The Best Prepaid Cell Phone Plans of 2014, Ranked by MyRatePlan.com
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Today, cell phone
industry experts from MyRatePlan.com, the leading cell phone plan
comparison site on the web, announced their annual ranking of the
best prepaid cell phone plans. To create their ranking, the analysts
from MyRatePlan took into account a number of criteria including
monthly cost, amount of minutes, data, and messages, service
coverage, customer ratings, and expert opinions.
Consumers are switching by the thousands to prepaid cell phone plans
because of the cost savings they realize by making the switch, and
because they are not required to sign a 2-year contract. With AT&T
and T-Mobile now offering their regular plans, this trend shows no
sign of slowing down. There are so many cell phone providers out
there, however, that it can be hard to know which one offers the best
plan for each consumer. MyRatePlan aims to take the guesswork out of
choosing a plan.
Here are the best prepaid cell phone plans currently available,
ranked by MyRatePlan.com:
1. Straight Talk Unlimited Plan - For the second straight year, the
Straight Talk Unlimited Plan is this year's top choice for the
category of best prepaid cell phone plan, according to MyRatePlan's
ranking. The Straight Talk Unlimited Plan offers unlimited voice
minutes, text messaging, and data for just $45 per month. Straight
Talk service can be used with almost any device, from a basic phone
all the way up to a high-end smartphone like the Apple iPhone 5s or
Samsung Galaxy S line of phones. In addition, customers can bring
their own devices as well and avoid having to pay for a phone.
2. T-Mobile Simple Choice Plan - T-Mobile recently switched their
entire business model to a no-contract prepaid cell phone plan model.
With that change, T-Mobile now offers some of the best value in a
prepaid cell phone plan out of all of the carriers on the market. In
addition, for a limited time, T-Mobile is offering to pay customers
up to $650 when they switch to T-Mobile and trade in their previous
phone. With the T-Mobile Simple Choice Plan, customers receive
unlimited voice minutes and text messaging, and can choose between
individual and family plans, and select between 500 MB of data per
month for $50, 2.5 GB of data per month for $60, or unlimited data
for $70 per month. T-Mobile also offers free unlimited international
data in over 100 countries around the world. T-Mobile supports all
the latest and greatest smartphones, and also allows customers to
bring their own devices.
3. Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Plan - Rounding out this year's list of
the best prepaid cell phone plans is the Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk
Unlimited Plan. The Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Unlimited Plan offers
unlimited talk, text, and data for $55 per month. Virgin Mobile also
offers the latest phones such as the Apple iPhone 5s and 5c, and the
Samsung Galaxy S line up phones. Customers can also choose cheaper
versions of the plan that limit the amount of voice minutes allowed,
but still allow for unlimited data and text messaging.
"I predict in 2014 we will see a bigger number of customers switch to
prepaid cell phone plans than any previous year," explained Logan
Abbott, President of MyRatePlan.
