More specifically, I was hoping someone would step up and say:

"hey man, try this place over here........only X per month and great service. "

I just don't want to get a cell phone, but there's been a couple times I really needed one.

thanks.

Get one of those prepaid jobs over the internet. $25. No monthly fees and you can use it when you need it.

Don't bother with the local retailers. They will try and upsell you into maintenance contracts, deposits , two year agreements; stuff you do not need.

You might want to try a prepaid phone. They're on the shelves at most major stores like Wal-Mart, Target, etc. There is no monthly plan or contract - the phone comes with some number of minutes on it. Once you use up those minutes, you have to "recharge" it with a minute card, available at gas stations and convenience stores. The minutes are expensive compared to monthly plans, but it's a good deal if you don't want to use it a lot.

Have you found a particular company that has worked well for you on this? Thanks.
