    Yes. They Bill for inbound. In the USA we do not have a "caller pays"
    system. The caller doesn' pay extra to call to a mobile phone, so the
    mobile owner pays for the call.

    Net 10 requires you use their phone. A Net 10 SIM will not work in a
    different phone.

    No, MetroPCS is prepaid. You prepay $30-$45 and they give you
    unlimited calling for a month. There's no contract, no credit check,
    no nothing, just pay your money and use the service.

    The problems with MetroPCS are slightly different. The first
    problem is they have coverage in only a few cities, and even
    in those cities the coverage isn't always wonderful. The
    second problem is that they are a CDMA carrier, so you would
    need to buy a CDMA phone to use with them. A GSM phone
    won't work.

    Page Plus (www.pagepluscellular.com) offers unlimited prepaid for $2.49
    US/day, but they don't use GSM, they're a CDMA carrier, so you'll need to
    get a CDMA phone from them. Unfortunately, they're a tiny company that
    resells Verizon service, and has very few dealers. You usually need to buy
    their service online.

    It's easy ... but you have a few steps to go through. I suggest a visit
    to Target (a discount store (very popluar in USA) and get a Verizon
    Inpulse phone. Charge it up. Activate with Verizon ... ("over the air")
    and call the 800 number for PagePlus. Buy enough airtime for your visit,
    somehow. Done.
