Hey everyone! As you’ve probably noticed, this month we’ve started to bring back the Prepaid Faceoff posts, where we pit one company against another based on what their promotions and plans look like that week! The series has had a lot of views, and we’re certainly not going to run out of MVNOs anytime soon.

However, I wanted to take a minute today and see what companies you, my awesome readers, are interested in seeing compared and what specific features interest you! Read on and give us some feedback!

VS.

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 Republic Wireless and Scratch Wireless, both companies that use Sprint but have plans that focus on using Wifi for services for little or even free. It’ll be a tough one!

But, here’s how they compare:

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 Page Plus Cellular and Selectel Wireless. Both companies are Verizon MVNOs, which means they are rather similar. However, one (Page Plus) is part of the TracFone conglomerate while the other is not so there are also some major differences, especially in the realm of customer service.

Ayway, here’s how they compare:

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.

Unlike with postpaid contracts, there are far more prepaid companies than you could shake a stick at and all of them have both good and bad qualities. So, every once in a while we’re going to go through and do a Face-off of two groups, examining how they relate and which is better at what things.

Today, we’re going to look at Cricket Wireless and Virgin Mobile. Both companies are actually owned by one of the Big Four and share customer service with those companies. Let’s take a look at how they match up!

Pay-As-You-Go Faceoff: Boost vs. Jump

vs.

Our No. 1 goal here at Prepaid Reviews is to arm you with information necessary to make a decision on your cell phone carrier. A while back, we ran a series of columns called We Help You Decide, in which we profiled various phone users and how each of our featured providers matched up with each one. That’s still a viable source of information, but now we’re taking a step further. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to pit pay-as-you-go plans head to head to see which ones come out ahead. This is strictly for per-minute or per-day plans. The monthly rate plans will duke it out later. Up this week, Boost vs. Jump.
