UNREAL Mobile is a Sprint and AT&T based MVNO which began service in June 2018 and offers smartphone-based plans with tetherable data, and permits use of their SIMs in hotspot devices also.
UNREAL tends to advertise 'unlimited data', but that advertisement means unlimited 2G speed data - you still need to select a capped amount of LTE speed data and add that cost to the base $10 'unlimited 2G data' price.
Currently, UNREAL offers a refurbished Franklin 850 hotspot for use on the Sprint network.
Unreal Mobile sells new phones but also allows you to bring your own Sprint or AT&T compatible phone or hotspot for use with their SIMs.
Unreal Mobile tends to offer 'long term' plans, where you pay for multiple months of service upfront.
Unreal Mobile service includes several bonus features:
- Ad blocking on Android phones
- Free VPN service (PC, MAC, and Android only)
- A companion app that allows VOIP voice calls on other devices (like tablets)
UNREAL Mobile products are available directly through their website, at BestBuy, at Target, and soon will be available on Amazon.
