Alltel U Prepaid Service
- For those of you who, like me, use very little talktime and loads of texting, Alltel's prepaid U service is by far the best. Great coverage, $1 per day, airtime does not expire. When you run out of money on your account, you get a text message. You simply add more via a prepaid card or Alltel store. Simple and convenient. I recently switched to Virgin Mobile because I began using my talktime more since I drive a truck now. If you're into talktime, as far as prepaid providers go, Virgin Mobile is by far the best. $79.99/month for unlimited talktime to any network plus an additional $10/month for unlimited text. Beats any contract phone to peices.

Pay for mins.in advance, and that's it!
- No per day charges? Extras like camera, radio, higher than normal for slight hearing impediment. Also, only the cheaper phones for prepaid plans....thx!

How 'bout us small users?
- You don't say much about the fact that all these plans require a top-up every 60 or 90 days, even if you haven't used all your minutes. I only use about 20 minutes a month, so after a year I have hundreds of minutes left and my effective rate is about 60 cents a minute. Isn't there any plan that just lets you pay by the day and minute, without the top-up when you don't need it? I had a plan through my company (I paid for it) where I bought the phone from Verizon and paid just for the minutes I used; period. But when I retired, Verizon made me change plans. I have no use for any more than 50 min/month ever.

T-Mobile Prepaid - No surprises
- I definitely like T-Mobile's prepaid, I've had a prepaid for 1-1/2 yrs. I pay $100 and get 1000 minutes good for one year plus they add 15% more. I eliminate a monthly bill plus I don't have to pay the monthly service fees. I'm not a heavy cell user so it works good for me.

Virgin Monthly Plan
- I love Virgin's monthly plan. For $40 I get all the minutes I need. If I ever go over, I have the option of starting my month over at any time rather than paying extra fees. The also have "Sugar Momma" which lets you earn extra minutes. I've been looking into regualr plans again and can't find anything close to the same cost. The only downside to Virgin is that their phones aren't the greatest. Not bad, but not great either.

T mobile To Go GSM prepaid
- T-mobile To Go is great as a second phone. The per-minute charges can be high depending on what you spend up front (.10 to .33, no other fees), but for occasional use it's really cheap. Once I paid the $100 to "go gold" I only have to buy $10 to extend it for another year and my minutes roll over. The downside is very limited coverage in certain areas where I travel--check your locations at their site. Also we get charged for incoming texts (spam). Incoming should be free, like in Europe.

sprint fair & flexible plan
- Sprint's fair & flexible plans are reasonably priced and don't penalize you with crazy overage fees if you exceed your monthly minute allotment. Instead, once you reach your max, you automatically get bumped into the plan that's 1 tier above your current plan, so you will get those extra minutes and pay a fixed fee.
ATT contract plan
- We are currently under a 2 year family plan with rollover min. from ATT. I have been extremely happy with this plan as the bills do not very from month to month as they have with every other contract plan that I have been under in the 15 plus years that I have been using a cell phone.

Virgin Mobile works for me
- I have used Virgin Mobile for several years. Their prepaid plan is $20. top up every 3 months. The first 5 calls each day the minutes are 25 cents each. After that they are 10 cents. Since I only use cells for emergencies and short business calls, the plan worked well for me. Thinking I was doing Virgin Mobile a favor, I bought 4 top up cards at a Target store, which would take care of me for a full year. Now guess what?? When I started to use the cards, Virgin Mobile rejected them as being out-of-date! Neither they, or Target would do anything about it! Now I am testing Net 10. With it I get 300 minutes every 2 months for $30 That means 10 cents a minute anytime, anywhere. If they work out ok, I will drop Virgin as a matter of principle!
definitely pay later
- I really dislike prepaid plans. I prefer having the freedom to talk as much as I want and paying the bill afterward. Previously I've had pretty plain plans but I now have one of the "fave 5" plans and I love it. I can have 5 numbers that are anywhere in Canada. So if I am on holidays, I can change my fave 5 numbers so I don't come home to a huge bill.

- I would have to say you'd be hard pressed to find a better a better paln for me than the one I have from Helio. $60 gets me 500 minutes and UNLIMITED EVERYTHING! I average 1300-1400 texts a month, along with at least 100 pic mails. Plus i am a data heavy user with email and web searches and etc. daily. So having unlimited everything is a Godsend!
