Ultra Mobile is an MVNO carrier that uses the T-Mobile network. At present they have several calling plans available, however as of today they will be launching yet another. This new plan will debut with the lowest price of all the Ultra Mobile plans. The plan will be $19 per month and is being touted as “entry point plan for casual mobile users.”
Aside from being aimed at the casual user, this new $19 per month plan will also have a focus on international messaging. In fact, one of the features of this plan is unlimited global SMS messaging that will work with any mobile number in 194 countries around the world. This plan also includes 250 voice minutes as well as 50MB of high-speed data and $1.25 toward international calls.
For those not as familiar with Ultra Mobile, they are a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) carrier. Basically, you would go to a carrier like Ultra Mobile if you already have a phone and are just looking for a SIM and service. Ultra Mobile originally launched back in October 2012 and as one could take from the international friendliness of this new plan — they are looking towards those who live in the US, but happen to have been born elsewhere.
Aside from this newly introduced $19 per month plan, Ultra Mobile also has plans at $29, $39, $49 and $59. Since we already have an idea of what the lower priced plans will offer, lets mention the higher priced plan features. The $59 per month plan includes unlimited national talk along with unlimited global text messaging. This plan also includes 1GB of high-speed data and a $20 monthly credit towards international calling.
