I did just that this past week: I now have a GoPhone. Previously, I had a fairly simple pay-as-you-use-it phone that reached the point where it had to be upgraded. I decided No because (get this) I had no cell usage at home!!! I chose a carrier that had put a tower up just down my road and bought the very simple phone for 19.95 (plus tax) and got the first $10.00 free on activation. My daughters live with their phones on constantly, mine`s just for my needs. My computer is complicated enough as it is. Oh wait - I have 3 of them now.
Yup, plain Jane phone is fine by me.
