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.

Tello Mobile (GSM/T-Mobile)

T-Mobile has a unique feature. I believe other carriers don't have. Is WiFi calling on your primary line. No 3rd party softwar needed
  Let's say your office has no reception. But you have WiFi there you can talk and text and of course browse the web on your phone.

Data point: not on all phones.
Know someone with a Moto X which does not support WiFi calling, and in the mountains (south fallsburg town) he had zero service

I forgot to add. It has to be a T-Mobile branded smartphone in order the WiFi calling should work. I believe the moto X is not T-Mobile branded.

Separate story: Moto told me that the X was built for T-Mobile, and the unlocked comes with a T-Mobile Sim, but T-Mobile claims that the phone doesn't work in their network at all, but after a while they agreed for service, but had to buy a new Sim card, cuz the one that came along "could be very old"

I have airvoice wireless, and people are complaining that they call me and hear funny beeps, and it doesn't ring nor go to voicemail.

Anyone else experience this?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I would try taking ou the Sim put it back in. If that doesn't work it is probably the phone. What kind of phone do you have?

haha my sim does that all by itself!!

It's a nokia flip phone. I don't like it. Once it just deleted all my contacts without asking. It does funny things sometimes. I'd replace it but there isn't a thread for flip phone recommendations :(

I think the wiki needs links and details about different plans and carriers. This may help people avoid waiting for answers from members. I would love to do it but I usually only have time when I'm mobile

I think there are a bunch of websites that do that. All you need to do is find a good one and link to it.

Hello all,


I have 6 lines on a family plan with sprint and we are paying $340. This includes unlimited data. We can cap data off at 10gb or even 12gb.

Does anyone have prices for Verizon or ATT for the same amount of lines and data?
