Ok, so here's the scoop. I'm a teenager who has been using a Boost mobile prepaid phone for about a year now, and the service and phone aren't as reliable as I'd like them to be. The main draw was how incredibly affordable the prepaid plan was; 10 cents a minute, and 10 cents to send a text. That was it. Minutes don't expire for 3 months.
Unfortunately, I don't have service as often as I need, and the phone itself is starting to get kind of worn out as well. (I bought it off a friend...)
Here's what I'd like: A good new phone around the $100 mark, and a plan that will cost me about the same amount as my current one does. 10 cents a minute, 10 cents to send a text, free to receive, no activation fee or daily costs.
So, I need to find a new prepaid phone and plan that will work for me. At first I thought I knew what I could do; I was under the assumption that T-Mobile offered a prepaid Razr, which is a phone I liked, and the plan seemed pretty much the same. Now, however, upon going to their web-site, it appears they no longer offer the Razr as a prepaid phone. The phone I was looking at for T-Mobile, the Black Stripe, looked like a great phone, and I thought my search was over, but from my research it seems to have gotten some pretty harsh reviews.
I then checked Verizon, and they seemed to charge an arm and a leg for both their phones and plans, so I scratched them off the list. I checked AT&T, and I can get a Razr from them for $130, which isn't too bad, but then I read something about a daily access fee...a dollar every day I make a call. That's ridiculous.
Now, I don't have to have a Razr, it's just that it's a popular phone, and I know it's good. Provided the phone looks cool and sleek, and is around $100, I'm game.
So, can anybody help me out? I feel like I've looked high and low. I can't afford a monthly plan, nor do I want to commit to one. Prepaid really is my only option, but I can't seem to find a provider or phone that works for me. Can anyone recommend something?
Thank you very much!
