I need to make some babies so I can get on the cheaper family plan.

Most of you must make some good coin to tolerate $2400 a year just for phone bills. I paid that in rent 20 years ago.

$64 after tax and all per month unlimited everything for my blackberry on boostmobile
dropped my at&t after they refused to compete
walmart has $45 unlimited a month
the only reason to pay the big bill is to always have the latest and greatest phone
but you can use unlocked phones on boostmobile

OMG, their coverage area is pathetic, no wonder they are cheap cause you can never use the phone on the go.

I live about 60 miles from Minneapolis and never loose coverage.
My deer-stand is about 150 miles more north and i get full bars.
I know that some of the cheaper boost phones only work on Nextel network.
You have to get the ones that say on the front that it works on the Sprint network.
My deer-stand is miles from anywhere basically mid state and I can surf the web and get calls.
I don't notice a difference from at&t, but Minnesota might be different compared other states.
One thing I like is it's $60 a month plus sales tax, so basically $64.
now my old plan with at&t was say $59 plus tax and some other tax plus a 411 and a service charge and a tax, so it was never less than $80.
I have only had them for six months so far and its been a positive experience.

Need some feedback here, so which you think is the better deal for someone getting their first phone not knowing exactly what they'll want and like?

$35/month 300 anytime min, unlimited text/web but $300 for prepaid phone

or

$45/month 300 anytime min, unlimited night/weekend/text, 25MB data($.10/MB over) with $20 phone but 2yr contract
