I am a user of prepaid cellphones. I have an LG420G from Tracfone because I like the prepay system for voice. Using their BOGO minutes and the way they add each set of 90 days on to the previous days, I am now paid up for 460 minutes of air time to be used over 450 days of service. I know my usage by looking at the display.
I have a Pentech P7040 with ATT GoPhone because the internet with Tracfone is restricted to what they let you access. ATT is wide open. It is just like using your system at home. By using *777*3# SEND you get your data balance and what you don't use in 30 days, is rolled over if you renew. I buy a big batch every few months and then the minimum to keep the account active.
I also just got a Samsung player and use WIFI around hot spots.
I am personally pleased to see the end of unlimited data. I see too many people with their noses in their gadgets when they should be watching the world around themselves. What I would like to see is the end of unlimited voice. The streets would be safer since people would not feel obligated to talk on their phones 24/7 just because they can.
