An inexpensive cellphone plan isn't worth it if the carrier stinks. Here are the best phone plans available from well-reviewed carriers.

Republic offers wi-fi only service very cheap.

Their plans may be much cheaper than this review implies--if you spend most of your time in places with wi-fi available.

I first signed with them because I NEED wi-fi access at home as I live in a dead zone. But about the only time I need cell service is for trips.

They also offer the ability to change plans easily if you need more or fewer features.

Unfortunately, they don't yet support the iPhone.

Is this a review of the worst value for your money plans? Sure looks like it...

Can get the same service as any of these providers for much cheaper on their smaller partner networks. Silly review.

Just what the heck is Verizon's Smartphone Access fee? Pure profit?

T-Mobile's plan is even better than you suggest: There's no throttling until 50 GB, not 30 GB!

Also, Verizon's throttling begins at 22GB, not 50gb.

You are mixed up about throttling for the unlimited plans: T-Mobile's throttling doesn't start until 50 gb (not 30), and Verizon's starts at 22 gb, not 30. (All of which makes T-Mobile's unlimited plan the even better choice.)

What other carriers did you test. I think mine (Ting) beats all the competitors. It's post-pay with no contract. With 4 devices, you could use a monthly aggregate of 2000 minutes, 5000 messages, and 5GB, all for $120.50 before fees/taxes.

They provide credits for referrals.
They have credited us for sim card purchases when we mistakenly ordered the wrong sim or had compatibility issues.
They have always provide super fast service on live chats and support calls.
You can use GSM or CDMA.

I've not been able to find any reasons to switch to any other carrier. You might want to test their service and plans. Thank you!

Over 55 years old? My T-Mobile "over 55" plan gets unlimited everything for a flat $50 a month (must be set up as auto-pay). Verizon was charging me $72 a month for 0.5 gB.
I asked for a better deal. A 20 year history with Verizon did nothing- Profit trumps loyalty. Of all the carriers , Verizon is consistently the most costly. They offered me the same unlimited package for $70 a month. (oh, plus taxes, etc.). I like like my T-mobile account.

Be careful about any 'fees' that are added In Addition to your monthly access fee.
Verizon's $20/m fee is ridiculous as their plans are already considered as one of the Most expensive plans available. Also, you'll need to get a New phone so it won't run on GSM phones.

MetroPCS runs on TMo's backbone and the rates are relatively good esp. if you live/work near many Wifi areas and can get Wifi. That'll help reduce your cellular data usage so you can get their unltd calling/text plans with $30/m plan for 2Gb, $40/m ups the data to 5Gb/m and $50/m Unltd data plan. Best thing is that you can switch between one plan to another to fit your needs.
