For years, I have had Net 10 and noticed recently that they are charging more than the 5 cents per text and 10 cents per minute for talk like they used to. I would buy a $30 card for 300 min and I have been able to stretch that out. I don't want a contract phone and would like to stay under $40 per month, if possible.

I have read many posts regarding prepaid cell phone companies but I wanted to get some real feedback from current customers from Cricket, Page Plus or similar companies. From what I have read, they both use Verizon's network and can use CDMA (non-SIM card) phones. I realize I would have to get another phone but I don't need anything fancy, just talk and text. I live in San Antonio but will to keep my NY phone#.

Cricket doesn't use Verizon's network natively as they have their own network. Page Plus is a Verizon MVNO so yes, they use Verizon's network.

An option might be Virgin Mobile and their $25/mo. Beyond Talk plan: Cell Phone Plans - Pay As You Go and Prepaid | Virgin Mobile

^^They're also CDMA, but they do offer an Android phone as well as a Blackberry.
