A lot of people don't realize that you don't have to have a calling plan. My cell phone costs me $10 a month. It's a pay as you go with a minimum of $10 per month. I don't even get a bill. It is automatically charged to my credit card. It's great for anyone who doesn't talk much but wants the security of having one. I even disconnected my regular landline phone because IT was costing me $40 a month.Lonelyguy said:No, no need for one. I can't justify spending that much for monthly calling plans when I have nobody to call anyway.
