We all know that Santa uses magic to deliver toys to all the good girls and boys, but the jolly man in red isn’t above using modern technology to get the job done. In order to stay in constant contact with his North Pole headquarters, Santa relies on good cellphone coverage.

These three carriers are at the very top of Santa’s nice list when it comes to unlimited plans.


It’s pretty much impossible to list out great affordable unlimited cellphone plans without including Visible. The folks at Visible keep things pretty simple, offering up just one plan. That one plan, however, gets you unlimited talk, text and data on Verizon’s industry-leading network for just $40/month.

Mint Mobile

Just a year ago, Mint wouldn’t even be eligible for Santa’s nice list. Mint only recently joined the ranks of cellphone carriers offering up unlimited plans.

The new Mint unlimited plan gets you all the talk, text and data you can use each month — 35 GB of that data is prioritized for fast speeds. All this is on T-Mobile’s nationwide network for just $90 for your first three months of service ($30/month).


Ting might sound like what Santa’s bells do, but it’s also the name of another carrier on his nice list.

Ting’s unlimited plan gets you all the talk and text you need, and of course unlimited data (22GB at full-speed) on either the T-Mobile or Verizon networks. You can get the Ting unlimited plan for just $45/month.

Honorable mention: The big guys

Yes, going unlimited with the big carriers is going to cost you some money, but if you want the best service and best perks, you’re going to have to go with either AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon.

Each of the major carriers has multiple unlimited plans at varying price points. So, you should be able to find a plan that fits your needs.
