gophone

AT&T’s prepaid GoPhone segment made a few changes this week which weren’t really advertised for some odd reason. However, it looks like for a limited time, GoPhone is offering $20 phone rebates to new customers. Additionally, the AT&T company has finally added the 2015 Moto E to its lineup. (About time!) Rather than bombarding everyone with two short articles, we’ll take a look at both changes right here! You’re welcome.

Like the highly-advertised MetroPCS, GoSmart Mobile uses T-Mobile’s network and is actually also owned by the Uncarrier. It’s easy to forget about GoSmart, as the company doesn’t have any particularly good deals or really all that many promotions and such for customers. In fact, we hardly ever write about it at all. However, it has come to my attention that GoSmart recently added a new plan to its lineup which might interest some Facebook users.

Launched in September 2014, US Mobile has a rather unusual plan structure which lets customers tailor the plans to their own needs. The company operates on the idea that customers shouldn’t have to pay for things they don’t’ really need (no matter how much we’ve been trained to think we do) and so aside from texting, there are no unlimited options. The company is owned by GSM Nation and runs on T-Mobile’s network. The company is actually set up pretty similar to Ting, except it is fully prepaid instead of postpaid.

Prepaid phone carriers, whether they’re MVNOs or subsidiary sections of the Big Four, are absolutely flooded with entry-level devices which aren’t going to really impress but should still get the job done.

AT&T prepaid subsidiary Cricket Wireless recently added a new phone to its lineup, but I’m not even sure that it’s much worth mentioning. The ZTE Sonata 2 is a mildly under-powered entry-level device designed for people who want a smartphone, but don’t really care much about the quality.

With the massive number of prepaid MVNOs and carrier options, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all and even harder to compare and decide which company is the right one for you. So, every once in a while we’re going to go through and do a Face-off of two popular companies, comparing plans and services to help you better decide.

Today, we’ll look at Boost Mobile, a Sprint-owned prepaid brand, and MetroPCS, a T-Mobile brand. It’s worth noting that both companies—Boost Mobile especially—have a habit of changing their plans around significantly, so I will be including links to both sites just in case.
