Do any of these support tethering or creating a personal hot spot for other devices? I sometimes need to share internet with an iPad or computer. I just switched my iPhone 6 from Verizon (More Everything) to Page Plus Cellular (The 55) and lost my hot spot.

Although not listed here, NationPCS supports tethering.

Total wireless doesn’t but they have some phones with hotspot but u just have to watch how often u use and Verizon mvno aren’t capped anymore

So, you completely left out Tracfone which has had a BYOD option for Verizon CDMA 3G since late 2013.

NET10 has had Verizon LTE BYOD for a while too, mid Jan?

TF is spitting and sputtering into it as well, and several have been activated since mid February.

Steve

TracPhone or Page Plus Cellular are the absolute WORST SERVICES EVER!!!! I’ve had them for years – and can’t wait to leave. Horrible everything – service, customer service, rip off.

Stephen
Guest

I’ve been using Page Plus for about three years now and have not had anything HORRIBLE happen in that time. They are an MVNO, so the service is over the Verizon network and has been rock solid for me.
Customer service via chat is fine, overseas call center like every other MVNO, but with chat there is no language barrier.
1500 minutes, unlimited text, and 1 gig of 4G data for less than $30/month with no contract. Love it!

Thank you for these helpful lists. I have shared them online several times.

I don’t know if other providers do it, but StraightTalk throttles regular service at 5 Mbps down. This should be part of the information provided here.

Are there any Verizon MVNOs that offer unlimited global sms in and out?

Jennifer Lee
Guest

ROK Mobile’s website says they run off of Sprint towers and “a GSM provider” towers. Not Verizon…..

Guest
Guest

New phones on straight talk use ATT and Sprint. Iphone 4, 4s and 5 use Verizon in some areas. The white Galaxy 3 from Walmart uses Verizon.

eddi0

Just spoke to Verizon rep via Chat and she indicated prepaid and postpaid would get same speeds. So $45 (+ taxes) for 2GB of data (not-throttled on their auto-pay), this would seem to be the best value as all other MVNO’s throttle speeds to 5/1 Mbps. Downside is there is taxes to Verizon prepaid whereas I know for personal experience that Page Plus does not charge taxes.

Jeff Nims
Guest

The Selectel plan you have listed is $30, not $55. The $55 plan comes with 3 GB of data plus unlimited t&t.

Forrest Allison

Page plus is advertising plans $10 less expensive than those you mentioned

Steve
Guest

Not worth it! HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE – Page Plus is the WORST!!! Don’t get started with them. You’ll be soooo sorry!!

Namanati Dakar

While I have noticed you stated that Page PLus does offer Unlimited/Unlimited with 1.5 GB 4G LTE speed in the fine print section (which is also unlimited, throttled to 64kbps after 1.5gb), I am curious as to why you did not include that as the cheaper better plan in the main print section as you did others who had less to offer at that comparable price, example: Redpocket and Envie?

does anyone know about rok mobile?

Aaron
Guest

I’ve had Rok Mobile for 6 months or so. No problems. I’ve tried several other MVNO’s and Rok is so far the least hassle, if not the very best price (but still pretty good). They also have a lot of extras including music, life insurance and other free benefits that I’ve mostly ignored. The music selection they give with the service is great, but my experience was that the music app sucked a lot of battery.

Jay
Guest

Do any of these MVNO’s offer Verizon post paid coverage, or only the prepaid Verizon coverage map?

Jon
Guest

NetTalk just announced it has a 40 dollar 10GB plan. I just purchased a Verizon pre-paid Galaxy s4. It’s not activated yet. How long do I have to use Verizon’s $40/$45 2GB plan before I can switch to another MVNO?

Steve
Guest

Have any of you heard about AF Mobile? They have an Unlimited Talk and Unlimited Text plan for $25 and it’s a Verizon MVNO?!

Dan
Guest

The Bluegreenmobile plans are not throttled as indicated. They are full speed 4G LTE.

Drew
Guest

How current is this list? I’m getting tired of at&t mvnos as i think at&t coverage is actually getting worse instead of better. Ever heard of this problem from others?

Tony Myers
Guest

Does any of these MVNOs support wifi calling?

OldFriend

Boom! Mobile allows tethering on the iPhone. Am doing it right now.

Maximus

What does everyone think of Total Wireless? I don’t see anyone talking about it and $33 for 5GB of data and unlimited talk/text seems to be the best deal out there. Any experience with them? Is there a catch?

Arsal
Guest

Have been with Total Wireless for about 3 months. They literally have THE WORST systems in place and TERRIBLE customer service. In just three months I have spent hours fighting with their people on the phone. WORLD’s WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Network though isn’t bad and internet seems to work well. But their systems are awful and they close tickets without resolving and customer service is AWFUL TERRIBLE.

Crewdog
Guest

Arsal,

You are so right. I’ve been with them for 6 months and I’ve had enough. Their customer service is a joke. Nobody there (or in India that is) knows anything. They can only read their prompts on their screens. Unless you have the simplest questions they have no clue. Spoke to 3 different people who didn’t know what an APN was.
What a joke. Not worth the few bucks saved. Run away people!

Boom! Mobile does offer hotspot and visual voice mail for iPhones on the Verizon network only at their 2gb and up plans.

moal

I want to spend less than $11/mo for LTE. I do not need more than 500 megs

VioletVal
Guest

I’d recommend Tracfone. They sell 1 GB of data for $10. If you’re a light user, you can add the data to the $125 yearly plan that includes 1500 minutes, 1500 text messages, and 1500 MB of data. Heavier users can get one of the monthly smartphone plans. Any extra data you purchase would last until you run out of service days.

Anyone know if Net10Wireless and PagePlusCellular have sales taxes or not?

I see Boom on Verizon offer’s Roaming,I live in Kentucky were I go through area’s that Verizon roams on bluegrass cellular ,I had Slectel Wireless but they have stopped the free roaming you have to pay extra for the roaming.im looking for a mvno on Verizon that has a plan like post pay.like Selectel did thanks

Vi Wisdom
Guest

I had Selectel also. Flex card was supposed to be used for roaming charges. I made a handful of test calls which only produced error messages and they said my $10 flex card was depleted. I switched to Boom and now they have no roaming at all.

Robert D Porter

Boom Mobile quietly discontinued roaming according to multiple customer service reps.

has anyone used puppy wireless before? does the signal work well

Robert Twigg
Guest
Puppy Wireless, owned by Unified Signal, runs on the Verizon Wireless network. All Verizon MVNOs use the same network and have the same signal strength and reliability. They require a postpaid phone and use the towers used by Verizon Wireless prepaid. They used to have fantastic customer service and an online account management dashboard that was excellent. The customer service has degraded some lately but the dashboard is still in place and can handle nearly everything you would need. Really the only differentiating factors between Verizon Wireless MVNOs are plan pricing and customer service. That said I have used Puppy… Read more »

The ad above for Boom claims “voice and data roaming including”. I attempted to confirm with Boom and was told they do not offer roaming, so the ad above is misleading and incorrect.

Chet

For Total Wireless, if you forgo the autopay discount and buy a monthly pin from Walmart or Walmart.com, there is a bonus Gig thrown in. You basically get a GB for under $2 by buying the pin card 5GB + 1GB.

Carl Falcone

I have been with pure talk USA an AT&T mvno for almost 2 years now the customer service is great and the price is very good considering for $35 a month with all taxes and fees I get 5 gigs of LTE data however recently I have been in areas where AT&T indoor coverage hasn’t been very good people on Verizon continue to have good service and it’s beginning to frustrate me in addition when I receive videos either from a Verizon sender or another AT&T mvno like cricket the picture is very grainy and distorted I’m not sure if… Read more »

In an article you talked about Verizon doing away with the 5mbps cap. I was wondering if you’ve found out any more about that. I’m a Verizon customer seeking a cheaper solution. Straight talk could not give me an answer.
