Cellphone Plans????

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Got my NOA2 a few days ago and its all starting to feel very real now. One of the things I'll be looking to get sorted ASAP is a cell plan with data. My iPhone was purchased retail unlocked so any sim should work just need a plan to go with it. In the UK we are soooooooo lucky, we get unlined calls texts and data for very little in comparison to the US. Im a huge data user so I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction or good plans?

I am using Straight Talk Mobile. Unlimited Calling & Text + 5GB of 4GLTE data for $45 per month. Prepaid and no contract.

Straight Talk runs on T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon networks. The network you choose will depend on what phone you are using and coverage in you area. I find AT&T has the best network coverage and speeds for me. You can pick up a starter kit from Walmart for around $60 with SIM cards for all networks and SIM sizes. The kit includes one month of service.

I have found the customer service surprisingly good and it is very easy to top up using a credit card or a voucher from Walmart.


Also for an extra 15 dollars per month you get a plan with unlimited international calling. So you can call back home.

i like straight talk mobile also, they have this Bring Yer Own Phone plan - it's dead easy - buy one of their sim cards at walmart (or online at walmart.com) then it's 45 bucks/month, uncapped speed at 5g/month, capped after.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

What do you mean by huge data?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

We'll I'm using about 30GB p/m in the UK but thats because I tether my phone to my laptop a lot. I know I won't be able to do that state side without paying a lot. Id probably be looking at using about 6-10gb per month.

after the 1.5GB (I'm assuming 4G) does it drop to 3G or edge? Also after the 1.5GB is it unlimited?

I use h2owireless, it comes with a variety of plans, but you can get unlimited calls, text, and mms abroad for as little as $20 a month. It uses att network. Data plans aren't bad, but it depends your preference. I like the idea if I am short of money I can spend $10 and still call the UK.

Ntelos also has unlimited plans through greenfrog, but their coverage sucks.

I pay $100 for four smartphone lines with T-mobile.

It gives unlimited talk & messages, and 2.5GB (4G/LTE and then drops to 3G after that).

I think google just started to offer pay per (data) use plan
