Greetings,

Does anyone have a source for cheap activation, or a low cost card that lasts for a long period of time?

All I find is cost close to $75 to $100 per month with no minutes, or 500 minutes for $500 that expire in 30 to 90 days.

I just want to be able to carry my phone like a rabbit's foot and hope to never use it. In other words, I'd like to find 200 minutes that never expire for $100. Or something like that.

I also have the alpha-pager that mates with the phone and would like to use it as well.

Anyone?

I have had good experience with Outfitter Satellite. Airtime is reasonable and they have some of the best prices for accessories and external antennae. Here is a link to their price list. They have a North American plan that is $200/ 200 minutes for 6 months. They also have a monthly $29.95 plan that is $1.69 a minute.

No worries. Glad I could help. I dealt with them a few years back when Fed grant money was flowing a little more freely. Our system purchased a large number of handhelds for use in the event of infrastructure failure during a hurricane or other large event. I did not want to be the one standing outside in a hurricane to use the phone, so I picked up a bunch of base station/ external antenna kits from Outfitter. Good folks and easy to deal with. Best prices I could find at the time.
