The ultimate tool for comparing cell phones and service plans from every carrier

Cell Phone Plans Comparison

With all the fantastic smartphones that have launched in recent months, finding a great phone is becoming easier than ever. Finding the right wireless provider and the right service plan, however, can be a much more daunting task.

Spurred by T-Mobile and its industry-quaking “Uncarrier” initiatives, competition among wireless carriers in the United States is hotter now than it has been in years. Carriers are constantly changing their service plan prices and introducing new value-added features in an effort to one-up each other. There is also now a new breed of plans that separate the cost of a phone from the monthly price of service.

It’s impossible to keep up with everything that is going on right now in the industry.

Luckily, you don’t have to.

A brand new website called WhistleOut that just launched allows users to find the best available plans from every big U.S. wireless carrier. According to the site, nearly 80,000 different wireless plan combinations are stored in its data base for comparison.

You start by selecting the number of lines on your account and then choosing a phone model. There’s also a separate cell phone finder tool, in case you’re having trouble choosing a handset.

Next, you input how many voice minutes you use each month on average, as well as how many messages you send and receive and how much data you want. Finally, you can pick a target price range for monthly service, choose between prepaid or postpaid plans, and select your current carrier.

The result is a fantastic comparison of any and all service plans that might suit your needs from 16 different carriers.

WhistleOut is well-made and incredibly useful, and it’s linked below in our source section.
