I like Boost Mobile. Pay $10 every 90 days and it gets added on to my balance. Don't use my cell phone very often, but figure $3.33/month is worth having it. Love my Sanyo Mirro, but don't think it's available anymore.

Runs on Sprint network.

I think you may have posted this on the wrong forum, but here's a link to an earlier discussion that might provide some answers. There are also other posts on phones that you could find with search.

Yes, it was in the wrong forum. So was the link to the earlier discussion (in human readable format): What's the cheapest cell phone if you don't need minutes?

Both threads are now in the Personal Consumer Issues forum (cellphones).

One of these days I have to sit down and figure out the best plan for my wife and I.

She needs maybe 20m of talk time per month.

I need about 300 to 400m talk per month, and something like 200m of data per month. I currently have Tmobile and really like both the service and my phone. I think I I can buy Straight Talk or Net10 SIM cards for Tmobile.
