I have a pay as you go basically just buy one of those phone cards at most grocery/convenience stores put the pin in your phone and you month starts. Of course when you start up you'll have to put in a place of residence easily made up (use a friend or family's) just so the phone is linked to an area code. Pretty sure I saw sprint cards in there last time I was in.
I have a virgin mobile with grandfather clause $25 a mo. 300 min unlm. Txt & data. To get the same plan now is $35. I use a phone app so its basically like unlimited everything.

I found out today Sprint Prepaid has hard data caps. So if I use up 3gb of my 3gb plan, all data goes off, and I then have to pay for more, $10/1gb.

So I think I'll be switching to boost or t-mobile next month, or figure out how to watch less youtube.

1) yes
2) maybe. no if you play games or like having a large screen for movies (although if you dropped ~$400, these reasons would be less crucial). yes if you just browse internets, IM, youtube, office work (sort of).

but then if just relying on wifi for a phone (no service), a laptop only sucks for battery and portability. imo.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
