Default good prepaid cell phone

Can anyone recommend a good prepaid cell phone provider? It has to be fairly cheap with a good cheap available flip phone. I have Trac Phone now, and it'* getting time to buy a new phone, so I was just wondering if I have any better options other than Trac Phone.

go with a major provider, most of them offer pre-paid options.

I've been happy with Virgin. But then, I don't talk or expect much

I've got a Tracphone and every 4 months when I order 60 minute cards (buy one get one free) they send me another phone free too. Not bad for $20. Works out to $5/mo for me...LOL

http://www.tracfone-orders.com/direc...&techzip=13219

Maybe its because of my zip code?

Anyways go to tracfone.com, wait for the add to pop up (mine is for buy a 450min/yr plan get a free phone for $100) click buy now, wait for the page to load and the 60minute buy one get one is on the left.

Of course the phone is a cheapie and your welcome to one of mine if you want it.
