T-Mobile 55+ plan (you must be 55 or older) 5G 73/month UNLIITED 100Gig full speed then they lower your priority (if tower gets busy you slow down) I think 80 gig Wi-fi hotspot before they throttle it. Some things are NOT metered (Selected video and audio) and of course if you can connect to wi-fi that's not metered either. I may be mistaken on the hotspot data as since I moved out of the RV I've recently changed to a 5G (not five Gig but generation 5) plan here are my specifics

Talk & text

Unlimited

High-speed data

Unlimited 5G & 4G LTE

Mobile hotspot

3G mobile hotspot included. Optional high-speed data available.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

Switched from Verizon to T-Mobile a few months ago. 2 lines on the Senior plan with plenty of data and other goodies for $70/mo., including taxes. If you don't use much data, take a look at T-Mobile pre-paid plans starting a $15.mo.

We were with Verizon for 10 years but they got to be a pain. Switched to T-Mobile. Got the old guy special unlimited data, 2 5g phones free, on 2 or 3 year contract paid the sales tax on the phones, monthly bill $90. we were paying $156 for 25 gig shared with 1 phone and a Hotspot.

Red Pocket is a reseller of ATT and has good pricing on their plans.

There are really only 3 "carriers", AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile/Sprint.

There are hundreds "Mobile Virtual Network Operators" who offer different rates and different levels of customer service.

I use Ting. Rides primarily on Sprint. Customer service is FANTASTIC ! Not the best data rates.

Also be very aware of what carrier has the most towers in the area of interest. Not all of the carries cover all areas equally well.

In my area, T-Mobile/Sprint service is non existent, they have no towers closer to me than 30 miles away and they do not sell service to my zipcode..

Verizon has one tower within 5 miles of me, but no towers and no coverage between my town and the next city 15 miles away from me so no service while I am driving.. Basically a no go for me for Verizon.

ATT surprisingly enough has three towers within 5 miles of me, has towers between my town and the next city and gives full coverage driving around my area..

No matter how glowing of a report you get from folks on this forum, unless the carrier has plenty of towers around you you will be disappointed with terrible to no service..

And as mentioned, many of the "off brand" resellers piggy back off of the name brand service towers and they will exclusively use only the towers from the main brand they contracted with..

Trac used to use ATT and Verizon depending on where you lived, now days they are exclusively Verizon only if you are a new subscriber or you replace a old Trac phone with a new unit..

Something else worth mentioning, the level of customer service when something goes wrong with you phone may not be as stellar with the low cost resellers.. I have been down that road also..
