    I've been using AT&T's Free 2 Go prepaid for almost 2 years and am
    considering porting my number (it was originally with Sprint until I noticed
    my usage was 30 min a month) over to T-mobile.

    Anyone out there have experience with T-mobile's prepaid? My usage hasn't
    increased and with $100 I'm good for almost a year.

    Re: T mobile prepaid

    Hi,

    I started on my T-Mobile To Go prepaid a little while ago and I am very
    pleased. As a lot of people say, it is probably the best pre-paid deal
    around. After one spends the first $ 100 in filling up minutes, the
    per-minute charges drop to around 10c and the minutes do not expire for a
    whole year since the last fill-up.

    Just make sure you get the right phone. Ask around before selecting the
    right device. Also check for service coverage in your area first.

    I use around 50-60 minutes a month so it is the ideal deal for me. No sense
    forking out $ 45/month for a "Plan" account!!!

    HTH

    Live long and prosper. Damn the Vulcans for stealing our line.

    I got two pre-paids for family members that hardly ever use the phone.

    It's difficult to judge bc of the infrequency of use. However I also migrated
    my monthly phone which I use daily. In the Philly area, compared to Cingular,
    I'd say tMobile's coverage is not quite as good. So far it's been good enough
    for me though...although that's subject to revision over the coming year.

    I think I just heard that TracPhone has met tMobile's $100/1,000 minutes price.
    Dunno the details, but if it really were comparable, I probably would have gone
    with TracPhone for the better coverage.

    From the www.Net10Wireless.com "About Us" Page:

    ====================================

    NET10 prepaid wireless service is provided by TracFone Wireless, Inc.

    NET10 is a prepaid wireless service offering all local, long distance and
    roaming calls at one low price of 10 cents per minute. All NET10 prepaid
    wireless service is provided by TracFone Wireless, Inc, the nation's largest
    prepaid wireless service provider. NET10 is a pay-as-you-go prepaid wireless
    service. There are no contracts, credit checks, monthly fees, security
    deposits, activation or deactivation charges, or age restrictions.

    TracFone Wireless is a subsidiary of América Móvil (NYSE: AMX, NASDAQ:
    AMOV), Latin America's largest mobile phone provider, with more than 61
    Million wireless subscribers across the continent.

    ====================================


    This new plan will still support rollover of the minutes remaining on the
    phone each renew period just like TracFone(s) do currently. The airtime
    cards will come in following demoninations (retail):

    $30 for 300 minutes and up to 30 days of service
    $60 for 600 minutes and up to 60 days of service
    $180 for 1,800 minutes and up to 6 months of service
    $300 for 3000 minutes and up to 1 year of service

    10 cents a minute alright!

    The main & only network Net10wireles phones will use is Cingular GSM.

    Net10wireless offers several new GSM models, but the one that most interests
    me is the Motorola v171 color flip phone that supports GPRS, chat, and
    mobile internet.

    It will be interesting to see if those functions are not disabled and will
    work on the v171?

    All the models will support text messaging which will be 5 cents per message
    (sending & receiving).

    I feel better now.... definately does not compete with TMobile for my needs.
    With TMobile, the one-year span for $100/1,000 minutes was the key feature.

    I can't tell whether it's the phone or the system, but my v180 on tMobile
    *definately* has less coverage (i.e. fewer bars more of the time) than my
    Cingular TDMA phones had. Phila Pa area...
