Exactly. I pay $15/mo. for 2 GB and unlimited talk and text with T-Mobile Connect. That is the lowest price plan on T-Mobile. It happens to be a pre-paid plan. I have had AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile pre and post-paid. I have always paid my bills on time. The most competitive option for lines that don't use heavy data will always be pre-paid. Also, if your phone is unlocked, you have access to a wealth of MVNO pre-paid carriers that ride the "big three" carrier networks.Elric wrote: ↑Thu Jun 03, 2021 6:05 pmMy experience when I first got on T-Mobile was similar. The least expensive plan that met my needs was a pre-paid plan.TJat wrote: ↑Thu Jun 03, 2021 6:02 pm I have prepaid for ATT. can’t speak to the target demographic but I pay $45 a month for 4gb 4G data and unlimited talk/text for two iPhones.
I found this somewhere 40% cheaper than an equivalent contract that was mainly pushing unlimited data and leasing a phone. Perhaps those plans are geared towards spendthrift people that fall for the marketing that the latest phone is somehow a necessity.
