Well, after having not used a cell phone plan for about 6 years, my family is deciding on a cell phone plan for us (2 lines). Here's the catch: Budget is $50/month. (price can be negotiable, no higher than 80). It seems almost impossible. I was given the task of finding a good cell phone company. After some Google research, I've thrown out Boost and Verizon as possibilities (not good experiences with Verizon phone at home). Here's what I'm looking for: - Good amount of texts - Decent coverage and calling - Good amount of minutes - Keyboard phone (mainly for texting) The thought of a prepaid plan has crossed my mind, but I'm new to all of this. Can any of you MR members point me in the right direction? I'm kind of in a rush to get one, because college is starting, and I'm probably the only one without a phone (plus, I'm a commuter ). Thanks a lot!
