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)
$8 Month with Unlimited t&t and no data. Picture message might not work without data services.
$10 unlimited Talk/Text + 1GB. 60 free international destinations - UK, Canada, France etc but not Israel

If you need unlimited high speed internet, look into T-Mobile One. It's $140 (plus tax) for the first 4 lines. Each extra line is $20 + tax.

Look into their promotions. They have something for people porting in from other carriers.

currently we're paying $240 for 4 lines unlimited with sprint,
we're thinking of switching to verizon;
wondering if there are any promotions out there?
does switching even make sense?
we would be going to 5-6 lines and we would need at least 12+2 gb
if anyone can help out a little will be appreciated:)
TIA
Sprint shouldn't be $240 for 4 lines. Should be $160 (2 for $100 +$30/addl line).
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I think the first two are $75 each.

Call account services and tell them that you're considering switching due to attractive rates and superior service by their competitors. Mention this plan and ask if you can be switched to it as a retention offer instead of porting out.

Does this include phones (discounted with a contract)?

That's what happens when you don't read...

"Discounted phone: additional $25/mo. per line." To be honest, that sounds terrible. What kind of phones are you looking for?

I think they're willing to let existing customers get on this plan so they can throttle their video and music streaming speeds.

It does start off, switch..
Later on it says available to all...
@phones, some would be top of the line (ie pixle xl) the rest will be cheaper ones (ie moto g/g+)

I think they're willing to let existing customers get on this plan so they can throttle their video and music streaming speeds.
does that mean that I'll have slower speeds than I currently have?

How long have you been with them? Which plan are you currently on? If it's an older one you can factor in your subsidized phone still.. for the moment.

I think the current unlimited plans don't have any throttling, it seems like this plan has throttling for video/music/gaming and everything else is full speed.

I don't use these forums often, so I guess im not familiar with with the proper etiquette. I came across their site, got myself service, and thought i would share it, genuinely for the purpose of sharing a good deal. I do apologize if this was the wrong thing to do.
How much tax do they collect ?

They charged me $3 per line. I'm pretty sure that's monthly.
