I've seen a number of recommendations for Straight Talk (www.straighttalk.com). Android phones run from about $150-$350, and $45/month gets you unlimited talk, text, and data.

Even cheaper, if spend most of your time in places with wi-fi and you can live with one of the two phones currently available, is Republic Wireless (republicwireless.com). It's a unique new "Hybrid Calling" technology -- the phone preferentially uses wi-fi instead of the Sprint cellular network whenever the former is available. $19/month, unlimited, with just one catch: if you spend too much time using the cellular network instead of wi-fi (IIRC, too much is ~500 minutes/month). I'm seriously considering this one.
