Got a Netcom "kontantkort" pre payed cell for use in Norway.We travel about twice a year so, and using my cell over there puts a nice dent in on the bill.. Got two cells, one private and one business. both are AT&T and I have no complaints.. they work.
I can go into any walmart or radioshack and get a prepayed cell, it costs anything from about twenty to thirty bucs depending on the phone and that gives me 10$ worth of call/text and you can go to just about any gas station or 7-11 and get a "recharge". Ideal for when the inlaws come over or for the kids to have. The cell itself is nothing fancy, but you can make domestic calls and text, but that's about it.
