For the longest time those interested in service with Red Pocket have been able to pick up discounted cell phone plans via the companies eBay store and more recently through its Amazon store. To get those discounts, subscribers had been required to pay for several months of service in advance.
That is not entirely the case today.
Red Pocket Mobile has been busy the past several weeks updating its phone plans. Those updates have begun to trickle down to its Amazon and eBay stores. In fact, the company is actually now selling its best valued plan through Amazon and eBay as opposed to offering it directly through the Red Pocket Mobile website.
Red Pocket Mobile is an MVNO that operates on all 4 major networks in the USA, which include AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. The value plan that they are selling is available to be used on your choice of any of those 4 networks. It is being offered at an introductory price of $29.75 and it includes unlimited talk and text with 3 GB of hard capped high speed data, a free SIM card and free shipping with an Amazon Prime subscription. Unlimited international talk is also included on all networks, and international texting is available on the AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile based plans. After the one month of service is up, subscribers will either have to switch to Red Pocket's similarly priced standard plan which features unlimited talk, text, and data with the first 2.5 GB at high speeds for $30/month, or they can continue with the 3 GB plan if they are willing to pay for service several months in advance.
Those willing to pay for several months of service in advance will get the 3 GB plan at a huge discount. Pay 6 months in advance or a total of $153 and you'll get the plan at an average cost of just $25.50/month. If you pay for a year in advance or a total of $255 you'll get the plan at an average cost of just $21.25! This is far and away the cheapest way to get an unlimited talk, and text plan with at least 3 GB of data on the Verizon, Sprint and AT&T networks. Those interested in a plan on the T-Mobile network can get a similar type of offer from Mint SIM.
Subscribers who are a little more daring, don't have to first sign up for the $29.75 plan to be able to get the huge multi month discounted plan. The 6 month and 12 month plans are also available right now through Amazon and you can get the 6 month plan here, and the 12 month plan here.
