Pure TalkUSA has quietly cut the price of their top plan from $43.95 to $40.95. The plan includes unlimited voice minutes, unlimited SMS and 1 GB of data. As far as I can tell there hasn't been an announcement of the change by Pure TalkUSA. I first heard of it from a Pure TalkUSA customer who let me know that they had been charged the $40.95 price for his plan renewal. The Pure TalkUSA website has been updated with the new price confirming that the change is for real.
In addition to the lower price, $40.95 plan, which used to be limited to 600 MMS, now includes unlimited MMS.
Additional data is available at a price of $10 for 100 MB. Pure Talk used to automatically add 100 MB and charge the user $10 when they ran out of data. In another positive change, $40.95 plan customers can now choose whether they want their data to be cut off when they reach 1 GB or if they prefer to get and be charged for overage data as needed..
