  1. Truly unlimited LTE data is available from MetroPCS on a much better network than Virgin Mobile for only ten more dollars per month which works out to roughly 0.33 cents per day over a 30 day period.

    1. If you don't need unlimited data, then why pay extra at all?

      Delete
  2. What are they even doing?

    I mean, aside from offering uncompetitive plans on an inferior network.

  3. Actually you can still get unlimited data on MetroPCS for $50 if you know where to look.

  4. LIMITING TEXT to only 500 on a $20 plan with no data that's really going to go over well with todays users. .NOT!

    1. The $20 offer is obviously not a plan intended for teens and tweens.

    2. Do teens and tweens even use text much anymore?

  6. Underwhelmed.

  7. $20 is won't really worst. However, Sprint who cares.

  8. Ok let's see
    Cricket: $60 for 10GB + intl text and roaming
    Boost : $60 for unlimited data + domestic roaming and hotspot
    Metro PCS : $60 for unlimited data + hotspot
    Virgin : $50+10(for add 2gb) 10gb data + hotspot

    Virgin's deal is not worst, the only thing sucks are horrible BYOD and Sprint network.

    1. Cricket throttled LTE to a maximum of 8mbps

      Delete
    2. That network is better but is so crippled that allyouheariscrickets. Back to 2011.

      Delete
    3. What does the 8mpbs throttle prevent you from doing? Still better anyway than MetroPCS, which is on a bad network that gives you 0mbps in most places.

      Delete
    4. Cricket average speed is only 3.5 Mbps based on independent testing. Much slower than MetroPCS, so Cricket wastes your life. And Metro LTE is available in more than 2/3 of the US land area in the 48 states now, more than 2 Million square miles, so it's coverage is fine for the vast majority of people. That's a big reason why Metro still has more than twice as many subscribers as Cricket, and grew faster in Q1 2016, with about 60% more subscribers added.

      Delete
    5. There's a reason Cricket needs to offer $100 credits to lure people away from their competition. And there's a reason people bail on Cricket as soon as those credits run out.

    6. MetroPCS is fine for the supposed "vast majority" if they are very careful where they go (a typical experience for a "pay a lot less, get a lot less" network), and make sure to get a "Band 12" device.

      Cricket (and anything AT&T or Verizon based) just work. Life is too short for significantly inferior networks that don't.

      Delete
    7. The Cricket network is inferior because of flaky proxy servers that often won't connect you and always cripple your speeds. AT&T has invested $Billions in their network over the past few years, and Cricket takes most of that away when you want to use all that data their subscribers brag about. And of course, they get low network priority for all services. Cricket is a great choice for people who don't care about any of that. They're 'Settlers.'

      Delete
    8. I switched to Cricket 3 months ago (after 10+ years with AT&T) and it works great for my needs. I have not noticed any difference in service. Of course it depends on your region and personal needs. If Speedtest app results are important to you then I doubt Cricket is for you lol

  11. Wondering if u add add-on data to $20 plan

  12. So what's happening to the Data Done Right plans? Frankly they were better, it just had a crappy phone selection.

  14. metro pcs 60.00 for two lines and 6gb data each phone

    1. Boost Mobile $70.00 for two lines and 10GB of data each line. That's four extra gigabytes each line.

  15. sprint just doesn't get it. when i had boost/virgin/sprint prepaid, they kept downloading stuff that i did NOT want, like boost zone, mobile id, connection optimizer. you could not delete it, disable it, or stop it from running in the background and eating up data. on gsm, especially at7t or t-mobile and their mvnos, you can change phones by moving a sim card. with unlocked phones, the only carrier app you need is visual voicemail. you can even use at&t phones on mvnos like cricket, and it will adjust the apn setting s for you. ditto for t-mobile phones. it is just so much more convenient and affordable to be on gsm instead of cdma. what goes for sprint also goes for verizon, even more so!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Boost has been the better Sprint owned Pre-Paid brand for awhile now. Bu if you don't need Sprint I think Metro is a better network brand if going through a carrier for Pre-Paid service.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Virgin needs to offer more data for lower prices if they want to attract customers.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love Cricket ❤️πŸ’•πŸ‘ Cricket caps there LTE at 8mps BUT THATS ALL YOU REALLY NEED for snappy web browsing, social media, and HD video streaming. AT&T coverage, 2nd most reliable coverage in the US. There's no comparison Metro, Sprint, T-Mobile & Boost inferior networks don't compare.

    1. True. Life is too short to put up with bad networks.

      Delete
    2. You can do better. See the PC Magazine Readers Choice Awards March 2016. Consumer Cellular, Project Fi and Republic scored much higher than Cricket.

      Delete
    3. That may be all *YOU* need but some people don't want to settle for Cricket inferior network. That's their choice. Like it's your choice to Be A Settler.

      Delete
    4. Project Fi doesn't work in most places: it's a hobbyist experiment, and not an actual national network.

      Consumer Cellular is excellent for low data usage requirements, but not for high data usage.

      Republic is fine if you find that receiving calls and texts is distracting and you want a phone on a network that prevents that... even worse than Project Fi.

      As for the Cricket "inferior network" idea, it is only inferior to Verizon and AT&T Postpaid.

      Delete
    5. Wrong again. Fi works in most places in the US because the T-Mobile and Sprint national networks work in most places. T-Mobile alone covers more than 2/3 of the land area in the 48 states, and all Fi phones support Band 12.

      Delete
    6. Consumer Cellular is also an excellent value when you use moderate amounts of mobile data and don't need Unlimited talk. $10/GB including unlimited texts when you buy 1.5-4GB/month. And families share talk and text/data plans for only $10/line extra. Consumer can be a better value than the Cricket Basic plan if you don't talk much; you could either get a lower price for 1.5GB, or more data at about the same price as Cricket Basic when you order 3GB. And of course your average data speeds will be about 4 times faster, data will be more reliable and you get free off-network roaming when you need it.

    7. You're incredibly lucky if you even get 1 mbit. Most of the time AT&T is so congested that all their MVNO traffic gets deprioritized. Also their pings are averaging around 200ms and I've seen people post ones even higher.

      Delete
    8. Just checked our Consumer Cellular speedtest results. Last month's test recorded 21.6 down, 6.1 up and 128 ping. Average of last 4 tests is 13.3 down, 5.6 up and 123 ping. I have seen two extensive, independent tests that included Cricket. Avg. down was 3.5 in one and 4.5 in the other. Cricket Data Connection reliability was significantly lower than AT&T.

  19. Can anyone read the fine print to tell if taxes are included in these prices or not? It might make a difference.

    1. Virgin charges all normal point of sale taxes like state and local sales tax. They do not pass along telecom business taxes like the USF. If you pay Virgin directly you will be charged the same taxes as if you bought an airtime card at a local Target or Best Buy.

  20. Walmart never heard of this deal!!

    While doing my own Sprint coverage research earlier today, I realized Data Done Right might be done and replaced with these plans.

    On my phone browser there was a picture link for DDR on the VM site that, when following the link, led to a cryptic message that 'changes were coming with WalMart exclusive VM Unlimited Plans' (no mention of what these plans are) and those wishing to upgrade their DDR phone would need to buy a new VM Unlimited phone and pick a VM Unlimited plan.

    Checking on my computer browser there's no mention of DDR anywhere and searching for "Data Done Right" on their site leads mostly to things like the TOS. Just giving a heads-up.

    1. It looks like DDR is being shut down. Current users are grandfathered. See Another brand refresh.. HowardForums.
