I get a 2gb card for my nokia for around $5-7 delivered.
Check out tigerdirect.com or newegg.com first.
Also make sure you know the max memory card it will take.
My is maxed at 2 which is plenty for me.

I haven't done it yet, but suggest checking with AARP or other senior organizations to see what they know.

Oprah can use Skype to call Antartica or Greenland and I can't get a signal in the mid-Atlantic states!
All around me are cell areas. What I need is a cell which will pick up a signal in bad areas.
What I have now is a Nokia on Altell pay-as-I-go plan as the only way to use it is away from home.
I see on TV people in the desert using cellphones. Why can't I?

I am currently w/AT&T. I have 450 nationwide, no roaming chg. plus, nights & weekends free. (I never go over) I also have rollover minutes & free cell to cell with AT&T cell phones.(Good for calls to my sister)
Costs about $50 a month.
I am becoming a full time RVer and will be traveling all over the country plus, 3 month travel to Canada (extra charge $4+ a month plus $.59 per minute while in Canada - can cancel the minute I get back into US).
1. I have searched all companies and cannot find anything better than the deal that I have now. My contract is up in April, 2010. Is there anything better out there?
2. I'm also looking for a new phone (currently have a motorola razor, as like the small light flip so screen is protected and I don't call someone unintentionally). Don't particularly care for the way I have to hold the phone to hear but, use my jawbone most of the time as am on the road most of the time. I also don't like the battery life and feel like I'm always charging. What is the best phone out there for my future purposes?
Thanks for any and all help,

I found the service to be excellent. I also travel a lot and it seems I just have reception everywhere I go. ST uses the nationwide Verizon network, that's why.
You would probably be okay with the $30 version but I suppose even the unlimited option is cheaper than your current plan.
They are available at Walmart or online and I know you can do an 'automatic refill' online too.

Really more dangerous that driving drunk? Comon be real the reason they state this is because it is against the law to drive without one. Be serious it is better to drive drunk than have a hands free device you need your head examined. It is crazy that you would even say that be respectful. Its a website and its not against the law to talk with a hands free device that is why they put it on the website.

If you don't plan on using your phone that much I know my grandmother has a senior value phone that she likes a lot. It has all the features you're interested in, big buttons, large text, etc. I think it's even hearing aid compatible. Hopefully it's still around in a few years when I'll need it!
