    Most companies have a "pay-as-you-go" system where you simply purchase minutes and add them to your phone. You are not required to sign a "contract" and it is very convenient if you do not use your cell phone very much.

    The only down part of using pay-as-you-go (or prepaid) is that you must purchase the phone at a full price, rather than a discounted price on a monthly term.

    Examples of Prepaid Are As Follows;

    Canada (Fido Mobility)

    United States (T Mobile)

    I still can't decide what I'm gonna do!
    • Bell vs. Fido
    • RAZR V3c vs. Nokia 8801 vs. Nokia 7380


    PM me if you have any suggestions!

    If you are looking for a place to buy prepaid with cash, I suggest walmart or target. They will have several providers with phones. You can also pay cash for refills there. Good bets are tmobile, boost, and net10. Try to avoid daily fees. Be sure to read and understand the coverage, rates, and expirations.
    You can research these companies online as well if you find something you like.

    BTW, Walmart sells starter phones for $20-40

    More info and we can help you further.
    Where do you live and where do you need coverage?
    How much do you want to spend per month on minutes?
    How much do you want to spend on a phone?
    How many minutes will you use per month?
    Do you want to text message? and how often?
    Do you want web browsing on your phone?

    I wouldn't reccommend Virgin Mobile if you don't talk that much. They overcharge for nearly every phone call, voicemail and etc. Net10 Wireless has done well enough for me.

    Agreed, Virgin is expensive. Net10 is a good idea if you are in the 150+ min/month range

    I know this thread is a little old, but for future reference if you don't want to use a credit card, don't go to a TMS(The Mobile Solutions) dealer. They are the only dealers I know of that require credit cards, besides online dealers. TMS I think only sells T-Mobile though, so if you not trying to get T-Mobile, you won't have to worry about 'em.

    You need a good credit report. When I bought my first cell phone I thought I was going to have pay a huge down payment thing, but apparently my mom had added my name to her credit card, so that boosted my credit score.
