Fixed. Ideally, it would be possible to use HTML and or tables for clearer formatting, but I resorted to preparing it in Notepad and copy-pasting.
Editing in the browser does not come out right because the browser uses a variable-width font that will drive you crazy trying to get all the tabs lined up.
I'm sure I missed quite a few prepaid options out there, as it is a wiki, anyone can add their own recommendations. It's probably easiest to copy and paste an entire section in to Notepad, make any edits there, then copy-paste back into the web browser. Otherwise, the columns don't stay lined up.
Hey it says that H2O has pay per minute pay as you go from 5¢ to 14¢, so the question is where did you find the rate of 5¢? on their entire website i can only see pay as go minutes from 14¢, can you please clarify and post a link here is possible?
H2O hasn't been promoting their pay-by-the-minute plans for some time now, but you can still purchase the applicable refill card which works out to be 5 cents/minute ($39.99 for 800 minutes) from CallingMart and elsewhere.
I did just notice, however, that both of the "cheaper than 14c/min" refill cards have only a 30 day expiration window, instead of the 90 day expiration window that the smaller cards give you. It doesn't seem to be clear if these are a "real pay go", e.g. if the minutes would roll over if you added another card before the expiration date. One might want to call H2O to double check.
If the minutes expire regardless if you re-top up, then the $29.99/500 and $39.99/800 might be better described as bucket plans, and there'd be no reason at all to go with them now that H2O will give you $25/1000 with their newest plan.
Great, Thanks for the information.
yep it is good to know that $39.99/800 topup is still available but i am not sure if it is of any value if it expires in 30 days or even if it rolls over in 30 days, because then it means you will have to add atleast 4 $10 topups for a year of validity and then the price per min goes up considerably. i guess for now the lowest GSM per min cost if $0.10 for t-mobile. (Net10/Att is there but then they don't allow just sim to be used in unlocked smartphone, att immediately adds data plan or doesn't allow you to access data at all on a smartphone if you change their gophone to smartphone, net10 doesn't allows other phone to be used and their sim only plans work only with unlimited plans.). The main reason i am searching for gsm plans is that i already have a smartphone and want to use it. the pageplus per min plans seems awesome but i will need a new smart phone for it. anyways any help in figuring it out is appreciated.
You can put a smartphone on the GoPhone 10 cents/min plan. They only require data with their postpaid plans. You can either go without data on GoPhone, or add a 30-day data package (up to 500 meg, for $25). If you do have GoPhone without a data plan, be sure to keep cellular data turned off because you would still have pay-per-use data at 1 cent/5KB (customer service will disable data, if you request it).
