So who's your cellular provider? I originally used Primeco, switched over to Sprint PCS, and then went back to Primeco. Well, Primeco is now called US Cellular, and their service is great! I get 300 anytime minutes (which is plenty for me) for $29.99/month, and it also includes free long distance. I did get screwed on a roaming charge recently, but that's life I guess.
Do you even have a cell phone? I don't know what I would do without mine, because I use it all the time. Plus the "roadside assistance" I pay for ($3/month) has helped me a few times when I really needed the help. I don't go anywhere without my cell phone.
