Cell Plans

T-Mobile: “Get More” ~$40 600 minutes, unlimited nights and weekends.
Cingular: “Nation 450 w/ Rollover” ~$40 450 minutes, 5,000 nights and weekends.
Verizon: “America’s Choice” ~$40 400 minutes, unlimited nights and weekends.

And for comparison:

Cingular: “Nation 250” ~$30 250 minutes, 1,000 nights and weekends.

Any recommendations or thoughts? Do all these plans come with effectively free phones? What are the hidden traps?

I don’t want one, but I think I need one. :-(
