    No cheap DMFL for CDMA area?

    I have been looking for a deal on DMFL instead of spending $50 for a card.
    I am in a CDMA area.

    I don't have a particular phone that I am wanting. Any new phone that includes DMFL would be fine if it is <<$40.
    I don't find them at tracfone.com or on eBay.
    The deals that I find are for GSM phones.
    I see a lot of GSM phones with DMFL for <$20.

    The DEAL for my zip is a LG 200CR + DMFL for $49.99 that includes 0 minutes.

    Do you have any SHOPKO stores near you ? Last week they had the LG3280 on sale for $24.99. If you can find one of these excellent phones and buy the DMFL card you will be set for a long time. You may have to bite the bullet and buy the LG200CR...
    You may want to take a look at Page Plus, (CDMA). Their non-roaming coverage is now huge. ( the Page Plus coverage map is not up to date) They use the Verizon prepaid network.http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/do...agetype=prepay

    Nope. No SHOPKO.
    I have found TF at WalMart & KMart. Zip 59715.

    I have a PagePlus phone. Works great. It just doesn't do right for me to make one 1 minute call every day. That is $1.10 per minute.

    I have a TF that I use for my check-in. I am just looking for cheaper than $0.20 / minute for the times I do need to make other calls.

    I punched in zip 59715 and your Page Plus should only cost you between 6-12 cents a minute Where did you come up with that $1.10 ???

    Page Plus has a plan that charges a dollar a day and gives free nights and weekends. The OP needs to call and change to the other plan that charges by the minute but does not have free nights and weekends.

    PagePlus costs $1 for any day I use the phone + 10 cents per minute.
    If I make a 1 minute call per day, it costs $1 + 10 cents = $1.10 per minute.
    If I make a 10 minute call, it costs $1 + 100 cents = $0.20 per minute.
    If I make a 20 minute call, it costs $1 + 200 cents = $0.15 per minute.

    PagePlus is more expensive if I use less than 10 minutes per day.


    TracFone costs 20 cents per minute.
    If I make a 1 minute call, it costs 20 cents.
    If I make a 10 minute call, it costs 200 cents = $0.20 per minute.
    If I make a 20 minute call, it costs 400 cents = $0.20 per minute.


    Is my math right?

    They charge $1 per day + minutes any day I use the phone. $0 if I don't use the phone.

    Change to the standard per-minute plan. The maximum per-minute price is 12c and no daily fee is charged.

    Change your plan to the standard minute plan. No daily fee through Pageplus.
