Cell Phone Rental for Israel

Next month I am traveling to Israel with my husband and my in-laws and we would like to rent cell phones while we are there. I have done a little research but wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations. We are looking to rent 2 phones (one for each couple) and use is primarily to communicate with each other about meeting up places, if we'll be late or if there has been a problem. I am sure that we'll book a reservation or two if needed, but no long winded calls. We also will not be calling the back to the United States with it.

I have seen that there are different plans usually pay-as-you-go or a bundle of 250minutes - either of those is about all we'll need. No data, no text messages.

Any and all recommendations are welcome, thank you in advance.

From my experience the best cellphone rental company to use in Israel is israel phones. If i remmember correctly they have a rental per day fare (for the phone) and then you just pay for the ammount of minutes you speak, and they have great sevice.
Their website is - http://www.israelphones.com/

I recommend you avoid www.atsisrael.com. There is a large security deposit and it is now two months since the phone was return and the account is still not settled.
