    Im looking into getting a cell phone, but i dont want to get into a monthly plan, i just want to use the calling cards so i only pay for the minutes when i need them. Now my friend did this and he said the only phone you could do it with was a crappy little nokia, without downloadable ring tones or anything like that. Are there any other phones that are used with only calling cards with extra features?

    sorry if i sound like a dipshit, im totally cluelessjavascript:smilie(':confused:')

    I know Verizon offers Pre-Paid plans with some of their phones.

    there was Omnipoint but I think they were bought out by someone else. I think Sprint allows you to do that. There's this mall I go to occasionally and I think I've seen people paying for more minutes in front of this machine.

    Nearly all major service providers offer pre-paid plans. You can use the Nokia 3390 (which has downloadable ringtones) with either Voicestream or Cingular pre-paid. Check your preferred provider's web page for more details.
