Default Does anyone offer non expiring cell phone minutes?

So my grandmother is 90 these days and still gets around pretty good on her farm but we now make her carry a cell phone with her all the time in case something happens while she is out away from the phone inside. She has never used this phone and is just for emergency to get in touch with one of us should she need help. I am currently paying money every 3 months to add minutes so they don't expire or pay $100 every year for minutes that expire at the end of the year.

I glady pay the $100 for her and the security of it, but does anyone have a minutes plan that doesn't expire if not used or something cheaper than the $100? I have looked but not found anything. I know she can dial 911 at any time without minutes but I want her to be able to get in touch with family if needed.

I use boost and pay $10 every 3 months I think? If you don't talk on the phone a lot, this works out great. On side note, I have done some "customizing" on an HTC TP2 and love it. Use gmail for text and use it to get on here too.

The Gov't provides FREE cell phones.

Me I can't stand the Gov't ...got my mother a TracPhone 19.95 every 3 months...minutes accumulate if not used.

Btw AARP also has an inexpensive program too.
