Thanks for the information.

I could imagine having a smart(er) phone, but not without some experience of having a cell phone at all, which is much of the appeal of the Tracfone.

A friend who has had cell phones for years moved recently and is between houses, so he and his wife have “go” plans with AT&T. They sound very complicated, but he is charged $1 for any day with any call (in or out), nothing otherwise; his wife gets charged 25¢/minute for any call but nothing else. Their minutes expire, and there are tricky (seemed to me) rules governing the whole thing.

Pete says his usage is such that he will probably get a contract shortly, as he is spending too much this way.
