The best no-contract phones to choose when you only care about making phone calls.
Prepaid or no-contract phones are the ultimate in low-cost budgeting. Not only is the hardware inexpensive, (especially over time,) but so are the voice, messaging, and data plans. With the prepaid or no-contract crowd, it's usually more about their monthly budget than it is about having the newest gear or most intense services. The phones on this list are the ultimate in simplicity -- and therefore about as cheap as it gets for a cell phone.
