Where To Find Cheap And Affordable Phone Plans

The following page compares the cheapest cell phone plans that are available for smart phones. All plans are priced at $30 or less. There’s a plan for every budget and I want to make sure that you find the right one for yours.

There are many alternatives on the market to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile that offer cheap phone plans. Switching to one of these discount cell phone service providers can literally save you hundreds of dollars a year, particularly if you need a phone plan for one person.  The best thing about these alternative providers is that they all operate on either the Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile networks but at a fraction of the cost that the major carriers charge for service. This type of service provider, one that doesn’t actually have it’s own cellular network, is called a Mobile Virtual Network Operator, or MVNO for short.

In the USA alone, there are over 50 MVNO’s in existence.  With so many companies offering cell phone service, competition among each of them to try and acquire you as a subscriber is very high.  The competition is to your benefit as it means that you can get a very good deal on a cell phone plan if you know where to look.  Fortunately for you, you found this page and know where to look.

Cheapest Mobile Phone Plans Overview

Nearly all providers being compared will allow you to bring your own phone to their network. For instance, if you have an out of contract and paid off in full AT&T compatible phone it can be used with any MVNO that uses AT&T’s network. If it is an unlocked AT&T branded phone it will also likely work on any T-Mobile MVNO. Most universally unlocked phones from Samsung and Motorola will work on all 4 carrier networks, including with their MVNO partners.

I noticed that Republic Wireless was omitted. It piggybacks on T-mobile and Sprint towers with unlimited talk, text and 1 gig for $20/month with $5 for each additional gig.

I just joined Tello. For 14/month, I get unlimited talk/text plus 1GB of LTE data. Now they even have a deal that the first month is only $5.
There is also a coupon for 5% off, coupon code: CL6TMP, not sure how long the coupon will work.
This is the best deal I can find so far.

$1 more per month if you are willing to pay yearly, you can get Mint unlmted call/txt and 2gb LTE data (will be 3gb at end of 1/19).

Hello anyone passing through… Do you happen to know the lowest cost non-VOIP cell service plans? I tried Freedompop, which works, but the call quality was garbled and scratchy.

Some can’t afford paying for a year. I will stop using my phone if companies do this!! Ridiculous business move!

Tmobile burns your plans minutes when using wi-fi calling through google voice. All this wifi calling is a bit confusing, because you can still make wifi calls/text through third party apps such as TextNow. I wish RedPocket mobile would support wifi calling.

Does anyone know of a fixed wireless MVNO unlimited plan that uses Sprint, Att, or Verizon networks? I am in a rural area with no wired access. I need an unlimited data for streaming. Any ideas appreciated.

This page covers plans that are $30 or less per month. I’m in a similar situation as far as being way out in the boonies. There are several MVNOs which offer near- to -true “unlimited data” like you need that will run on the big networks you mentioned. I know both SIMPLE WIRELESS and TOTAL WIRELESS offer plans like this for around $60 per month. Pricey, but hey, my old land line DSL unlimited but very slow internet access runs me $35 a month.

There is another page on this website that covers the kind of true unlimited data you need at:

Is there any way to get out of my T-MOBILE contract to sign up with any of these plans? Also, my phone isn’t paid off.

For CDMA phones (came from Verizon or Sprint, or unlocked CDMA phones), I suggest PagePlus with Unlimited talk and text, 2GB data (and unlimited 2G data after that) for $29.95/mo ($2.95 discount with auto pay, so $26/mo) AND it uses Verizons towers which has the best coverage nationwide. Get their SIM (for 99 cents) and add it to your CDMA compatible phone. For bring your own GSM phones (from AT&T and T-Mobile) I suggest Mint. I also strongly suggest avoiding FreedomPop, uses Sprints tower network which has the worst coverage, and their customer support is useless. Best part about FreedomPop… Read more »

I’m new to the world of smart phones – just bought a iPhone 6S Plus.
How important is having wifi calling? Red Pocket tells me that with my phone this is not possible while Apples tech info says the phone can do it. Mint is very clear that with their system wifi voice is only possible with Android.

Is the benefit of wifi voice that if I’m talking via wifi I’m not burning up time on my Red Pocket account?

Yes, the iPhone supports WiFi calling, but it cannot be used if the carrier or MVNO does not allow WiFi calling. In your case, it seems that WiFi calling is not offered on your Red Pocket plan. If you’re using WiFi calling you are burning your plans minutes. The benefit of WiFi calling is that it can be used when network coverage is poor in your area.

Thank you Joe… can you recommend any plans similar to Red Pocket (price & services) which do support WiFi calling?

Joe, it’s worth updating these lists, with so many changes to offerings. In particular, I noticed the absence of the 2 GB Red Pocket annual package working out to 20.75 monthly (before any special eBay discounts, which seem to be happening frequently lately.) There should also be mention of the $21.25 price for the 3 GB Red Pocket plan, when purchased for 12 months. And, while limited to just ATT & Sprint networks, the new 5 GB annual package is a great bargain at $20 per month that should be included. Even that plans one month price of $30 is… Read more »

They are updated regularly and whenever a company changes it’s plans. They are often updated even though the recently updated may say otherwise. The problem is, those are annual and multi month plans that you’re mentioning. There are already 2 in the list, but I’m not sure if they belong. I think this group deserves it’s own category, but I haven’t figured out the best way to present the data yet. I suppose a new filter can be added to separate monthly from multi-month.
