I am signed to the $4 plan ($4.32 with tax). I expected it to go up on my 2nd month to the new $8 price, but it stayed the same...their customer service (which is pretty bares bones minimal) did not indicate it would go up but they have not mentioned any grandfathering, either.
For now, it's a great deal at $4.
Although it says the $8 is sold out, if you click on it, it says to call a number about the plan? Kinda odd, since I handled everything online on my signup. They must have a need to control number of customers signed up, but not sure the benefit. Actually, not sure of what market or business plan they are executing!

Service from Beast Mobile should be roughly equivalent to other Sprint-network or AT&T-network MVNOs that don't have any roaming capability. (Most MVNOs do not.)
There is a possibility that Beast data connection could be throttled, or have a lower prioritization than some other MVNOs. And it's certainly possible that some urban areas may have enough congestion that deprioritization could be problematic.
beamen4345, have you used Beast Mobile in a particular urban area? If it was problematic, that could be useful info for others.
Update: I was with Beast since April until now with one phone. Never used the app, but was on the unlimited talk/text for $4 for 6 months, then went to $8 on Sprint network.
Didn’t have any issues until getting email last week of November about them moving billing platforms and shouldn’t receive any interruption in service. But few days later, service cutoff and customer service couldn’t get me active again.
So had to port out (Tello), but no issues in doing so. I would consider going back if they stay in business, however their website doesn’t even advertise the $8 plan anymore.
