I use Virgin Mobile which works anywhere the Sprint does since the 
service piggy-backs off their network.  They have pre-paid plans where 
you can add extra time via a Top-Up card or via a credit card.  There 
are also no-contract monthly services giving you a certain number of 
minutes for each plus free nights and weekends.  Calls are usually .10 
cents a minute and text messages are .10 cents.  Phone prices range 
between $20 to over $100 depending on features like MP3 playback, 
cameras, and Instant Messengering.  There is a monthly $6 surcharge for 
the prepaid phones and to keep them activated you need to Top-Up once a 
month with a minimum of $20.
