It will be nice some data with $9.99 plan

It will be nice if text now add 100MB LTE + unlimited 2G data with $9.99 plan.

There are lot of cheaper plan out there (like mint SIM $15) but still non of them fit best for kids. For kids data connection is good but don't need full data speed (so they don't watch video all the time) so if $9.99 plan get some data , then this will become more popular kids choice.

I am formal text now customer and I like text now and I feel this is good company and it should grow so giving some feedback.

I am really sure that in few years there will be plan which will offer unlimited data within this range so if it is going to happen why don't capture market now.

Unreal mobile is already started offering unlimited call + data at $10.

Hey Ashvin! We did used to have this exact plan, which was called the Short plan with 100MB of high speed data for $13.99. 

Unfortunately, after a year of offering it, we found that almost all users were going over the limit and it didn't end up being the best plan for us to offer from a business perspective. 

I'm sure that as we expand, we will revisit our plans once more, and try to open up more options for different users!

Thanks for your reply. Yes I know that and I used and liked it. Infact I used that for short time with discounted rate ($9.99) but as I remember that had only 100MB and no unlimited 2G after user cross the limit. I know 100MB is not enough for everyone and if user run out 100MB and then no data connection, then no one will like that plan so that is why I think we need low rate plan with 2G unlimited option.

There are lot of plan out there like mint sim $15 for 1GB but kids don't use 1GB every month. $15 per month for kids are not good. Only textnow has $9.99 plan which is very sweet spot but some data connectivity will be good. If textnow can't effort any LTE data on $9.99 , then just 2G unlimited and no LTE is not a bad option too and I feel you will get lot of customer due to that sweet spot.

That plan did have unlimited 2G data with it! 

The problem is that for all our plans, we are the ones that are paying for the 2G data. So the 100MB users were using up a significant amount on the 2G data that it was costing us too much, and that would have led to us increasing the price from $13.99- which isn't the best option for our customers. 

But as I mentioned before, I'm sure that as we expand, we can explore these options again!
