The Best Mobile Phone Plan

Updated on January 6, 2009

Easy Peasy Mobile Phone Plans

So, I just moved back into the country and wanted the best mobile phone plan. The 2-year contracts are really annoying and getting out of one is even more annoying. Therefore, I want the BEST!

The only other alternative would be 'pay-as-you-go' which in my opinion doesn't seem well worth the upfront costs. Depending on where you are geographically located I found Best Buy Mobile, the best place to learn about different mobile phone plans/options as well as different mobile phones.

*Best Buy Mobile is actually an idea that stemmed from the Carphone Warehouse which has stores in England. You go to one of these stores and see all of the different mobile phone companies all in ONE store (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, etc.). Instead of spending the time going to each store individually and asking the same questions, you simply go to this ONE store and find the best deals/prices/options there!

*Best Buy Mobile also gives you the clearance/reduction/savings on a mobile phone immediately, as opposed to going to a specific mobile phone company which has annoying rebates and mail-in junk. Therefore, the price you see is the price you get.

The downlow:

Verizon Wireless (2 year contract)

  1. 450 anytime minutes
  2. Unlimited anytime minutes on weekends and after 9 pm
  3. 40 bucks a month

AT&T (2 year contract)

  1. 450 anytime minutes
  2. Unlimited anytime minutes on weekends and after 9 pm
  3. Unlimited text messaging and web access
  4. 75 bucks a month

SPRINT (2 year contract)

  1. 450 anytime minutes
  2. Unlimited anytime minutes on weekends and after 7 pm
  3. 40 bucks a month

Now, the BEST deal for something simple is SPRINT. The 'after 7 pm' is the biggest plus in my opinion. I can't tell you how often I use my phone the moment it hits 7 pm.

To be fair - one customer services representative at Verizon told me that Verizon 'should' be switching to the 7 pm free calling, but he didn't know when.... The SPRINT plan is now and happening as we speak.

One last tidbit regarding Best Buy Mobile - FREE phones with your plan! My phones I purchased at SPRINT were free. They are also free with Verizon. When I approached SPRINT and VERIZON offices directly, they had no free phones. Rather, that crappy 25 dollars off mail-in rebate crap I can't stand.

Conclusion:

  1. Go to Best Buy Mobile.
  2. Get your free phone and start calling after 7 pm with SPRINT.
  3. 2 year contracts suck, so find a plan that sucks less.

      I am a At&T user and I definitely hate waiting till nine for free minutes! Sprint's 7pm is rather appealing! Overall, a great informative hub!
