Right now I have and All-tel prepaid phone. $1 is deducted from my account every day. For this $1 I get free text messaging, free nights and weekends starting at 9pm, and free favorite number calling. It deducts 5-10 cents for every minute I use it during the day before 9pm. Overall this plan costs me around $35 a month. I would like to know if anyone has better deals. Also better deals could include plans that are slightly more expensive but offer more services like unlimited internet and a certain amount of minutes during the day. Unlimited text messages is one of the higher priorities for me.

I have a prepaid cricket. It costs $1 per day that i use it, and I get make unlimited calls. They also have a $2 per day plan, you get unlimited talk, text, and long distance. They offer a monthly unlimitedd plan that costs about $45 a month. Boost Mobile also has a $50 per month unlimited plan that features the push to talk. I think those are both good deals as there are no restrictions on when or how long you can talk.

from what i can tell cricket seems to offer the best unlimited plan around. I am thinking of ending my service with tmobile. but I am really not sure if the quality of Cricket service is all that great i mean my fear uis i will drop a bunch of calls. but price wise Criket is offering a great price. I also wonder do you have to buy a new phone... I mean it would great if you could just get a plan with them and kee the old phone you have.

Do you receive good service with your plan? I do not have a better monthly rate, actually mine is quite a bit higher than yours. The provider I use is AT&T, even though they are more expensive the coverage I receive is amazing! The other carriers I have used in the past are TMobile, Cricket, and Verizon...out of the 4 I have used, ATT has the best coverage, and they do offer unlimited messaging. I know Cricket does as well, but I am not sure of their prices anymore.

I'm a college student and I travel between my city and my smaller college town. I actually get better service at school than back home in the city. When I first bought my phone I had pretty good service with just All-tel. At&t actually bought out all-tel in May so my coverage expanded. Also, I didn't need to buy a new phone and I still buy all-tel prepaid cards.

well, all cp company are now competing each other and thats a good thing. coz the more they compete the more promo the users can have... like here.. they offered free text messages, free calls and lately the free dou, that you can use your mobile to call unlimited to any landline which is great... coz normally if they offer unlimited calls they only offer within the same network..

I'm with tmobile & I do have unlimited everything. But I'm paying $123/month for it though. I have blackberry pearl 8120 & I get unlimited voice calling, unlimited messaging, emails & internet/data. Around December, it's gonna go down to $85/month or so because after being with them for 22 month, I can get on their promotion.

Hello, I have been a customer with this company since 2003, so it is about 6 years. I used to have the best plan but I screwed it up cuz I renew my contract with different plan. I used pay only $40, with unlimited call and unlimited text both in and out of the country. Now, 0.20cents per text out of the country. Now, I pay $40 but 1000 minutes and free night and free weekend and 500 text. However, I dont really use that much text so it is alright with me

I really don't know what the best dompany would be, as I have only been with tmobile and now verizon. I liked tmobile, except I got dropped calls a lot, and it seemed to be worse inside buildings. Now that I have verizon, I don't get dropped calls, but I do think they are a little high, but they do give good srvice so that is why I am staying with them. My 2 year contract is up in februray, but I can upgrade now according to verizon. I am not sure what to do at this point as I really like verizon. I just wish there monthly fee was lower than what it is. I guess I will just have to check them out to see if I can get the best price for my needs. I don't have a land line so I do need a good phone so I might have to go with more minutes and have more features. Anyway, I really don't know which one you should use. You will just have to use your better judgement. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.
