    PagePlus (a Verizon reseller) is $10 every 90 days, and T-Mobile is $100
    for the first year, but only $10/year after the first.

    The only drawback being that Virgin won't let you use an existing Sprint phone.
    When I switched from T-Mobile postpaid to T-Mobile prepaid, I had no
    trouble getting them to activate my RAZR at no charge.

    Actually it's very expensive compared to T-Mobile and PagePlus.
