    Please advise me on either low cost or pre-paid calling plans. I just need a cell phone for occational use like when I get stuck in traffic. Also how does pre-paid work. Also do any pre-paid plans transmit from Hawaii to California. I'm going on a trip very soon, and want to keep in contact with our kids once a day. That is all I want.

    How does pre-paid work?
    You pay in advance. Long distance and roaming are usually not included, but sometimes they are. You must use your minutes within a certain period of time or you forfeit them.

    occational (sic) use like when I get stuck in traffic
    For me, that would be daily. It really sounds like you would benefit more from a cheap monthly plan. You didn't indicate where you live, so I'd advise checking ATT & Verizon.

    Do any pre-paid plans transmit from Hawaii to California?
    A wireless phone is a wireless phone. They work where ever there are wireless towers that operate on the same technology(-ies) as your phone.

    Cingular Wireless currently has a low usage plan and it's not bad at all for $19.95 a month you get 50 anytime minutes and 350 night and weekend minutes. Nationwide long distance is included in this plan also. By the way in my opinion Cingular and Verizon have the best pre-paid type of services, yes other companies have them but they seem to be higher.

    I'm real happy with the Verizon FreeUp prepaid program
    for a Kyocera 2135 trimode (CDMA, PCS & analog) phone that provides almost complete coverage
    to supplement my contract VoiceStream Motorola GSM phone.

    To cut to what I see as the chaste,
    it costs me $15/month if I renew within 60 days
    $10/mo if one is willing to lose roll-over minutes
    and renew before 90 days, when reactivation is 'triggered'.
