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.

Ring plus is a great option for a Waze only phone. Simple mobile Sims are still around, but very annoying unless you know the dealer or are one. Wait for best buy to have a clearance special on a sprint phone and grab it.
What do you mean by saying that? Has anything changed recently?

Same procedure, but much more expensive and much less available than they used to be. Carlos Slim and tracfone are cracking down, and the spiff program has changed.

I'm a bit confused about what kind of phones work with Ringplus. It seems that Boost and Virgin phones don't work and neither do Sprint prepaid phones. So how do you get a Sprint phone that will work?

It's the $40 plan (talk/text 4gb lte then 2g on T-Mobile service). Works fine in the city.

Because it's less data, and T-Mobile is better for me than Verizon. It's not like I'm actually paying $40. I used the pageplus $55 in the mountains, where T-Mobile doesn't really have service.
