Are there any pre-paid cell phone cards for $10 that I can buy where I won't lose the minutes if I don't use them up. I rarely use my cell phone, and I mean rarely. Right now I buy pre-paid Verizon cards and the minimum is $15. If I don't use those minutes within 30 days, I lose them. Can anyone help? Thank you in advance.

I have a Samsung phone with AT&T , good reception everywhere. pay 25.00 q 3 months. which is 8.33 a month.They have a lot of different plans. Also have a magic Jack phone on my computer, around 40 to start as that pays for first year and the jack. Then it is only 20 a year. Cut out my land line and just have internet, saved a bundle every month. Yes the minutes roll over on the cell with AT&T.
What is good for me, might not be good for others. But Tracfone cellphone has giving me savings that I didn't have with the Contract cellphone company AT&T. Yes, for 12 yrs that I had a contract they charge me arm, leg, and half of my head because I didn't know how I was going to pay my extremely large amount bill. With Tracfone I don't have a contract, and have minutes for life. If you want to lose your savings, go into any other company that is not Tracfone. For me was the best switch.
redhatterb suggested Tracfone. I had Verizon and dropped them like a hot potato and now have a Tracfone.
With Tracfone you pay as you go and your minutes always rollover. I refuse to buy a contract because I don't want to be forced to use the phone in order to use up my minutes.
You can buy an inexpensive Tracfone at several of the dollar stores. Whenever I need to buy minutes, I login to my account online and pay by credit card, or I can add minutes right from my phone. At one point when I had the phone, by mistake I had used up all my minutes and the Tracfone went dead. Then I paid for more minutes, and it was up and running again.
I live in New York State and called a girlfriend that lives in NM and the other friend lives in AZ. Go with a Tracfone, you won't be disappointed.
I use Virgin Mobile and top up online. I think it is currently about .11 per min. I don't use my cell phone much so the $20 I put on it usually lasts several months. Works for me.
Right now I have a Tracfone but after reading the post by foxrun41, I will be looking into AT&T. The reason is that my Tracfone is at double minutes for life (add a 60 minute card, get 120 minutes). The 60 minute cards cost around $20. However, you must add minutes (whether you want/need them or not) every three months or lose your service. I too use my cell rarely so at this time it has over 500 minutes on it from having to add them quarterly. The AT&T deal sounds much better for me.
I had a tracfone years ago and at that time minutes would not roll over. I am glad to know they do now. I piggyback off my daughter in law's phone and pay $15 a month. I am like Kathy, I rarely use one and only need it for emergencies. So looks like this might be a better deal. Thanks redhatterb!
I buy pre paid AT & T phone cards at my super market. last one I bought was for 250 minutes for $20. and the minutes do not have a time limit.
Yes. Check on T-Mobile website. You won't get your 'money's worth' with just $10, though. However, there are several levels of purchase (10, 25, 50, 100 dollars, I think, not positive). Used to be when you purchased over $250 or so of airtime you gained the status of gaining extra minutes. My status is still active so I purchase 100 minutes for $25 and they are good for 6 months or more.
Sometimes you can find the Tracfone for $10.00, and the minutes roll over. The cheapest cart is $20.00 and that is 60 minutes.
If your on a limited income you can apply for a safelink phone they will provide you with a free phone and 250 minutes a month free of charge. Depending on where you live it's different companies but if you want to email me personally I can look up what company you can contact it takes about a week to get the phone and minutes on it
