In addition to the regular cell phone guides that we write and publish, we also take an investigative approach to certain topics and write in-depth exploratory articles. We'll look at issues that affect us in today's society, such as cell phone hackers and how much we rely on our cell phones. Our team of expert writers and researchers do more than give you the facts—we connect the dots.
U.S. Cell Phone Carriers
There are more than 100 cell phone carriers in the United States, made up of the five networks (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular) and other carriers who use these networks to provide service. Here at Let's Talk, we compare plans from more than 30 different carriers, including the biggest four—AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile. Our goal is to provide you with the best cell phone and plan choices for your situation, offering our take on which plans and deals offer the greatest value for money.
When it comes to cell phone carriers, it's not all about the "Big Four." Mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) offer great plans on the same networks that you're used to. The benefit to MVNOs is that their plans are usually more budget-friendly and prepaid (i.e., no credit check required). So, when picking a cell phone plan for you and your family, don't discount the little guys like Boost Mobile, Straight Talk, and Cricket Wireless, because chances are, their plans are cheaper.
