So, I've been talking to the folks, and they said I could get one of thoes Pre-Paid cell phones.
Does anyone have any experience with them? How do they work? How long is it until you lose your minutes? How much $? ;)
Questions, Questions! :D

Well, I bought two Virgin Mobile pre paid phones from Best Buy for "the Moms" for Christmas. After a lot of investigation, it was the best deal.
The phone starts off with $10.
The first 10 minutes used are 25 cents each. Any other minutes beyond that for the day is only 10 cents.
Your money never expires as long as you add at least $20 ever 90 days. When you add money, it just gets added to your balance, so you never loose any monies already added.
You can set it to auto-recharge when the balance gets low.
The on-line account info is great!
It uses the Sprint PCS network. That was the deciding factor since it has one of the best services.
Check it out... I thought it was the best deal.
