PrepaidCellFilter: Two questions about prepaid cell plans:
1. Can I use a phone I buy off eBay with one of these plans, or is it essential to use the phones provided by the carrier?
2. If I'm mostly interested in texting, which prepaid cell provider would be the best for me?

I'm thinking of ditching my Sprint contract and switching to a prepaid carrier. I only use the cell to call people if there is an emergency and little else.
However, I do like texting and would like to try and choose a plan that allows unlimited or a high number of texts at a reasonable price.
Also, I'd like to have a nicer phone with T9 rather than the cheapo Nokia phones some of these carriers give you.
So, Hive Mind, what say you?
