    In the midst of a review of my cell phone plan. It seems like companies like AT&T and Verizon have a 450 minute plan, then jump to 900 minutes.
    The 900 minute plan is $10.00 more than my old Altel plan and I had 1,000 minutes with it... unfortunately it can't be continued so I'm reviewing.

    Anybody have a company with about 750 minutes? Who do you guys have, what do you like about them? When does "nights" begin for unlimited talk? Whats bad about it?

    Thanks

    I pay $59 for unlimited minutes with T-Mobile and something like $14.99 for unlimited text messaging.

    Boost Mobile: Runs off Sprint & Nextel networks, unlimited minutes & text & web, nationwide, $45/mo, with a $2/mo discount for using autopay.

    PS. The signal is good even in places most people's phones don't work.

    Hey there -

    Have Verizon's unlimited / talk on any carrier / unlimited text for 89.99. Great deal.
    When Verizon get's the Iphone in November, I'll upgrade to include the media/internet plan and hopefully it will be a better deal than the extra 29.99.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm paying about $50 for 1000 minutes and 400 text messages per month with T Mobile. Though I'm thinking of switching because of the terrible signal. I'll literally lose calls if a truck drives by my house. Plus the iphone looks oh so tempting.

    It really pays to shop around and ask about specials. It's also important to check on signal strength where you live. Many people complain about T-Mobile, but I don't get dropped calls. I switched from AT&T because I couldn't complete a phone call without getting it dropped at least once and sometimes several times (once my call got dropped 3 times during a phone interview). I was paying about $177 for unlimited calling and text messaging at AT&T. Way too much to pay for dropped calls!

    Yeah, AT&T stinks but it's the only network that gives me the coverage I need for business trips. While AT&T dopped calls don't happen to me, I understand how annoying it can be, and why so many switch to Verizon. Still, Verizon doesn't come close to AT&T's national coverage. Both cost about the same for unlimited plans (approx. $160 per month). Luckily, my company pays for most of it.

    Unlimited texts, calls, email and internet and free blackberry is £28 with free home broadband and router thrown in. You have to love the overly competitive UK mobile phone market. icon_surprised.gif

    I'm getting the HTC Evo with Sprint tomorrow. I'm purchasing their 450 minutes plan. Even though 450 minutes might not seem a lot for many, it is unlimited mobile to mobile (any carrier).

    I have a Samsung Myshot camera flip phone that is Blue tooth enabled. I have Cricket service and my monthly bill is $87 a month. It is $45 for the phone service and $40 for the USB internet service. My phone is also internet enabled, though I never use it for that. I have unlimited local, long distance, international, text messaging, picture messaging and the internet service is unlimited. I have had Cricket phone service for over 3 years and the internet service for almost 2 years and have never had a problem. I don't care about or want to own any type of Apple product (though most of you have them and won't be able to use them on the Cricket network) and I won't leave Cricket unless they are not available in an area that I would move to (though now, they are officially national). I've called our sage friends Bill and Doug in Vancouver Canada with no extra charges and they sounded like they were next door, even on their wedding day when I called them. So yea, I love Cricket!!!

    I have Sprint and my phone works where others don't. I have a 450 min plan, nights start at 7 and weekends free. Unlimited text and all the bells (caller ID, voice mail) thrown in. I also have a data plan on my smart phone and it is tethered to my computer as a modem. All for $90/month. I think its kind of expensive but I can't get DSL or broadband where I live.

    I use a regional carrier with great coverage around here and good free nationwide roaming

    after taxes etc I pay $62 per month for:
    500 anytime minutes
    unlimited text
    free minutes 9PM to 6AM and weekends
    unlimited calls to/from my Top 10 list

    data is 1 penny per kilobyte so I dont use internet on my phone

    I could reduce my anytime minutes to 300 and add unlimited internet for 15 bucks more if I wanted to
