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.

Maybe Visible. $40 a month unlimited, and can be cheaper if you join with other people (not a "family plan", each one is separate.)

But you need a supported device.

I have a verizon line, can I buy a T Mobile prepaid SIM, port over the verizon line to T Mobile (T Mobile will pay any fees including anything owed to payoff the phone) and then port back from T Mobile to Verizon. The goal being to get a new cellphone deal by switching carriers from T Mobile to Verizon but keeping my original cell phone number.

As others mentioned, Visible. First month is $25, then you join a "party"/family plan and it stays $25 for unlimited. search on reddit for people with slots on their visible accounts. each accnt remains separate so no sharing billing

Visible is owned by verizon but uses only their LTE. They used to have a speed cap, it's been removed (long before corona). They have unlimited hotspot too.   I used them, on their ZTE r2 branded phone, and its was acceptable. Much better if you BYOD. You get a $100 mastercard GC if you BYOD, port, and keep for two months. (yes, you can do this, cancel and make a $50 profit).

Give em a try

Been on a work plan for last 5 years, switching jobs this week so need to find something within a week to get my number ported. DW is on a family Tmobile plan for about $30 a month all in with everything unlimited, but they can't add anyone to that plan. Trying to unlock an old Iphone 7 that was on AT&T, and then look for a new phone. Need unlimited talk/text and probably 5gb a month internet. In NYC area. Would probably buy an older version Iphone or something in the sub $200 range, just need a phone with an OK camera and for basic internet. Suggestions - going to look through this thread now, but haven't looked at plans in over 5 years so need a little guidance. Thanks!

* I saw the Altice plan but I'm a Fios customer, not Optimum.
