I just switched to a new company Ting because I needed a smartphone plan that was cheaper than any of these options. Ting uses Sprint's networks and allows you to choose plans depending on usage, and if you use less than you expect they give you a credit. It's no contract. I still have a house phone and access to WIFI so I can easily minimize my data and calls, so mine is coming out to about $20 a month with tax and all. They are offering $25 off new phones with this link https://zbo4gognd1.ting.com/
