    Anyone tried that? I was thinking of using the Amp'd plan. My wife rarely uses hers and I use very few minutes but fairly often.

    Ive always bought my own phone and got the prepaid plan. Such as right now I have a motorola v551 and is a very nice phone with bluetooth, camera, video, mp3 ringtones, speaker phone....The best part is sign it up with cingular and you get free calling to other cing members and if you buy the $100.00 at a time refill they are good for a year! I usually get about 4 months but thats cheaper then any of THEIR plans! DONT sign up for there GO phone. Just buy your own and they will sell you the chip to activate it. If you dont want the V551 I can suggest a cheaper V550 with no video or bluetooth. I got this same setup for my MOM because she never uses the cell hardly but wants one when she travels ... Hope this helps. Brian

    If metro PCS had come out before i got my cingular plan, i would have gone with them. But i used to have Tracfone. And the company blows. I hated having prepaid cause at times i spent upwards of 80 bucks a month.

    My wife has a pay as you go phone she bought a wally world. She charges it up online. I guess it is kinda handy. I would not touch one of those evil things myself . But Joanne likes it.She is not one of those women who has one of those phone apendages thingys growing out of the side of her head. So it works out fine for her. IIRC she pays 30.00 for 90 days service.
    I also bought tose things for my kids.... cuz they said they cant function without a phone....... Told them you are on your own after 90 days.............Makes them responsible for their mouths.:D Love it.... CELL PHONES SUCK!
