Ultra Mobile Makes Few Changes to Plan Lineup

ultra-mobile-plan-changes
Ultra Mobile has recently announced a few new changes to its monthly prepaid plan lineup. One of the changes made by the T-Mobile MVNO is that they have added a new $24 plan, which includes features that are almost similar to the base $19 plan. The only difference between the two plans is that the new $24 plan comes with more international credit. In addition to the new $24 plan, Ultra Mobile has scrapped away the free 1000 international minutes to over 15 countries originally available on the $39 plan.

The MVNO has also made a few changes on its $49 plan. For starters, it no longer costs $49 but $54 instead. Making up for this change is the fact that the plan now comes with 2GB of 4G LTE instead of the original 1GB only. The plan now also includes Call Anywhere Credit of $20 instead of the previous $12.50. Like the $39 plan, the 1000 free international minutes to over 15 countries has also been scrapped from the plan. The free unlimited international calls to 66 countries has also been reduced to over 30 countries.  

With these changes in place, the new prepaid monthly plans offered by Ultra Mobile are now:
  • $19 Plan - comes with unlimited talk, domestic and international text, 100 MB at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited international calling to over 30 countries, picture messaging limited to available data, and $1.25 of Call Anywhere Credit.
  • New $24 Plan - comes with unlimited talk, domestic and international text, 100 MB at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited international calling to over 30 countries, picture messaging limited to available data, and $7 of Call Anywhere Credit.
  • $29 Plan - comes with unlimited talk, domestic and international text, unlimited data with first 1GB at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited international calling to 66 countries, and $2.50 of Call Anywhere Credit.
  • $34 Plan - comes with unlimited talk, domestic and international text, unlimited data with first 2GB at 4G LTE speeds, and unlimited international calling to over 30 countries.
  • $39 Plan - comes with unlimited talk, domestic and international text, unlimited data with first 2GB at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited international calling to 66 countries, and $2.50 of Call Anywhere Credit. 
  • $44 Plan - comes with unlimited talk, domestic and international text, unlimited data with first 1GB at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited international calling to over 30 countries, and $20 Call Anywhere Credit. 
  • $49 Plan $54 Plan - comes with unlimited talk, domestic and international text, unlimited data with first 2GB at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited international calling to over 30 countries, and $20 Call Anywhere Credit. 

After the allotted high speed data has been used up, the data speed is throttled to around 128 Kbps until next billing cycle. Ultra Mobile charges on taxes and fees with airtime purchases and plan renewals.

  4. I'll buy. Especially since Breed sells multi-month sims cheaper than Ultra's website. For single lines I can't even get this cheap @ MetroPCS. 3 months of the $29 plan for $60 total:

  5. Never an article on Ultra's Multi-Month plans? More over, how about an article for 1 year deals?

    1. Do you really want to pay a year in advance to any MVNO?? The chances of them (or any other MVNO) going under is very high.

    2. Their Intl calls has a high fail rate. Just last week calls to Canada didn't go thru for 5 days.CS was no help at all, just the usual non sense, turn the phone off, remove the sim, battery...barabim baraboom. so make a long story short, the free Intl calls/credit is almost a useless feature.

  6. Putting all MVNO's in the same basket...bigotry? Just research your company...Ultra is making a lot of money. Newegg link

    1. Ya....Making lots of $$$ TODAY means absolutely nothing to nobody. Just research Citibank, GM, Chrysler, Merrill Lynch, and many more giant Corp., in 2001 to 2008 they made tons and tons of money, just to go on life support, only a massive government bailout brought them back to life.

    2. people move to prepaid because they are done with the long term commitment of post paid. Why would they want to go back to that but now with a prepaid company and no phone subsidy? I would never pay for more than a month at a time with any MVNO, I don't care who they are.
      When Ptel went out of business, my month had just started and I lost my money. That was the lesson I learned about prepaying and nobody would have guessed they would go out of business after so long.

    1. this is one of those situations when people say "I knew that would happen"...I call BS. Everyone was surprised just as much that a stable MVNO would close its doors after so long.

  8. I agree. Who wants a prepay long term commitment without the benefits of postpaid? Even if Ultra is never to go out of business the idea is not appealing.

  9. to save about $15 per month ($180 per year)
    for a 1GB plan...worth it for average-use single-line accounts!
