Xtreme Mobile Prepaid Cellular Service Review

Xtreme Mobile is a smaller prepaid cellular provider based in White Plains, New York that has taken the route of offering simple plans to consumers hoping to stand out from their sometimes complicated counterparts.
Xtreme Mobile routes their calls through the Sprint PCS network allowing for high quality calling through a prepaid provider.
Pros: Xtreme Mobile has an extremely (no pun intended) simple service plan that makes it easy for anyone to use the service and know what they're spending. Additionally, minutes do not expire with Xtreme Mobile. Calls are routed through the Sprint PCS network, allowing big brand quality.
Cons: There are limited phone choices and the service is a bit expensive compared to other service providers with the access charge. Xtreme Mobile also doesn't have many additional features outside of the basic phone features and text messaging.

Detailed Provider Information
Plans: Xtreme Mobile has two service offerings. On the base plan all calls are charged at 15 cents per minute for anytime minutes, with unlimited nights and weekends (9 p.m. to 7 a.m.). There is also an access fee of 60 cents per day. The access fee is charged per day, whether or not you actually use the phone on that day. With the Presto plan, you get everything you do with the base plan, but also get free push to talk.
