Least Expensive Cell Phone Service

I just got back from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where I found my cell phone worked and cost no more than the regular rate. I could call other phones in PV and also call the USA, same rate. My cell phone service is Tracfone, and costs me about $8.00 a month, including all taxes. It works just about everywhere in the US,too. Anyone who has a phone at home, one at work, and who doesn't need phone help to shop or cross the street can save a lot of money. Right now you can get a phone with 3 months service for $29.99 (12 minutes) or get a year for $99.99 (450 minutes) and you only pay sales tax and not the $20 or more in phone taxes. you can get extra months for $5.95 ($6.30 with tax) and extra minutes if you need them. If you need more talk time, get the "double minutes for life" which cuts the cost in half.
Why does this inexpensive service get absolutely no respect? It never even gets a mention when comparing phone services. Are you all conspirators for the phone companies? (LOL)
