    AT&T has this pay-as-you-go plan linked above and there are a number of prepaid plans available. Google "disposable cell phone" of "prepaid cell phone" for info.

    I have had much luck with tracphone. If you do not need phone a lot. I use less than 400 minutes a month a lot less. Tracphone you just buy the minutes you need and every 90 days you need to add min to keep account going. I have the cheapest phone they offered 29.00. I get a 49.99 phone card about when the 90 days are up. They offer some good deals. I just got my wife a double minute plan for the life of the phone. My wife uses here s bit more. I think if you need a lot of air time some of the bigger contracted phone may well suite you.

    PS reception and coverage have been AAA+. you will use more units outside your calling area.

    I have a tracphone too and it seems to work really well. Just fill er up every now and again. If it breaks, they will send you a new one within about 3 days. John

    go to walmart and buy a gophone for 20 bucks. You'll have to activate it and buy minutes, but if you only plan on using it for emergency, you can't get much cheaper than that.

    AT&T and Verizon both offer pay as you go and they offer free nights and weekends as well as free in calling.

    Trak phones are far more expensive in the long run with connect fees and such.

    T-Mobile To Go Pay As You Go is excellent. No commitment you just pay for what you use. Target runs a special every so often, for $100 you get a phone and 1000 minuets ($0.10 per min.) The minutes last for a year and they roll over for another year if you add more. I don’t use a lot of minuets so I have had my phone for 2+ years for $125. That’s works out to being a little over $5 a month. Best around.

    Roger, I have also had excellent service with TMobile. Daughter #2 uses the prepaid service and Target has offered $100. cards for $88. Pretty good deal for a 1000 minutes. Minutes are easy to refill via the cell phone (free call), online, retail store, land line phone, or TMobile dealers. Good company.
