Just an update, I have found what may be my new cellphone provider. SimpleMobile is a GSM provider that allows you to just buy the SIM card and has $40 unlimited talk + text. Anyone here have experience with this service? I'm tempted to give it a try.

SimpleMobile appears to be an MVNO on T-Mobile's network.

Here's a list of MVNO's
in the US along with which network(s) they operate on (includes Defunct operators)

I admit I do not know much about these second-tier providers that piggyback off other networks. Could the T-Mobile acquisition lead to increased rates or incompatibilities for SimpleMobile users?
