    A palm phone

  2. JumpClickClick on June 20, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Is there a reason that you made mentioning taxes and fees more of an afterthought in this video? I appreciated your previous comparisons of including taxes and fees so that things are more "apples to apples".

  3. Vincent D on June 20, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Love your streams! Wjamarque what is your opinion about T-Mobile prepaid do you think it’s better than metro by T-Mobile?

  4. Snark Mark on June 20, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    I just can’t get past how limited the Hotspot support is on cricket.

  5. Raul M on June 20, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Dam 14 gigs.. i use on average 200g a month..

  6. Jingxing Jiang on June 20, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Verizon play more for 4 lines is 40 dollars each line,same as att, because that’s what I have now

  7. Paramvir Gill on June 20, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Hey Stetson, Love your videos man. I live in Canada and im still so amazed that you guys have such amazing plans. Currently in Canada we are going through a major merge going on rn and cell phone prices have never been higher.

  8. Anonymous on June 20, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    with US mobile, does the 50GB comes outta ur 100GB bucket?? so if u use 50GB hotspot then u only get 50GB on phone right?

  9. Franz on June 20, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Awesome video! My only question is does xfinity mobile really have unlimited premium data? I was pretty sure that their unlimited plan was deprioritized.

  10. Madi on June 20, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Hands down Magenta Max is the best plan out there. Faster WiFi almost never slower speed since possessing the most towers across nationwide. Netflix for free and Tuesday’s deal are unbeatable. Could u ask for more.

  11. Michael Young on June 20, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    tmobiles base essentials plans are just 45 dollars for a single line

  12. Gurman Playz on June 20, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    FYI All Mint Mobile plans are $15 for a limited time!

  13. Madi on June 20, 2022 at 11:44 pm

  14. Nicodemus Victor on June 20, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    You forgot to mention that with a signature discount the premium and extra plans with atat are the same price.

  15. Drew Ski on June 20, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    I was just on the coverage critic site and it said Kellogg ID had 8 out of 10 for coverage on Verizon. It said it was the best option, yet I was just on vacation there and Verizon (well, Visible) was terrible. it was between 0 and 9 Mbps at best. My T-Mobile 4G phone on the other hand gave me 254Mbps.

  16. Ian Gran on June 20, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    I thought Boost uses T-Mobile’s towers not AT&Ts?

  17. green9227 on June 20, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    Just got att 5g plus in my area very happy with the performance 500-600 Mbps down and 40-50 up

  18. BloodyFatex33 on June 20, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Add google fi to the review !

  19. Stoney Fred on June 20, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    Great videos. Couldnt find anything on business plans thru the big 3 from anyone. Would be great to see one from ya. Thanks again

  20. Robert B on June 20, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    No Tello? Their $29 unlimited plan definitely belongs in the "cheap unlimited plans" category IMO. 25GB for $29, no throttle on hotspot, you can email them to remove the default 480p video throttle… The new $29 price point really shifts things around because it’s more data than most would use while still being cheaper than the average. It’s the cheapest plan with 25GB of data if you don’t want to pay multiple months in advance, the next cheapest is Lively at $34.99.

  21. Jolly Green on June 20, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    What u think about the version prepaid plans, any advantages?

  22. Joseph Akbrud on June 21, 2022 at 12:00 am

    Mint Mobile recently confirmed that their unlimited plan now defaults to 3g speeds after you hit your 35GB cap.

  23. Alternate Reality on June 21, 2022 at 12:02 am

    For us that still use voice on the phones I found out that T-Mobile based service has the worst audio quality – may it be Los Magenta, Mint or Google Fi. Verizon based services like Visible or Spectrum were better, and AT&T has the best voice fidelity on my Sony phone, even when I am talking to Verizon based user! Weird, but true! Anyways, thanks for the rundown. I found myself on $25 8GB AT&T yearly prepaid plan as it hits the sweet spot with Mexico coverage, excellent voice quality and fast data (not as quick as T-Mo on 5G but because of substandard voice quality I just couldn’t commit).

  24. Zane Kyber on June 21, 2022 at 12:02 am

    Hey Stetson thanks for the videos, but there’s one thing I haven’t been able to find out about these companies anywhere, maybe you can help.

    I’m starting a business (a restaurant) where people would order food online from our website and get a order confirmation SMS sent to their phone. I know how to send automated messages for order confirmation, but are these companies (AT&T, T-Mobile ect) fine with me sending automated messages like that?

  25. Richard Castillo on June 21, 2022 at 12:03 am

    Great Video Thank You! Do you know the quality of Spectrum unlimited plan for 29.95?

  26. Doomy_Doomy on June 21, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Surprised US mobile wasn’t part of the best family plans at $25 a month or Xfinity at $29.99 a line with no extra taxes. Xfinity/Spectrum at that priority and having a store to go into if you have troubles adds value there.

  27. Side Biskit on June 21, 2022 at 12:04 am

    I will say, T-Mobile Magenta Max does get more value, of course for additional services. With Max, you get $30 home internet vs the starting out $50 from other carriers, and also half off on YouTube TV for a year, with both of those you can cut internet and cable bills over in half, yes you pay a little extra but with the Netflix being a higher tier and paid for along with these other benefits, its a pretty impressive price if you have the capability or have been with another carrier already paying $200 or so for a family plan. Another great video as always! Just some food for thought lol

  28. Manhattan on June 21, 2022 at 12:09 am

    AT&T 4 LIFEEE!

  29. StickMaan on June 21, 2022 at 12:11 am

    Visible has got to be the best plan out there, the fact that you get truly unlimited data with no 2g cap is incredible. thx stetson, i been using visible for around 3 months now, and i been loving it.

  30. hnnotyy on June 21, 2022 at 12:13 am

    What’s wrong with Google Fi?

  31. Vincent Ballistrea on June 21, 2022 at 12:14 am

    So many good plans listed in this video Stetson! It really makes me think hard about my post paid Verizon plan. Wish their was a way to test the att network without paying an arm and a leg . I know it must have been hard to list the wireless plans in their video with such fierce competition in the mini space and it’s constantly changing. So many good comments too from the community on other options

  32. Jonmichal on June 21, 2022 at 12:14 am

    What about Google Fi?

  33. Daniel Devine on June 21, 2022 at 12:17 am

    why is the US so complex? £20/m for 150GB Data – do whatever you want, no restrictions on the UK’s fastest & highest coverage network (EE) – no hotspot restrictions, no video streaming limiting or "premium" data (that’s so bloody weird, like hahaha why)

    Even Unlimited plans are normally £30-40 a month – true unlimited (even after 1TB of usage you wouldn’t get throttled, i’ve tried) and same with hotspot. if the speed i can get is 400Mbit, then i’ll get that regardless of what device it’s in or whatever device i "registered" it with (as if that matters) – so long as the device supports the speeds along with the cell site.

  34. Paul Ward on June 21, 2022 at 12:18 am

    The only “affordable” cell phone plan is straight talk.

  35. tangsta35 on June 21, 2022 at 12:18 am

    people should know that US Mobile has a $2 service fee.

  36. Zach Armstrong on June 21, 2022 at 12:19 am

    No Att Prepaid on the list the 65 dollar plan with the 50 dollar autopay discount s great deal plus they just upped my mobile hotspot from 10 gb to 13 gb at no extra charge

  37. Side Hustle capital on June 21, 2022 at 12:19 am

    You should mention those prices are the lowest possible price when you have 4 lines….

  38. Cesar Salgado Salgado on June 21, 2022 at 12:21 am

    AT&T is going full support on cricket wireless that’s why they changed plans on both carriers on both brands so AT&T removed HBO max from postpaid and cricket wireless has HBO max with ads this is why AT&T allowed cricket wireless to have HBO max with ads because they are now pushing and backing up and going full support on cricket wireless that’s why plans are changing

  39. Random Tube on June 21, 2022 at 12:21 am

    I have t mobile magenta. They have the most 5g coverage in my area. But their 5g speeds are slower.

  40. Chezco on June 21, 2022 at 12:22 am

    I love you Stetson! Big shoutout to you doing what I’ve always wanted to do

  41. Raymond Driggers on June 21, 2022 at 12:23 am

    Shouldn’t Starlink RV be considered being they support VOIP

  42. Raymond Driggers on June 21, 2022 at 12:24 am

    Thought you might include something about the genesis plan by dish I heard something about $20 a month for unlimited Beta

  43. green9227 on June 21, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Got att elite Verizon get more magenta max use a 1tb of data using speed test combined between 3 plans when I connected to mmwave I using like 6gb of a data per test

  44. Paula J. Newman on June 21, 2022 at 12:25 am

    I noticed that you didn’t even mention straight talk… does that mean straight talk is really bad?

  45. Flint Ironstag on June 21, 2022 at 12:25 am

    I tried my Visible hotspot last night and the Speedtest said I was getting a little over 10mbps. I was surprised since it was supposed to cap at 5. I’m happy that they are delivering more than promised.

  46. Earl B on June 21, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Excellent video! I’ve watched a lot of your phone plan videos.. I’ve never heard you mention Tracfone and PagePlus?

  47. Splash Boi on June 21, 2022 at 12:26 am

    For multiple lines and if you have att fiber the unlimited plan drops to $26.25 per month. With taxes and fees for 4 lines my dad pays $130 total. They also have the 16gb prepaid plan for $300 but personally I’m riding on the mint 10gb plan which has been working well

  48. InsaneFire10YT on June 21, 2022 at 12:26 am

    Hey Stetson have you seen AT&T Prepaids promo where the 8GB annual plan now comes with 16GB? It looks like an insane deal

  49. Brand Gadgets World on June 21, 2022 at 12:27 am
