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.

Tello Mobile (GSM/T-Mobile)

If it's passed the 60-day period, just go to tfwunlockpolicy.com and follow the directions to unlock it, then it should probably work on all carriers. You need to actually unlock it, as opposed to iPhones, which unlock automatically.

Looking for a very very basic flip phone that can be TAGed and a very cheap plan just for emergencies, even a few hundred minutes if there is such a thing?
Thank you so much

Tello has custom plans with a few hundred minutes. Ranges between $5-$8. I am pretty sure this phone is unlocked, cheap, and can be TAGged.

I bought a Shock flip phone from Target on boost mobile (like $50total with a month of servicel)
Some models that cannot be officialy TAGED have quite good parental controls to lock everything down, which was fine with me for a short trip to the US

Tracfone has a sale every now and then on the TCL Flip 2 that comes with 1200 texts and minutes for a whole year for $20. It can be filtered.

If you don't want to wait you can purchase it for $60 on eBay at https://www.ebay.com/itm/284929348244?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=5qnSHkEMSvO&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=RLgacEyGRd-&var=586709186374&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

Does Tracfone enable one to turn on and off text messaging like Tello?

It says network locked but the US Cellular version doesnt come locked. (I bought it myself and used it in Israel straight out of the box.)
