The quality is well worth the 45 bucks a month. I'd suggest getting the 80 dollar phone. I think it offers the most for the price. They work off of the verizon towers here in Miles City, so all your friends that have "in calling" or texting will be able to call you or text you free. My friend Wendy and I got our phones about a week apart in November. Hers is still working glitch free, and mine was till I ran it over. I got the 130 dollar phone to replace it, but it's not so great. Keys are a little small. I recommend this service to everyone!
