ROK Mobile Brings Back Its GSM Plans

rok-mobile-att-gsm-plans
Almost a week ago, ROK Mobile teased its Facebook followers that their GSM plans are coming soon. It seems like their followers do not have to wait too long since the Sprint and Verizon MVNO has sent out more information on these plans via email.

Earlier, we received an email from ROK Mobile giving us a quick look into the GSM plans they are currently offering via dealers only. We're also told these plans will be available under AT&T's network.

These plans include the following options:

  • $30 Unlimited Plan - Includes 3GB of 4G LTE data
  • $40 Unlimited Plan - Includes 6GB of 4G LTE data
  • $50 Unlimited Plan - Includes 8GB of 4G LTE date

Right now,  that is all the information we have on ROK Mobile's GSM Plans. But we'll be sure to update you guys once the GSM plans are finally available and what they will include.

Update 9/25: The GSM plans are now available on the ROK website.

    1. That's usually how it works.

    2. Yes, because carrier need to keep at curtain margin to make profit and the same time not price too crazy cheap will dig a hold operation cost, too high no one will be bother.

  2. Will the ATT GSM plan support MMS on iPhone?

    1. MMS seems unlikely unless ROK is an authorized iPhone reseller which, AFAIK, they are not.

    2. Not at this time. I was told once they have at least 10000 customers they will pay att to get MMS.

  3. Any idea if they have data speed cap... i.e. 8 mbs like Cricket and H2o?

    1. No idea really, but H2O is the only AT&T MVNO that has the 8 mbps cap so I'm guessing ROK probably won't.

  4. Dennis, Is it not Cricket an ATT MVNO also that has the 8mbps cap?

    1. Cricket does throttle to 8 mbps but they are an AT&T brand, not an MVNO.

  5. Mite as well just get ATT Prepaid 45 monthly plan 6gb and use calling mart to get it down to 40 dollars and some change instead of this.

    1. $40.50/mo. for AT&T Prepaid 6 GB plan with a Calling Mart 10% discount code. And with AT&T Prepaid, adding a refill doesn't reset the plan month so one can buy a refill and add it at any time without losing days of service. Not to brag, but with or without the discount IMO it's the best plan available on the AT&T network, especially if you need/want between 2-6 GB of data and/or the other AT&T Prepaid features.

      Delete
    2. You don't get the 10% discount every month though do you? They only have the discount sometimes

      Delete
    3. If you do auto refill through Callingmart you get the 10% discount every month.

  6. Apparently ROK found out that being an MVNO on BYOD-unfriendly carriers isn't exactly profitable, and I'm actually tempted to call this a good deal at $30.

    But since taxes and rollover aren't included, and (in my experience) there's a 20mbps difference between Gophone and MVNO speeds (the latter of which tops out at 3mbps), I still wouldn't chance it.

    The fact is, between T-mobile's lackluster native coverage, AT&T's abysmal native speeds, Verizon's horrendous phone prices and Sprint's terrible everything, I honestly wouldn't recommend any MVNO's at this point.

    Without expanded LTE roaming to pick up the slack, the only safe bets I'd place are on Gophone, Metro, and Tracfone (for cheap paygo and Verizon burners).

    Otherwise, there's no guarantee you'll be getting your money's worth in terms of coverage, speed and device selection.

    1. What AT&T MVNOs are you getting a maximum speed of 3 mbps on? I don't think that's typical. I routinely see 10-15 mbps on the the cheapest of the cheap, FreedomPop's free plan and TracFone AT&T BYOP.

    2. "The fact is, between T-mobile's lackluster native coverage, AT&T's abysmal native speeds, Verizon's horrendous phone prices and Sprint's terrible everything, I honestly wouldn't recommend any MVNO's at this point"

      Actually, from your description, I can't see you recommending any US carrier, period!

    3. I got 3mbps on "unthrottled" H2O in the exact spot (with the exact same phone) that I get 20mbps on Gophone.

      "Actually, from your description, I can't see you recommending any US carrier, period!"

      Because the entire US wireless industry is an uncompetitive shit show.

    4. "Because the entire US wireless industry is an uncompetitive shit show."

      This seems to be the direction it is going now.

  7. so you post censor now? I wonder if your advertisers influence you directly or indirectly or are unaware of your methods altogether and may not take kindly to your suppression of free speech and skewing of conversation direction from cherry picking posts.

    2. Comments are subject to moderation. I deleted a long off-topic conversation between two anonymous commenters that had degenerated into seemingly endless bickering. Please keep comments on-topic and respectful toward other users.

    3. "Cherry picking posts", even if it is happening, would be an expression of Dennis's freedom of the press. This is his publication , his editorial discretion.

      First Amendment 101.

      Delete
    4. The spirit of the first amendment is protecting speech, not censoring it.

      Citing a technicality from something written hundreds of years ago with newspapers (not blogs) in mind to use the amendment against its explicit purpose is one of the scummiest things you can do.

      After all, someone's right to censor should apply only to themself, and it should end where anyone else's right to express a constitutionally protected opinion begins.

      The fact that it doesn't is exactly why our society's steadily becoming such a complete shit show.

      Violence begins where debate ends, and debate ends where private control and censorship of expressed opinions begins.

      Anyway, if you're gonna have a peanut gallery then it should be no comments barred (spam and drive-by advertising notwithstanding).

      Otherwise, you can't expect anyone to take a heavily curated comments section seriously when they're not even allowed the dignity of seeing the full range of opinions, on-topic or not, about any given subject.

      Readers can make up their own minds about what comments are relevant or informative, and they don't need someone else doing it for them.

    5. "Anyway, if you're gonna have a peanut gallery then it should be no comments barred (spam and drive-by advertising notwithstanding)."

      Not your call. If Dennis wants to run it this way, fine. If not, no less fine. Him making such decisions is part of freedom of the press. Excuse me for defending the United States Constitution.

    6. "Violence begins where debate ends"

      Dennis, forgive me for saying this, and I know you might not publish it, but the guy who said this comes across as a nothing more than a hotheaded thug. Dangerous, it seems, as well as extremely hostile to our free speech rights.

      Violence only begins where there are savage and small minds. That's much more accurate.

  8. The above comment is rather ignorant, and misses the point of how the New York Times, for example, doesn't print every yahoo that sends in a letter to the editor. They control their own publication ..and this is not a technicality, but is the very heart of free speech and freedom of the press.

    Dennis' controlling his own publication is a full expression of free speech. Those who want something different can easily start their own phone blog. Again, free speech.

    Those demanding the right to control what Dennis publishes here have a dangerous ingnorance of our Bill of Rights.

  9. Rok is offering all kinds of stuff besides just talk/text/lte data. They have roadslide service too. Can they also offer Freedom of Speech protection too? lol

  10. "Violence begins where debate ends"

    Dude, if you are threatening violence over petty phone argument comments being deleted, you seriously need to get a life.

  11. Perhaps posting the moderation rules for the comments on this site would be helpful?
