Cell Phone or Home Phone?

Has anyone experienced adverse effects from making a similar move?

Adverse or not, I can at least share my experience. Over the past several years, our community of friends have all adopted a cell phone-only phone usage. I can honestly say I sometimes wish we had a land line, but there've been no major problems so far. Still, the Wendell Berry-ian part of me wants to chuck my phone in the trash and set up a tin can-and-string phone to all of my friends' homes. Costs less.

How will she know when her friends are going to Sleepaway Camp if they can't text her?

When I used pay-as-you-go, I was with Net10, and I was very happy with it, the coverage was great. When you buy minutes they expire after a certain period of time, so you can still calculate the monthly cost. For instance, if you buy 900 minutes, they'll expire after 90 days (so $30/month). Now I'm on their website and it looks like they've also created a $15/month no-contract monthly plan with 200 minutes (that even roll over from month to month!), so if you don't need more minutes than that, and you don't mind getting charged 0.5 minutes per text message sent or received, then this might be your best deal, so long as you're comfortable with the extent of their network (it's good but not as extensive as, say, Verizon).
