  1. Or do like me and buy a new preloaded SIM card with the $40 plan for $5 on eBay. Just use google voice number as the main number. Working for 10 months now. Total cost average $50 for 10 months.

    1. Sounds like a plan for real bottom dwellers.

  2. What is better Metropcs 60 dollar paln or Simple Mobile?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd say MetroPCS' $60 plan is better than Simple's because it includes domestic roaming and until 2016 it also includes Mexican roaming.

      Delete
  3. Why would someone get this $60 plan over Metro's?

    1. Metro isn't available in all T-Mobile markets, Simple is.
      Metro makes you contact them every time you transfer your SIM from one phone to another otherwise the phone won't connect, Simple doesm't

    2. Does metro pcs have byod? If so, it isn't obvious. And I believe Simple does.

  4. I go to Canada a few times a year - that $20 7-day plan would be great if it roamed there...

    1. Try Public Mobile,free sim, C$25 a month, unlimited Canada wide talk and text, and it uses Telus/Bell towers..

      Delete
  5. Simple Mobile don't have domestic roaming?

    1. Simple Mobile's coverage is only on T-Mobile's native network. I'd say go with MetroPCS if you're in a market served by them.

      Delete
    2. ...coverage which at this time only serves about one-third of the Lower 48 territory.

  6. I personally know too many people who have been burned by America Movil companies to trust their Simple Mobile division. Tracfone, Net10, Safelink, Pageplus, Straight Talk have all cheated me or someone I know.
    Carlos Slim Helu has his own definition of unlimited. Several years ago Straight Talk closed my account for using less than 2GB of my " unlimited" data.

    There are many honest MVNOs and no need to deal with dishonest companies like Simple Mobile et all.

    1. Agree, if it America Movil owned I won't buy, nor let friends, family.

  7. MetroPCS can use WiFi calling and simple mobile can not from my understanding.

  8. Is SimpleMobile data limited by speed like Cricket is (Not full AT&T speeds)
    Or does it run full TMobile speeds?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In most of the US (lower 48), TMOBILE speed is 2G or nothing at all. While in most of the US you get at least some Cricket LTE.

      Delete
    2. That's no longer true, I get fast LTE pretty much every where I go in the San Francisco Bay Area on PTel, a T-Mobile MVNO.

      To answer the OP's question, Simple Mobile data is at full T-Mobile speeds.

      Delete
    3. In other words, more than twice as fast as chirpy top speed.

      Delete
  9. I am very disappointed by Simple Mobile because their advertised LTE is actually HSDPA. I switched to SM from Ultra Mobile. I was getting LTE with Ultra and now I'm getting H+ with Simple. A customer representative confirmed that their LTE is HSDPA and said it's the same speed, which is obviously not true.
