cheapest wireless service in California VOICE, DATA or TEXT?

my girlfriend and i have been trying to look for a cheap way to get in touch. in arizona we have cricket communication which is amazingly cheap. but we are moving to san francisco bay area soon, so i wanna look for something affordable there as well. all we really care about is the price, we want the cheapest thing possible. doesn't matter whether it's a text messaging plan, data plan or voice plan. the perfect thing would be a pay as you talk on a text messaging plan. this way we can text each other and use voice for emergencies.

so, does anyone know what's the cheapest wireless solution in sf bay area? 2way pagers are cool, too, but they seem more expensive than voice & text.
