    So...I got a cell, but considering how little I was using one when I had a plan, I thought it'd be better to have a pay as you go. After looking around, I went with Virgin Mobile. I only have to put $20 in it every 90 days, which is worth at least 160 minutes (or better, depending on if I talk more than 10 minutes in a day). I got the Kyocera K10 Royale...so I'll see how it goes. If I need to go with a plan, I'd probably go with T-Mobile, but I'll see how this goes. I think ruler of B is going to get a TracPhone since she doesn't use her phone all that much.

    I use O2 in the UK, I did have a Nokia 6260 but it broke so I'm using something ancient until my contract expires in January (then I'll get an upgrade to a PDA) :D
    the plan I'm on is really good, £19 a month for 50 mins (don't talk a lot myself) and 500 text messages.

    I'm on O2 online, I can upgrade but waiting for something decent. Costing 15/month for 200 x/network mins and 500.

    not bad.

    Well I have US Cellular :(

    I got the service because it's new to the STLouis Area and no one had it so I couldn't get a referral. (The second mouse gets the cheese I guess...).

    It had a 30 day warranty (Phone and service.) On the 35th day (no kiddin...) the phone wouldn't turn on. It was fully charged earlier that day and just 3 hrs later the phone wouldn't turn on. I brought it back and asked the guy to fix it. He said he couldn't fix it. That there was a problem with one of the microchips inside. He said the phone was recalled. I asked him to exchange my phone. He said since it was past 30 days, they'd have to send my phone in for repair and give me a loaner (looks like it was made in the early 90's...the loaner phone). I fought with the guy for about 5 minutes and told him I wasn't going to do that. Not only because of the inconvenience but all of my contacts are there in my phone!!! I asked for him to exchange the phone and he refused flat-out!

    I called the manager and he also said no. I then went in (again) to talk to the manager face-to-face. He continued saying he would not exchange the phone (which is all I wanted him to do). The magic words were, "Give me the contact info to your district and regional managers". God I hate to be one of those customers buy come on! Take care of your customers. I bought the phone they suggested. Finally - he gave in and exchanged the phone for a new one of the same model. I lost all of my appointments and pictures and ringtones, but I was back at square 1 and okay.

    Well, 30 days from that time, it HAPPENED AGAIN! I'm now on V710 #3. This time I didn't have to fight with anyone to get my phone exchanged. It seems that I set a standard for them to exchange the phone out.

    I would say to learn by my mistake. U.S. Cellular has very poor "Customer Service". They need to shape it up. It may be worth paying the $150 to go somewhere else...!

    Tesco Mobile is good, yeah, it's pretty much the same tariff as O2 and the same network, but Tesco have it cheaper than most other companies.

    As for me, I'm on an O2 Online 100 plan, 100 minutes and 500 texts for £25 a month, had it for nearly 2 years now and it's done me well, I started the contract off with an old Motorola V600 (new then). I then upgraded after a year to a Black Motorola V3 Razr, didn't like it and switched to a Nokia 6230, which I soon grew to hate, so I couldn't get my Razr back, I went all the way back to a Nokia 3510i until the beginning of this week when I got myself a free Motorola L6, lovely little phone. May upgrade at the end of this contract year just to get my fiance a new Siemens D500 for free. :p

    lol i'm not trying to be mean, but most of those providers aren't availible in the US. I had verizon for awhile and had a 30 dollard plan with like 200 or 150 minutes a month, it was really nice though because i had "IN"(talk to any verizon phone free) and everyone i knew had verizon so i never used any minutes. I have a nextel phone now and it through work, but really cheap considering i can't actually call anyone i just have 2 way but its free so can't really beat that. Oh but it does have emergency services so i can call the police and what not. And my dad has Cingular, which i don't really know pricing but he has everything through AT&T so he got a deal. Anyways they really do get good service, he hasn't had a "dropped call" as long as he's been with them. So thats what i know, personally i like verizon, good phones, good service, decent plans.

    Im currently with Orange, whom have jerked me around a little over the last 9 months of my contract. I have niceish V3 Razr Silvr Edition which is terrible at keeping a signal at times and random cuts out. I intend to upgrade to a new plan (Dolphin £35 a month - 550 texts and unlimited texting) and the Nokia N91..when they finally get it out.

    I'm with vodafone AU, they have really good deals but their service is pretty bad. I'm actually considering to switch to Virgin Mobile AU as they have good deals that are value for money. However, I'm not sure what their coverage is like, does anyone know?
