T-Mobile HotSpot @Home Review
In order for the service to work, you have to have a plan, a phone, and a router. The HotSpot@Home service is available for $19.99 per month for individuals and $29.99 per month for families. The service will be on sale for a limited time at $9.99 per month for individuals and $19.99 per month for families. To start, only two phones will work with the service, the Nokia 6086 and the Samsung t409. Both of these are basic feature phones. T-Mobile subscribers who have devices such as the Wing will not be able to use the embedded Wi-Fi radios in their existing devices to access the service. Both the 6086 and t409 retail for $49.99 after rebates with two-year agreement. The T-Mobile-branded routers are also $49.99, but are free after a mail-in rebate.

Review: Samsung Galaxy J3 for Boost Mobile
The Galaxy J3 may not look like much, but it performs far better than its meager price point would suggest. It's not perfect, but this low-cost Android smartphone for Boost Mobile is a good pick if you're looking for something in the middle of the pack.
Review: LG Stylo 2 for Boost Mobile
LG's second take on its stylus-equipped smartphone is easier to use and performs better than its predecessor. The Stylo 2 is also well made, inexpensive, yet laden with Android and LG goodies.
