Aug 3, 2015

Today, every other person in US either carries an iPhone or a smartphone. It is the need of the day and there is nothing wrong in it. However, if you are not choosing the right carrier or the right plan for your mobile set, you will end up paying more than what you should. So let’s check out some of the best plans available for the iPhone users.

There was a time when Verizon, AT &T, Sprint and T-Mobile, the major iPhone carriers used to charge a fixed rate for the usage and the charges were surely quite high. Things have changed in the recent times with companies offering cost worthy plans to its users. Now, take a look at the mobile carriers for iPhone.

  • Verizon

 

Among the Big four companies, Verizon has the largest network. However, due to the cost that it carries, many prefer not using the service. It is a CDMA network and is compatible to iPhone. For iPhone users who purchase the phone with two years connection contract, the monthly rate is around $87.08. This is an addition of the monthly rental with 2 GB data usage and instalment of the phone.

  • AT&T

 

AT&T is another large mobile carrier network of US with all over presence. You can purchase an iPhone with the contract of AT&T and you will have to pay $86.67. The facility here is that you get 3GB of data instead of 2GB that is common with Verizon. In practice, this is a GSM based network.

  • T-Mobile

 

T-Mobile is known as one of the most user friendly mobile carriers in USA which offers great plans for the users. T Mobile customer service is also the best in the regions of US and thus people prefer taking their services. Currently, the company has announced plans that would allow people call without border, which means there will be no extra charge for calling Canada and Mexico from 15th July. As far as the monthly cost of T mobile usage is concerned, it comes to around $72.08. This is also quite low compared to other mobile services. You get 2GB of mobile data at that price.

  • Sprint

 

Sprint is another service provider for iPhone. The company has not been doing much good for some time now and it is trying hard to gain back its lost ground. Sprint offers unlimited text and data for $50 only which is quite low compared to the top two network carriers. The total cost comes at $77.06 for the 2 years contract. However, the company has lost millions of customers to T Mobile which is slowing climbing up the ladder.

For any company that offers iPhone with its network plans, it is important to make sure that customers are benefitted in one way or other. Either the network quality has to be best or the rates have to be cheap. Apart from that the customer service also plays a major role. T Mobile customer service is doing quite good in this respect. This may be one of the reasons of people shifting to the company while the top two still rules the smartphone industry in US.
