      Before I switched to T-Mobile’s prepaid plan, I had been using AT&T’s prepaid plan. My main reason for the change of carriers was because of AT&T’s expensive rates. Right before I switched, I believe the rate of AT&T was 25 cents per minute, and text was 5 cents to send and receive. The rate I’m getting at T-Mobile now is 10 cents per minute, 10 cents to send text, and 5 cents to receive text. As a person who doesn’t text much, I found T-Mobile’s plan and rates to be much more reasonable. For $100, I can get twice as many minutes with T-Mobile than AT&T.

      T-mobile allows you to charge several different dollar amounts at a time. The general rule is that the more you charge at a time, the longer the balance will stay in your account and


      not expire. I usually charge $100 into my account at a time, which does not expire until a year later and gets me 1000 minutes. If you charge less than that, the balance will expire in 90 days. Having a whole year before my balance expires frees me from worrying about not charging my account on time each month or every 90 days so that I don’t lose my balance. When I used a different prepaid plan way back in Canada, I ended up losing half my account balance because I forget to charge my account on time each month.

      In terms of coverage, T-Mobile is pretty decent. I live just a bit outside of the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, and I get good coverage in most places, although I have poor signal at home and some parts of my ...


      • school. I find that I generally have signal when I need it, especially in places like the highway. I have to say, however, that AT&T has relatively better reception in my area than T-Mobile, but the much lower rate of T-Mobile made the occasional bad signal worth it. I know that in certain areas T-Mobile had better coverage than AT&T, so coverage would depend on region. I’ve also taken my phone on a trip down the east coast, and got pretty good reception in places like New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

        In terms of phone selection, T-Mobile definitely has one of the better choices for prepaid plans. I know for a fact that AT&T’s phones were rather hideous and low-tech, and when I signed up with them I ended up paying the full price (without contract) for a phone

        that’s not offered as a prepaid phone and putting the prepaid plan on it. T-Mobile’s prices for their prepaid phone packages are also very reasonable (and less expensive than AT&T’s). With as little as $20, you can get started with a phone. If you don’t like any of their phones, you can always buy an unlocked phone online or elsewhere and sign up with them.

        Overall, I would highly recommend T-Mobile’s prepaid service, especially if you get good T-Mobile coverage in your area. I think it’s more suited for people who don’t need to make lengthy phone calls and only use it about once a day or so, which is what I do. I find this plan very convenient get the most out of my money by following it. Other than the occasional bad reception, it is as great service for its price.
