Best No Contract Plan

by Robert
(Baltimore, MD)

I had a monthly bill with T-Mobile that was just fine, $39.95 for 1,500 min per month; with tax it was coming out to be $44 and change every month.


As I got a new job that would not let me use my phone as much, so my usage went down. I canceled with T-Mobile and got prepaid Virgin mobile. What I like about Virgin is that you can do anything on line. The plan was $20.00 for 200, $30.00 for 400, and $50.00 for 1000 minutes.

The only thing I don't like about Virgin is the money expires after only 30 days. If I get a $20.00 card and only use 100 minutes I lose 100. I am now looking for a new prepaid company.

Verizon and AT&T are out because they charge $1.00 per day for nothing, $30.00 per month down the drain with AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile is out because they over charge for their minutes in a big way; $10.00 gets 30 minutes with them. Boost @ 10 cents per minute is not bad but I have used their system and it is the worst.

I have decided to go with Page Plus. They use the Verizon system and their minutes don't expire until 120 days! A $25.00 card will get me 300 minutes.

They now have unlimited for $39.95; good deal but not for me. The $25.00 card with 300 minutes will last me two months; with Virgin I was forced to get a card every 30 days or pay more per minute. This plan fits my needs, also you can go to Wal-Mart and get any new Verizon prepaid phone and activate it on Page Plus.

Page Plus VS Air Voice
by: Anonymous

I did a comparison between Air Voice and Page plus after reading a post.
On the down side, Air Voice has a $1.00 fee every month for service, they also charge $1.10 to roam. The have no unlimited plan at any price.

Page Plus has a 25 cent monthly fee, charges 59 cents to roam and has unlimited for $39.95. My mind is made up, Page Plus has a better deal than Air Voice.

Page Plus
by: Robert

All the phones that Page Plus sells and activates are refurbished. You can go to any big box store like BestBuy and Walmart and get a new pre paid ONLY not post pay cell. They have new Samsung flips with a camera for $19.95 all the way up to the Verizon's UT8010 Prepaid Phone $99.00.
Page plus is always looking for dealers so they will activate it for Free and give you $12.00 worth of time. My wife is using them now, coming off Verizon $1.00 per day plan. She used the same phone with the same esn.

No Contract Wireless is Great Value
by: PrepaidWirelessGuy

I think your post is really a good indication of all of the options that are now out there for no contract wireless plans. So much so that choosing the right plan can really be confusing. The reality is that that's why I started to put together the comparison charts - in the hopes that it will help people zone in on the right plan for their particular needs. What's great for one person may not be for another.

With respect to Page Plus, they really seem to be offering some extremely great plans recently in response to the unlimited plans that have been launched recently. And being on the Verizon network, they really have a strong offering if they can get the value of the plan right, which it appears they have.

I'm really interested to know if anyone has tried activating a Verizon smartphone (ex. Treo) on a Page Plus plan? If so, does data work? Or does it have to be one of Verizon's prepaid handsets? Unfortunately, I haven't had the opportunity to test this yet, so if anyone has, please do share!

Page Plus sounds like the best deal out there.
