    1. I think you can get around the taxes by using callingmart for pins.

  2. Other than the coverage footprint being T-Mobile native only, they are a great company to deal with from my experience.

    1. I agree. I am on Givmobile, their other MVNO that provides upto 8% to charity. They have good customer service and pricing.

  3. Other than the price, is there a difference between Metro PCS unlimited everything for $50 a month and Ptel everything for $60??

    1. Yes there is. The $50 Metro plan is Unlimited LTE, and it includes roaming for voice and text. Ptel $60 plan is caped at 4 GB LTE, than throttled to 128kbps, Also no roaming on Ptel, native T-Mobile only.

    2. The Metro $50 promotion is only available to users with an LTE capable MetroPCS branded phone. Bring your own phones are not eligible for this offer. This is a limited time promotion but customers who activate it by April 5 will get to keep the $50/month pricing indefinitely.

  4. Wish Ultra Mobile can match or exceed on the $20 plan for data.

    1. I don't think they will. They offer unlimited Intl calls to 10 countries for the $20 if you have a need for it, however that service is down a lot.

  5. I have a GIVmobile sim.. thinking of activating it for $20 plan... Hope they add 250MB soon..

    1. GIV will get new plans next week. The $20 plan will have 250 MB as well.

      $35 plan will drop to $30 and have 1 GB of LTE

  6. Lyca's $23 100MB and GoSmart's $25 no data plans aren't all that appealing compared to PTel's new $20 plan.

    1. yeah really tempted to move down in cost to the cheap $20 ptel plan. $20 for unlimited voice & text with 250mb is good enough for me since usually on wifi a lot. tmo has good coverage in my area with 3G/4G nowadays.

      Delete
    2. We only have 3G in my home area. Well that's better than 2G, but will wait for Tmobile to upgrade our area to 4G before thinking of switching to Ptel. That $20 plan is so intriguing.

  7. The $20 plan is hard capped at 250mb. Ultra $19 w/ 100mb can add data $5 for 500mb. Regardless I think I'll end up getting PTel's $25 unlimited 2g service. Should be good enough for email.
