The site automatically compares prices for selected service carriers such as AT&T, Straight Talk, Boost Mobile and Sprint.
ConsumerReports.org provides information tables for the most popular mobile phone companies, including T Mobile, Sprint and Verizon. These tables show how much plans cost based on the amount of lines and data per phone. This website also offers a cell phone buying guide.
About.com compares T Mobile, MetroPCS, Verizon and AT&T family plans. This comparison describes the subtle differences of each plan and what type of family they are suited for.
