No cell phone?

Right now I have a mobile phone. Only because my friend left it to me, and I figured I would try to use it a bit. I haven't given the number out to anyone, so I don't use it really except for emergencies. Now, Courtney and I are looking into what kind of phone service we need in Washington DC. She mentioned that perhaps we could not get home phone service, and just use our cell phones. I think that would work, but I am not sure I really want a cell phone. Are there any pay-as-you-go cell phone plans in the US? Or do I have to have a monthly contract for everything. I would have guessed monthly contract. I am not sure I want to spend that much, and I am not sure I really want to be reachable at all times. Is that stupid?

Ben, I am the most anti-cell phone person that I know, and even I now have one. Just remember that you can always turn it off or just not answer it.

You can always turn it off, but unfortunately they still charge you for it. $40 a month is the cheapest plan we can get, or $35 per person for two phones. That is a lot of PB&J sandwiches. Can't eat minutes.
