Red Pocket Mobile has come out with a new plan for low usage users that is really hard to beat. For just $60 per year, subscribers can get 100 minutes, 100 text messages and 500 MB of data to use each month. Red Pocket Mobile uses all 4 major wireless networks in the USA, which include AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. This means that subscribers can sign up for the plan and use the network of their choosing.
It is important to note that for now, if you choose the Verizon plan, your speeds will be limited to 5 Mbps download and 2 Mbps upload. I say "for now" because there has been a rumor going around for weeks that Verizon may lift the speed limit that it places on its MVNO's, however I have not been able to get any MVNO to confirm if this is something that has happened or will happen.
Another important think to note is that if you have an iPhone and want to use it with Red Pocket AT&T, be aware that you may not be able to get MMS working due to the reasons outline here.
This plan is available exclusively through eBay. It is not sold through the Red Pocket website. Similarly, Red Pocket offers a plan for $21.25/month that includes 3 GB of data exclusively through Amazon.
Joe is the founder of BestMVNO.com. He started BestMVNO in 2013, because like many of you, he was unhappy with the high price he was paying his wireless provider for cell phone service. After researching how to cut costs on his phone bill, he came across the terms 'MVNO' and 'prepaid wireless', and learned there was a way he could keep using his favorite network without having to pay a premium price for it. Since then, through BestMVNO.com, Joe has been sharing his research about MVNOs and prepaid wireless so that others can learn how to save money on their own phone bills. Joe's current provider is T-Mobile Prepaid. For inquiries Contact JP
