Cell Phone Lossage

I have two cellular phones. One has been bolted into my car since 1987; the other is a newer Nokia digital phone. The car phone works; the two-year-old Nokia needs to be replaced because the power switch is broken. The previous portable cellular phone also only lasted two years.

The problem? If I had two digital phones I could severely cut down my cellular bills. I have astronomical cell phone bills right now; I could lower them to $60/month.

The gotcha? To install a setup in my car to cradle a portable phone in a way similar to the working-but-analog car phone it'd cost me around $350.00. Right now I don't have $350.00.

On the other hand, AT&T Wireless refuses to let me have a decent calling plan because they don't want to support the analog-but-working car phone.

I'm not sure what to do here.
