What's the best deal on a no-contract phone plan?
I want to get my teenage son a phone for his birthday. Who has the best deal?
$80/year is a decent price but just so you know TracFone doesn't always use Verizon towers, they also use AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
Another phone plan is Page plus(uses Verizon towers exclusively) where for also $80/year you get 2000 minutes to spread over the whole year(non data plan service).
If you want unlimited data/texts and are OK with 300 minutes/month of voice then I'd suggest Virgin Mobile(which uses the Sprint network) price is $30(with iPhone) or $35/month. They also have totally unlimited plans for more/month.
For coverage I really like Verizon but if your not that dependent on having coverage everywhere then Sprint might be OK too.read more collapse
I bought a TracFone @ WalMart for $20. It costs about $20 every 90 days to renew the service and add some extra minutes, which I never use up and they roll over. Uses the Verizon network so coverage is decent, even way up here in rural MT. So now I am paying about $80/yr. as opposed to about $60/mo. w/Verizon contract.
This is not a smartphone. It is primarily to have w/me in the car or recreating and for emergency use.read more collapse
@crowbite: $19.99 for 90 days of service & 60 additional minutes here: https://www.tracfone.com/direct/Purchase?payGo=true&app=TRACFONE&lang=en
Also, when I purchased my TracFone I got Double Minutes for the life of the phone every time I re-up. They also offer deals via text message and a coupon book good for a couple years with the initial purchase of the phone. Very competitive IMO.read more collapse
