    Sprint has the largest selection of 4G LTE MVNOs and prepaid providers probably because they give great deals to their MVNO partners.  Unfortunately,  many big cities still lack LTE coverage on the Sprint network.  With that being said, having all these MVNOs available has led to some pretty stiff competition among them as well as some very unique plans when compared to offerings on other networks.  One of these unique MVNOs is Republic Wireless which offers unlimited talk and text for $15/month with data being wifi only. FreedomPop has a cell phone plan that offers 200 minutes talk, 500 text and 500 MB of data that is completely free, while Ting allows you to mix and match your own plans by choosing your own amount of voice minutes, a separate allotment of text, and one for data. In other words with Ting, voice, text, and data are a la carte, they don’t come bundled together, you pick and pay for exactly what you want.  You’ll notice below the plans listed for FreedomPop and Republic Wireless are different than what’s mentioned in this writing as I feel the plans below offer more value to the customer.

    In order to make it into this price comparison list database, plans that offered less than 1 GB of data were excluded as the majority of users will likely need more data than that.  Hopefully after you’ve finished exploring this page and the others, you will have a pretty good idea of which no contract cell phone plans best suit your needs.

    Thank you for the comprehensive list and information for each. I had no idea that these other companies use the main companies’ network.

    Awesome info!
    Just a note that the scratch Wireless info is outdated as they have upgraded their passes to included unlimited talk and data passes!

    The “PRICE” column has FreedomPop listed as $20.00, which is confusing because there is indeed a $19.95 initial signup/activation fee for a phone (hotspots in my experience have all {5 of them} been activated for free/no-charge; however after activating a handset/phone, a person can have completely free service which includes 500MB’s of data and 200 Minutes + 500 Texts. An additional 500MB’s of data can easily be obtained by becoming friends with ten other users of FreedomPop, this additional data is applied to your account every month. I should mention that for each “FreedomPop Friend” that you establish, you get… Read more »

    YEP, that’s what they charge for “Tethering” of a phone/handset… unless you jailbreak an ios device and install “TetherMe”.

    I don’t exactly get your point. A new customer brings an eligible phone, pays $19.95/activation, then gets up to 1.5 gb free plus 200 minutes using the FreedomPop voip application (ios and android) which in my opinion still needs some work. Myself, I use MagicJack’s app called MagicApp and don’t really use their voice app. If I do ever use the FP voice app, it is to make test calls. In order to get the full 1.5 GB’s every month you need to 1) connect to ten FreedomPop friends (adds 500 MB’s every month and 2) (this takes a bit… Read more »

    Freedompop is absolutely horrible, do not use this service for any reason under any circumstances. their service is misleading and the call quality is the worst i’ve ever seen. They use VoIP with their own dialer which is difficult to use, and nearly impossible to end a call, having to power the phone off in order to end a call. But that usually isnt not a problem because nearly all calls drop well before you have the chance to end it yourself. They claim unlimited talk and text along with 2Gb of data, however if you use all of your… Read more »

    TPO (http://store.tpo.com) just launched few weeks ago as newest Sprint MVNO. Any thoughts of them? Thanks.

    I use freedompop now. and have been fine for a year. Starting 1 month ago. i was not able to make any phone calls. I can receive calls, but could not call out. I’ve been trying to have them fix this for two weeks now to no avail. So… when it works its great (cheap/free). when it’s not working you’ve better have another spare phone available, or you wil not be using a cell phone.

    Does anyone know if any U. S. version of the Motorola Nexus 6 will work on freedom pop? I’m getting the impression that where you bought the Nexus 6 matters. I know it’s technically capable but I’ve read that Sprint and some Sprint MVNOs, such as FreedomPop, are picky with which BYOP will work or not. Just because it’s capable of working on Sprints network doesn’t mean you’ll be able to activate it on their network. It’s really driving me nuts trying to get a clear answer. In a freedompop forum, freedompop stated that the “Sprint Motorola nexus 6” will… Read more »

    I was browsing the nocontract sub Reddit earlier and noticed someone mentioned tello. It has payg and build your own plan like ting. The best part is that it is cheaper than ting. I haven’t tried it out myself but it has great pricing for low data users. They mention it runs off the sprint network btw. Just a suggestion for the list.

    Some of the cheapest plans listed have no Phone customer service if you have a problem. Everythng is done text style and can be a pain, I had problems with Freedom Pop and after 2 days of trying to get them to understand the problem I dropped them and went to Ting. Ting has some of the best customer service I have ever talked to , short hold times and they really seem to want to keep you as a client.
