Add Telcel America, another America Movil company. Hablas Espanol?
Yes, sadly even the Value Plans require 2 year contracts, I always thought it did not, but apparently it does.
For my case, I have been getting offers to upgrade my plan to value and get 1 month free, but like I said without much need, and having to pay a lot of FCC/Gov taxes and Sales Tax which will be easily $10-$12 extra, even $44.99/mo plan will end up costing high.
The biggest benefit of the $50 Monthly 4G is the benefit if Unl talk and Text.
Can someone update my original topic with following:
Note: T-Mobile Contracted plans include unlimited nights and weekends, unlimited mobile to mobile.

I really like the sound of that Go Smart $35 plan. I want to know if the data is just full out EDGE, because I could live with that.
If it's hspa plus 3g throttled down artificially to 2G speeds, you can force Edge in your data options and punch it up. Tmobile prepaid is known to have an artificial 2G throttle of 60k. Going to true Edge should punch it up to max as very few people actually use it anymore.
Hard to believe that the original iphone was 2G/edge only and that there were once smartphones with speeds as slow as gprs only!
This is a terrific post on the charts. Can additional Tmobile mvnos be added including Spot Mobile (finally in the game with good unlimited plans), Ptel (newly switched over from Sprint) and others.
I was under the impression that Straight Talk does not roam. ST phones activated on Verizon cannot roam, it's Verizon-only.

Who knows? Originally in 2009 Straight Talk was Verizon native only. They could have changed it since then and there are Tmobile based Straight Talk markets.
1)Simple mobile. Best $40 plan because of the 3G and Blackberry support for their other plans..
2)Telcel America. If you are Spanish speaking, this is the one.
3)Tmobile prepaid. Their new $70 unlimited everything plan including truly unlimited high speed data makes them nearly untouchable.
4)Spot Mobile. Most 4G data o any $40 plan. Unlimited $25 talk/text. Paygo with best amounts of data. Longest expiration on paygo for the least. Spot mobile's come a long ways since it was 10 cents a min only, no data/mms.
5)Ready Sim. Great idea. Only need to text to start up a disposable number to your sim. When you're done. Toss. Plans are afoot to make it so you can extend the time if the user so wants to . A lot of potential.
6)Go Smart. At $45 for unlimited talk/text/5gb of high speed 3G data, best $45 plan out there (among Tmobile mvnos). Owned directly by Tmobile so has a lot of support. They're not going anywhere.
7)Ptel. Real Paygo made them while they were on Sprint and they haven't forgotten it. The best paygo rate overall of any Tmobile mvno for talk/text and data.
8)Sola-what? Not my cup of tea.
9)Ultra. $50 plan gives less 4G then anyone else. $40 plan is 2g only. $30 talk/text is equalled or surpassed by other including Att/Sprint mvnos and beaten by Spot. 5 cent anything paygo never materialized. So what makes them different?
10)Straight Talk/Net10 Tmobile version. Being ignored because of the Att iphone but wait, just you wait till the refarm is done. Tmobile versions gives 5 gigs to Att's 2. Which one is better. Refarm reform will change everything.
11) Others, point them out, Tmobile mvnos are popping up every day. Tru.
The advantage of these two is you can buy it 'overseas' and test it overseas so you know it will work when you come to the USA. Rates are not as low as domestic MVNOs, but they work in US and Canada and elsewhere.
Last time I heard, Ultra said middle of February for paygo.
If I were to guess, the national company that I said was a rumor will indeed come out with a $50 4g Unlimited Plan. Only thing that would prevent them in my opinion is if the loyalty reward that is required to get people excited becomes too large. That would probably make being a mvno not worth the effort.
It's simple (not simple mobile). If Ultra doesn't offer something compelling and unique , it will get buried by the avalanche of sister Tmobile mvnos. They offer nothing worth noting. Not paygo, not unlimited, not 4G data, not talk/text, not international. Nothing. If other Tmvnos like Spot can come from behind, why can't they? Just wondering. Paygo's been delayed so many times I think they don't even plan to do it anymore actually.
