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)

how would you rate their service ?  the customer service ?
I only use it for talking and texting (in Lakewood). It works well.

I only had to use their customer service once to get a refund. I don't remember the exact response time but it wasn't long.

In my opinion talk and text is good with all carriers in NYC.

I'm assuming Sprint is looking to expand their customer base so they charge very little.

Never used international calling

Tello pay as you go plan or $5 for 500mb + unlimited 2g data afterwards

Obviously depends how much you use and if you'll have good service with Sprint.

Tello uses sprint but many Verizon phones will work on sprint or tello. You can use an imei checker for byod on sprint's site or maybe tello site

Maybe they buy prepaid phones that have activation pins attached to them and they sell them separately?
Just found this listing

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F372729577784

Seems to be what you're saying based on picture.

Anyways the Verizon cards are now like 35. And simple mobile is like 20. Go figure.
