    I use them for T-Mobile. They work fine, customer service is very fast to respond and communicates clearly. Be aware, though, that there is a monthly charge to keep your line available $2 - this is in addition to the cost of calls, texts, and data. Very easy to add on if you are running low on any items. I think they also offered unlimited - but I preferred the metered service, so I pay for what I use.

    Unlimited talk & text on T-Mobile at $5/mo., Wi-Fi Calling (on a suitable phone) and a SIM card:

    The Liberty Wrls. website's user dashboard is a little problematic, but the phone service itself works fine.

    Otherwise, plug in your anticipated usage and select the T-Mobile box to see plans listed in order of monthly cost:

    Unlimited minutes but no data on that Liberty Wireless plan. Obviously it depends on individual needs, but I'd say Hello Mobile is a better deal at $5/month for 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data (then throttled to 64Kbps) on T-Mobile's network. I haven't used their service though.

    Thanks- T Mobile isn't enough for where I live.... at this point even Verizon which used to be fine is spotty at times. So I need Verizon....

    I've been a US Mobile customer off and on for years. I try different carriers and I'm always looking for bargains. I am very pleased with US Mobile, and I love the way you can "build your own plan". Great customer service also. Don't pay for a SIM card. If you go to the website a chat box will pop offering to send you one for free.
    My smartphone is a lot smarter than I am.

    Those are great prices, but hello mobile as a company, is awful.

    Why, in your opinion? I'm not challenging it - I've never used them and I'm genuinely curious. I've read what I could find on them, but haven't come across a proper review. I know there was some problem with people porting and the port being done prematurely but I think that's been fixed. I see a post on reddit from someone all pissed because they were "cut off" after using over 19GB on a 15GB plan, arguing with customer service how it's advertised as unlimited (fair point, but wouldn't apply to me). With a budget service like that, I don't expect being able to get good support, but as long I get what I paid for (e.g. 500MB/month for $5) and it works reliably, I'd be fine.

    Thanks much for that. Of those reports I'd say this one is the most telling, as it's a recent case (past month) from a tech-savvy user who had their data cut-off after 365MB. Definitely not a good sign.

    who died and made you a mod? A person above mentioned hello mobile, maybe you overlooked it in your zeal to curtail comments
