When asked how a million-dollar buyers on eBay makes his money, the answer sounded simple enough:

"He concentrates on buying high end items - airplanes, airplane gear, motorcycles, cars and motorhomes."

 I use Tracfone, the non android version and it costs less than $9 a month. I get about 100 minutes which is all I need. Where I live it uses the ATT network. I have an LG. It is what I call a dumb phone. It has a smart phone screen, but it is not a true smartfone. When I buy minutes, I get triple minutes for the life of the phone. If a person talked a lot, it would be better to go with one of the unlimited minutes deals. My wife has a Net10 phone which is owned by Tracfone. We pay about $15.50 a month and she gets 200 minutes each month. Minutes roll over if not used. I had the same plan but had amassed over 4,000 minutes so I went to a more basic plan. My phone cost $50. I picked it up at Best Buy.  
Wanted to follow up on this. Like I said in prior post we used Tracfone for a year or so. I think all our major problems started when we got a new phone and ported the number so that we could text easier and use some of the data features. If you plan on just using it for voice communication you might be OK as they seem to have that part down pretty good. Sorry to be so negative in the first post, the support is bad though and has totally turned me off.

We have since switched our phones to Republic Wireless ($10 to $25 per month depending on plan) and my son is now paying for his own phone and went with T-mobile ($50)/month. T-Mobile is way too expensive, but its my sons money and he wanted a Windows Phone on T-Mobile so whatever...

You should be OK with just voice for tracfone so long as you don't transfer numbers or need any tech support for internet connections or anything. 

Can't think why you'd need a $60 phone. I use tracfone for certain things I do and the inexpensive LG phone works great for calls and text, although I wouldn't care to surf the web for more than 5 minutes on the tiny screen (about 1.25 x 2"). I think I paid $29 or something like that at Safeway, plus it came with a 100-minute card.

Other options don't include buying a phone at all - for instance, setting up a Skype number or using a "temporary phone number" service like TossableDigits, or an app like Burner. People use these when they're selling on Craigslist, eBay, belong to dating services, etc. And, if your friend already has her own cell phone, she could set it up so that any calls forwarded from these numbers have their own unique ring tone.

Easiest of all might be to check with your existing service (landline or cell) about setting up another line for you that you could then forward to your friend, or ring back to yourself when you don't need her help. Again, you (or she) could set up the called phone to ring with a unique tone. You could then cancel this number whenever you no longer need it.

For a more comprehensive solution that might be useful to you in a lot of other ways related to business and travel activities, you might want to look at Grasshopper. Again, you wouldn't need to buy any phones, and with their $24/mo plan (500 minutes), you get...well, look it over. I wouldn't consider the $12/mo plan at 6.5 cents per minute. 

Republic Wireless is a network that offers unlimited text, calls, and data!!!  But it looks like its areas of service are primarily on the east coast.  

Boost mobile.  

Virgin Mobile.  Here are their plans:
$35/month: Unlimited Data, Talk, & Text.  250MB.  High speed, 3G/4G data.

To understand what you get with the different amounts of gigabytes and megabytes, use this calculator.  The GBs and MBs are calculated in terms of hours.  So 1 GB gives you 44 hours of web searching.  Anyway, try this calculator.

from Wikipedia on 4G:

Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint Corporation all use 4G LTE (or Long-Term Evolution) Only Sprint still utilizes WiMAX, but plans to end its use of WiMax by 2015.[236]

On September 20, 2007, Verizon Wireless announced plans for a joint effort with the Vodafone Group to transition its networks to the 4G standard LTE. On December 9, 2008, Verizon Wireless announced their intentions to build and roll out an LTE network by the end of 2009. Since then, Verizon Wireless has said that they will start their roll out by the end of 2010.

Sprint offers a 3G/4G connection plan, currently[when?] available in select cities in the United States.[47] It delivers rates up to 10 Mbit/s. Sprint has also launched an LTE network in early 2012.[237]

Verizon Wireless has announced[when?] that it plans to augment its CDMA2000-based EV-DO 3G network in the United States with LTE, and is supposed to complete a rollout of 175 cities by the end of 2011, two thirds of the US population by mid-2012, and cover[citation needed] the existing 3G network by the end of 2013.[238] AT&T, along with Verizon Wireless, has chosen to migrate toward LTE from 2G/GSM and 3G/HSPA by 2011.[239]

Sprint had deployed WiMAX technology which it has labeled 4G as of October 2008. It was the first US carrier to offer a WiMAX phone.[240]
The U.S. FCC is exploring[when?] the possibility of deployment and operation of a nationwide 4G public safety network which would allow first responders to seamlessly communicate between agencies and across geographies, regardless of devices. In June 2010 the FCC released a comprehensive white paper which indicates that the 10 MHz of dedicated spectrum currently allocated from the 1700 MHz spectrum for public safety will provide adequate capacity and performance necessary for normal communications as well as serious emergency situations.[241]
International LTE Roaming: AT&T signed LTE roaming agreement with EE on December 17, 2013.[231]
