Small List compiled for Flip phone service. Regular service with unlimited data and all to come.

1.Tracfone-All Carriers $20 Talk/Text 1GB ($30 for first 6 months)
1b. Unlimited talk and text, no data $15/month ($10 with auto pay)

2.Mobi-Verizon $10 (Additional $5 off the 1st three months)

3.Tello-Tmobile $8 , US Mobile.

4.HelloMobile-Tmobile $5 (first 2 months for $5)

                 -EXPLAINED A BIT MORE IN DETAIL-
Tracfone Wireless- (CDMA/GSM Verizon/T-Mobile/AT&T)
First 6 months at $30 plus taxes.
Pay for the first 2 months $15 each month with autopay, then use reward points for the next 4 months. Use Referral code OOAB-E354 to get you 8,000 points. You must activate and set up the rewards within 14 days of activating Phone service.
  They limit 5 uses per month, so feel free to PM before using if you want to confirm they work for this month, as well they seem to be changing the referral code after every use. So feel free to post in the thread or message me for a new code.
       The points will only kick in after 60 days of service(hence the reason for keeping paid service for 60 days) the points will kick in getting you 8,000 Points, which is enough for 4 months free. You can redeem 2,000($20) increments for a free month of service and do that for a total of 4 months free.
  Now you must turn off auto pay after the first 2 months in order for the free 4 months that you added to kick in.  If you don't turn off auto pay it will continue billing your credit card and you will not get those free months until you turn off auto pay.
 Works on CDMA or GSM.

 Mobi Wireless- (Verizon/CDMA)
 $10 a month. With a referral code you can get another $5 off the 1st three months which I can give you. You need to sign up in the first week for the referral bonus to kick in.
Click here to pm me for the info.

Depends on the carrier

Do you already have a phone ? Depends on the network you are looking for.
Cheapest I found is on the Tmobile network unlimited talk and text no data meaning no picture mail as well is liberty wireless. $60 a year plus around $5 tax https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Mo-Liberty-Wireless-Prepaid-Wireless-Phone-Plan-/133314392847?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292

Us mobile is on Verizon network and is not really unlimited they have a cap I am not sure the exact number, And no data at all meaning no picture mail

I recently found this . They told me itís really unlimited no caps, plus 1 Gb data. I have not tried it yet https://mobi.com/plan

If the liberty wireless network runs on T-Mobile, then do I have to unlock my T-Mobile phones to use on liberty wireless?

I emailed liberty Network this question. And they told me that any phone has to be unlocked for their service.

Anyone have any luck bargaining down fees incurred for calling international while roaming, due to user not knowing?
This is with a Tmobile postpaid plan

This is a very interesting Service plan.

 Seems if you buy a plan from tracfone, let's say the unlmtd talk and text which gets you 1gb of data and 9999 texts, 9999 Minutes.
 This would extend that for one years time for $59.

 I just closed a phone line today, or by accident had the line shut. Otherwise would have tried this.
 Don't think I need more than 1200 min a month. Even if it lasts me 6 months it's still worth it.

Trying to migrate my sprint biz to t-mobile biz and not having success. CS tells me to go to the store and vice versa. One store told me that he hasn't seen a successful migration since October. Instead I will port my 2 lines to another carrier and port back to t-mobile. Any ideas of carriers that will be cheapest + fastest?

I just did it on a personal account, I requested a T-Mobile sim via online chat. Received the sim 2 days later.
But activation was not successful via online chat. I had to call. It took a 20 minute call to finish

Twitter?

Twitter, Facebook of iMessage. I recently used iMessage and could not believe how quickly, efficiently, and verbosely the responses were coming back. If it wasnít so perfectly responsive to my very specific inquiries i would have thought it was a bot.

How did you initiate the chat on your phone? Were you eligible for any new customer promotions with T-Mobile like BOGO?

How did you initiate the chat on your phone?

It only works on the iPhone, scroll all the way left for search, search for T-Mobile, scroll down to Business, and click the chat icon for T-Mobile:
