    How can you don’t mention simple mobile at all , 50 dollars a month true unlimited getting mostly between 25 and 42 mbps download and 19 mbps uploads .

  2. Energy X on April 5, 2021 at 12:53 am

    US Mobile per GB plans are hard capped. Definitely worth pointing out in the review.

  3. Wayne Horne on April 5, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Thanks Stetson for a very informative video!

  4. andrew orangeo on April 5, 2021 at 12:59 am

    once again, great video…i do have a question. what exactly do you mean international roaming? if i’m overseas, will it allow me to either make calls or use my data plan for maps and things like that? presently i have verizon pre paid for home/everyday use and google fi for limited daily use and for traveling abroad…i really don’t have a need for 2 phones but the cost is really not too bad, especially since i can pause google fi whenever…your thoughts would be greatly appreciated and once again, great video, keep it up…

  5. Ron Szczepanski on April 5, 2021 at 12:59 am

    I’m just going to say it. You get what you pay for.

  6. Tango Romeo Golf on April 5, 2021 at 1:00 am

    No mention of the 22GB GSMA on red pocket for 40 bucks? No mention that verizon prepaid through walmart gives you 25GB for 35 a month after 9 months?

  7. Clarence White on April 5, 2021 at 1:01 am

    Because my brother used to work for AT&T and he used to work in corporate 100,000,000,000% he told me Yes phone companies lie to the customers 100,000,000,000% don’t be a fool

  8. Google Smells on April 5, 2021 at 1:05 am

    I cannot believe stetson does not know mint mobile offers free Wi-Fi text, including Wi-Fi calling internationally

  9. Earl Baranowski on April 5, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Could you clarify.. On Mint $15 plan.. does this include international calling – I’m like 20 miles from Canada if so how much extra per month?

  10. MMQ on April 5, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Are all prepaid plans deprioritized ? My T-Mobile speed drops significantly as the day goes on.

  11. BigDannyK on April 5, 2021 at 1:06 am

    How can a carrier limit my video streaming quality?

  12. Nathan Vs Everything on April 5, 2021 at 1:06 am

    You can get Att biggest plan for $75 if you do doordash

  13. Michael Osorio on April 5, 2021 at 1:07 am

    Why don’t you review total wireless?

  14. TyphoonBlade, TheRelaxedFlier on April 5, 2021 at 1:09 am

    I can’t wait for Verizon and At&t’s answer to Magenta Max.

    I love competition.

  15. AZTECH708 on April 5, 2021 at 1:09 am

    Boost Mobile is missing

    Do any of these carriers work with jailbroke phone?

  21. DIRTYNEWYORKER on April 5, 2021 at 1:15 am

    I noticed boost wasn’t anywhere on there which shows how much they are trash.

    Need your help.Where can I get the Galaxy A32 cell phone for Boost mobiles $10.00 cell phone plan?I know I have to get a unlocked cell phone but it can’t be GSM it has to be CDMA?Your the man !!!!

  24. Texan Child on April 5, 2021 at 1:21 am

    I’m with Visible. Am I supposed to be able to stream up to 2160p? It’s not throttling me.

  25. Laurel Doggett on April 5, 2021 at 1:23 am

    You rocked this one. I have watched a lot of videos over the years, & this is your best one. πŸ™ŒπŸ‘πŸ˜Š

  26. C D on April 5, 2021 at 1:25 am

    Metro by T-mobile is the best cell provider. I have unlimited everything for only $40 a month. My 5G speed’s are ranging 200-400 MBPS

  27. Maggy Teresa on April 5, 2021 at 1:27 am

    Super thanks for you advices

  28. DIRTYNEWYORKER on April 5, 2021 at 1:28 am

    I dont know if may people know this but i thought I’d share this with some people. If you have a tablet or just want a data plan att will give you unlimited data for the tablet if you have att service already for just 20 bucks a month plus tax. Undeniably the best unlimited data plan out there. You may not even need to have att service or phone for them to give you this plan though as I know a couple of people who have unlimited data on their tablets with no att phone service. Try your luck at your local att store.

  29. redlywaxer on April 5, 2021 at 1:28 am

    Stetson you have outdone yourself once again. You have the best useable info and recommendations for everyone from an industry expert all the way down me…the guy who knows just enough about this stuff to be dangerous πŸ™ƒ

  30. Flat Six Rulez on April 5, 2021 at 1:28 am

    @Stetson. I must be dumb. I can’t figure out how to join your Visible party on the visible site. Do I join during the visible plan setup? Why is your primary line on mint and not mint? It’s making me second guess my choice to go visible.

  31. Leon Lange on April 5, 2021 at 1:31 am

    Here’s a overview about the german prices. We have 3 big providers (Telekom, Vodafone and O2). Every single of them has an unlimited plan but o2 is the cheapest by a lot at just 45€/m full LTE/5G speeds.
    I myself just got myself a 120gb O2 plan for 35€/m at full LTE/5G speeds. After the 120gb the speed slows down to 64kbps. In the plan you get 12 months sky ticket/netflix. I would say that’s quiet a steal

  32. Xiaoying Zheng on April 5, 2021 at 1:31 am

    I try to switch to US mobile, but it seems like US mobile has a 2 dollar fees on almost all the plans

  33. Carnyzzle on April 5, 2021 at 1:32 am

    I’m on the $60 Metro unlimited plan for the included amazon prime

  34. Kenny Ong on April 5, 2021 at 1:33 am

    Thanks so much Stetson for all the hard work you put into these πŸ™‚

  35. Cale G on April 5, 2021 at 1:34 am

    Just a thought for anyone who wants to use Visible but also have secondary data plan for cheap. Get the prepaid T-Mobile data plan. They have a 2GB plan for like $10. You can have unlimited Verizon plus 2GBs of T-Mobile data for $35 a month. If you have a newer iPhone ( XR or later) you can active a T-Mobile prepaid eSim in the app. Unfortunately they won’t let you sign up for the data only plan initially in eSim so your first month will have to be a standard plan and then you can switch it to a cheap data plan

  36. Rick Kangas on April 5, 2021 at 1:34 am

    I’m sorry to say that the T-Mobile network has been "taken over" by Sprint! I had awesome, AWESOME cell service for two years then they bought Sprint and shut down the closest tower 2.5 miles away and switched me to one that’s almost 20 miles away with a mountain in between. I complained when I could get a network connection to talk to a "T-Mobile Expert" every day for 30 days to no avail! Now they are suggesting that I use WIFI calling. The WIFI I do have on their data plan is no better than the cell service. Da, that took an "Expert" and their tech to tell me that? So they’ve suggested everything from a new SIMM card, a new 5G phone, a WiFi booster, and a cell site repeater on the WiFi. The last straw was that there is no cell service downtown so I couldn’t call for a cab after PT. People that try to call me either, sometimes get my voice mail or nothing at all. To make a call my friends now know they have to go outside into my front yard to make a call.
    Here’s the deal… I am a disabled senior that lives alone. When they switched to Sprint’s junk they took away my lifeline. I fell in my dining room at 3 AM about 6 months ago and could not get a network connection for 20 minutes nor could I use my ADT call button. It’s taken 6 months for them to tell the truth about what they’ve done and that they do not intend to fix it anytime soon.
    I am considering switching to Mint Mobile. Yes, I know they use the T-Mobile network but it’s a lot cheaper! If I cant get 24/7 cell phone service, why should I pay $60/month and have to listen to their coached lies when I call for support. I will still need the repeater on WiFi but what the hell!

  37. James Marrero on April 5, 2021 at 1:34 am

    magenta max is quite expensive since they don’t seem to honor free lines. I was quoted at 4 lines for $200 with included netflix standard

  38. Sophak Sun on April 5, 2021 at 1:34 am

    AT&T is 3rd place now, you have to start listing them as Verizon Tmobile and AT&T 😒

  39. Emmanuel Torres on April 5, 2021 at 1:34 am

    Google fi?

  40. BigDannyK on April 5, 2021 at 1:36 am

    I googled "flanker carrier" and it shows me Russian fighter jets and aircraft carriers
    Are you sure it’s an actual term..? πŸ€”
    Over here we call them sub-brands

  41. BigDannyK on April 5, 2021 at 1:37 am

    5:23 what’s "domestic roaming"? You’re telling me that T-Mobile in New York and T-Mobile in Los Angeles aren’t the same network? πŸ€”

  42. Michael Kuchta on April 5, 2021 at 1:39 am

    Talking about the best Pre-paid $30 plans out there , Stetson talks great things about Visible, unfortunately their customer services has decreased tremendously , service used to be good when they first lunched their unlimited plans, now there is no reliability on their network as their service has so many ups and downs. Don’t take my word for it , try it and you see for yourself, you will regret you ever switched to them. There is no network reliability, you will experience their downside . Read other comments , go on YouTube and search for visible videos and read what people has to say about them . Not great . Hope this helps … thanks

  43. Ray D4137 on April 5, 2021 at 1:39 am

    I have Granfathered in Plan on Verizon for 17 years should I try a new plan that’s supposed to be cheaper I hv 3 phones on this plan

  44. Jamie Elgie on April 5, 2021 at 1:40 am

    What’s your view on Xfinity?

  45. ballybunion9 on April 5, 2021 at 1:40 am

    Never mind the phone plans, where can we get one of those cool anti-gravity microphones?

  46. Isaac Ong on April 5, 2021 at 1:43 am

    Stetson, did you invent the term "flanker carrier?" I can’t find another source that calls them that.

  47. Tim datoolman on April 5, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Great video Stetson!

  48. Stacy Hackney on April 5, 2021 at 1:49 am

    You did not cover Cricketwireless and Metro by T-Mobile plans in this video.

  50. Jared on April 5, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Little off subject but I’ve been using hangouts with Google voice for quite a while now. Looks like it no longer works, any good alternatives?
