US Mobile is a New York-based prepaid carrier that runs on the T-Mobile and Verizon 4G LTE networks (which one will depend on which carrier your phone is coming from). The backing of these networks ensures their customers great coverage—Verizon consistently comes in first place in national network shootouts, while T-Mobile is second.
US Mobile’s plans are build-your-own style, so you can specify the exact amount of talk, text and data you think you’ll need. You can adjust your plan on the fly if it looks like you’ll hit your limits on any of these in a particular month. The carrier now offers fully unlimited data plans as well, eliminating such concerns.
US Mobile is renowned for their customer service, earning high marks for their responsiveness via phone and online chat. Phone calls are answered by “real” people within 20 seconds, on average.
As mentioned, you can bring your own compatible device to US Mobile for service, or purchase one from the carrier directly. Flagship and budget devices from LG, Apple, Samsung and HTC are sold. The carrier ships free SIM cards with phone purchases.
