At NerdWallet, we strive to help you make financial decisions with confidence. To do this, many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. However, this doesn’t influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

Metro by T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS) offers prepaid, no-contract plans, including two prepaid options. T-Mobile is hoping to merge with Sprint, but the deal still has several hurdles to clear. Until then, it’s business as usual for Metro prepaid customers.
