    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a good and reliable prepaid
    carrier. My contract with Sprint is almost up, and I don't use my cell
    phone nearly as much as I thought I would. Does anyone have any
    suggestions of a good prepaid service to look into?

    I am considering: Virgin Mobile (who uses Sprint's network, but has
    real sms and their coverage is good around here); Verizon Wireless
    FreeUp, and Easy Speak from T-Mobile. Does anyone have any experience
    with any of these providers... like how is their customer service? Do
    they offer occasional bonuses or extras to current users? How is their
    phone offerings?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    If your sprint phone works go with Virgin Mobil. It will work to
    obviously and is much cheaper than any of the other carriers in my
    expierience. It is only .25 a min.

    <Does anyone have any suggestions for a good and reliable prepaid
    carrier> I got what I think it the neatest deal for prepaid. If you have
    an old Nokia AT&T phone (I had a 5165) I bought an activation on eBay for
    $6.50 that included 80 minutes - this allows activation of the phone and 80
    minutes for 90 days. If you then buy 80 minutes every 3 months (for $20)
    your unused minutes rollover. These are anytime minutes and include roaming
    when not on the AT&T network and you can even call some foreign countries.
    I think it is a deal for someone who needs a cellphone for more than just
    911. Here is a link to an open auction -
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3047859609
    so people may bid it up but he has offered several activations at a time so
    will probably list again. I also did this with Call Plus
    http://www.ecallplus.com/ but it cost $25. DonnaB

    If you're okay with Sprint's coverage, then I'd say go with Virgin, they
    seem to have the best plans for prepaid. If Sprint coverage doesn't
    work for you, then go with Verizon FreeUp.

    Personally, I think prepaid is a ripoff minute-for-minute no matter who
    you go with, but if it works out economically for you then great.

    Yes, Isaiah, it is expensive on a per-minute basis.
    But I keep a Verizon FreeUp phone as a "loaner",
    and I treat it as a simple $15/month plan with carryover minutes.
    The prepay concept seems less expensive that way.

    I've lent that phone to several foreign visitors to use while in the =
    U.S.
    and they've been very appreciative of it.
    They've especially enjoyed the ability to phone home at modest cost.
    To my knowledge, none ever *received* an incoming international call,
    but they liked knowing that their family back home could reach them if =
    the need arose.

    If you are looking for the very least expensive way to keep a cell phone, I have
    found

    http://pharosint.com/

    You can buy a used TDMA/analog AT&T phone off eBay, activate it with Pharos for
    $15 (including 100 minutes), then renew it for $10 (including 25 minutes) every
    3 months. I don't think you can get any lower than $3.33/month for cellular
    service.

    Minutes do roll over. But since renewal minutes cost $0.40, this service is
    best for those who use a cell phone *very* sparingly.
