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.

I currently have Verizon (old plan XL) with 5 lines. Looking to switch or upgrade to unlimited.

How do Sprint, T-mobile and Verizon compare in Lakewood?
Service questions are practically impossible to answer. Everybody has a different experience based on where they use their phone.

I use a Sprint mvno and I'm only slightly annoyed so far :)

Whats the best option for an unlimited talk, text and data plan in monsey/spring valley?
i know that Verizon is probably the best service but also the most expensive (and the worst customer service),
so any alternatives (fair price, and good service)?

For the past few months, it's been terrible, no reason to pay so much for Verizon with this reception

Look into Verizon prepaid with autopay discount and buying refills on Ebay for close to 30 percent off . The 16gb plan is a gr8 plan

These cards aren't mailed so just choose a different state as "shipping" address

I'm assuming if you have a credit in your account they charge that first

We all agree. My mistake.
I misread his post. I read it that if you have a credit card on file then they will use that first.
