I hate cell phones. I hate them with the fury of a thousand suns. Nevertheless, my mother has tasked me with the job of Getting Her a Cell Phone. She wants one because she’ll be taking a trip in a couple weeks and would like to have a phone to use while she’s on the road.
She’s a tightwad, so she does not want to get a cheap cell phone plan where she’d, say, pay $20/month for a 100 minutes or something. She says she just wants something to take when she goes out of town, but I know her. She covets a cell phone. She thinks they’re cool. She wants one baaaad. So if she gets one I’m guessing she’ll keep it.
So, given that, can anyone point me in the direction of a reasonable priced prepaid phone that works without roaming charges anywhere in the lower 48? Does such a thing exist?
