SIMPLE Mobile adds new monthly unlimited plan for $40
No-contract wireless carrier SIMPLE Mobile just unleashed their new monthly unlimited plan that gives users unlimited talk, text and web for the affordable price of only $40.

The SIMPLE Mobile unlimited plan is a good deal, with the exception that they won’t offer you 4G speeds. You will be limited to 3G data, but there will not be any cap or throttling to deal with if you are one of those so-called heavy users. The wireless provider still offers a $60 unlimited plan that will provide you with 4G speeds courtesy of the T-Mobile network that they piggyback on.

SIMPLE Mobile has also finally added BlackBerry support. However, BlackBerry devices cannot be used with the $40 plan; rather a $50 plan that delivers everything the lesser plan does plus support for BBM, BlackBerry e-mail etc., all at 3G speeds.

Is anybody going to hop on the SIMPLE Mobile bandwagon now that they have an ever cheaper plan to compete with the other MVNOs of the world? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

I saw this deal on friday and I have to admit, i'm seriously considering the switch. On even more plus right now at T-Mo and would renew except vehemently opposed to being under contract still if AT&T deal goes through. Switching to Simple Mobile would likely save my wife and I about $20-$30/month.

MVNOs are a joke.

The carriers ultimately end up controlling the pricing.

Thinking you're going to stick it to T-Mobile by switching to Simple Mobile, in reality you are not.

Plus, they can switch your plan at anytime, rarely are you "grandfathered".

Simple mobile is a joke and a scam. I had them for one month and went back to t mobile. I was on the $60 plan and got throttled at two gigs and they threatened to cut off my data totally at 2.5 gigs. So much for unlimited data, I reported them to the BBB for being the scam that they are. The customer service sucks, I spent 3 hours on hold in the three weeks that I had their "service" only to be sent to a recording about how I was violating the terms and conditions of service. All of the while they denied that they had a data cap in place. The company is a scam and I would avoid them at all cost.

People get real Simple Mobile is the best company out there no matter what anybody said. Let me know when you find a company that will offer you Unlimited Everything for $40. Cricket is the only one that get less but don't have service anywhere. And is nobody know this SIMPLE MOBILE IS BEST FASTEST GROWING COMPANY EVER AND FOR A REASON.

I will stick with sprint until they do away with unlimited data. I also get 27% off of my bill. so i pay like 60 dollars a month after taxes.

I am an existing customer on the old $40 unlimited talk and text no data plan. Anyone knows if I can add the web plan on or how do I do this?

DON'T believe the $40 unlimited 3G hype. They tell you that but don't let you know the speed is capped at less than 2G or Edge. I have a Sensation 4G and bought the $40 plan and irrespective of what I do, I can't get above 119kbps. Called them and they told me there is nothing they could do about that and I have solid 4G coverage in my area. Rip-off

Lol Simple Mobile is a Joke, please don't get the $40 plan because it's a lie, your not getting 3g ur getting 2. I have tested this on 3 different phone that only reached speeds of 60kbps to 109kbps. I called them up to complain as to why am I not receiving 3g speed, they said it's not really 3g its "up to" 3g the plan supports. this should be against the law....
