We ran into a little of that when we first got it. My is a prepaid account and I guess it's around 1.50 per minute. I'm old though, and I remember when cell phones were that much a minute and I still don't talk that much on them either.

Right now, my brother has borrowed it because he is working in Alaska, and is frequently in no cell phone coverage areas.
