US Mobile

現在米金融機関等からの認証のために送られるSMSを受信できる真の米携帯番号していない。そのためにPaypalにログインできなくなるなどのトラブルに見舞われた:

それを根本的に解決するために米携帯事業者と契約することを検討した。候補としてはUS Mobile月50通までのSMSのみのプランが$1.50で少額であることと,クーポンコードでスターターキットが実質無料だからだ。

その他いろいろなことを質問するために,カスタマーサービスとチャットした履歴をこの後に保存する。要点をまとめると:

  • US MobileはVerizonとT-MobileのMVNOで,前者によるサービスを “Super LTE”,後者のそれを “GSM LTE” (なんちゅう名前)と呼んでいる。
  • スターターキットにはVerizon用SIMカードとT-Mobile用SIMカードの2枚が入っている。 “US Mobile’s Starter Kit Comes with a GSM and Super LTE SIM Card | US Mobile” 
  • Super LTEを使うかGSM LTEを使うかは契約時に決めたものが契約期間中ずっと続くのではなく,切り替えが可能(可能なタイミングは聞いてない)。
  • ウェブサイトではSuper LTEについてはLTE,GSM LTEについてもGSMとLTEしか使えないかのような印象を受けたが,少なくともGSM LTEについては3Gもサポートしている。
  • 月SMSが50通までのプランは$1.50であっても,別途「サービス費」や税が加算されるので,ワシントン州であれば合計$4.50/月ほどになる。

Hi there! What can I help you with?

Networks

Here’s some information about our networks. We call our networks Super LTE and GSM LTE.

Super LTE runs on Verizon and is the fastest network in the country.

GSM LTE runs on T-Mobile’s network and has the most compatible devices.

Would you like to learn more?

More on GSM LTE

Our GSM LTE is built on top of T-Mobile’s network, which is one of the largest in the country.

GSM also gives you the flexibility to activate on almost any device that uses a SIM card.

You can learn more about both our networks here!

Ready to get started with a free starter kit?

No

Okay. You can message me at any time if you need any help. 🙂

When I purchase your Starter Kit, what kind of SIM card will I get? I understand it is going to be “universal” regarding its size, but what about network compatibility? Will it work with BOTH Verison’s network and T-Mobile’s? Or it is compatible with only one of the two and I am supposed to specify which one at the time of purchase?

I’m sorry, I didn’t understand that. Can you rephrase what you just said?

Also, you do not support any 3G connection (UMTS/WCDMA or CDMA2000) on either of the networks?

One of our specialists will be with you soon to help.

In the meantime, feel free to check out our Help page!

Hi!

How can I help you?

Hi.

I have already asked you quesitons.

Do I need to repeat them?

*questions

This question right? When I purchase your Starter Kit, what kind of SIM card will I get? I understand it is going to be “universal” regarding its size, but what about network compatibility? Will it work with BOTH Verison’s network and T-Mobile’s? Or it is compatible with only one of the two and I am supposed to specify which one at the time of purchase?

And there’s another.

I.e., this:

Also, you do not support any 3G connection (UMTS/WCDMA or CDMA2000) on either of the networks?

Got it, wait I’m just typing its answer

These are really interesting questions

Sure, I can wait. Thanks for your answers in advance!

Aren’t they? 🙂

No problem at all, just answering

So the best thing about our starter kits is that they come with both SIMs, GSM LTE (Tmobile) and Super LTE (Verizon)

and you can choose any of them for your use by looking at coverage of these two networks in your area and what best suits you

also for both the SIMs you will need an unlocked phone 

Wow, I was not expecting that. You’re going to give two SIM cards… wow.

I understand I will need an unlocked phone, and that’s why I asked.

I needed to know what kind of network capabilities it is supposed to have.

Yes, that the best part you know you can easily use the SIM which you think works best for you

That’s truly awesome.

and specifically for super LTE (Verizon SIM) you will need a Verizon certified unlocked phone, that has HD Calling feature in it

Well, I was going to use the phone just for text messages.

So I was thinking more along the line of T-Mobile’s network.

Below are the network frequencies and bands supported by our GSM LTE network (Tmobile). GSM- Bands 2 and 4. Band 12 needed for 4G LTE. In most cases, GSM unlocked devices with a sim slot and without restrictions work, given they support these bands and your area has the specific frequency and band coverage. 2G/GPRS/Edge: Band 2 1900 MHz 3G/WCDMA: Band 2 1900 MHz 4G: Band 4 1700/2100 MHz LTE: Band 12 (700 MHz) The bands supported on Super LTE are 2, 4 and 13 and along with these, the phone needs to be HD calling/VoLTE compatible and certified by Verizon.

That brings us to my original second question.

Do you support 3G?

For texting then i think both super and GSM are perfect

if you want i can check the coverage for you in your area for both

Yes, we support 2g, 3g, 4g

Thanks, but that is not necessary for now.

Thanks all the same.

Perfect, do you have any more interesting questions

cause I loved chatting with you

If you have the info handy, would you give me the network specifications of what you call Super LTE as well?

Sure, I will send you link of an article for this

That’d be super, thanks!

While you look for the article, I have a few more questions to torment you with.

https://www.usmobile.com/blog/us-mobile-starter-kit-gsm-lte-sim-card/ Here it is^

also let me tell you the difference between super lte and GSM LTE

Thanks! I thought I looked around well enough, but apparently I was wrong.

Please do.

The Super LTE network is consistently rated the fastest and most reliable network in the country. The Super LTE Network is the black SIM card in the starter kit. The GSM LTE works best in urban areas with network ultra-fast data speeds in most cities. The GSM LTE Network is the white SIM card. As always, coverage depends on where you are. That’s why we have partnered with the two best networks in America. Wooho! 🎉

Woohooo!

So a few more questions.

Yes!

1. Since I will have two SIM cards, will it be possible to switch along the way?

Sure, would love to answer it

Let’s say start with GSM LTE and later switch to Super LTE if that seems to be a better option.

Sure, you can always switch from GSM to Super

and Super to GSM whenver you want

Wow. That’s fantastic!

Now, hopefully my last question.

Ikr, its amazing

and you can even customize plans with us

Sure, would love to answer it.

Right, and that is exactly what I want to ask you about.

As I have already told you, for now, I only need texts.

Hahaha I read your mind

What!? US Mobile hires psychics?

Yes

Geez. I had no idea. 🙂

Anyhow, I only need to send/receive a few texts a month.

I believe the cheapest plan with you will be a 50-text-a-month plan for $1.50

like if you want only text messages then you can use your dashboard to build your plan

according to your plan builder

according to your needs

When I do not specify anything for the second line, it says, “Monthly total for 2 lines Not including fees & taxes $1.00.”

Sure, you can customize the plan

I would definitely not mind a $1/mo plan, but is this true?

So our cheapest plan for text is 50 text for $1.5 per month. But we charge service and tax fee

Apart from the plan prices, there is a $2 service fee per 30-day billing cycle and taxes are applicable, they may vary state to state and plan to plan but are typically observed to be between $0.98 to $6.29, you should be able to view the exact cost in an itemized bill before you actually purchase/checkout with the plans.

And that’s a minus amount? Otherwise you won’t arrive at $1.

I’m really sorry I didn’t get it what you meant by minus account

Could you help me explain it again

The plan builder says the first line with the 50 texts a month plan costs $1.50

However, somehow the total amount for TWO lines is $1 only.

It is even less than $1.50.

Don’t get me worng. $1 a month sounds FANTASTIC. I was just curious why the amount is reduced from $1.50.

Oh, thats unusual. This might be some glitch maybe

Hahaha, that’s amazing by the way. 

Have you tried going to the checkout again and

It was.

https://www.usmobile.com/savings

I am merely calculating here, so there’s no checkout. Am I wrong?

Oh, yes. This calculates only savings for you

So let me have a concrete number. Let’s say I want to use it in Washington State (WA, not DC) and have just one 50-texts-a-month plan, how much will I be paying?

that will provide you the exact amount including service fee and tax

To know the exact price you need to make an account on our website and then you can go on to purchasing the plan 

you can also check this link out https://www.usmobile.com/plans

Let’s see…

But the page you just mentioned does not give me any tax amount and such?

Would you give me a ballpark figure for my intended use?

Yes, the tax and service fee information will be known once you reach the check out page after logging into your account

because the system will calculate it accordingly then

If you would, then I would know if it is worth my while to create an account and proceed.

But, usually, the service fee is $2 and for tax let me check how much it would cost roughly

That’d be awesome. Thanks a lot!

It would cost roughly $4.48

I checked

So about $4.50. Thanks a bunch! That’s a huge help.

You’ve been wonderful, Omema! Thanks a lot!

Yes, approximately this much.

No problem, happy to help you.

Again, thank you very much! You have a nice day!
