Which Phone Carrier is Best for Your New or Refurbished Phone?

Sep 25th 2018

One of the most difficult decisions behind purchasing new or refurbished phones can be choosing the right phone carrier and plan for your needs. The four largest carriers are: Verizon®, AT&T®, T-Mobile®, and Sprint®. Here is a bit more information about what you can expect with refurbished Verizon phones, refurbished AT&T phones, refurbished T-Mobile phones, and refurbished Sprint phones.

New and Refurbished Verizon Phones

Verizon is one of the most popular phone carriers for new or refurbished phones and offers a wide array of products. Some refurbished Verizon phones you can find through MyWiT include various Samsung® Galaxy® phones and iPhones®.

 You can find small, medium, large, and unlimited data plans for your new or refurbished Verizon phones. Depending on how much data you use (whether your vice is streaming Netflix® or taking pictures of absolutely everything), you can easily find a plan to suit your new and refurbished Verizon phone’s needs.

Small Plan

The small plan for Verizon phones offers 2 GB of data for $35 per month. It’s perfect for those with new or refurbished phones who don’t do a lot of streaming or data use.

Medium Plan

The medium plan for Verizon phones is 4 GB of data at $50 per month. If you find yourself using more data than allotted through the small plans on new and refurbished phones, this is a great next step.

Large Plan

The large plan for Verizon phones has 8 GB of data for $70 per month. If you find yourself using a lot of different apps or streaming services on your new and refurbished phone, you may want to consider the large plan.

Unlimited Plan

The unlimited plan for new or refurbished Verizon phones offers unlimited data, calls, and texts for $75 to $85 per month. If you want to stream and use apps to your heart’s content on your phone without worrying about going over, then unlimited is likely for you.

New and Refurbished AT&T Phones

AT&T is another frontrunner for new and refurbished phones, and you can find many refurbished iPhones and refurbished Samsung Galaxy phones that are compatible with AT&T from MyWiT. Refurbished AT&T phones can utilize one of AT&T’s mobile share flex plans or either of its unlimited data plans for their new or refurbished phones. Whether you find yourself using less and less data on your phone or are constantly going over your allotted amount, you’ll be able to find a great plan for new or refurbished AT&T phones.

Mobile Share Flex Plan

There are quite a few mobile share flex plans available for new or refurbished AT&T phones, including 1 GB at $35 per month, 5 GB at $60 per month, 10 GB at $85 per month, and 20 GB at $110 per month. Your choice ultimately depends on how many lines you’d like to add to your AT&T phone plan or your specific data needs on your new or refurbished phone.

Unlimited Data Plans

AT&T phones are eligible for the Unlimited Choice Plan at $45 per month or Unlimited Plus at $75 per month. The difference is that the latter allows full speed data at 22 GB for both new and refurbished phones.

New and Refurbished T-Mobile Phones

New or refurbished T-Mobile phones are great because you can expect a lot of perks through T-Mobile’s service. You don’t need contracts, there are no overages, they offer a customer appreciation with deals every week (T-Mobile Tuesdays), and much more for excited users of T-Mobile phones. Through MyWiT, you can get refurbished iPhones and refurbished Samsung Galaxy phones and use them through T-Mobile. Here’s a little more info about their One Plus plan and One Plus International plan.

One Plus Plan

This is an upgrade to T-Mobile’s One plan, offering more perks and functionality for new or refurbished T-Mobile phones. With the One Plus plan, you can get unlimited HD streaming, doubled data abroad, and unlimited Wi-Fi on Gogo® flights. And it’s only $10 more than the One plan, which is $70 for one line for T-Mobile phones. Another great perk is that all T-Mobile phones get unlimited data, talk, and text.

One Plus International Plan

For an extra $25 per month, you can get all the perks of the One Plus plan with an unlimited mobile hotspot, data and unlimited international calling to landlines in over 70 countries and cell phones in over 30 countries for your T-Mobile phones. If you shop MyWiT for a deal on new or refurbished T-Mobile phones coupled with this plan, it would be a great steal!

New and Refurbished Sprint Phones

Similar to new and refurbished Verizon phones, Sprint phones are also eligible for a small, medium, and unlimited plan. Through MyWiT, you can find a variety of refurbished Samsung Galaxy phones or refurbished iPhones that work well with Sprint.

Sprint 2 GB Plan

Similar to new and refurbished Verizon phones, Sprint phones are also eligible for a small, medium, and unlimited plan. Through MyWiT, you can find a variety of refurbished Samsung Galaxy phones or refurbished iPhones that work well with Sprint.

Sprint 4 GB Prepaid Plan

Like the 2 GB plan, this plan is also $40 per month and only differs in the fact that it’s a prepaid plan.

Sprint Forward: Unlimited and Sprint Unlimited Freedom

These two unlimited data plans are both $60 per month and offer great perks. The Sprint Unlimited Freedom plan also comes with a free Hulu® subscription while the Sprint Forward: Unlimited offers low rates for adding additional lines, whether you go for new or refurbished Sprint phones.

New and Refurbished Unlocked Phones

New or refurbished unlocked phones are phones that are not tied to a specific network. They fall into the category of GSM unlocked phones and CDMA unlocked phones, which are tied to how the new or refurbished phones are connected to specific radio systems or bands. Through MyWiT, you can buy new and refurbished iPhone and Samsung Galaxy CDMA unlocked phones and GSM unlocked phones.

CDMA Unlocked Phones

New or refurbished Sprint phones and refurbished Verizon phones use CDMA. CDMA unlocked phones use network-based white lists for verifying subscribers for new and refurbished phones. Which means you’d need your carrier’s permission to switch between phones.

GSM Unlocked Phones

New or refurbished AT&T phones and refurbished T-Mobile phones instead use GSM, which means they rely on SIM cards. This makes switching between different phones a lot easier since you just need to swap your SIM card into the new or refurbished phones.

 

There certainly is a lot to think about when you’re buying new or refurbished phones, particularly when it comes to phone plans or potentially buying GSM or CDMA unlocked phones. All of these carriers are frontrunners and offer a wide array of plans. Best of all is that you can easily find a great deal on new or refurbished Verizon phones, refurbished AT&T phones, refurbished T-Mobile phones, and refurbished Sprint phones on MyWiT.com.
