I have the same problem as Marita. Can someone tell us what equation to use.
Horizon has a cell phone plan for \$28.00 per month plus \$.30 per minute with unlimited anytime network minutes and a free flip phone for new customers. How do I put this in an equation. Sprint has a plan for \$30.00 per month plus \$.029 per minute unlimited minutes on weekend, but you must purchase a \$70.00 phone with a \$40.00 rebate and sign up for a 2 year contract.

Which one of these plans is a better deal?

I thought about not making sure you are bind to a contract. multiplying \$28.00 by .30 will give you the total cost. Than do the same with the others to come up with your answer. If someone else has a better way to find the answer, please let them know.
