hardware, but despise the contracts.

Net 10 sets themselves apart
- While all the prepaid services are competing for price, who offers the lowest rates and charges, Net10 has set themselves apart from the rest. Not only are the consistently ranked among the most affordable, they offer the clearest, most transparent pricing for their calls and texts. No hidden costs, no service or activation fees, its the reason why I went to prepaid (after years of being annoyed at hidden contract costs) and the reason I stick with Net10. They really aren't evil :)

I like Net10
- I think Net10 is a wonderful service. It benefits my lifestyle completely. It is perfect for my children because I can maintain how many minutes they speak on the phone so they don’t blow my pocket book apart! I was scared when my children were getting to the age of needing cellphones that they would just take complete advantage of us but with Net10 we are really able to have control over how much they speak and text. Plus with only ten cents a minutes and 3 cents a text… you just can’t go wrong.
