If you know that T-Mobile offers the best coverage in your neighborhood, Gen Mobile is the cheapest next-to-no-data plan that operates on that network. It no longer offers a no-data option, but its 1 GB plan is still an amazing deal. You can make as many calls and send as many texts as you want (and get 1 GB of data) for $9/month. This plan is $9 if you pay three months at a time and $10 for the monthly plan.
As cheap as that rate is, it is a dollar more compared to US Mobile’s ultra-cheap $8/month plan. The main reason you’d go for Gen Mobile over US Mobile is due to the coverage difference. But if you really don't want data or to pay in 3-month batches, US Mobile's plan can save you a buck or two.
Gen Mobile also gives its users a 15-day text freebie guarantee, meaning you get 15 days of free domestic and international texting for free after your plan expires. It’s a nice grace period that allows you to get texts out before you need to pay for a new month of service.
Like US Mobile, Gen Mobile isn’t compatible with the latest and greatest phones. In fact, the newest iPhone available for purchase from Gen Mobile is the iPhone XS Max, which came out about five years ago. But if you don’t plan on using any data on your phone, it’s not like you need the newest device anyways. Even an old phone can call and text perfectly.
