You want to enjoy wireless services that are free of restrictions and overage charges? Then you should get yourself an unlimited smartphone plan. But the question is: which one should you get?

For instance, some of them may throttle your data use when you have go beyond a certain data allotment in a month.
If you are the type of person that does not want to be tied to a postpaid commitment, then prepaid is the way to go. Your best option may be to go for a plan offered by Boost Mobile, a prepaid subsidiary of Sprint. Boost Mobile's unlimited prepaid plans typically start at $40 a month. However, not all of its data is high-speed -- for example, the $40 plan gets you 1 gigabyte at 4G LTE speeds but if you use data more than that, then you get throttled. If you see yourself using up more data, then you should try checking out Boost Mobile's higher-tier plans, which include a $50 plan that includes 5 gigabytes at high speed, and a $60 plan that comes with 10 gigabytes at high-speed.
