FreedomPop gets the award for offering the most brazen offer: FREE wireless plans! They hope you'll add one of their inexpensive add-on services, but you don't need to. FreedomPop uses the Sprint and AT&T networks and you can bring your own GSM phone.
T-Mobile still offers their $3 per month plan which gets you 30 minutes of Talk or 30 Texts. With Auto-Pay they will refill your account if you need more at the same rate of .10 each. Data passes are available if you really want it.
- US MOBILE
US Mobile plans start at $4 per month which gets you 100 Texts OR 100 Mb of Data, you need to choose which. Add $3 more (or $5 for Talk Only) and you can add 100 minutes of Talk. US Mobile offers Auto-Pay on these plans and uses the T-Mobile network.
Tello's plans start at $5 per month which gets you 100 minutes Talk AND 200 Texts. For $4 more you get 200Mb of Data. Tello uses the Sprint network.
- PAGE PLUS
Page Plus offers $10 for 120 days which gives you a $2.50 per month plan. You get a combination of 100 minutes Talk or 200 texts. You'll use the Verizon Wireless network but with some some phone model restrictions, and there's the annoying 'drop dead' refill dates.
