Looking for a cellphone plan for a tourist that comes to the USA a few times a year, & dials international direct (mainly UK).
Thinking of TING ($6 per month + depending on usage, UK minutes is like regular minutes), does anyone know anything better, on Verizon or Sprint network, or AT&T direct (no at&t mvno, as they have a wait time till it rings, or TMobile)


Contract/Prepaid: rather prepaid
Amount of lines needed: 2
Total minutes needed: varies
Total texts needed per line: 0-100
Total data needed per line: 0
Smartphones? No
Carrier: Verizon or a Verizon MVNO, Sprint or a sprint MVNO, AT&T direct (no MVNO)


What about this ? UK is included. But only landline. No cell phones

tello.com  has  unlimited talk and text for $11 + tax (about 3.50 in NYC)

Unreal Mobile is $10 and zero tax for unlimited talk and text plus 1GB of 4G LTE followed by unlimited 3G data.

Just to clarify
Unreal mobile uses.
Sprint and AT&T networks.
With AT&T you have to use a smartphone and use their app to make calls. So itís a voip service. But with sprint you can use a basic phone as well and itís not voip service.

I have read very negative reviews on unreal about porting numbers can take a few weeks to go through and customer service has very long wait times

I ported a number to Unreal and it went very quick (I initiated the port on a weekend and it completed exactly 24 hours later) and smoothly, no customer service needed.

Service with them has been just as good as with any other provider I've used.

According to slick deals
Sprint's Free Year of Unlimited Service Promo is Ending Soon
Verizon and AT&T customers have until early April to switch to Sprint for a free year of unlimited service (and potentially save up to $840).
