US Mobile, a T-Mobile MVNO that allows you to custom build your own cellphone plan has updated its plans to include more data and and some cheaper pricing options.  The updated plans should be live on their website relatively soon (Updated: Plans are now live).

US Mobile's cell phone plans are a bit different than most in that you get to choose your own allotment of texts from a range of options and prices, you can do the same for data and voice.  A detailed breakdown of their à la carte flexible pricing is as follows with the new changes highlighted in bold:

US Mobile Data Options

DATA PRICE
100 MB $2.00
250 MB $5.00
500 MB $9.00
1 GB $15   $12
2 GB  2.5 GB $25.00
5 GB $45.00

US Mobile Texting Options

TEXTS PRICE
100 $2.00
250 $3.00
500 $4.00
1000 $5.00
Unlimited $7.00

International SMS is also included with your plan at no extra charge.

US Mobile Talk

MINUTES PRICE
100 $3.00
250 $7.00  $5
500 $9.00
1000 $11.00
1000  2000 $15.00

$5 and $10 international calling credit add ons are also new options for the talk plans.

The prices shown do no include taxes and fees that you may be charged depending on where you live.  A $2.00 per line monthly service charge is also added to your bill.  Multiple lines and devices can be managed from within one account although there is no special pricing for family plans.

Analysis

Overall I like the changes being implemented here.  You can't argue against cheaper pricing and more data.  The new plans and pricing help to further differentiate the company from its main competitor, Ting Mobile, in the build your own plan niche.  Ting's plans as a whole cost significantly more than US Mobile's for service that utilizes the same parent network, T-Mobile.  Unlike US Mobile, Ting also offers service on Sprints network.

US Mobile's plans seem best suited for low usage users, and those users who don't require all three services, talk, text and data. Those who do need large amounts of talk, text and data bundled together may find service to be cheaper elsewhere.

If you're uncertain if US Mobile is right for you the company does offer a free 30 day service trial with the following rules "If, within 1 month of service, 100 minutes, 100 texts, or 100 mb of data consumption, whichever comes first, you are not completely satisfied with our service and wish to cancel, we will refund your money. (SIM and shipping fees are non-refundable)."  SIM cards cost $3.99.

About US Mobile

US Mobile has been in operation for a little over a year, although the people behind the company have been in the mobile phone business for 5 years having founded GSM Nation, a company with over $125 million in sales.  US Mobile boasts of an in house 24/7 call center, which is not something every MVNO has to offer.  Current wait time for email support is roughly ten minutes.  The company claims to be growing at a good pace.

Did you say that I can get only, for example, 1 GB and no text or phone plan? I don’t use calls or texts, I use Viber and Whatsapp, so I only need GBs.

A couple of differences in the prices shown vs. US Mobile’s Website. US Mobile charges $14 for 1 GB of data, not $12. And 1000 minutes of talk are $10, not $11. I activated my account with them yesterday, and so far everything is hunky-dory!

I just ordered a sim, anyone no of an active forum for us mobile? It’s odd that bestmvno.com is the only thing I could find with recent info about this mvno.

I’m not aware of one, although I’m trying to develop one. The company itself is pretty good with support

it’s too bad they won’t do there own forum on there website, when I asked them a while ago about it they said, “what for?” They did such a good job coping Ting minus the forum. I remember reading they copied Ting so bad the US Mobile’s terms page mentioned Ting in it. (copy paste:)
