T-Mobile is very proud of the fact that when you utilize their service there is never a monthly bill. Users simply pay for minute cards in various increments and then refill them when their time runs out. The cards offer plans that use both texting, calling and mobile web. For those that only have a need for limited or sporadic cellphone usage, or even just those that don’t want to get locked into a contract, T-Mobile is an ideal pre-paid wireless carrier.
T-Mobile’s plans all include unlimited talk, but the network speed does vary based on price. If you want to take advantage of their 100MB 4G speeds you will pay more of a premium than if you stick with a lower level data plan. You also get more of a break with T-Mobile if you opt to pay for larger amounts of minutes upfront.
T-Mobile prepaid phone prices range from free (very basic) to close to a hundred dollars (if you opt for a flashier phone like the Samsung Gravity). All phones offer options for international calling and texting, and they never have roaming charges. With the right choices for plans and features, T-Mobile is a pay as you go plan that makes sense for a user that wants to pay only as they determine need.
