I think that's gonna be a little hard...
PagePlus has something for 1200 minutes for $29.95 per line but no free nights...
However, for an additional $10 a month per line they have a plan with unlimited talk and text..
Maybe others here can pipe in if there's anything better.

I think the closest to that is PagePlus with a $12 plan that gives you 250 mins but only comes with 250 texts..

If you don't need data, a very good option for prepaid is Airvoice Wireless which runs on the AT&T network. Unlimited talk and text $35 month. I have it for nearly a year. For some reason it's not so well known.

Any AT&T phone or unlocked GSM like T-Mobile. Does not work with Sprint or Verizon (CDMA)
As for data see original post, this option is for talk and text

Thanks page plus has for $30 month, 1200 min and 1200 texts which is more than enough for me, but was looking for a little cheaper.
