You need to be more specific about your needs for anyone to offer advice. There is no singular carrier that can offer the cheapest service and satisfy every desire you have.. Cheaper service means absolutely nothing if the carrier doesn't have adequate coverage in your area. Your best bet is to talk to family and friends who use cell phones in your local area.

Where do you live? What kind of phone/features do you need?

Currently, there are no roaming fees within the US on any major carrier in the US.

While I am happy w/ Verizon in Florida, I can't say for certain what the coverage/quality would be for you. Best bet is to talk to users in your area.
