  4. There's an error on this page
    Univision Mobile, which could launch as early as next week will have three plans, all of which will include unlimited international texts, unlimited calls to landlines in 70+ countries
    If you look closer at the pages you can see that unlimited calls to landlines in 70+ countries
    is one of three optional extras it is not included with the plans
    International texts are included with all plans

  6. There's cheaper plans available. This is ripping off Latino consumers who will sign up just for the Univision name.

    1. Not all Latino consumers want the cheapest plans. Many of them want best value, and these plans will likely appeal to them. Latinos are not dumb, and the average Latino probably knows more about prepaid service than the average non-Latino.

  8. Charging $45/mo for 3G data and an extra $10/mo for 4G is overpriced
    Most other services include 4G data for $45/mo or less
    And they charge extra for international calling just like every other service

    1. You are not correct. If you bother to look, only Straight Talk provides 2.5 GB of 4G data for $45/month, and they have so many restrictions on data use that most people cannot use it the way they want. ST does not provide free access to music service (no data charges for this) or the free calling to Latin America. At $50/month, Net10 offers a better price than Univision for 4G, but has restrictions like ST and no music streaming included. If you stream, they throttle you or cut off your data like ST. Neither ST or Net10 give unlimited international sms. Simple gives you 3GB of 4G and international sms, but no roaming or music streaming. Metro charges $50 for 2.5GB of 4G, but does not provide the music streaming or free international calling and sms. Brightspot charges $50 with 3GB of 3G, but no 4G, international sms or streaming music. Univision provides more, and usually charges less. I think it will do well because it provides more value for people who call internationally and like the music service.

  9. Just curious, can you fly to Mexico with your T-Mobile phone and get good coverage and service there?

    1. Possibly, but you wouldn't want to. International roaming on T-Mobile prepaid is extremely expensive.

  10. For those needing just unlimted talk and text save $5 by going to another mvno.

    1. Sure, but you will lose roaming on AT&T and other operators. That is worth the $5 for many people, especially for their main cellphone. Would you want your daughter or wife stranded without coverage?
