STI is the best deal out there

I've had STI mobile since 2006. I started out paying 10c a minute and 10c a day to keep the line active, which translates to $3.00 a month. If there is a better deal, tell me! I think this is extremely good. With my usage, I pay an average of $3.50 a month, but I use cellphones very lightly. Even in a high use month (for me) I'm way below $10.00. Minutes do not expire, and I consider this a plus. I do not mind at all paying 10 cents a day to keep a line. Quite a bargain in my estimation.
I have not ever had a problem in coverage, anywhere I have traveled in the US. I do admit their customer support is minimal, but not a problem for me since the phone works. Their selection of phones is minimal, but as Steve Blinky Roberts would say "serves its purpose". Not terrible, just not fancy.
The only negative I can think of is that since the beginning of Feb 2013, I am not able to use *555 to find out what my usage is. My email to customer service bounces. Therefore, I wonder if they are even in business anymore. You also cannot click on a phone to order a new one on the web. If they cleaned up their website and did a little better job marketing, I think STI mobile would be a huge player in the pay per use cellphone market.
