Our guide to all of the U.S. prepaid wireless plans

Sick of committing to annual contracts? Enjoy the flexibility of a prepaid wireless plan.

The days of being locked into a lengthy wireless contract are over, as there are a plethora of prepaid options that allow you to pay for your phone service on a month-to-month basis. We’ve taken the liberty of breaking down the top prepaid wireless options for you in this handy guide.

Check your coverage

One of the first things you should consider when deciding on a prepaid carrier is the coverage provided in your area. Prepaid carriers often have a smaller coverage map than postpaid carriers because of their limited roaming agreements, so it’s good to re-check your area, even if you’ve used the carrier before. Here are the coverage maps for the carriers we will be looking at:

Metro by T-Mobile
AT&T Prepaid
Boost Mobile
T-Mobile Prepaid
Mint Mobile
Republic Wireless

What the iPhone 12 should steal from the Galaxy S20

The Galaxy S20 is here and with the iPhone 12 on its way this fall, here are a few things I’d like to see from Samsung’s latest implemented on Apple’s next greatest.


Back in the stone ages of smartphones, I used to joke that Nokia didn’t have any silicon or machine learning, so they just hung big glass on the back of everything and captured it all optically. Apple didn’t have glass or servers so they used big silicon on everything, doing it all in the image signal processor. And Google, well, Google had no idea what phone you were using so it just sucked everything up into the cloud and auto awesomed everything on big servers.

We’ve come a long way since then and most phones now use a combination of better optics, better image signal processors, and better machine learning, but some companies still do some of them way better than others.

Google still just crushes the algorithms. Everything from segmentation masking to super res zoom, which works similarly to Google’s HDR+ …

iPhone is getting ’CarKeys’ but what about ’HouseKeys’?

Earlier this month, some code was found in the iOS 13.4 beta for a CarKey API, or application programming interface. CarKey seems to be a system that will allow your iPhone or Apple Watch to lock, unlock, even start your car… if your car has NFC and the manufacturer partners with Apple to make it all just work.

And… it sounds great. Terrific even. But it also still sounds so limited compared to the Apple Watch future I’ve been dreaming about for over half a decade: The everything key.


So, the CarKey gist from the first beta was that you’d take out your iPhone, put iton your car’s NFC reader, open the Wallet app, and tap to initiate a new pairing. Then, like with Apple Pay, it would have to authorize you, most likely through another app on your iPhone supplied by your car maker. So, like, a Toyota app.

That would make the pairing process pretty secure, both in terms of proximity and ownership. This means you not only have to authenticate through the app, you have to b…
