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.

Just tried using hotspot on a vzw iphone 5c and pplus sim. It didn't allow it and said to contact carrier..
Question is if a USB device or real mifi will work.

That's a feature on the phone, not the service. Verizon locks the mobile hotspot capability on the phones. (If you root Androids, you can get it to work. Idk how it works with iPhones.) A mobile hotspot should work, being as it simulates regular usage.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Contract/Prepaid: Contract or prepaid, whichever is better deal
Lines needed: 3 or 4
Total minutes needed: prefer unlimited on at least 2 lines, otherwise need 3000 or more

Total texts per line: prefer unlimited, otherwise need 3000 or more
Total data per line: 1GB or more per line
Smartphones: yes
Would you like a specific carrier? no
Do you have phones already? no

Yes or No
Free nights and weekends? preferred
Unlimited mobile minutes? preferred
Unlimited mobile minutes within a specific carrier? yes

Monthly budget: looking for something around $100 for 4 phones
having looked around it looks like the T mobile family deal for 4 phones monthly for $100 is a good one.
Now just looking for a good deal on the phones themselves.
anyone know where I can get decent android phones for under $100 each ?

Looking for a US (pay as you go) sim card that won't expire if not used for an extended time, being that I spend most of the year abroad. Any help would be appreciated, TIA!

Page Plus sim card seller says it's active, but my phone says "no response from internet".

Device is vzw so doesn't need to be unlocked. Did you test the sim in a phone first?
