I want to keep a cell phone in my car for use only in emergencies.  I am aware you can call 911 without a cell phone plan, but I would like more flexibility to say call a friend if my car breaks down.  I might use this phone perhaps once per year.

What is the cheapest cell phone plan?

  Ringplus sounds perfect.  However, Ringplus uses CDMA and the my old cell phones use GSM.  Anything equivalent for GSM phones?

  Ringplus appears to be a better company than FreedomPop.  I have an old Sprint flip phone I can use if I can find the charger.

That 'old' Sprint phone can't be more than 5 years old, because it might be old analog tech.

You can get 100 minutes per month from US Mobile on T-Mobile network for $5 per month.

AT&T GoPhone: $0.25/minute plan, need to put $10 on the card, only needs to be used once every three months to keep the balance from expiring. Could keep it around for <$2/year.

I use my cell phone less than once a month.  A word of advice-- charge it!  
Never fails that when I want to use it the battery is dead

I am a light cell user. I would go with Tracfone. A package from HSN.com for a phone, case, car charger and one year service  for less than $100 with 1200 plus minutes, text and data. I got lost on a detour and accessing nav via data put us back on course. All you don't use roll over to your new phone you get the next year with it's one year service.
