Cheap, Non-Conventional Cell Phone Plans

When people think of cell phone plans, people assume that they have to use one of the big name companies – AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile. But did you know that the cheaper options, such as Mint Mobile, can give you the same (if not better) quality for cheaper?

I switched over to Mint Mobile over a year ago, and it’s been great! Mint Mobile actually does not have its own network – it uses T-Mobile’s network for its coverage and data speeds. I pay $30/month for my 10 GB plan, and my husband pays $15/month for his 4 GB plan. I got to keep my phone number, and keep my phone. And this price is significantly cheaper than what we were paying with Verizon, which was around $120 a month for the both of us!

Other companies that do the same include: Ting Mobile, that uses the T-Mobile Network; Consumer Cellular, that uses AT&T and the T-Mobile Network; and Tello, that also uses T-Mobile Network.

Here are a couple options and their lowest offers. Each of these also have other options with larger data plans, for higher costs.

Not sure which one to choose? I would recommend going to each website, see if they have coverage in your area, then price compare. Also, see how much data you use every month. Many people opt for unlimited data because it “sounds like a good deal,” but if you’re primarily using your phone on WiFi, you might be able to save more money by purchasing a lower data plan.

“But Veronica, is the service still good?”

Yes, it still works well! Remember that these cell phone plans use the network from the Big Wireless companies. I would still recommend that you go onto the cell phone plan’s website, put in your zip code, and see how the coverage is in your area.

“Will they pay me out of my current cell phone contract?”

That’s going to be based on each company. With a quick Google search, I found that Mint Mobile will not pay you out of your current cell phone contract. But do you r research when you look into what company will work best for you.

Happy saving!
