Lucky Mobile Prepaid Plans
Lucky Mobile is a prepaid carrier that runs on the Bell’s powerful network. Lucky Mobile exclusively offers prepaid phone plans, which means you pay for your service upfront, at the beginning of each month before you receive it. One of the major benefits of a prepaid plan is that you get to avoid a pesky credit check. Lucky Mobile’s prepaid plans are among the most affordable on the market but keep in mind, Lucky Mobile throttles data speeds to 3Mbps, which is closer to 3G LTE speeds.
|Budget-friendly prices||3G speeds|

|No credit check||Limited phone selection|
|Unlimited talk and text plans|

What prepaid plans does Lucky Mobile offer?
Lucky Mobile offers a handful of prepaid phone plans that won’t break the bank. They range from data-only plans to unlimited talk and text plus unlimited data. You pay for your plan upfront prior to receiving service, and if you enroll in Automatic Top-Up, which automatically deducts your phone bill from your preferred payment method each month, Lucky Mobile will give you extra monthly data—either 250MB/month or 500MB/month.
Keep in mind, though, that Lucky Mobile’s data is only 3G, which likely won’t meet all of your data needs, especially if you like to stream video and music or play online games. However, if you’re a casual phone user who just wants to browse the web, check email, and scroll through social media, you may not mind the 3G speeds. One perk to Lucky Mobile is it doesn’t charge data overage fees—once you’ve used all your allotted data for the month, your speeds will be slowed to 128Kbps until the next billing cycle. While 128Kbps is nearly unusable, it’s still better than overage fees and you might still be able to get away with web browsing (although your pages will likely take a long time to load).
Who is a Lucky Mobile prepaid plan best for?
A Lucky Mobile prepaid plan is best for budget-conscious customers who prioritize saving money over having the top features. Since Lucky Mobile throttles its speeds to 3Mbps (3G speeds), this carrier isn’t a good option for customers who want to do it all, from binging Netflix to streaming YouTube TV to streaming Spotify. However, if you just need your phone to make calls, send texts, and simple data tasks, such as checking email or browsing the web, then you may want to consider switching to a Lucky Mobile prepaid plan. You could wind up saving hundreds of dollars per year! Not to mention, you can start your plan online in just a few easy steps.

Lucky Mobile: BYOD or buy a new one
You can bring your own phone (BYOP) and simply get a Lucky Mobile SIM Card to get started on a Lucky Mobile prepaid plan. The carrier offers free delivery within 3-5 business days (please note: due to COVID-19, shipping may be delayed). Lucky Mobile SIM cards are compatible with just about any phone–but be sure to check if your device is compatible beforehand.
If you need a phone you can shop on the Lucky Mobile website for phones it carries. Keep in mind, Lucky has an extremely limited selection of phones for purchase. If you want service through Lucky Mobile but want a wider variety of phones to choose from, you may want to consider buying directly through a manufacturer, such as Apple or Samsung—then you can bring your device (BYOD) to Lucky.
