    . If you're like me and use a bunch of minutes each month, and not much else, then it's a wonderful alternative. Not to mention, they're no contract!

    Example scenario:
    1 phone, 2000 texts, 100 minutes, 100MB of data = about $21. This is

    I usually fall in each month.

    But what if you want more texts and more minutes?
    1 phone, 4800 texts, 1000 minutes, 100MB of data = about $40. Still not too bad.

    If you use a lot of data and/or make more than 80 hours worth of calls per month (about 2.5 hours a day), this definitely isn't the plan for you. I'd recommend StraightTalk's unlimited plan in that case.

    Another great thing about this is you can have multiple phones on one plan and still be charged inside the tiers. Each new device adds $6 to the monthly bill. So let's say you and your partner both share a plan, you both use 500 minutes each month, 2000 texts, and 200MB of data. This is for each of you. It would cost about $55. That's $55 for two phones or $27.50 each.

    The down side is that you have to buy your own phone. You can bring over any Sprint phone. Don't have one?

    They also have a

    If you have decent Sprint Service (or no sprint service and plenty of Verizon - like I do) then I would suggest giving
