Plans: With plans ranging from pre-paid, family plans, individual and business plans, they also offer several to meet your calling needs. They do offer a free basic phone with most plans, but if you want anything that uses data, web or video, you have to pay for it yourself. Many of the plans charge roaming rates when you call outside your service area. The good news is that you can make a call from out of state, but the bad news is you will pay a different rate for that call than you will from calls made in your coverage area.
