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.

True . but they may not have all the bands that your network requires for LTE. They are primarily used for international roaming

Can you use a non-prepaid verizon phone on verizon prepaid? Any decent non-smartphones?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Yes any verizon phones goes to Any Verizon carrier.
If I'm not mistaking, a Palm Centro/Pixi  is a decent non smart phone

Better chance to get charges removed from an ATT bill chat or phone?
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

So I got the Citi AT&T card and now I need an AT&T cellphone plan.
What's the best price I can get on  2 lines no annual contract...we'll use approximately 5 gb or less between both lines.

Republic wireless is $10/month with unlimited talk/text and free roaming, if you don't mind a smartphone. Cricket has better coverage than metro pcs (att vs TMobile). Ptel is also Tmobile, but is $20 a month. Redpocket is $30/month, the cheapest with Verizon service. Pageplus is also $30, for 1200 minutes, 3000 texts, and 500 mb data.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

You're not beating republic wireless, though. $10 for unlimited talk/text with free roaming. No other mvno offers roaming.
