I have been cell-phone-free thus far but I am starting to think about getting one. I don't want one for endless yakking (I don't even talk much on the home phone). Just want one for using while travelling, mostly for letting folks who watch our cats call us if they need to. Or to use for a quick call home to let someone know if I'm running late, etc.
I don't want to pay a bunch of $ each month for that. I'm trying to keep my monthly bills to a minimum.
I've done a little looking around so far and a Tracphone is about $14 right now. Someone said a 1 year plan with 400 minutes is $100. I'm not sure if it would be good for long distance calls.
Any other suggestions from cell-phone savvy fooster out there?
