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.

He said he needs it for upstate NY.
I dont know the exact location he needs it. But AT&T should have the best signal in most of upstate New York

Fi in Florida is a disaster ! As they put you on Sprint tower, so when on call's you don't have internet.

Anyone can recommend a good service ? (2 line's)

So the pixel 3 does not support it?  Do they have a list of supported phones ?

I have a open market Motorola X4 and a Verizon iphone 7 on sprint and both do not get data while on a call

Don't know if they have a list.. the CS didn't seem suprise that on Sprint tower it doesn't work..

i have sprint on pixel 3a you need to make sure VoLTE is selected

Maybe Fi on a Sprint tower it's different that a Sprint sim ..

Either way I want to switch from Fi !! And recommendation ??

But they don't support my phone which they did.

And if they use Sprint tower and will have the same issue as FI even if it's free it will not help me.

Need a phone for a few days till the new phone arrives in the mail  (phone broke down)

Can I purchase a cell phone from Best buy or Apple then return the phone without a restocking fee within 14 days?
