The AT&T 2G network is shutting down, so I will be moving to T-Mobile and make the jump to using a smart phone with data. There are three plans and so I am trying to assess which is best for me. I anticipate being a low data user, so I am just considering the lowest data tier on all the plans.
- Walmart Prepaid (5GB, 100 min, unlimited txt) - $30
- Simply Prepaid (3GB, unlimited min/txt) - $40
- Simple Choice (postpaid) (2 GB, unlimited min/txt) - $40 ($50 but with a $10 discount due to mobile internet plan)
It would appear the Walmart Prepaid would be the best choice as it is the lowest price with the highest data allowance. The telephone minutes are nominal, but should be sufficient and can be topped up as necessary at $0.10/minute.
What considerations would drive a person to select either the Simple Choice or Simply Prepaid plans rather than the Walmart Prepaid? I already have a Mobile Internet plan (postpaid). Additionally, how adequate is 2 GBs?
The Simple Choice plan seems to be the go-to plan when selecting the 6 GB plan due to the various special enhancements (video streaming, data stash, international roaming), but at the lowest data tier it doesn't seem viable.
Thanks for your comments.
