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.

Tello Mobile (GSM/T-Mobile)
$8 Month with Unlimited t&t and no data. Picture message might not work without data services.

I never signed up for rewards, I'm with tracfone for a few months already, but since it is not on autopay, when the month lapses and I have yet to make a payment, I have to restart/reactivate, and i usually get a welcome to tracfone message, and also an offer to signup to rewards,
Can I still use your link to get the bonus points?

As we see in this thread, there are reports of all codes earning only 5 after November 1st. Nevertheless, Tracfone rewards may still be resetting the code after each use and limiting it to 5 per month. There have been reports of people who tried to use a 'maxed out' code, got an error message, and then weren't able to successfully enter another valid code. My system of reloading my newest code to my Google forms response is a safe way to get a code that hasn't yet been used. Of course, whoever has more data points or info, please post it.

My google form link (shortened): https://forms.gle/sZMS2vmtZMcmfzwo9
Form is now reopened with a new working code

Re tracfone unlock policy.
I got the eBay deal with the annual plan.
60 days have past. I received the text that my phone is eligible to unlock. Itís unlocked now.

Can I use the same active sim / line insert it into a new tracfone and after 60 days I will get another opportunity to unlock this new phone ?

Tracfone referral codes are still available using this form. The form closes each time a code is used and opens with a new one, preventing old codes from being tried (which can mess up the reward). Please request a code only when your new service is activated and you are ready to enter the code. Terms say only one welcome bonus per ESN.

Yes, a number of them can have email. Including the Kyocera DuraXV LTE E-4610 which is probably the best (but not cheap) flip phone.

(The discussion is more suitable for the REVIVE THE FLIP PHONE thread.)

Since nobody replied, let me ask about Visible. They have an unlimited plan for $30 a month. I have Chase offers for $25 off $30. Is this too good to be true? Will I get locked in to a plan that automatically renews every month?

Chase Offers is probably for one month, so not "too good to be true."

There is no "lock in" with Visible, you can switch/cancel anytime.

20k gets you a $300 promo code to buy a phone. The promo code takes up to $300 off one order and you don't need to spend $300 (but you can only use the code once like any promo code). Or you can go for $200 worth of service. That's 13 months on the $15 plan, or the 1-year $199 unlimited+ 24 GB data plan.

The couple of times that I chatted with them, they were better than ok. Effort was very good.
