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.

What do you mean that if offers ATT and Verizon? They are authorized to sell their plans, or it's through those companies. Thanks

Straight Talk is an MVNO, which means they buy bandwidth on  other networks and you get a plan from them. They have on T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon.

Best Cell Carrier

I didn't see a prior topic for this.  Please direct me to one if it exists.

I am in NY and on Sprint, not Framily.  I have an old EVO LTE, on which I find browsing slooooww.  I renewed some lines on my plan some months ago and I'm now about to buy a new phone, the HTC M8.  But, as I was doing that, I was told that AT&T was much faster.  I know that AT&T will provide some credits to offset Sprint's early termination fees on the lines under contract if I go to them, but I cannot determine if AT&T is really faster.  Sprint coverage is fine.  I have googled this issue with no answer.  Can anyone comment as to whether its worthwhile to go to AT&T?  I know that AT&T will only put me on a Framily type plan, so I lose my unlimited plan that I have with Sprint, but the browsing is frustrating.  But maybe its my old phone.  Thoughts?  Thanks.

You can get an unlimited plan with T-Mobile for an individual for $80. And an htc m8 would be $26.50 a month for 24 months $0 up front, and if you do it online they include a free htc fetch $30 value.

A family plan is cheaper. You also can get up to $650 per line when you trade in your device and switch to T-Mobile.

In general between the 4 big carriers, T-Mobile is considered the worst service (reception wise)

5 lines would be $110 for 1gb. $150 for 3gb. $210 for 5GB. $260 for unlimited.

All come with unlimited voice and text you can change how much data you want for each specific line. One line could have 1gb, the other lines could have different amounts depending on what you want for each line.

You can't just generalize since it depends where you use it most. In my office even the allmighty vzw is bad.

You can try out T-mobile absolutely free for 7 days at
http://explore.t-mobile.com/test-drive-free-trial

All they do is put a $750 hold on your CC until you return the phone
