Is GoSmart T-Mobile or TracFone?

Up till 2016 GoSmart Mobile was a brand service offered by T-Mobile. With the GoSmart prepaid plans T-Mobile addressed a large group of budget-minded customers that didn’t want to be locked in a two-year contract. In 2016 GoSmart was bought by TracFone, but the plans and services offered by the low budget carrier remained the same. GoSmart is also still using the mobile network of T-Mobile, since they don’t have their own towers.

GoSmart Mobile has a business model that is defined in three easy steps.

  1. Provide your own phone. This device had to be compatible with GoSmart Mobile’s services. If your phone (Iphone, Samsung or other phone) is still locked to another carrier, make sure to unlock your device first.
  2. Order a GoSmart Mobile prepaid kit that fits your needs and requirements. Wait for the delivery. The SIM Kit will be on its way to you and you will be updated with the shipping information and its transit status through email.
  3. Activate the SIM and choose a plan. When you receive your SIM Kit, you can insert this in your device and activate. You can then choose your plan and services via the website, GoSmartMobile.com. You can pay online for your service in advance for 30 days at a time.

If you have paid and installed the GoSmart SIM card and your mobile data is still not working, this might be caused by invalid APN settings. The GoSmart APN and MMS settings need to be programmed on your device before you can send MMS messages, surf on the internet and receive and send emails. Make sure to follow the instructions and values below strictly as stated and don’t include any space where there is none in the instruction. Another thing to be aware of is that the APN settings for GoSmart can differ per device or operating system: if you have a Samsung, make sure to follow the Android instructions instead of the iPhone APN settings.

GoSmart Coverage and Internet Speed

When you’re looking for a wide coverage, high speed internet carrier there are a few things two keep in mind. First of all: make sure you have a phone that is able to reach 4G LTE speeds. GoSmart Offers high speed internet plans, but if your phone does not support the 4G network it is pointless to choose and pay for a (more expensive) LTE plan. The next thing is that ‘unlimited internet’ plans often come at a price: low internet speed. When everyone has an unlimited plan, streaming video’s is very tempting. This can slow down the connection considerably. As for the coverage: GoSmart does not have it’s own radio towers and uses the T-Mobile mobile network. Although T-Mobile has a nation wide coverage, there can be differences per region. Make sure to check the GoSmart coverage at the places where you spend most of your time. You can check the Internet speed and coverage in your region on Opensignal.
