San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Today, MyRatePlan.com, the authority site for comparing cell phone plans and mobile phones on the web, announced its annual list of the best no contract cell phone plans. Cell phone plan industry experts from MyRatePlan used several metrics to determine their ranking for the best no contract cell phone plans currently available including monthly rates, features, data packages, smartphones available, service coverage maps, and customer reviews.
Recent moves by large wireless carriers such as T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T to offer no contract cell phone plans confirm the trend that many wireless subscribers are scrapping their subscription contracts in favor of no contract wireless plans in order to save a significant amount of money.
Here are the best no contract cell phone plans of the year:
1. Straight Talk Unlimited Plan – The Straight Talk Unlimited Plan is this year’s pick for the best no contract cell phone plan. With the Straight Talk Unlimited Plan, customers receive unlimited talk, text, and data for just $45 per month. What sets the Straight Talk Unlimited Plan apart from many other no contract plans is that it allows customers to use high-end smartphones such as the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S series of phones. At just $45 per month, this no contract plan is substantially cheaper than contract plans for similar phones offered by AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint.
2. Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Unlimited Plan – The Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Unlimited Plan is another excellent no contract phone plan that offers unlimited talk, text, and data for $55 per month. The Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Unlimited Plan also offers customers the ability to use high-end smartphones such as the iPhone 5, HTC One V, and Samsung Galaxy S III. In addition, there are cheaper versions of the Beyond Talk Plan that still offer unlimited data and texting, but a limited amount of minutes. These plans cost just $35 and $45 per month, respectively, based on the amount of minutes a customer needs per month.
3. Boost Mobile Android Monthly Unlimited Plan – The Boost Mobile Android Monthly Unlimited Plan is another great no contract wireless plan. With the Boost Mobile Monthly Unlimited Plan, customers receive unlimited talk, text, and data for $55 per month. As the name suggests, the Boost Mobile Android Monthly Unlimited Plan only works for Android smartphones, but offers top-notch phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III.
“Since many no contract wireless carriers now offer top smartphones such as the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III, and HTC One V, customers have even less of a reason to commit to a 2-year contract with a high monthly rate,” explained Logan Abbott, President of MyRatePlan.com. “Although the major contract carriers are now offering no contract wireless plans, those plans still aren’t as beneficial to the customer as the plans listed above, and often do not allow you to use the newest phones.”
This year has seen no contract cell phone plans become increasingly popular, and this trend isn’t likely to slow down anytime soon. Customers looking to compare no contract phone plans can do so using MyRatePlan’s interactive tool here: http://www.myrateplan.com/wireless_prepaid/.
