“Power, unlimited power!” is a line from a Star Wars film that we are all familiar with, the one where Anakin Skywalker turned to the Dark Side of the Force. Well, when it comes to mobile users, we would love to have one thing – an unlimited plan at a pocket-friendly price, and Ultra Mobile might have just achieved that with their latest $49 monthly plan, targeting folks who make international calls frequently. Touted to be the the only unlimited US voice, text and 4G data mobile phone service at that price each month, it will feature up to 1000 minutes of free direct-dial international calls and unlimited text to 194 countries. You can strike North Korea off that list, I presume.

Users will be able to use a SIM card on just about any unlocked mobile phone in order make use of Ultra Mobile’s nationwide GSM network. This would mean doing away with the need for calling cards as well as global texting add-ons which could run up to be a rather high amount at the end of the month, especially if you’re involved in a long distance relationship. Anyone else has any other recommendation for the best monthly unlimited plan in the US?
