US Cellular has announced that it's lowering the price of its Simple Connect Prepaid plans. Customers can get 1GB of 4G LTE for $45 a month, 2GB for $55, and 4GB for $65. The carrier won't cut off data after you hit any of these limits, but it will slow your connection down.

The prepaid game is heating up. Boost Mobile announced roughly a week ago that it will soon offer its cheapest prepaid smartphone plan for $35, with users getting 1GB of high speed data.

Boost Mobile is one of the many ways you can get on the Sprint network without paying Sprint prices. The prepaid brand offers smartphone plans with unlimited talk and text going from $35 (1GB of data) to $55 (10GB). Starting on February 3rd, it will offer any customer that enrolls in Auto Re-Boost 2.5GB for the price of 1.

For comparison, T-Mobile provides 2GB of data for $45 with its Simple Starter Plan.

Today MetroPCS, a prepaid service offered by T-Mobile, has rolled out a limited-time discounted price for its unlimited 4G LTE plan. Anyone who signs up between now and April 5th can get set up for $50 a month, a $10 savings off the usual price. There's no pre-planned end date, so you can then take advantage of the lower price for quite a while.

For comparison, T-Mobile offers unlimited data on the same network for $80 a month.

Among postpaid plans, shared data has become par for the course. Your family (or "family") gets a certain allocation of data that everyone is allowed to use. This way instead of everyone getting 2GB of 3G/4G LTE, with a few people hardly touching their allotment and others burning through theirs in a week, the heavy users can have at the otherwise unused data as well.

Now Virgin Mobile is bringing the same treatment to prepaid, no-contract plans.

Some Americans waited literally years for the weird and wonderful PadFone series to show up on a local carrier... and were finally unsurprised to see AT&T be the only one to bite. (Seriously, between all that Amazon and HTC hardware, AT&T seems like the only American carrier willing to take a little risk.) Now AT&T and ASUS are teaming up again for the slightly smaller version of the phone-tablet docking concept, the PadFone X Mini.

I used the Motorola DROID RAZR M as my primary phone for over six months. I was in between jobs, my not-so-trusty Galaxy Nexus had been smashed, and I knew from previous experience that Motorola's resurrected RAZR line had tough builds and good radios. While it was ostensibly a "budget phone," that ugly little DROID RAZR M was the most reliable Android device I had ever owned. When I got back on my feet, I skipped flagships from Samsung, LG, and HTC, and went straight for Motorola's next DROID phone.

Newegg is offering up a pretty compelling deal on the Nexus 7 right now. Those interested in picking up a refurbished 16GB model can do so for about $103 (before tax) using VISA Checkout, after a $50 rebate.

This deal is actually a combination of promotions from Newegg - the site is offering 10% off (up to $20) when users select VISA Checkout and use promo code VCO, and Newegg's listing for the refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 offers a $50 rebate (via prepaid card).

The Galaxy S5 is a pricey phone, the cost of which the big four American carriers typically offset by pushing consumers towards two-year contracts. They generally also offer the choice to pay for the entire phone upfront, but people who want to own the phone outright and have the several hundred necessary to do so stand to benefit from shopping around for the lowest price, and lowest commitment, option available. Today both Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile have added their names to the list of providers willing to sell a Galaxy S5, doing so for $599.99 with no contract.

As one of Sprint's prepaid mobile offerings, Boost Mobile's big draw is that it's affordable. But competition has ramped up as of late, and now the carrier has rolled out three new "Monthly Unlimited Select" service plans to shake things up. The offerings range from $40 to $60, and all are technically unlimited, only not really.

Taking a closer look, the lowest plan offers 500MB of data. Users who exceed that amount then find themselves throttled down to 2G speeds for the remainder of the month.
