One of the best phones won’t get your very far if you don’t have the proper cell phone plan, and while there are a lot of phone deals out there to shop right now, there are also some great cell phone plan deals to consider. If you’re in the market for a new cell phone plan the usual suspects like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon have some cell phone plan deals going on. But there are several other carriers worth checking out right now as well. You’ll find all of the best cell phone plan deals below, and if you’d rather choose a carrier plan by way of first choosing a brand new phone, check out all of the iPhone deals, Google Pixel 8 deals, Samsung Galaxy S24 deals, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 deals, and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 deals going on.

Mint Mobile: Get any 3-month plan for $15 per month

For a limited time, Mint Mobile has dropped the three-month price for all of its plans to just $15 per month. That means, the Unlimited plan, normally $30 per month, or $90 for three months, is no just $15 per month or $45 for three months. The base 5GB of data per month plan is $15 per month, and the 15GB per month plan is $15 per month, or $45 for three months. That is an incredible deal. All Mint Mobile plans include unlimited talk and text, access to 5GB high-speed data, free calling to Mexico and Canada, free mobile hotspot access, and WiFi calling support. You can’t beat that!

U.S. Mobile: Pre-pay $23 per line per month

Prepaid wireless plans are a great option for light users, kids, and anyone else who won’t be consuming a lot of data on a daily basis. U.S. Mobile is one of the best prepaid service providers available today, allowing you to build your own custom plan, so you’re only paying for as many minutes, texts, and gigabytes of data as you want to. As just one example, its Unlimited Starter plan is just $23 per line, or $276 for 12 months — saving you $72 per year. You get unlimited talk, text, and data, 10GB of hotspot data, international calling and texting, and more. If you’re adding multiple lines to a plan, you can also unlock free extras like Disney+ and Netflix. U.S. Mobile even has an Unlimited Flex plan that goes for just $15 per month when you pre-pay for 12 months.

Gotta love it. Here’s what you get with Tello’s brilliant UNLIMITED phone plan, which keeps you forever connected at an affordable price. For $25/month, you’ll get unlimited talk and text, plus 35GB of high-speed data on a 4G LTE/5G nationwide network with free hotspot and WiFi calling. There are no contracts or hidden fees. Cheaper plans are available, too. Starting at $5/month, you can mix & match minutes and data as you like. For example, 5GB of data are only $14/month. Moreover, you can start fresh with a new phone or bring your own — it’s up to you.

AT&T: Unlimited Premium (4 lines) — $51 per month per line

AT&T is another contender for the best unlimited phone plan deal going right now. Its Unlimited Premium plan rings in at $51 per month, per line, with four lines and includes unlimited talk, text, and data in the U.S. as well as Mexico and Canada. You also get 60GB of high-speed mobile hotspot bandwidth per month (which reverts to 128Kbps speeds after this is used up), HD streaming, 5G access. If you don’t need all the extras, the Unlimited Starter plan gives you the same unlimited calls, texts, and data and 5G for a cheaper $36 per month, per line, for four lines.

Verizon: Welcome Unlimited with a perk of your choice — $65 per month

Finishing off the “big four” list of U.S. carriers, Verizon’s Welcome Unlimited plan runs about $65 per month for a single line or $120 per month for four lines as part of Verizon new customer deals. You get unlimited talk, text, and data, but not 5G. But the best part is that you can add perks at a $10 per month rate like the Disney Bundle — normally $15 per month on its own — or Apple One, Walmart Plus, and others.

T-Mobile: Go5G Next (3 lines) — $180 per month, was $230

T-Mobile is offering one of the best cell phone plan deals right now, with its Go5G unlimited bundles — part of T-Mobile’s 5G plans. For just $180 per month, you get unlimited talk, text, and premium data for three lines, as well as HD streaming, 50GB of mobile hotspot data at 5G speeds, and a free Netflix subscription (with one simultaneous HD streams included). You can also upgrade your device every year. As a result of T-Mobile’s merger with Sprint, Sprint customers are now T-Mobile customers.
