What prepaid monthly phone service do you use?

by sjsto / September 17, 2012 5:03 AM PDT

My brother and I looking to switch to a prepaid monthly phone deal.

I currently have a Droid and want to switch to the iPhone 4. He doesn't have a smartphone. Other details: I live in New York and he lives in Chicago.

Anyone have suggestions from their iPhone experiences on what month-to-month plans are good?

Virgin Mobile, T-Mobile, Cricket, Sprint... Doing my research. Would like to hear from you guys.

Tracfone, Virgin Mobile.

In a month or so I'll make a choice to move off sprint and to Virgin Mobile or Cricket.

For our use, the plans are good. However this does not mean these are good for you.

Im using a service called Solavei. Its a new MVNO operated under T-Mobile. Ive used the service so far for 2 weeks and Im happy with it so far. And I have a Galaxy nexus so it was easy for me to sign up as they accept GSM phones so you dont have to buy one of theirs. Their plans are cheap too at 49 dollars it gets you unlimited everything. if you're interested in checking them out.
