New PhoneArena Feature: Plans
Today, the PhoneArena Team is proud to announce that it is introducing yet another new feature to its already rich set of functionalities – Plans!

As we realize that being up-to-date with the latest information about cell phone plans, provided by the major wireless carriers in the U.S., is of utmost importance to our users, we wanted to deliver a detailed and highly-functional plan database that will cater to the needs of each and every single user.

The Plans page is very easy to access, as it is now part of our main navigation menu. Within it, you're able to find just the right plan for you, thanks to our filtering options on the left, which include the desired carrier, minimum and maximum monthly cost, plan type, included minutes and many more.

Once you find a plan that grabs your interest, you can simply see its details in its page. Last, but not least, you can choose to compare different plans and their features, just like you're used to doing with our Phone Compare.

We really hope that you'll find our new Plans functionality very useful. We devoted a lot of time and effort into making it so that it is as polished as possible. However, your feedback will always be much appreciated, whether it is just an opinion on the layout or some issue that you have found.

Feel free to provide your feedback using this form. Thank you!

PhoneArena Team

Nice one.

Just thought i'd say, as much as T-Mobile doesn't want you to know too much about them , but they do still have their cheaper Even More Plus plans, just not through their website, but you can get info on those in store or if you call them. You should include those as well though (including mentioning the caveat that though they are still monthly post paid, they have no contract and do phone discounts, so therefore great for folks who buy unlocked devices, or as there is also no termination fee, great if you want to try t-mobile before locking down to a 2 year contract plan).

Wonder if we will ever see a more British (european?) type contract system - where the plan value changes based on the phone, but there is no upfront phone cost - looking there, the sim only plan at 10/month, the same plan on a HTC desire HD at 40/month, Nokia N8 30 / month, Samsung Galaxy 30/month etc.

Indecently, is it me or do folks abroad get a much better value on plan costs, rates, and phone costs, than what any of the big 4 offer here - maybe someone like Vodafone should come and add an extra GSM provider to the US market, give a bit more competition. I'd also like to see T-Mobile adopt Vodafone's policy of releasing phones on their network basically worldwide.

This is a bit dishonest,
I've had Sprint and Verizon, and know that Sprint's Mobile to Mobile is better than Verizons (it includes AT&T & TMobile customers, while Verizon's is restricted). Maybe, instead of "Unlimited" you should have how many cells you can call: ie. Verizon: 85 Million, Sprint: 250 Million. Also night and weekends? How about mentioning time? They don't all start at the same time. Also, banking minutes (as on AT&T), that is a feature. GPS (apparently some plans still charge), Texting, Picture Texts, Video Texts, Video Conf (restricted to WiFi), VOIP, ETFs, phone upgrade plans, insurance. These all need their own lines.
