Choosing a phone plan shouldn’t be stressful and neither should be buying a new phone.

How We Help You

Here at Let’s Talk our experienced team of writers take a fine-tooth comb to all of the phone plans and phone deals out there to discern what the best cell phone plans are. We compile the top results in highly-organized and easy-to-read articles that we update on a regular basis according to market changes. When you land on one of our pages you can rest assured that you’re getting timely information.

We don’t sugarcoat anything, either. You won’t find us trying to sell you a cell phone plan that we know isn’t a good deal. We pride ourselves on providing readers with honest and transparent information, so you can always trust that we’ve got your best interests in mind. For instance, we are very upfront about the fact that Verizon has the best network coverage in the U.S., followed by T-Mobile, AT&T, and then Sprint. You can take us at face value when we say that you don’t want to miss out on a certain deal. And in the same breath, when a plan or a deal may come with a specific catch, we fill you in on the details so that you aren’t blindsided come checkout or your first bill.

Not only do we publish authoritative content, but we also review cell phone plans and deals. At the top of our plan pages you will find our starred ratings for the following categories:

  • Value for your money
  • Coverage
  • Phone range

At a glance you can get a good idea as to the quality of a specific carrier’s available cell phone plans. Wondering how AT&T’s plans measure up? Verizon’s? What about an MVNO, like Total Wireless or Virgin Mobile? We’ve got the answers you’re looking for.

How to Pick the Right Cell Phone Plan

You might be wondering, who has the best cell phone plans? Well, that depends on what you’re looking for in a plan. Some people want the best network coverage they can get, so they never have to ask, “Can you hear me now?” while others want unlimited data with all the bells and whistles. Some people may know which carrier they prefer while many may be starting at ground zero with their decision. Knowing what your priorities are can be helpful when comparing various service plans, but it’s not required.

Whether you’re looking for a plan for the whole family or one for just you, we can help you get started. Using our cell phone and plan compare tool will help you to narrow down your options and ultimately land on the one that you’re happy with. Our tool allows you to filter by various preferences, such as:

  • Network
  • Carrier
  • Number of lines
  • Buying a new phone vs. bringing your own (BYO)
  • Coverage area
  • Data allowance
  • Talk and text allowance
  • Hotspot
  • Plan type (postpaid vs. prepaid)

You can even filter for military or senior plans, as well as other details, such as data speed, since not all carriers offer high-speed 4G LTE. Finding the right cell phone plan just became way easier.

Cell Phone Coverage

Not all carriers (or cell phone plans) are created equally when it comes to coverage. Verizon’s network covers 70% of the U.S., which makes them the best out of the four major carriers. T-Mobile provides 59% coverage, AT&T is neck-and-neck with them at 58%, and Sprint falls far behind at 27% 4G coverage.

However, those figures provide you with a general overview and it doesn’t mean that you can’t get strong coverage through Sprint or weak coverage through Verizon or T-Mobile. It largely depends on where you live, so you’ll want to check out the coverage maps or input your address into our comparison tool to get a better idea of which carrier is the best choice for you. The last thing you want is to choose a cell phone plan only to discover that you can’t send your group text pictures of your puppy modeling her new sweater.

Buying a Cell Phone

Let’s face it, buying a new cell phone can be overwhelming for several reasons. Whether you’re on Team iPhone or Team Android, you may not be willing to fork over huge sums of cash to buy a new phone outright and we don’t blame you—phones like the iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy S10 can be rather expensive at RRP. Plus, even certain older models can still cost a significant amount of money upfront. Some carriers sell certified pre-owned phones that can certainly negate some of the costs of purchasing a phone, but what if you don’t want to have to choose between quality and affordability?

Thankfully, carriers generally offer payment or financing plans as an affordable way to pay off your phone over time. Many carriers have a financing program that lasts 24 months, although AT&T has both 24-month and 30-month options. Some carriers, like Sprint, allow you to lease your phone through a leasing program, which means that you don’t wind up owning the phone at the end of the payment period. Every carrier is different, though.

Maybe you know that you want an iPhone but aren’t sure which one you want or perhaps you’ve got your sights set on the Google Pixel but you don’t know where it’s available. You’ve come to the right place. At Let’s Talk we meet you where you’re at, meaning, that no matter where you are in your search process, we can help you out. Once you select the new phone option on our comparison tool, you can choose between “I Know the Phone I Want” and “Help Me Choose.” If you choose the latter, then we will walk you through a series of steps to guide your search.

At the end of the day, no matter what phone or plan you wind up choosing, you can relax knowing that you made a smart, informed decision through Let’s Talk.
