Save $200 by bringing your iPhone X to US Mobile's new Super LTE network

US Mobile, a less-known American MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator), today unveiled an interesting offer for future iPhone X owners. To celebrate the launch of what US Mobile calls "Super LTE," the company will offer $200 back to iPhone X users who bring their device to the network, no trade in required. You won't get that in cash, but in bill credit, which still means you'll be saving $200. 


According to US Mobile, Super LTE is based on "America's biggest LTE network." The company doesn't mention exactly what network that is, but it's likely Verizon. The MVNO is offering unlimited data starting at $35 per month, though this particular price won't get you unlimited talk and texts. You can also choose a custom monthly plan, with prices starting at $2.50 for 40 minutes of talk, $1.50 for 40 texts, and $2 for 100 MB. More details about these unlimited and customized plans can be found in the tables below, as well as at US Mobile - check out the second source link.


iPhone X pre-orders have been open since last week, with the handset being officially released in the US (and other markets) on Friday, November 3. As a reminder, this is Apple's most expensive phone yet, being sold for $999.99 (64 GB) and $1,149 (256 GB). Would you bring your iPhone X to US Mobile to save $200?

finally a company that gets it... I've been saying, all data should be unlimited. Charge for the speed. Just like standard ISP

The network doesn't sound half bad if it is running on Verizon.

I've used U.S. Mobile on the side as a backup phone and I've been really impressed with them. Coverage under their regular GSM LTE network is provided by T-Mobile and I'm guessing this new one is Verizon based. They give you a good amount of choice as to what you want from your network, however I do wish they would offer a family plan discount like most other prepaid providers and an autopay discount. This would be the best network for those who are individuals not needing a family plan.

Xfinity is an MVNO as it a way better deal than this... 1GB = $12 per usage UNL = $45/mo less than 100MB = FREE (Essentially using phone as an iPod) Talk and Text are free... If you aren't a Xfinity customer it only costs $10/mo on top of your data plan. If you order at least a double play through Xfinity along with mobile service they will provide you a $500 gift card as long you keep the services for more than 90 days. The downfall to opening services with any cable internet company is that they charge your services a month in advance. So your bill will almost look doubled. So watch out for this. This only happen when you sign up for TV and Internet services!

If you are using an MVNO are you prioritized on the network you are on during high network traffic? My experience is you are not and you are dropped to 2g or no service especially in metro areas around 4-6pm. That was a few years ago maybe things are different now? The way I understood it during high traffic on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint all priorities white listed IEMI #s on their network 1st then what ever is left goes to MVNO. So you could be getting 4G LTE service with US Mobile on Verizon's network while there are not that many Verizon customers on the network but once those customers start using that tower and it gets loaded up you would drop to 2g or dropped to no service.

1Mbps unlimited, 5Mbps unlimited and "UP TO" 150Mbps. Nothig "super" in this super LTE, make it up to "500Mbps" or "1Gbps" with guaranteed minimum 20Mbps, and that's more like a super LTE
