Which cell phone company do you recommend?

Well I'm almost 16 and I've gone quite a while without a cell phone. My mom doesn't want to pay for a plan and won't pay for a phone for me in general. Because of this, I've had a Tracfone since I was about 13 and had gotten sick of it by the time I was 14. So here I am, turning 16 in less than a month, and am DYING for a phone. I'm currently on the hunt for a job. I have an application in at Wegmans and am on the "prefered list", so I have a pretty good chance of getting in. Obviously I'll be making minimum wage and I'm quite a busy person, so I don't have any idea of how much I'll be making every month. Anyways, I wanted to know what one of the nicer, yet cheaper phone companies are. I have been looking at Sprint, but the plan I would like to get (which includes unlimited texting, because that's really all I care about :P) is $69.99. So I was wondering if you guys could tell me what the best company is for me, and maybe if you're feeling nice, tell me a specific plan and how much it costs. I'd appreciate it! :)

Verizon Wireless is pretty cheap, though their coverage sucks, so Att is much better coverage/service, but Verizon is much cheaper.

I remember Tracfone, it was great when I was young, but yeah, time to move on. I recommend AT&T, as it is the best over all. And with AT&T GoPhone "Pick Your Plan", you don't have to have a contract, and you can pay cash at the AT&T store... More

at&t because it's as good as verizon and it doesn't cost as much and it's a really good service and good signals.

first...don't make you decision solely based on price...afterall, whats the point in having all the bells and whistles if you don't have cellular service to be able to use them. contact you local carriers and get detailed coverage maps for your area. this may be tricky because most places want to hand you a generic...
