This is a question best asked of your local cell phone representative. Different companies will have different rules & regulations….but there should be something that fits your needs available. In B.C. (Canada) I can buy a cell phone for less than $100, and then purchase time as needed – no long term contract, no application process, just buy & use. If you supply your own phone you may run into difficulties finding the right plan – but some research should fill you in on the options available in your particular situation.
