On somewhat of a side note, I have to say I was a little disappointed with T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 7.0. If they
really wanted to shock today, I would have like to see them offer unlimited calling and texting over wi-fi that does not involve using your minutes. That is a feature that would really benefit their prepaid users such as myself. For the reasons listed above and a few others, I see a future several years down the road where cell phone plans are essentially sold data only and the idea of included texts and minutes will become obsolete. All of your calls and texts will be routed over the various data/internet networks available. At the moment, as it is now all the major carriers offer unlimited talk and text with data allotments being the thing that ultimately determines the cost of your plan. Many MVNO’s and prepaid cell phone plan providers though still offer plans with limits on the amount of texts and minutes you have. One carrier, Republic Wireless, has a heads up on everyone else though as their plans all include unlimited wi-fi calling and texting. In fact, their phones use wi-fi first and only transition to cellular networks when wi-fi is unavailable.
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. Joe's current provider is T-Mobile Prepaid. For inquiries Contact JP
