Here’s how!

The Big 4 have secret discount brands

AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have long had secret sub-brands for price-sensitive customers.

AT&T has Cricket Wireless, Sprint has Boost Mobile and T-Mobile has GoSmartMobile. Price points generally start around $25 to $35 a month for the same towers and the same service you could pay a lot more for.

Like Verizon service? Total Wireless offers it cheaper!

Tracfone has a new service with Verizon called Total Wireless. This hidden gem is basically Verizon’s sub-brand.

Total Wireless offers the same service, same towers — the same everything — you’re used to with Verizon.

But it comes at a price you’re unaccustomed to from a Big 4 wireless carrier: $35 a month for unlimited talk, unlimited text, and 5 GB of data.

All with no contract…for the same towers and the same service as the name brand!

Now with 4G!

When money expert Clark Howard first talked about this service last year it had a catch: It would only run on Verizon’s 3G network. That was a deal breaker for many people. But no more! Total Wireless is now 4G too!

“It’s the best service available for people who want to be on Verizon’s network,” Clark says.

With Total Wireless, you can typically use the same phone you currently have from Verizon as long as you’ve completed your contract with the carrier.

Check out these prepaid plans from Verizon

The other way Verizon customers can lower their bill is with the introduction of a couple new prepaid plans.

3 GB for $40

Plus unlimited talk and text in the U.S., carryover data with on-time payment, mobile hotspot and unlimited international messaging to more than 200 countries.

10 GB for $60

Same features as above, plus unlimited calling to Mexico and Canada. So you get more than triple the data of the $40 plan for only $20 more each month.
