Target to Sell Univision Mobile and GoSmart Mobile

The Latin Post is reporting that Univision Mobile and GoSmart Mobile phones and airtime will soon be sold at 1700 Target Stores nationwide. That's most of them as Target has 1801 stores in the U.S.

Univision Mobile is a joint venture between T-Mobile and Spanish language TV network Univision Communications which launched a year ago. It targets Hispanic Americans with features like unlimited international text messaging and international call and roaming credits. Some plans include unlimited access to Univision's Music-Uforia streaming music service and an extra 2.5GB of data exclusivelyfor using Univision's Uvideos streaming video service. Univision Mobile offers plans priced from $30 to $55 per month. LTE data is available on, domestic roaming is not.


GoSmart Mobile is T-Mobile's value priced prepaid brand which is noted for large amounts of data at relatively low prices GoSmart's top plan offers unlimited talk and messaging and 10 GB of data for $45 month. All of GoSmart's plans include unlimited high speed access, including LTE, to Facebook and Facebook Messenger. Eexcept for Facebook, GoSmart's high speed data is limited to HSPA+ only with LTE not available. HSPA+ speeds of as high as 20 Mbps have been reported, although speeds of 6-8 Mbps are more typical.

The Latin Post article did not say when Univision and GoSmart would be available at Target. I checked a Target Store today in the San Francisco Bay Area, which has both strong T-Mobile coverage and a large Hispanic population, and saw no sign of either brand.

  3. gosmart (and all other cheap plan companies) may be good for price but that means other things suffer such as customer service. if cheap plans are all one is after than fine but just beware if you have problems you won't get much help.

    1. Maybe, maybe not. When I had Verizon postpaid, I got customer service worse than any MVNO or prepaid company I have dealt with since.

  4. It will be better when (if?) T-Mobile expands from its current poor coverage to something a lot better at the end of the year. Until then, you will have the frustration of a large number of Target stores selling a phone service that, if its customers buy it, they won't be able to use it without driving some distance away.

    The music service with free data is a boon to anyone who loves Latin music (Latino or Anglo).

    1. What is different with their coverage than any other T-Mobile MVNO, like the now defunct Brightspot?

      Note: "brightspot and T-Mobile are partnering to bring you even better wireless plans. No need to take any action now as brightspot service will continue through the end of this year. Look for more info in the coming weeks on how you can easily transition to T-Mobile plans which offer more value, 4G LTE data and can save you money."

    2. Brightspot coverage includes voice and text roaming, Univision and GoSmart don't so Brightspot coverage is better.

  5. Brightspot did not offer roaming along with no LTE. Where did you come up with Brightspot offering roaming?

    1. See the Brightspot Coverage map https://www.brightspotmobile.com/coverage-check "Partner , no data" areas are roaming coverage.

    1. My experience is based on when I had GoSmart in later half of 2014. I think they block tethering using packet inspection. So you can have your hotspot set up if you have a capable device and connect to it, but your browser on the connected device gets a message from GoSmart that tethering is not allowed. You may still be able to use it using some apps on your phone/PC to do packet rewriting to beat their proxy server, but I haven't tried it.
