The following table compares all the pay as you go plans that operate on the 4 major wireless network providers, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile.  Whenever possible I tried to list plans that are more than just monthly based, because for the most part, that is what the MVNO tables are generally for.  However, as you review the tables, you’ll see that there are still quite a few 30 day plans listed for various reasons.  In some instances, it seemed the 30 day plan presented a better value than others.  In other cases, no monthly plans are offered, and 90 days is the least amount of time you can buy the pay as you go phone plan for.

The Best Pay As You Go Phone Plans

Compare AT&T pay as you go, Verizon pay as you go, T-Mobile pay as you go, and Sprint pay as you go plans with their respective MVNO counterparts

Need a phone?  The Motorola G4 Plus works with nearly every carrier and MVNO listed in the table.

To everyone: although this is a very valuable website with useful information, always, ALWAYS check on the individual companies websites for the most up to date information. To this site’s moderator do you remove companies or update information (rates, which cell towers usage etc.) from posts of customers or only if you are contacted by the customer. I went through the hassle of writing Ready Mobile and telling them to contact you as I wasn’t sure you would have changed the info (their carrier) if it was only me that contacted you to tell you or you had to hear… Read more »

I keep seeing the H20 paygo card time listed as good for 90 days, but my experience was that it was 60 days.
