    Are you looking for a smart phone or just basic cell phone?

    I have the iPhone from Virgin mobile. It's a no-contract pay as you go plan. You pay the full price of the phone up front ($650), but the monthly charge is only $30, and you get 300 minutes with unlimited data and text. Additional minutes are 10 cents each, but if you find yourself going over, you can just get the $40/month plan which gives you 1200 minutes.

    I got my mom a basic cell phone from Virgin as well. $20/month for 400 minutes.

    Overall very pleased with the service.

    I've checked and checked and have no use for a smart phone. I'm just not into that stuff. So a good basic phone at a cheap rate is the way to go. . . I guess I consider myself an extremely low volume phone customer and the pay per month seems the way to go for this reason.

    I used TMobile prepaid plan-pay as you go a few years ago. $100-1000 minutes and good for a year. Just insert the Sim Card to Tmobile or any unlocked phone and you're good to go. You can get Sim Card online for 99cents + tax.

    Well, what do you do if you don't make many calls and don't need a mini-portable game/music player?
