So the family contract is almost up, but we are dissatisfied. Plus the family plan isn't being used to its full potential (just 750 minutes), without any texting or data plans. So I want to buy my own phone and plan (looking into buying without the need of a contract if it's cheaper). I would like unlimited text because living off AIM with wifi is killing me (texts sometimes come up as weird characters and waiting to get home is a pain). Plus I've observed that I use less than 300 minutes over the course of a month (without texting). So maybe I could even go less. I know AT&T and T-Mobile have SIM cards which interests me and they have prepaid/GoPhone plans. Ideas?
