straight talk is my recommendation! i switched from metro pcs and virgin mobile to ... StraightTalk (walmart's private label) $45 per month... unlimited data, text & talk (unlimited everything) with no annoying contract at all. in other words pay as you go. their android smart phones are low cost too. my samsung (ZTE) phone is great & cost me only $120 about about year ago. mine, here in Arkansas uses at&t towers combined with TrakPhone.
