    Cheapest Pre-Paid Provider?

    Is there a site that provides a listing of pre-paid provider charges?

    My phone is used for emergency use primarily, so monthly minutes are very low...maybe 10 minutes a month if that. And when I do go through more minutes, its only because I have a high credit balance due to low per month usage in the past years.

    I'm also not keen on monthly payments just to keep my phone active. For example, I just picked up a pre-paid no-contract plan in Germany last month for...get this...€15 ($22) keeps my number active for 2 whopping years.

    Then you might consider 7 eleven speakout wireless, as it has the lowest spending, lasts one year. But it's not cheapest it's only lowest monthly spending. Cheapest means best value usually, not necessary lower spending.

    THANKS!

    I'm just at their site now going over the details and info.

    As long as I can top-up on-line or locally when needed, that might be a good plan for me to be on.

    I need to check if it'll work when I'm in the US. Edited to add: calls cannot be made from the US or anywhere outside Canada.

    Looks similar to my ALDI Talk plan in Europe in that it is provided by a similar type of business.

    Some prepaid can roam in the US but at very high rate. Just get a U.S.prepaid when you need it would be better.
