Yeah, I read the article to, but it would still be fun if we could.

My phone is paid for by my employer and my current contract is up the end of this month, so I will be going back to an iPhone as well.
 

T-Mobile has a senior plan. over 55 gets you 2 phone lines for $35 ea. unlimited. the price includes all taxes and fees.

Well, they certainly didn't make the rebate process transparent, and it took some determination on my part to get it. I'm sure they count on people NOT being determined. {#War}

I waited and waited and waited, and finally found a deal on an iPhone6 through CostCo about a year ago. The phone was $100, with a mail-in rebate of $99 (which took FOUR MONTHS to be processed, but still). I have an old Verizon plan (for "civil" employees) that I grandfathered in. I have been VERY happy with the phone. And by getting rid of my landline I actually have lowered my monthly bill.

$8/month for pay-as-you-go phone service from tracfone. Includes some data but I only turn that on when I'm traveling and need to look something up. Otherwise I just wait until I find some wifi.

I don't see mine anymore, but here's a Samsung for $30

Here's the service Scott's talking about.

I had a Tracfone dumbphone for years, loved it. My wife still does, ditto. My kids have done the Tracfone smartphone thing too, great results. Coverage is not perfect, but you're risking $15. If it doesn't work for you walk away and hook your phone up to somebody else.

I recently had some issues with my phone, took it down to Verizon for a fix. They clucked their tongues at me because it was soooo old—V2 vs. the current V6. Whatever. Still works fine. You can pick up last year's phone on eBay from a hipster who's gotta have the latest thing for a pittance. Bonus if they forget to wipe the memory!
