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.

If anyone wants an unused Tracfone referral code, you can get it by using my Google form (The code changes every time it's used, so I set the form to close until I reopen it with a new valid code. If it's open, the code is unused).

https://forms.gle/bTw33MNhJS8xQsmBA

Tracfone only seems to be giving 2500 points ($25 worth of service) these days, but it seems to be the same amount regardless of who's code you use.
Yes they keep on lowering the points. I remember when I was able to refer others to join tracfone and get them 8k through the app and 8k through the website. Enough points for 1 year costing them the first month of $10. Lol
 Times have changed. But if still need a referral can glady offer as well. And help you start your plan.

Has anyone else had this problem: Tello resend the same text multiple times?
Has anyone had it on other MVNOs?

TIA

It should let you chose a zip code near you to determine if there's service and based on that will give you a Phone number. That's odd. Try a different browser. Or clear cache and cookies.

Is that part of the promotion requirements?
You can also try any other cheap service that does provide a SIM card like HelloMobile. See the wiki for full list. Most you're saving between these is a few dollars.

What error is it giving you?

Has anyone else had this problem: Tello resend the same text multiple times?
Has anyone had it on other MVNOs?

Likely your phone. What device are you using?
