Unless you're the type who just has to have the latest and greatest smartphone, it's just crazy to get into a long term contract crammed with hidden fees.
My wife used a Boost Mobile flip phone for a couple years and in December moved her service over to her first Android phone she bought on Amazon. With Boost's shrinkage plan, she'll eventually be paying only $35/month for unlimited voice/text/data, plus I tethered it to her laptop with Easy Tether for just the one-time cost of the app.
Even though the monthly fee for Android phones on Boost is $5 higher than for non-Androids, they did not increase her rate when she did the transfer online herself.
Her Samsung Galaxy Prevail is way faster than my original Verizon Droid that just got off contract. The only downside to her phone is that the camera is fixed-focus and therefore cannot scan bar or QR codes at all, but she never does that.

MetroPCS is a pretty good carrier as well. They offer pretty low prices in comparison to the big name companies..they also do the whole monthly flat rate, so every month, it's the same price. What's neat about MetroPCS is that they actually have some higher end phones too if you really wanted them..gives you some flexibility.
