One of the best ways to save money on your cellphone plan is to switch carriers. With so many options, chances are you can find a plan with everything you need, at an affordable price. To save even more money, keep your phone.

Cellphone unlocking is easier now than ever, making it very convenient to bring the phone you already love to a new carrier and avoiding the high cost of purchasing a new device. Here are some of our favorite cellphone plans to bring your own phone to.

Verizon Wireless (any plan)

It’s no secret that Verizon has the best and most consistent coverage. It’s also true that Verizon tends to have the most expensive prices. However, bringing your own device could help you get on the industry-leading network without having to worry about the extra cost of an expensive new phone.

Act fast, and you can get a $250 Verizon e-gift card when switching and bringing your own eligible 4G or 5G smartphone.

Visible Unlimited

If you want an unlimited plan on that same powerful Verizon network for an affordable rate, Visible could be the way to go. For just $40 per month, you get unlimited talk, text and data. You’ll also get a generous load of mobile hotspot to connect your other devices.

For a limited time, you can get your first month of service for just $25 (normally $40 per month). Plus, Visible will also throw in a $100 prepaid Mastercard just for switching. Some phones may not be compatible with Visible. Be sure to check your device’s compatibility.

Mint Mobile 8GB plan

Mint mobile has some of the most affordable cellphone plans. Their most popular plan comes with 8GB of full-speed 4G LTE data, which should be enough for the average user. This plan has an introductory rate of just $20 per month for the first three months. While that price bumps up to $35 per month after the initial rate, it’s still one of the cheapest plans for that much data.

Mint Mobile is an MVNO that piggybacks primarily off of T-Mobile’s very solid network and secondarily on AT&T’s.

Good2Go 2GB plan

Good2Go is an MVNO offering very affordable plans on AT&T’s nationwide network. We’re highlighting its 2G plan, which costs just $15 per month. This plan is excellent for anyone who finds themselves not using much of their mobile data, or anyone who can supplement their data usage with their home internet WiFi.

You should be able to bring your AT&T and T-Mobile compatible phone to Good2Go without any issues. Once you verify compatibility, Good2Go will send you a free SIM kit to get you started on their plan.
