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)

Getting a new phone, currently have a Galaxy S21, and I'm mostly happy with it, so the easy thing is to switch to the S23. However, my favorite phone was the original Moto X, I loved the size, feel, and features. I'm wondering if the Pixel would be a comparable replacement, specifically the Pixel 7A. Would the smaller size be sacrificing all that much in performance?

I'm also considering the Galaxy Flip 4. The idea of being able to do some functions with a closed, folded phone seems like a major benefit, as does using the phone in a "half folded" state. I'm thinking the size of the folded phone in my pocket would also be a huge plus. Does anyone have real world experience using the phone? Are there drawbacks to the flip that make the benefits not worthwhile? Is the dip in performance compared to say, the S23 not worth the benefits?
Won't last as long not as good battery life / cameras. Compelling nonetheless.

us mobile will come out 35 per line for 100 gig they also have perks with this plan like free international Data Free Spotify and they have good costumer service .
You can do visible on 5 different email address but the service is slow
I came across the T-Mobile essential plan it's 5 lines for $120 and says unlimited with 50 gb premium data, anything wrong with this plan I should know about seems like the cheapest option

It's not so cheap because it is not taxes and fees included so all the taxes and fees will come out a lot of money.
If your looking for premium data and 50gb is enough you can go with Us Mobile unlimited essential plan it's $30 a line including taxes and fees, us mobile is also very reliable company , if you need unlimited data you can go with cricket wireless it comes out $25 a line by but it's not premium data and no hotspot .
You can also do total by Verizon comes out $30 per line for unlimited fast Data plus 10gb hotspot, the problem is it's owned by TracFone and it is very hard to deal with them.
Verizon also has a plan for 5 limes comes out $30 per line unlimited data (not premium but probably pretty fast cuz Verizon direct) with no hotspot.
Please lmk if you need more info or you wanna know more.

Best would be a tmobile UNLOCKED phone.
Verizon unlocked will work but might not have all the frequencies for optimal service.

My wife is using the sonim sp3 T-Mobile version.
Before this one she used the Verizon version and it worked as well.

My friends are using the tracfone tcl T408DL, which is the Verizon version but when unlocked (after having it active on tracfone for 60 days) it has all the GSM bands required for any carrier you choose, and is very easy to kosher it by myself using the tools available on apps4flips

Seemed like it was a service outage last night but it corrected itself.

If anyone wants an unused Tracfone referral code, you can get it by using my Google form (The code changes every time it's used, so I set the form to close until I reopen it with a new valid code. If it's open, the code is unused).

https://forms.gle/bTw33MNhJS8xQsmBA

Tracfone only seems to be giving 2500 points ($25 worth of service) these days, but it seems to be the same amount regardless of who's code you use.
