NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Finding the best monthly wireless plan used to be easy. You went into a store, selected a phone and how many voice calling minutes you needed and were then given a monthly price. They never really warned you about all the taxes and fees you'd would find on your monthly statement. You just signed an agreement and you were on your way.

So, what are the best plans you can find for your brand new Android smartphone?
