Prepaid phones

Im getting a prepaid plan and have two questions. First, what GSM service is best, Cingular or T-Mobile? Or would it be better to get Virgin Mobile? And which phone should i get on that carrier?

equivocating: it depends

Depends on where you live. Coverage from these carriers varies from area to area. So maybe if you told us where you live, that might help.

Also, I think your phone options are limited when you choose pre-paid, no? What phones are you deciding between?

You are gonna have to state where you live. Then someone can look in to the coverage maps. What features do you like in phones??? Please be more specific if you want advice

I live just out side of Denver in 80111. I've looked at all the coverage maps and they all seem to be about the same. If there are any little things I should know about on each carrier, please let me know. As for phones, I need a camera phone and would prefer a flip phone. Also, what are unlocked phones? Thanks again.

getting into a newer phone. I do not use my phone all that much, mostly for security. I don't want to pay high prices for something I rarely use. Do any of the readers to this forum have any suggestions?
I would need cheap one person or family plan with two phones.
Thanks for the assistance.
