Which network does good in your area?
For me, I had Verizon previously and the service was good. When we were buying the Straight Talk phones, we bought the ones with "C" in the model number and they work off of Verizon towers. The only change is a cheaper monthly bill.
The only drawback is you have to buy your phone up front.
Some of the smaller phones, if he is just buying for his son to use in what I am guessing would be an emergency situation can go for as low as 19.99. That is if your just looking for a phone and nothing fancy.
