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.

Do Lyca plans come with unlimited data. All their plans say 'x' amount of 4G but they don't specify if you get throttled data after that limit.
Anyone know?

Whats best plan on Verizon network unlimited talk & text / no data?
Direct from Verizon seems to be $30. Is there significant tax?

What about with 1GB Data?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

If you don't need data, VZW prepaid is the way to go.

For data Page plus gives you unlimited data with 1.5GB high speed for $40.

You should be able to buy recharge vouchers tax free from online sellers.

Thanks. Page Plus Wiki says 1GB. Has that changed?

What benefit do you get for paying $5 more to Verizon?

"The estimated charge on the credit card in purchasing the $25 Plan with the billing address in New Jersey is $29.33." Thats basicly the same as buying Verizon cards online.
You can get online here.
Should be noted they don't have 4G. Also there is no roaming.
Verizon prepaid customers are on a different network than regular phone. Is total on the prepaid network?
Also how does the customer experience compare to Page Plus? Lastly can you use a 4g device like an iPhone?

I have a grandfathered Sprint plan. I'm leaning towards changing to Page Plus, but don't want to give up my "grandfatherness" just yet. I know you can put an account on hold for a couple of months. Would I be able to port my number to PP, yet retain my Sprint account?

You can port a number without cancelling the line?
