Looking For An Individual Cell Phone Plan with Unlimited Data
I am currently on a family plan that uses AT&T and can't wait to move on from the god-awful service. I just started working recently, and I am doing some research and trying to determine what is a fair price for what I want.
Here Is A Quick Summary of What I Am Looking For In A Plan
1) Smartphone (with Android OS)
2) Unlimited data and texting
3) Around 500 minutes of calling to landlines (I don't think I need 500, but I definitely don't need anymore than 500).
Some friends of mine were referring me to Sprint, and I went to a local Sprint store today. The representative told me the best I could do would be $74 a month before taxes for an Android-based smart phone. He said I would be receiving unlimited data, texting, mobile calls, 450 minutes anytime for landlines, and I would also get other features included such as SprintTv and free turn-by-turn GPS. The particular phone I was looking at was the EVO 4G Shift. I would also have to sign a 2-year contract.
He did say if I wanted to be in the $60s, I would need to look at Boost Mobile or Virgin Mobile. He said there wouldn't be a contract, but the phone selection would be limited.
I haven't looked at any other carriers yet. I refuse to look at AT&T and T-Mobile, and I know Verizon has great service, but for all the features I want, it would probably cost a decent bit more than Sprint.
Does anyone know of any good specials or deals right now? This is the first time I am getting my own phone and plan, so I am a bit lost with what is good. A friend told me $74 is the best I could do nowadays.
If you can forgo the smartphone, you could always give Straight Talk a look. I have their $30 plan and it rocks. I transfered my number from AT&T in about 3 days and I've have no problems whatsoever. Their unlimited plan is $45/month but if you pay for more months in advance, it goes down a little bit per month.
