Help! : Need Good home phone + Unlimited everything cellphone plan.
My cellphone contract with T-Mobile ends in September and I'm thinking of ditching contractual plans and going for something that I can use without worrying about ETF.
I'm in a family plan with my dad and mom. Dad's retired and at home mostly and mom never takes her cellphone to work.
So I've decided to get a home phone connection for them with national unlimited minutes, and turn their cellphone numbers into prepaid plans, just so that they keep their numbers. But a home phone would make much more sense for them.
As for me, I've decided to go for a talkplan that offers unlimited everything for around $50. The only one I've found so far was Straight Talk, but I've been reading up on them, and have come across A LOT of negative reviews. Does anybody here have any experience with them?
I'm looking for a GSM plan that will offer me unlimited everything for around $50.
It has to be GSM, because I have to be able to use that cellphone abroad.
As for the home phone, the cheapest I've found was $30 from Sage Telecom [sagetelecom.net], which after taxes and all will come to about $40. My goal is to find something that will cost us $30 AFTER all taxes for unlimited national. Is this a realistic price?
We don't care for all the extra premium stuff...
Someone recommended Magic Jack or Ooma, but I don't care to have my dad leave his PC on 24/7 to be able to run Magic jack, and with Ooma and Magic Jack, if his internet stopped working, he'd be without a home phone. And at my parent's age, I don't want them worrying over crap like this.
Though that Ooma looks pretty enticing. $170 for unlimited lifetime national calling!
Anyway,I'd appreciate all the help I can get.
P.S- please don't recommend Skype or Google Voice.

Rep unto others as you would have them Rep unto you.
Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world,
but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set,
Uprooting the evil in the fields that we know,
So that those who live after may have clean earth to till.

The cheapest cell phone service I found is from Consumer cellular. But you are limited to the minutes. If you are looking for a smartphone that will give you unlimited text,data and minutes there is StraightTalk from Walmart. $45 flat fee per month, but an initial phone investment up front. And for home phone if you have a cables service available the cheapest will be the magicjack $19.95/yr plus the price of the unit.
