    Plan changes

    Dealers,

    Simple Mobile is changing the game again. Effective Wednesday, August 1 st, Simple Mobile is lowering the high-speed unlimited plan from $60 to $50 and improving the data speed on the existing $40 plan.

    Orders for Simple Mobile SIM Cards have already spiked in anticipation of when this change takes effect and the fear that this may create shortage of SIM Cards in the market. So, place your orders now and stay ahead of the game

    Note that I am not a dealer. I just bought a pack of 100 sims so I got all the dealer emails.

    I'll try the 40 plan again when my tmo month is up.

    Looks like if this all goes as planned, Straight Talk, at least the Tmo version will be getting some real competition. I just wonder what their hidden "unlimited" high speed cap will be...

    I hope....

    If Simple Mobile give 500-700 kbps on average speed and 2GB data cap on $40 plan, many customers will be happy with it.
    If Simple mobile give 1.5 - 2.0 Mbps on average speed and 5GB data cap on $50 plan, many customers will be happy with it.

    I think most users will be happy with anything reasonably faster then 119 kbps...

    Yes they did. Idk if the changes have anything to do with that or they were already planned before the takeover/buyout. I'd like to see a minimum of speeds equal to cdma evdo.

    Either way, they need these changes to stay competitive with NET10 ($50) and ST ($45) and slightly less so AT&T MVNOs like Red Pocket.
    Still wish they would just set a cap for throttling so theres no need to kick people off.

    Simple Mobile will be the best choice for unlocked Tmo phones while Page Plus kicks the Att mvnos butts on coverage with nearly equal byod and more data at similar pricepoints. The Att mvnos need to get their rears in gear on data if they want to remain competitive. The only thing they've got is 3G speed data on gsm iphones. If Tmo refarms nationwide on 1900mhz 3G, the Att mvnos are in trouble as Simple will get the benefits too. But I'm sure the market will again change by that time...

    Preliminary reports is that the $40 plan now cruises along at 230-240 k plus which is about twice as fast as the old speed cap of 119k. This is now closer to legit 3g I still wonder if you will do better if you force edge.
    We wanted more of course but considering that their $40 plan started off with only unlimited talk , then talk/text, then talk/text/web and now talk/text/web at somewhat higher speeds, really how much complaining is there to do?
