As fewer and fewer people actually use their smartphones to talk, creative new smartphone plans that focus on data and messaging continue to emerge. As it turns out, however, the perfect smartphone plan might already be hiding in plain sight. CNET recently stumbled upon a nearly secret T-Mobile prepaid plan that could very well be the best value in the country. For just $30 per month with no contract, users get unlimited data (5GB of full-speed 4G data and then speeds are throttled), unlimited messaging and 100 voice minutes. You read that right: Unlimited data and unlimited messaging for $30 per month with no contract.

Finding the plan and ordering it is no easy task. CNET has the full instructions posted, but it involves jumping from site to site and then ordering a new SIM card. The plan is only available for new activations so you’ll have to open a new line and port in your number if you want to take advantage of the plan. The only drawback, of course, is that T-Mobile’s network doesn’t offer coverage that is on par with the three major U.S. carriers, but it is currently spending plenty of money to work on the issue.

A screenshot showing the plan follows below, and the instructions for finding and ordering it can be found on CNET’s website, which is also linked below.
