I'm thinking of doing this with an iphone. it's like $600 for the phone, but then only $30 a month for unlimited everything and no contract. obviously this saves a lot of money in the long run, but spending such a huge amount of money on the phone sucks.

does reception suck on pre paid phones? can anyone enlighten me?

a friend of mine uses some HTC smart phone on a prepaid service. he loves it and has no problems. he switched to it from metro pcs and says its way better. but i personally dont have any experience with it, so i couldnt tell you for sure.

Most prepaid wireless companies use major networks if you're not purchasing it directly from AT&T, Verizon, etc. so you should be getting the same coverage/reception whether it's prepaid or contract.

I don't know what company you're going to use, but this is a list of prepaid companies and what networks they use. It is kind of an old article so things might have changed since then, but I figure it will at least give you a general idea.

I have one through Boost Mobile, which uses Sprint's shit. It works fine except that I get no service at my girlfriend's near WV.
