    My DD is 19 now and we carry her on our cell phone plan. This month she can upgrade her phone and needs too, as her phone is old and is a piece of crap. No problem.

    Anyone use this? Do you like it? Have any problems? Sooner or later I think we will have to succumb to 'progress' and get a mobile phone and I like the 'no frills' and 'no contract' approach they are offering. Jitterbug ? Easy to Use, No Contract Mobile Phones for Everyone ?

    I hate going back on a contract but we can't afford our phones, and we use less than 2% of the minutes we're given! We're on the lowest family plan available (2 phones), and we pay $120/mo. Not a whole lot compared to some plans but we just can't afford it anymore. What can I do? I called and...
