Total Call Mobile Prepaid Plans
Today we are going to talk about Total Call Mobile. While it operates off the Nationwide Sprint PCS network, it’s quite an anomaly compared to Sprint, as well as other providers. It has only two official monthly plans, both of which only cater to those seeking voice and text services.
The rest of its ‘plans’ are in fact usage-based systems categorized into days, i.e., 4 days, 7 days, 15 days and 30 days. Overall, it’s not a bad provider, especially for those individuals who don’t necessarily always need services. We mean that you can go a week with just voice, two weeks with voice / texts / data and then take a month off. Basically, Total Call Mobile is flexible!
- Very Flexible Plans
- Free Worldwide Texts w/Monthly Plans
- Free Calls To 250 Locations
So as mentioned earlier, Total Call Mobile only offers two plans, and both plans are limited to just talk and text. The first plan sells for $29.99 and offers 1000 minutes of domestic calls and 1000 worldwide text messages. The second plan retails for $39.99 and offers both unlimited domestic calls and unlimited worldwide texts.
Both plans also support international calls, but you must purchase an ‘Anytime Plan’ card to access this service. These cards are available in $5, $10 and $20 denominations and offer domestic minutes, worldwide texts and international calls at the following rates:
- $0.10 | Domestic Minute
- $0.05 | Worldwide Text
- $0.00 to ??? | International Calls
Note that calls to over 250 locations are automatically free, while calls to other locations differ based on the precise location. You’ll need to check directly with Total Call Mobile to get the exact rates.
Keep in mind also that these two plans come with zero data services.
Usage Based Plans
It’s with the usage-based options that Total Call Mobile gets quite interesting.
These services are available in four formats, but all formats come with unlimited domestic calls, unlimited texts and unlimited data. However, they do not come with any international calling. To access this feature, you have to invest in an “Anytime Plan” card.
- $7.99 | 4 Days
- $12.99 | 7 Days
- $24.99 | 15 Days
- $49.99 | 30 days
As you can see, it’s all about days. If you just need a week of service, you go with the $12.99 card. Likewise, if you want an entire month of service, you go with the $49.99 option. It’s a somewhat awkward system, but it has its fare share of fans.
All plans by default come with three-way calling, caller ID and call waiting.
Because the way Total Call Mobile Works — particularly in regard to its “Anytime Plan” cards — there are no fees to worry about.
Total Call Mobile offers a slew of phones on its website, including the LG Optimus S LS670, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail M820, the Samsung Transform Ultra M930 and the LG Marquee LS855. Unfortunately, we’re not certain if they accept any other types of phones. At this point in time, it doesn’t seem like it.
Help & Support
Support is limited to a phone number. Adding to the misery is the fact that the number does not offer any help for people looking to purchase a plan. You must in effect be a customer to get through the automated system and talk to someone. For that reason, we feel Total Call Mobile definitely deserves a poor score in this category.
Like we said before, Total Call Mobile is somewhat of an anomaly. It’s not the type of company most people hook up with through the Internet. Their support services are limited. The information on their website is limited. And frankly, it’s just too much of a risk. If you are possibly interested in this service, your best bet is to first see if a local dealer is available in your area.
