Nope, If you go prepaid just buy a Galaxy Nexus for $350 and use Straight Talk for $45/month unlimited everything.http://www.androidauthority.com/new-att-prepaid-plan-119286/

Tmobile is better than straight talk. The internet is faster, you still get customer service, and you get the entire network instead of 70% of it like straight talk.

exactly what were you looking at?

The plans are 30,50,60,70. All unlimited data, just different throttles.

If you get on a contract plan they brought back true unlimited.

I had straight talk and it offers service tru at&t obviously and t-mobile also and had better coverage with the at&t straight talk sim than the t-mobile sim.. I dumped them both and now have a different company.

Depends on the carrier. Many prepaid carriers do not support high-end smartphones, which, now, typically has MicroSIMs

It will on Tmobile. They dont care what phone u use as long as its GSM. If its not Tmobile or pentaband 3G, you wont have 3g/4g though.

yaay.. woo hoo.. for $60 on Tmobile you get unlimited talk and text with unlimited web (2 gig before throttle cap). $70 for the same but with 5 gigs of web

Or you can opt for the tech users favorite. $30 for 100 mins, unl text, and 5 gigs web before throttle.

All up to 42mb/s depending on your device. And prepaids on Tmobile can have phone insurance.

you have to buy your phone means no subsidies but that makes everything else cheaper. i have a corporate plan so apart from 6GB data i also get unlimited CUG (closed user group), means i get unlimited minutes for calling people in my company.

@ bfrenz I guess u havent gone overseas ? . They have 3G and its fast. Even mexico they dnt have LTE but there 3G is faster than most 3G networks in the US its like t-mobile running at 42mbps hspa+ in mexico so no need for LTE sure they announced LTE for this year. So yea other places like india mexico etc have 3G or 4G not only the US ..
