This site is very easy to follow. I am planning on getting a prepaid phone as soon as my contract with Verizon is up. I pay $30 for 100 minutes, and extra for texts. I'm thinking of going with platinumtel.

I don't see why anybody would even consider a contract plan from one of the major carriers when they can get UNLIMITED minutes for $40 a month.

Great article on emergency phones. I just bought my mom a prepaid Tracfone for emergencies so that she can stick it in her glove compartment and forget about it. Tracfone is the cheapest and for about $80 a year she can have a phone in case she breaks down.

Thanks for comparing all these prepaid phones. Straight Talk is the one I eventually went with. For $45 a month I get unlimited talk and since it’s on the Verizon network, the coverage is unreal.
