Sprint lied! Any cheap cell phone plans to heal the hurt?

What is the cheapest cell phone plan in the U.S. available with one of the major carriers, no data wanted or needed, and not a lot of minutes needed either?

My dad was with Sprint who recently canceled their lifetime Pioneer Plan (no annual fee, just pay 35 cents a minute) that was magical for my dad who uses about 15 minutes a year. He is so sad because first of all they lied because it's not lifetime since they canceled it and second of all he has to figure out a new cell phone plan!
He wants the cheapest thing possible with one of the major carriers, really only needs around 100 minutes a year if that and doesn't want data or anything resembling a smartphone. He also doesn't want to pay a lot for a new phone.
He is thinking about doing a T Mobile pay as you go plan that is $100/yr for 1000 minutes and when the year is almost up he can pay $10 every 3 months to keep his minutes active. Can you beat that?
