Ultra Mobile Adds Unlimited Data and More Free International Calling

ultra-mobile-$29-plan
Some of you may have already heard of Ultra Mobile as the first nationwide mobile carrier to offer unlimited international communications. Some may even know of Ultra Mobile to have ranked on the number 1 spot of the Inc. 500. Well, earlier today, Ultra Mobile made some important announcements.

Unlimited Data Comes to $29 Plan

The first announcement Ultra Mobile made was that they have refreshed two of its plans. In response to addressing the increasing demand for data, the carrier has added unlimited data to its $29 Plan, which now comes with 1GB of up to 4G LTE speeds. This change also brings unlimited data as a standard to all Ultra plans starting with the $29 plan.

New Unlimited Calling Destinations


The newly refreshed $29 plan now also includes unlimited national voice, unlimited global text and unlimited calling to over 60 destinations. Meanwhile, the $39, $49, and $59 plans now have a total of 66 destinations, thanks to the addition of new destinations such as Andorra, Colombia, Russia, Luxembourg, Kazakhstan, and Martinique. 

$44 Plan Refresh

Apart from the $29 plan, Ultra Mobile has also refreshed its $44 plan to meet the needs of its customers who need to make calls to a wider range of countries. With the new change, the plan now includes a $20 Call Anywhere credit, which allows customers to make phone calls to over 200 destinations at no extra cost. The plan also includes unlimited national voice, global text and data.

Customers under the $44, $34, and $19 plan may also enjoy unlimited calling to over 30 destinations thanks to the addition of 19 new countries such as Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Guadeloupe, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

With the new changes to both the $29 and $44 plans, current subscribers are given the option to retain the plan or switch to include the new changes. This can be done through Ultra Mobile's offline channel, online accounts managements portal, calling customer care, or through live chat on their website.


Newly Revamped Website

Speaking of website, the last announcement Ultra Mobile made was in regards to its newly redesigned website. Now, ultramobile.com is targeted at being a one-stop shop for customers where they can make a purchase on a new smartphone and even learn more details about the carrier. Each smartphone listed under the website is unlocked and will come with an Ultra Mobile SIM card they can use with any of Ultra's monthly plans. Currently, the website includes the BLU Dash M, BLU Studio G Plus, HTC Desire, iPhone SE, Motorola Moto E, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and the Samsung Galaxy S4. More devices have been slated to be added on a later date.

  1. Awesome! Love this company. You can also pay $19 per month for the $29 plan if you prepay $228 for the whole year. Can get the year plan for even cheaper if you use eBay bucks too! Wonder what the throttled data speed will be?

    1. Metro is the best at $30 for the same thing, or $25 with family plan, but with the added security that it is actually owned by T-mobile. Prepaying a full year is a gamble. In today's prepaid enviroment Ultra can go belly up and suddenly close any minute, just like PTEL & GivMobile did. And, I doubt you will get a refund.

    2. MetroPCS service is better than Ultra because it includes free voice and sms roaming on AT&T and regional networks.

    3. I'd have to go for once with the MetroPCS alternative. I'm leery of committing to flybynight's for even a month, let alone a year.

    4. Ptel was a good company but their plans were overpriced and uncompetitive. On the other hand, Ultra's plans are competitively priced and offer something no over operator does at the same price point, international calling on all plans. Sure, it's a niche market but that's who Ultra has always catered to. You just can't compare it to MetroPCS.

    5. I don't think PTel was a good company at the end. when they suddenly shut down and gave people a very tiny window of a few days in which to shut their accounts down. And during much of this time they knew they were shutting down. but their web site was advertising selling new accounts.

    6. "Ptel was a good company but their plans were overpriced and uncompetitive."
      Your memory is fading. Ptel's $20/month plan gave 250MB, versus Ultra's 100mb at the same price. Ptel had no extra, dumb $1 "cost recovery fee" like Ultra charges.
      Also, Ptel had an excellent PayGo plan - several others have copied it.
      Ultra promised a PayGo plan for a year, then just changed their mind.

    7. Ultra Mobile will not go "belly up". It's owned by T-Mobile which is part of Deutche Telekom which is 32% owned by the German government. In that respect it's like DHL.

      Delete
    8. Ultra Mobile is NOT owned by T-Mobile, they are a privately held, independent T-Mobile MVNO. See Ultra Mobile: Overview | LinkedIn for more about Ultra Mobile.

      Delete
    9. Yeah, UltraMobile is a tiny independent MVNO.

      A category of business that appears more and more likely to vanish overnight, taking what of your money they can and your phone number with them.

  2. Did anybody find phones on ultramobile.com? I can't see any.

  3. Ultra's coverage map is about a year out of date, not worth using.
    You need to use the GoSmartMobile map to see the latest coverage:

  4. What is the best plan cost wise for unlimited everything without throttle?
    I may have to do that at some point.

    1. MetroPCS $60 plan is the lowest price Unlimited, un-throttled plan on T-Mobile.

      Delete
    2. Thank you. That sounds like a really good deal actually. Their coverage isn't as bad as I thought either. I checked the map.

      Delete
  5. Any T-Mobile phone will work. If you only do single lines. $228 per year is by far the best deal for the $

  6. Roaming must be a miracle on Metro? when I was on MetroPCS I could never get it to roam onto AT&T...just had dead zones :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. that's because you didn't have the right phone with the correct bands... all their phones now WILL seamlessly roam

      Delete
    2. No miracle. You must be a singularly unlucky person ;-)

  7. Ultra Mobile flybynight company LOL...one of the fastest growing companies in America...Google it

  8. Unlimited throttled data is a big deal! As an all-inclusive fan of equality...well the real problem is in believing that there are multiple demographics...or one might say different types of Americans. Sorry to assume but why not just embrace everyone's interests and everyone's needs under one umbrella. More segregation of any kind (even calling plans) just a hurtful why to run things. My 2 cents :-)

  9. This is a typical Christine Torralba article, in which she sounds a lot more like a public relations agent than a journalist -- gushing about how important and wonderful some company's latest promotion is. In fact, this time she even threw the word "important" into the headline. For crying out loud, is this supposed to be an article or a press release?!

    1. I've said this before. Several times. I don't feel the need to mention it any more. I'm sure that CT has read these comments.

  10. You know what would be helpful, a link to the UltraMobile website...

  11. Bye Felicia

    But back to Ultra. This company is not going anywhere soon. The 1gb data is great for low usage plans but I prefer and need ATT network so I'm sticking with Cricket.

    1. Cricket offers more data for lower prices once you factor in the group discounts.

      That's not even counting the port-in device/bill credits.

      Ultra's not even in the same league when it comes to phones, plans or coverage.

    2. "Cricket offers more data for lower prices once you factor in the group discounts."
      You could also consider living in a commune. Think of the money you would save on housing, auto, utilities, Internet, food and other services compared to people who pay for their own stuff! You could even share a cellphone!

  12. Agreed...being in a mostly urban setting, Ultra single-line pricing on a 12 month prepay is gr8 for me...still, that Cricket service & phone pricing is killer...and can't be beat

    1. It's just a shame that Cricket is prone to network outages.

      There's one happening right now, although I've heard it doesn't affect AT&T subscribers.

  13. What good is unlimited international calling if you can't use it? When I had Ultra, it worked maybe 1 out of 6 tries and the voice quality was bad.
