On Wednesday I was in a car accident. It was raining, and as I pulled out onto a main street my tires lost all traction and I started sliding toward the side of a church on the left side of the street. Then my mini-suv did a 180 turn and I jumped a ditch and landed sideways on a lady's bank. The car doesn't have a scratch on it, and the only thing I hit was a dead branch in one of her bushes. I sat in the car having a panic attack for a long time, then I got out and needed to stop someone to get a cellphone to call my mom who worked nearby and a police officer. Only one, ONE, lady stopped to help me. I'm a 5'3 teenage girl standing in a ditch of ankle deep water in freezing weather with her car sideways on a bank and can't even get any help. After that, I've decided I need a cell phone. I need to be able to call my mom if something happens, and I will be going off to college in the fall and I'll need something to use while I'm on the road. I won't text, and the calls will be a max. of 5 minutes long. I do all of my talking from my home phone, and just need something for an emergency and to get ahold of someone if I need to while out and about. I don't know what kind to get though. We don't have much money to spare at all, and I definitly can't afford a 60.00 a month 2-year plan. I don't know which prepaid plans are good, and it doesn't even have to be prepaid. I just want a decent phone that isn't connected to an expensive plan. $20.00 a month or less is ideal. So what do you all have and what can you reccomend for someone who won't be using it very much?
