Yup, most banks do charge a monthly service fee.  However, I've found that
Bank of America has an account that works pretty well for me.  No minimum
balance, free ATM, etc.  No monthly fee *if* I direct deposit something
within that statement period.  However they'll hit me up for money if I
visit a live person.

There are probably all sorts of evils with direct deposit, but as long as
I'm working, this becomes essentially an account with no monthly fee.
