T-mobile prepaid has a new program, "Flexpay". Same price and minutes as contract plans, but no contract and no activation fees. No discount on phone, but you can just unlock your cingular phone. Only roaming coverage in Klamath Falls though...
I'd look at the Sprint SERO plan. They have lots of free phones right now. I've had some credit trouble lately, so I was sure I'd have to put a deposit down, but instead they just gave me a spending limit of a couple hundred dollars. Meaning if your bill gets too close to that spending limit, they'll cut you off til you pay it down. Not a big deal at all when the SERO plan is only $30 a month!
TMobile has the best pay as you go, I never heard of the flex plan, and that's even better.
I really can't imagine you are going to find a free phone with any company without any kind of downpayment on a plan. Maybe find a free cellphone on freecycle or something and call tmobile to activate a pay as you go, or the flex plan?
I don't mind a contract. I don't live in Klamath Falls any longer (Portland now), and I don't really want to deal with pay as you go (since the idea is that I don't need to pay up front).
I have some good leads here so far. Thanks very much.
I would check out the SERO plan like the other poster said. If you need a cheap phone, you could probably get one free but it's after rebate. You will probably have to put up a little cash upfront for the phone. Be careful with no money down deals, you might get stuck with fees/charges later.
Virgin Mobile has cheap phones (new)...based on the Sprint network (which is Sero plan too). $20 bucks you get a phone with $20 free airtime. Free shipping. You can buy a minimum number of minutes per month or you can get a regular type plan (100 or more minutes at a set monthly price) No contract, no activation fees, and no deposit.
