Metro by T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS) offers prepaid, no-contract plans, including two unlimited options. T-Mobile has merged with Sprint, but for now it's business as usual for Metro prepaid customers.
Metro by T-Mobile cell phone plans
Metro by T-Mobile keeps its plans simple. The carrier gives customers a handful of options, including two unlimited data plans.
Unlimited: $50 (includes 5GB mobile hot spot data, 100GB Google One)
Unlimited: $60 (includes 15GB mobile hot spot data, 100GB Google One and Amazon Prime)
The 10GB plan includes unlimited music streaming from select services, but does not include mobile hot spot access. The two unlimited plans offer Google One storage and automatic backup on a capable Android device. Amazon Prime membership included in the $60 unlimited plan is for new Prime subscribers.
Family plan: Metro customers can have up to five lines on one account, with a $10, $20 or $30+ discount for each additional line, depending on the plan.
