San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2014 -- BuyVia, a preference-driven shopping app and website, today released a guide for comparing no contract smartphone plans on the web, a list that can save shoppers hundreds of dollars a year. Smartphone plan experts from BuyVia used several factors to determine their ranking for the best no contract smartphone plans currently available, including monthly rates, features, data packages, smartphones available, network service coverage and reviews.
Recent changes by the big four wireless carriers (Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T) to offer no contract cell phone plans validate the trend that many wireless subscribers are terminating their subscription contracts in favor of no contract wireless plans, in order to save up to 80%. Shoppers can spend $30 and get unlimited text and web and in some cases, save up to 80%.
Here are the best no contract Smartphone plans of 2014:
1. T-Mobile – The T-Mobile $30 per month plan with unlimited web and text, and 100 minutes is the best for customers who do not talk a lot, but text and web surf often. They have a wide range of no contract smartphones available for purchase, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II and they run a GSM network, allowing people to purchase an unlocked Smartphone and use it on their network. All that has to be done is to buy their SIM starter kit.
2. Straight Talk Unlimited Plan – The Straight Talk Unlimited Plan is a good pick for the best no contract smartphone plan. With the Straight Talk Unlimited Plan, customers receive unlimited talk, text, and web for just $45 per month, but what sets the Straight Talk Unlimited Plan apart from many other providers is that it allows customers to use high-end smartphones, such as the Apple iPhone 5s, 5c, and Samsung Galaxy S3. They primarily use the Sprint + T-Mobile wireless Networks and at just $45 per month, this no contract plan is substantially cheaper than contract plans for similar phones offered by AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and Sprint.
3. Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Plan – The Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Plan is another excellent no contract phone plan that offers 300 minutes of talk, unlimited text, and data for only $35 per month. The Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk Plan also offers customers the ability to use high-end smartphones, such as the iPhone 5s, 5c, and Samsung Galaxy S III. They do lack the Samsung Galaxy S4, as Virgin operates on the Sprint Network.
“Since many no contract wireless carriers now offer top smartphones such as the iPhone 5s and Samsung Galaxy S4, customers have even less of a reason to commit to a two-year contract with an extremely high monthly rate,” explained Norman Fong, President of BuyVia. “Although the major carriers are now offering no contract wireless Smartphone plans, those plans still aren’t as low cost or full featured to the customer as the plans we listed above and often times do not allow you to use the newest phones.”
This year will see no contract smartphone plans increase in popularity, especially with the economy struggling. Customers looking to compare no contract Smartphone plans can do so using BuyVia’s detailed post.
