They'll be offering unlimited everything for $10-20/month. According to syndicated radio consumer expert Clark Howard, when these new providers appear in the wireless market, all of a sudden it will "seem quaint to pay for wireless service by the minute."
The legacy wireless providers mentioned above want to lock in as many people as possible for 2 years at the current rates to squeeze as much money out of their current networks and licenses as possible.
Verizon now has monthly plans for just $5 more than the regular contract plans. If you're willing to pay retail price for a phone, you do not need to have a contract.
