GoSmart offers service for as low as $35 monthly

T-Mobile launched its new pre-paid service, GoSmart Mobile on Tuesday and the launch was under the radar as most headlines screamed about the HTC One. For the new service, the nation's fourth largest carrier is teaming up with the company it is in the middle of acquiring, MetroPCS. For $35, users get unlimited talk, text and web browsing, but the browsing speed is suitable for browsing, email and social networks. Pay $45 per month and the data speed is pushed up to 3G for the first 5GB of data usage. After that, the data speed is throttled down to 2G. If you don't need data, unlimited calling and text is $30 a month.

GoSmart also has additional fees for those who need to communicate internationally. Add $5 a month for unlimited texts to 200 countries while $10 a month extra brings unlimited texts and calls to 50 countries. The service is designed for those who bring their own unlocked GSM handsets to the service. If you need a handset, GoSmart offers entry level phones from Alcatel ($49) and ZTE ($99).

? I got the unlimited web and text with 100 minutes for $30 with 4g up to the first 5gb. But I don't make many calls. Nor do I use that many gigs of data. I'm getting 5mps down and 3up on my droid DNA. Good enough for me.

Currently using a nexus 4, awesome plan and its only $30 a month. In my city at best I see around 25mbps (as fast as my house internet) so i don't complain.

Yea it is. I wanted to go the nexus4 route as well but after my old one broke I couldn't wait on the restocking and just bit the bullet and bought the DNA off of Verizon. Luckily T-Mobile is already on the 1900 band here. Awesome phone and internet is fast enough to watch movies in the middle of the day without buffering. What else could I ask for?

The SIM card plan with T-Mo is better... And you can use it with a Nexus 4.
