Will they get much use or are they more for backup? I gave my company-paid phone up when I resigned my job recently, and wanted to go without, but my husband really wanted me to have one just in case. I ended up going with an AT&T pay-as-you-go, buying the cheapest phone they had (I think it was $29). It's $1 a day for the first call you make, plus $0.10 per minute. I put $25 on it when I bought it, and they threw in an additional $30 in minutes. They require that you add a minimum of $15 every three months. The money that's left over at the end of the three months "rolls over" when you recharge. This has worked well for me, because I don't use it most days. It probably wouldn't be economical if you anticipate every-day use, though.
