If you're shopping for a cell phone contract on price alone nowadays, you should be buying Sprint. $69.99 for unlimited data, messaging, and calling to every mobile phone in America. No, I'm not a corporate rep-- anymore. Just like I'm no longer a corporate rep for AT&T, USCellular, or anyone else. Stay informed, people.
(No, I'm not going to knock Verizon. I'm not a fan of them, but they have better coverage than anyone, at least out west where I'm at. They're expensive, but in certain places, you get what you pay for.)
