    It sounds like you are saying ATT's service has more overhead, if so that's interesting.

    You could use AT&T on weekdays and Boost on weekends. They charge $1 a day for unlimited weekends. That would lower your bill by $16 a month. I do that with Nextel and Boost.

    Boost/Virgin probably have stronger compression through their proxies.

    I was wondering, if I was to get this $3 a day plan, could I just sign up for it, and not use the voice, but some how add data just to browse the internet on the iphone 3G?

    I hope you get an answer to that one, I'm due for a new Nokia and saw the Amazon deal for E62 ~$150. It would sure be nice to get a prepay data package for it.

    You can add data and messaging to the $1.00 a day plan also.

    $3 a day x 30 days or 31 = $90 a month. Well that's just the way I figure it. I was just wondering how do the rest of you use Prepaid or Go? Shawnlg has a good idea.
    Right now I have Tmobile Fair and Flexable
    1000 anytime min/unlimited weekends for $39.99
    unlimited Text for $15 no data for now





    ...... Nothing is Impossible .

    T-Mobile doesn't have any Fair and Flexable plans, you must have a Sprint phone as they used to have those plans.

    You can buy the cards at a discount + get bonus "money." It's only $2.00-2.40/day. $60-72 for unlimited isn't bad but pricey if used everyday.

    Boost $50 (less taxes): $50
    + $8 for unlimited weekends
    = ~$58

    A little bit more and you don't have to switch phones and numbers every weekend.

    Tmobile should counter with something. I would imagine $1/day for 7pm nights + free weekends.

    My GF has Cricket $45 unlimited plus $7 tax about $52. Not a bad deal, but sometimes the texts don't go through, she was late 1 day and they charged her a $15 reconnect fee (which I didn't think was right) and her phone had messed up so luckily we had a spare Cricket phone but then they charged her another $15 to connect that one.
    I also had pocket for a while but most of my calls would drop

    .....................

    So again, "unlimited" is not really "unlimited" but "reasonable" which it can be many things. So if I get into a "phone marathon" in a uninterrupted live dialog with another individual 24/7, that's ok with at&t.

    As someone famous once said: "There ought to be limits to freedom"

    The Limits of Unlimited

    I think it's funny how you can take a simple basic term like "unlimited plan" and spin it into a ton of different ways.

    Cases in point: Boost Unlimited .$50 Unlimited talk/text/web/walkie talkie .
    Metro /Cricket: Price varies. Unlimited specialists. They have every type of variety on the unlimited plan you can think of including pay by the day unlimited options. They also have limited nationwide coverage.
    Virgin Mobile :$50 for unlimited talk only.
    Page Plus: 1.99-2.49 a day for unlimited talk only. But you are automatically deducted every day making it in essence a monthly plan coming out to about $60-75.
    Net 10: Unlimited Talk/text $80 a month (waiting for price drop)
    Verizon Inpulse: Unlimited talk . 3.99 a day. But only on days used.
    Att: Unlimited talk:$3 a day only on days used.

    They've got different prices, bundles, and charge rates.
    Talk about no real apples to apple comparison here when you add even more variables which affects the value of each plan further like Boost's network/text issues , Metro/Cricket's limited coverage , lack of unlimited options for lower end users and incompatible new trimode markets. Page Plus Cellular's lack of data or text plans. Net10's lack of handset selection and sims that can't be interchanged. Verizon's unwillingness to activate smartphones and expensive flat minute rates. Att's prepaid coverage being far weaker then regular coverage and expensive flat rates.

    Makes one realize how complicated the simple term unlimited plan can get. lol.

    The ideal unlimited company's plan's would rival Cricket/ Metro in price/variety, have Virgin Mobile's handset costs, Verizon and Att 's network coverage and handset selection, ability to flash outside handsets, no system incompatibilites like Cricket/Metro has, no system issues, built in walkie talkie, and be month to month. Wait, I think I have a name for it, IYDC.
    Stands for In Your Dreams Cellular...anyone wanna know when the ipo is ?
