I swear by Tracfone prepaid myself. I can by airtime in cards of just about any size. A card for 40 units (minutes) of airtime is $19.95 US, and is good for 60 days. Or, for $89 US, you can buy a card that keeps the phone active for a year, with 150 minutes included. Any units, or minutes, that you don't use before the time expires rolls over once you get a airtime card, and if you get the card early, any time you have left rolls over too.
All the tracfones have a monitor on the phones screen that tells you constantly how much time you have remaining and the date that you will need a new card.
And my favorite part...they don't own any towers, they just lease everyone elses..so the phones will work darn near everywhere, and there are no roaming fees, in your home area or not. 1 unit is 1 minute, anywhere and everywhere.
I don't use my phone a great deal, but I do use it. Especially to call family to avoid long distance charges on my home phone. A person that uses a cell phone a lot will easily spend more on a prepaid, but from the way you say you use it, prepaid is the way to go.
