Thanks guys.  This was very helpful.  I had done some research on the topic
before posting the question, but that didnt tell me everything I needed to
know.  The information from this group enabled me to do a little more targeted
surfing and I found an excellent write up on the topic from PCWord:  It is a couple
of years old, which is usually a killer, but it doesnt look like the
technology has changed much since this was written.
Im not sure yet which way I will go, but I am now an educated consumer, which
is a good start!

Only $20/mo unlimited national calling, or if you have cell service with them
and want to share minutes it's only $10/mo. Killer bargain, and good sound
quality. Supposedly uses older equipment on the towers that's under utilized.
Few extra bucks for them, cheap service, and screw the competition.

(NO, not assembler, my 'rents and high school wouldn't drop $50 on it) in high
school in the early 80s to code video games fast enough to run on an Apple ][.
Breakout in 1536 bytes. And had a PDP 11/35 in Mom's basement in the mid 80s.
Bare metal? Toggle 12 words on the switches, reset address, and hit the run
