Pre-paid cellphones aren't just for loosers anymore

Hmmm, 80minutes for $10 a month? If I wasn't on a family plan I might consider it, especially if I could keep my number. There are also plans that only kick in on the days you actually use your phone.

Does anyone use this? And if so is it working? The comments on the article seem to say that many people do.

    I use a T-Mobile prepaid cellphone. It has cost me $275 for the last 4 years of service, including the phone, and I'm really happy with it. I don't use a whole lot of minutes--I mostly keep my phone for emergencies and quick, necessary calls.

    T-Mobile does this great thing where if you buy a $100 card, which gives you 1000 minutes, any minutes you add on extend the term of your minutes for another year. So, I buy one $100 card for a year, then the week before it's supposed to expire, I buy another $10 card and extend my minutes out for another year. Two years of emergency phone service for $110!

    I use Tracfone. It's working out to be roughly $0.09 per minute, or say, $9 for 100 minutes. It's not difficult at all to get about $0.10 per minute, and so far, I am quite happy with this arrangement.
