    What is the best way. right now I have my parents living with me.
    Very old and don't use a phone much but they still want to get around
    some and I keep giving them my phone incase of emergencies.
    I am on a $29.99 fixed 400 min anytime plan.
    get a plan with 2 phones (is this the same number or 2 numbers)
    add another phone to this plan. (I never go over)
    what is the cheapest way to get 2 phones on sprint?

    thanks big time I need some ideas

    Have you considered looking into a prepaid account through Virgin?

    Prepaid is too cubersome. You have to keep track of the time to replenish
    the account and might cost more than a regular cell phone. If you have to go
    with prepaid, Virgin is possibly among the best deal. I would consider
    "add-a-phone" to the same account (you would get a separate phone #) if it
    costs $10 a phone. AT&T and Cingular currently have that kinds of deal.

    For $7 a month you could get an account with http://www.ecallplus.com/
    Its prepaid. You have to consider adding a phone on your account could
    totaly jack up your account forever, besides resetting your accounts
    contract. Sprint reps are known for forever jacking things up with a "No
    go back to your old plan" deal.

    OR you could use an unactivated phone laying around. Just let em go to
    operator credit card calling. So what if it is only 3 times a year

    Just buy another phone and add it on to your current plan for $20 /
    month. I am not sure if you can add it on to a 400 minute plan
    though, as they don't offer those plans any longer. I thought they
    had a minimum requirement for add-a-phone to be the 500 minute plan.
    That will put you to at least $65/month after the add-a-phone.

    That's why I mentioned the Virgin pre-pay option as it's more cost
    effective, if they don't make a lot of calls.

    SprintPCS family plans are expensive. When I got mine a few years
    ago I was told the minimum family plan is $39.95 per month plus
    $20 for each added phone. You can do much better by getting a
    family plan from Cingular.
