View Full Version : Help me find a one-month wireless plan

07-14-2007, 06:23 PM
My parents-in-law live outside the US, and they're going to be back in the States for about a month later this year. I'd love to get them a wireless phone while they're here, since they'll be all over the known universe.

Can anyone recommend an easy way to make this work? Prepaid plans all seem to be ripoffs, but the alternative seems to be a 2-year contract.

Suggestions? Unlocked phone? Decent prepaid plans? Good cancellation?

Did you try calling your own provider and explaining the situation and see what customer service might be able to offer? Obviously, this probably isn't going to be something in the regular promotional literature. Hopefully, you get someone in customer service that is interested in helping and at least tries to see if anything can be done rather than reading off a script.

It's worth a shot if you haven't already tried it tho.

I went to the Cingular store and they weren't very helpful. I'll try the direct call, maybe that will get me some love.
