Small List compiled for Flip phone service. Regular service with unlimited data and all to come.

1b. Unlimited talk and text, no data $15/month ($10 with auto pay)

3.Tello-Tmobile $8 , US Mobile.

                 -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.

I got a code to get the S4 Mini for free (its usually at $49.99) with VZW contract.

If anyone is interested I'd be happy to share.

no, Verizon.
So are you going with page plus or Verizon contract?

Nice... enjoy it! Careful with that data limit, though. I wouldn't last more than a week with that kind of cap, and I spend a majority of my day in Wifi hotspots!

Many Verizon 4g phones can be manually flashed to Page Plus or other prepaid carriers on VZW's network. Which phone is it? Which carrier does he want, and which plan?

Is the Verizon Edge program a good deal?
Now that they are giving a $20 discount for edge phones it seems pretty tempting.
Any thoughts?

The discount is on the line access charge. It is $20 instead of $40.

Virgin Mobile getting worse...
Used to be first 2.5GB you had 4G/3G speed, and after using it up it was reduced to 3G/2.5G,

Now this:

VMFreeMsg: Starting 5/6/14, if you use over 2.5GB of data during your mo. plan cycle, data speeds will now be reduced to 2G speeds. Info at http://msg4u.us/vwae
