No Strings Attached

Calling all contract-phobes: Topp Telecom Inc. has a new, no-contract cellular service, Tracfone, available nationwide. Skipping the hassles of credit checks and deposits, Tracfone customers can cut straight to activation by purchasing Tracfone from local electronics retailers.

Tracfone's prepaid airtime cards come in blocks of 30, 60 or 200 units for $30, $50 or $100, respectively; one unit equals one minute of local calling time. Customers simply purchase an airtime card every 60 days or less in order to maintain cellular service. Nearly 1,000 units can be loaded at a time, and expense tracking is easy with Tracfone's digital display of remaining units. Best of all, unused airtime never expires.
