Ecomobile formerly operated solely as a Sprint MVNO. It still operates on Sprint today but now the company has added service on Verizon and T-Mobile as well. To go with the new network providers the company has also released some new plans. The new plans are rather interesting and they are designed almost like traditional Tracfone plans. With Ecomobile, subscribers purchase a set of points every month. Then, for every minute of talk or MB of data that gets used up, one point gets deducted from your monthly point allotment. Some of the plans seem designed for data lovers, and I think some of you will appreciate that particularly if you are looking for cheap data on Verizon. Lets have a look now at their new monthly plans.
All plans include free global texting. Taxes and fees are included in the price.
- $35 for 3,000 points
- $45 for 5,000 points
- $55 for 7,000 points
If you need more points in a month, additional points can be purchased at a rate of $5 for 500 points. An international add on package appears to be in the works as well.
As far as using Ecomobile with the Sprint or T-Mobile network, pricing doesn't seem to stand out too much one way or another compared to other MVNOs on those networks. Some may still find value though on the $35 and $55 plans. Ecomobile's Sprint and T-Mobile based plans do not have their data throttled.
Pay As You Go
Ecomobile also offers a 30 day pay as you go plan that is available on each network as well. Pricing is 5¢ minute, 2¢ sms text, 10¢ MMS picture message and 10¢/MB of data. Unused balances roll over for the next month as long as you keep your account active. Data speeds are limited to just 3G speeds.
So what do you think of Ecomobile's new cell phone plans? Anybody going to give them a try?
Joe is the founder of BestMVNO.com. He started BestMVNO in 2013, because like many of you, he was unhappy with the high price he was paying his wireless provider for cell phone service. After researching how to cut costs on his phone bill, he came across the terms 'MVNO' and 'prepaid wireless', and learned there was a way he could keep using his favorite network without having to pay a premium price for it. Since then, through BestMVNO.com, Joe has been sharing his research about MVNOs and prepaid wireless so that others can learn how to save money on their own phone bills. Contact JP
