Where can one get a used/cheap cell phone?

I am a social worker in Minneapolis/St. Paul and clients are inquiring about getting cell phones. Many cannot afford traditional new contract = cheap phone plans. (My clients generally also have non-existent or bad credit and are leery of contracts because of not being documented or getting burned before.) Will carriers connect used phones purchased, say, online or at sketchy cell phone stores on the corner? Or are pay-as-you go phones a better option?
