We pay like 94 bucks a month for the two phones. Unlimited minutes.

I used to use pre-paid tracphones for ~$20-30/month each for me and teen daughter.

When txting started to take over her life, we needed to switch to a plan that had a better data plan. We chose Virgin Mobile. We get two phones for ~$52/mo. The price on the plan we use has gone up for new customers to ~$30/mo each.

We get unlimited data and txt and 300 mins/month. Only once have I had to purchase more talk minutes, and there was a family crisis on the other side of the country.

For voice, you can use Skype or one of the cheap internet phone plans.
