Re: Looking for service for young son...

We looked at it but it looks like the prepay plans - the minutes run out in a month or the time period on the refill card and have to be reloaded every month to keep the phone active. WalMart also have the other prepaid phones, T-Mobile, Virgin, Net10 and at least one more. All seem to have the same type of plan as StraightTalk.

I know what we want will not make a real profit but hoped there were other prepaid plans that were better and allowed us to control what is allowed. He only needs it for emergencies and maybe a couple texts hence no smart phones or need for web.

Tracfone has 1-year refill options. I think the cheapest you could do with them is the $10 phone (which does only voice and text), then refill online with the 30-minute card (which will be doubled to an hour) at $10, plus the one-year option at $50. Total, $70, 80 minutes, 13 months, or thereabouts.
