I have been with US Mobile for the past three months; and I would say that their service is great, not a single problem with them. Regarding the cost, there is a huge drop in my bill over the previous major US carrier, the only thing that some people (may) dislike is that they don't offer phones with big discounts, and I understand this is to keep the cost low; and I have no problem as I use my fully paid phones and I like it this way.
US Mobile is IMHO the best pre-paid/MVNO carrier for many reasons:
2. They give priority/fast data on their Warp network which is the same speed and coverage as Verizon Play/Do/Get More, up to 100GB
3. They have the 2nd best customer service of any carrier (2nd only to ** which is twice as expensive) as you can get a human on phone or chat quickly and they fix almost every issue 1st call
4. The app and website are great and support eSIM so signing up and activating is easy
Only concern is if you use more than 100GB they are not the best, and other than the pooled plan they charge an extra $2 fee that is not advertised. The "perks" reimbursement is hard to get as others have said, but even without it US Mobile Unlimited is the cheapest family plan carrier on the Verizon network ($20-25). FYI I am a self-proclaimed expert on MVNOs and have tried many carriers so this opinion is after both personal experience and extensive research.

After shopping 12 different Cell Services, I chose US Mobile. The price is a Tiny Bit higher than the cheapest I could find but the (almost) instant HELPFUL customer service made my decision. FREE Try.
We have been with US Mobile now for 3yrs and have not had any problems with their service. We use 30g of data each a month on the unlimited plan. The data speeds do slow down in congested areas such as big cities. Also, have not had any issues with customer service.
- They offer 100 days free trial, KEEPS STOPING DATA SERVICE CONSTANTLY.
- They brag about so many thing they do not have or do!
Bottom line: unlimited data have a funny meaning for them, 15 GB. Regardless you contact them soooo many times about no having internet connection on your device.
Absolutely horrible customer service. They do not care about the customer one bit. Don't expect any better service in one of their locations either. Associates are even less help. Happy to sell you a phone and more but no tech or account help. Unfortunately most cell providers are much the same way. They have us over a barrel and they take full advantage.
Most people don't have alternative phone access, aside from at their jobs, so it feels like a big deal to be out of service. For two weeks. Spending more than 5 hours on the phone, sending more than 10 emails. Being charged extra money to switch between a "Warp 5G" and "GSM LTE" sim card just to see if it works. All while being lied to that this money will be fully refunded. At least, it felt like a big deal to me.
When things work, they work, and when they don't you speak to a different customer service person every day who is entirely unfamiliar with what has already been attempted and who made what promises. They don't really seem to understand technology better than the customer, and so they make you jump through the script over and over again. Rather than issue refunds as promised, they will try to give a discount on future service to force you to stay for a few more months. On social media they seem very responsive, but they send a public message and privately never contact you.
Out of the blue my phone service disconnected. I spent over an hour on chat with a support agent going through APN settings, pulling the SIM out and resetting network settings. In the end, they did not know what happened. Did not offer a refund or resolution. Only to port to another carrier. This experience has shown me their service is not reliable and can become cumbersome if problems arise. Being a business that requires service, I would caution against signing up for their services.
The phone service itself is not too bad. The calls drop a little more often than AT&T service, but, as I said, not much. Sometimes reception is garbled, sometimes the other caller can't hear you well. AS I said, worse than AT&T but very little. They are significantly cheaper, though. Where they are horrid is their customer service. For example, they do NOT tell you when your plan that you paid for will expire. When I asked them to put me on autopay, they said they did, but they did not, and I was left without phone service as NOBODY told me, via email or anything else, that my plan had expired. ZERO communication.
Perks they advertise as part of the plans are too much trouble to get monthly credit for (you have to give your first born), they will push you out of your plan a year or two out as they want to change them to make more money. They advertise that esims or certain phones/esim work but they do not. Tested on international plan. Never worked. They add unlimited in front of everything making it super confusing or super Unlimited super confusing.. They were better off keeping it simple like a few years ago would have been better... one unlimited plan + other plans..
