i can't wait until our contract is up. i'm going with PagePlus and their 12 buck plan:
my wife will probably get the $30 one. you can take pretty much any verizon phone with you to PP, which also runs on verizon's towers. we're never doing post-paid again. my experience is only with verizon, but they look for any reason to charge you more, and i think they're a huge ripoff.
