Things To Know About Red Pocket Mobile

Overview

Red Pocket Mobile is a prepaid MVNO that was founded in 2006.  The company has partnered with AT&T (GSMA), Sprint (CDMAS), T-Mobile (GSMT) and Verizon (CDMAV) to provide service to its customers. Their plans have traditionally focused on catering to those who have a need to call internationally and who speak other languages.

You don’t have to have international calling needs to subscribe to Red Pocket Mobile. Red Pocket’s phone plans are competitively priced, and can particularly be a great value to low usage customers.

Review

I took a test run of their service by subscribing to one of the company’s CDMAV (Verizon) plans for over two months. If you are not sure if Red Pocket Mobile is for you, perhaps this review can help.

Where To Buy Service Plans And SIM Cards

SIM card kits can be purchased directly from Red Pocket Mobile as well as through Amazon and eBay, Dollar General, CVS and many other locations throughout the country. If you are interested in initiating service with the company, you may first want to check out their Amazon and eBay deals.  Red Pocket Mobile offers exclusive deals and plans through each retailer.  Some of those plans include multi-month discount plans which are significantly cheaper than what they sell directly on their own website.

Supported Phones And Devices

Red Pocket Mobile doesn’t really offer many phones for sale. If you’ve already got your own phone, it will be compatible with Red Pocket Mobile as long as it is paid off, out of contract and hasn’t been flagged lost or stolen. Universally unlocked phones from manufacturer’s such as Motorola and Samsung are also compatible.

Be aware that if you have an Apple iPhone, Apple will block MMS picture messaging from working properly on Red Pocket’s GSMA plans.  The GSMA plans correspond to AT&T’s network.

Customer Support

Customer support is available over the phone, by online chat and through social media.  They offer customer support in 4 different languages including English, Spanish, Chinese and Filipino.

Porting Out From Red Pocket Mobile

Porting out requires you to know your account number and pin number. For CDMAV plans, your account number is your phone number. Your PIN number is the last 4 digits of your phone number. The account number that you see in your account dashboard cannot be used for porting out. It is likely that your account number and PIN number works the same for Red Pocket Mobile's other network plans.

I decided to try Red Pocket after being a customer of Verizon for over 15 years. I did a little bit of research before choosing Red Pocket and I liked the idea of staying on the same network. My plan was to transfer 1 phone over to test the plan, and transfer over 3 more phones if successful. I ordered a CDMA sim card on 11/6 directly from their website after verifying it had good coverage in my area and my phone was compatible with the SIM card. I received a SIM card about 5 days later I and attempted… Read more »

Good luck, you’ll need it. I bought a Sim from them probably a year ago now. And every time I try to activate on my unlocked phone it spits out a new random error. Customer service is nice and all but ultimately useless.

I’m trying to figure out how things would play out in the following scenario. Let’s say I get the annual plan with Red Pocket and then I want to travel to Canada or Mexico. If I want service, is my only option to get another temporary plan and swap SIM cards? I used to have Cricket, and they had an option to upgrade the plan to work in Canada, so I made use of this for one month. But if I were to travel to Canada (or Mexico) while on the Red Pocket annual plan, what would be my option(s)… Read more »

If I wanted to have a Verizon-network MiFi on Red Pocket, I could not use one of RP’s data-only plans (GSM). But I assume if I bought one of RP’s Verizon CDMA network plans with an appropriate amount of data, it’d work (i.e., there’s no problem with using a complete phone service sim in a CDMA MiFi). Is that correct?

The data only plans are on AT&T. Not to say your VZW MiFi won’t work. Contact support and check the IMEI.

Are they offering unthrottled 4glte up to the data limit, then free 2g after that like the major carriers? I am very interested but concerned about potential overage charges.

Joe Paonessa

There are no overage charges. Some plans include hard capped data with data top ups available if you need to add more. Other plans include unlimited 2G.

Thanks. I am assuming the unused data does not roll over?

Should let people know that RedPocketMobile doesn’t support FaceTime over cellular connection. Also doesn’t support full MMS. For some people it’s a deal breaker!

Hi Serg. That’s not exactly true. Red Pocket Supports MMS and FaceTime on 3 out of its 4 networks. The only one that doesn’t work right is on its GSMA plans which are it’s ATT plans. And it’s not really Red Pocket that doesn’t support it, it’s Apple. Apple blocks it from working on iPhones unless the carrier/MVNO offers Apple some sort of compensation to get it to work. It’s a dirty business. This is a topic that’s been covered here before and BestMVNO does list that the plan won’t work if you click on any plan above with this… Read more »

Ugh, AT&T and Apple. I will never buy an Apple product after hearing my friends and neighbors talk so disparagingly about their Apple phones, and the issues they’re having with Apple are quite parallel. My former father-in-law worked for AT&T for over 33 years before retirement; surprisingly, his assessment of AT&T confirmed my suspicions that the company is not an innovator but an assimilator: they have money but no drive, so what they can’t make themselves, they buy out. Another example of a corporation with the attitude of “too big to fail”. Plus, their Customer Service is second-to-all (firsthand experience).… Read more »

what about the refund policy if i don’t like the network red pocket? what if there is a issue with the network?

Thanks for the helpful review! I recently switched from Verizon postpaid to prepaid and have noticed a huge difference in latency due to postpaid customers receiving higher priority. Do you know, would using an MVNO like Red Pocket be a similar experience in network priority to being a Verizon prepaid customer?

Looking for just talk; no text or data but the $10 per month might work. How much is the “taxes and fees”. Looking for under $15 per mo. Live in TN
