Verizon isn’t done tweaking its plan offerings, even after the introduction of Verizon Unlimited. Today, the company announced a new addition to its prepaid line-up, a 2GB plan for $40 per month. (more…)
Cricket is giving more data to two of its most popular plans today, yet isn’t adjusting the price. That means more data without paying a dime extra. Cool, right?
You’ll see Cricket’s new plans in the image below, but the two changes target the $40 and $60 plans. The $40 plan now comes with 3GB of data per month instead of 2.5GB, while the $60 plan jumps to 12GB (from 10GB). Also, back in October, Cricket supposedly temporarily upped their $50 plan from 5GB per month to 8GB, but has now locked that in permanently. (more…)
AT&T GoPhone, a prepaid plan that is without a doubt (and has been) one of the best values in the business, will receive a bump in data on Friday to two of its plans. That data bump, as has been the case for years, did not increase the price, leaving your GoPhone plan with more data just because. (more…)
Verizon’s newest prepaid offering is the Moto G Play (or is it Moto G4 Play or Moto G Play DROID?), a low-end prepaid device that costs just $85 at the moment. This phone was first announced back in May with the Moto G4, but was always the bottom tier of the line and not expected to make waves when/if it did arrive here. (more…)
Cricket expanded its prepaid data plan lineup today by adding on a $30 1GB per month option. This new plan will debut on September 9 (tomorrow) alongside their $70, $60, $50, and $40 plans.
The $30 plan includes unlimited talk and text with its 1GB of data. With that in mind, I don’t know why anyone would consider this plan unless they are firmly capped at $30 per month for wireless. Because if you buy the $40 plan with 2.5GB of data and sign-up for autopay, you are only paying $35 per month, since Cricket gives you a $5 autopay discount. (more…)
Recently confirmed to FierceWireless, AT&T is bringing family plans to subscribers of the GoPhone prepaid service. Importantly, for those interested, it is noted that the family plans will be limited to the $45/3GB a month and $60/6GB a month tiers. This decision leaves out anyone using the $30/month option.
As detailed, customers of these upcoming family plans can receive additional money off of their monthly bill, depending on how many additional lines are activated. For example, if one line is added to the plan, you will receive $5 off of your monthly bill. This deduction would be in addition to the $5/month you save if you utilize the auto-pay feature. The discounts do end, though, with the max being a $20 discount for the fifth line activated. (more…)
Last week, sources of ours revealed Verizon’s plan to add a new feature to their prepaid plans called “Always-On Data.” The idea is the same as it is on The Verizon Plan’s new Safety Mode, where customers can go over their allotted data sum at throttled 128Kbps speeds. But there is one added benefit here – it’s included for free and doesn’t require customers to turn it on or off.
Over the weekend, just as our sources said it would, Verizon pushed the new feature live, though they didn’t throw much of a party outside of a blog post. That’s probably because it’s a great feature that doesn’t have the potential to nickel-and-dime customers with overage fees. Instead, it’s just a really nice free add-on that does right by customers who dance near their data limit line each month. Unfair? No more unfair than charging customers $5 on The Verizon Plan for the same benefit. (more…)
