What country are you in?

If it's UK then you shouldn't have much of a problem with signal unless
you're in the wilds of Scotland :-)
Most if not all of the network providers also provide sim only options for
contracts or pay as you go services, not usually heavily advertised but
avaliable none the less.

If of course you're not in the UK then please ignore all of the above ;)

Based on what a T-Mobile salesdroid told me, it isn't possible to get their
service without a phone.  So my plan is to do as you suggest:
get their (actually, I haven't fully researched the GSM providers in my
area, so "they" may not be T-Mobile when the dust settles) cheapest phone,
move the sim chip.
