Ring-a-ding-ding - Phil's Rambling Rants — LiveJournal
i've been using at&t (now cingular) because it had the lowest card rates (used to be $10, now it's $15). i get text messaging and all the other bonuses of cell phones without hafting to pay $40+ a month. i've been thinking about switching plans, but always within the pre-paid line of service.
even without a land-line at home the past couple months it's been all the phone i've needed.
When I first looked into the Cingular prepaid plan, you had to give them more money every month; it was going to end up being more expensive. I formed a bad impression of their prepaid plan because they made it sound like a much better deal than it really was when I read the fine print. That was then and perhaps they have improved now, but the bad impression remains. Also, my mom has a Cingular phone (contract, not prepaid) and the quality of service when I've traveled with her has been poor. TracFone claims to have the best nationwide coverage.
