Up up and away!!!

I figure I should let everyone know that I will be away for the 4th of July week.  I will do my best to post, but if I don't, there will most certainly be updates right after.

I hope you all take the time and follow my blog by signing up on the right side.  This means a lot to me and is actually proving to be a bit theraputic in allowing me to focus my mind on these posts.

I do appreciate all who have come to visit my blog and hope that the information I am providing is helpful.  I will be transitioning to prepaid in about 2 weeks and will detail that completely on here.
Hope everyone has a smashing 4th of July!!

Food for thought!

Om nom?

With Google annoucing now that the GSM galaxy Nexus is being dropped to $349, I thought everyone would like a comparison on how much you can save by going prepaid instead of postpaid.

Remember, this is a simple comparison and depends where you live and what service you choose.  This will hopefully start making more sense to folks as I post more about different carriers that offer more coverage.

It all starts somewhere....

I have created this blog (which will officially be my first attempt at blogging) to detail and share my exploration of the prepaid wireless service world.  I hope folks will take this information and use it to consider where they are and how they are spending their money.  So if you are the type of person who wants to make their money work harder for them, while maintaining good service, please read on.

A study in magenta

Today I will detail T-Mobile's offerings in the prepaid world, specifically the Monthly 4G plans.  There are pay as you go options, but I will not detail them here.

The Stats:

T-Mobile is the #4 carrier in the US at the moment, just a head of Boost Mobile.  With the failed AT&T merger attempt (thank goodness it didn't happen) T-Mobile picked up some additional spectrum and some nice cash to help them along with 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) roll-out in the next year or so.

Where you at?

So today's post will be about my first look into the individual prepaid carriers.

As I shared in my previous post, my girlfriend and her mom are current customers of Boost Mobile. Overall they seem very happy with the service and are enjoying watching their costs shrink.  Read on to see if Boost is a viable option.
