Pay as you go phones?
    #8867371 - 09/02/08 07:55 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Ugh.  So I'm dead broke and my regular cell phone got shut off permanently.

I didn't think it would be that bad, since I fucking hate talking on the phone, but it turns out not having one at all in a MAJOR inconvenience.  I've thought about getting a home phone for awhile, but that kinda seems like it would suck and I don't know how much I would have to pay monthly, or if I would need to get a contract I'd be obligated to stay in for awhile.

Anyways, I was wondering if any of you have any experience with pay as you go phones and could make some recommendations on what to get, where to get it, and how much to expect to pay.  I don't want this for a long term solution, just something to patch me over so I don't go fucking crazy not being able to get a hold of anyone.

I use Net10. They seem like a pretty good deal.

Ya, basically.  I need something for like a month or maybe 2 for cheap that's gonna let me get a few 1-5 minute conversations in.  All I really want is, "Hi!  What are you doing?  Let's hang out.  Ok, bye."

I hate having to drop in on people's houses unannounced, and this whole using facebook and email to keep in contact thing is NOT working out.  I'm going fucking stir crazy in my house.

Wow, just looked at their site.

Cheapest phone with shipping is $25, and they all come with 300 minutes and 60 days of service.  I think I found what I'm gonna get after I scrounge up $25 somehow :lol:

Looks like they sell 'em at Walmart, too!  I may have to make a drive pretty soon here!

Thanks for the tip Baby Hitler!

I have a Virgin mobile phne that is about 7.99 bucks a month minimum charge at 10 cents a minute. The minimum covers 60 minutes, so if you don't go over that it is pretty cheap. The way I use it, I am still usually only a couple of bucks over minimum. I have been pleased with the service, and the price. The phone wasn't free but I got el cheapo for 39.95 and it has worked fine for over a year. Even though I have a work allowance and could get a blackberry or some such crap, I keep my cheapo. I don't WANT to be always available - I use it for outbound service mainly.

Yeah, I got mine at Wal-Mart. You can also buy more minutes online through the website.

I hate talking on the phone, so I use this phone, with the 24.99 plan. Its actually cheaper for me than getting a contract since I only use 100-200 minuets a month max.

http://www.virginmobileusa.com/rates/month.do

http://www.virginmobileusa.com/phones/phoneDetail.do?skuId=VMLX14

The phone is 9.99, and it comes with 9.99 worth of talk time. When that runs out, just sign up for the monthly no contract "plan".

I was actually looking into getting a pay-as-you-go phone soon too. My mom was the primary on my last phone plan and since she died in May, my dad has just paid the bill and used the phone. The plan is up in September and my brother is going to cancel the plan and put my dad on his plan. My problem is BAD credit so I can't just get a new plan without paying a huge deposit.

I looked into a few verizon plans and their pay-as-you-go plans included verizon to verizon calls. If you know the people you will be calling certain plans give you free minutes for certain things. I don't know if you text at all but some phones require you to pay for additional minutes.

Ya that net10 is only 5 cents per text, which is less than I paid under contract!  I thought that was pretty cool.
