Review: Simple Mobile (Cellular Data Plans)

Simple Mobile is a prepaid cellular service that runs off the T-Mobile 4G LTE Network. Simple Mobile offers plans that include unlimited talk & text and data with - with tethering caps.

Simple Mobile includes unlimited international text and talk (but not data) with their plans.

While Simple Mobile does not offer a hotspot only plan, Simple Mobile will work with GSM phones.

Policies & Perks:

  • Domestic Roaming: Data use is on native towers only - no domestic roaming. Calls and texts are eligible for domestic roaming, although those who exceed 50% of their total usage in domestic roaming may have their plans discontinued.
  • Throttling: Speeds are delivered at full speed of network, then throttled to 2G once data allocation has been reached.
  • International: No international data usage is included.
  • Mobile Hotspot Use: Only the unlimited plan permits mobile hotspot/tethering capabilities - with a cap on tethered data.
  • Data Roll Over: Unused data does not roll over to the next billing period.
  • Overage Charges: There are no overage charges on prepaid plans - one your cap is reached, you will be slowed to 2G speeds.
  • Streaming: No streaming services are provided.
  • Unlimited Data: An unlimited on device data plan is offered, which also allows for 8GB of tethered data.

Testing Status: We do not keep a Simple Mobile plan in our testing arsenal.
