Have you looked at the handy Prepaid Comparison ChartOriginally Posted by blackjackel
I don't really care about the coverage, I'm looking for the absolute cheapest, best I can find is 10 cents a minute. I also wouldn't like my minutes expiring soon so that would help, but serious flat out, which is the bare bones cheapest per minute? (no extra stuff like $1 every time you use it...etc.)
Ok thats per minute wireless, What about which prepaid is cheapest for WIFI and DATA?
I just got an iphone, pwned and unlocked it and looking to use it for prepaid
woah, that's definitely a bookmark worthy link, thanks so much!
Since you don't care about coverage, a free phone without active service would be the cheapest.Originally Posted by blackjackel
You HAVE to care about coverage. Without coverage, the service is worthless. Personally, I'd pay 25 cpm for reliable coverage versus 1 cpm for no coverage.
You either have coverage or you have Sprint native, you can't have both.
PAYG rules; contracts are for fools.
Just be aware that the above link is not all inclusive. There are quite a few GSM MVNOs that aren't on the list (like Tuyo, Red Pocket Mobile, etc.)Originally Posted by blackjackel
I e-mailed the person regarding these and it based on his response if the company doesn't have a coverage map, he is less likely to post the company specifics. Both Tuyo and Red Pocket Mobile don't have a coverage map on their respective websites although Tuyo uses the T-Mobile prepaid coverage map and Red Pocket Mobile uses the AT&T prepaid coverage map.

To clarify, Tuyo uses the non-roaming (native) portion of the T-Mobile prepaid coverage map.Originally Posted by lmcjipo
How hard is it to provide a coverage map, or at least specifiy what it is? It's not rocket science! Missing information makes it difficult to keep current (I am not going to call them every week to see what changed). But if enough people ask me to add them I probably will.Originally Posted by lmcjipo
