Page Plus Cellular is also now running a customer referral program. The program will run through 12/31/18. It's being run quite a bit different compared to other programs on the market. A maximum of 5 referrals are allowed per month. If you are currently subscribed to either the $29.95 or $39.95 plan and refer a friend to either plan, both you and the friend with receive a $10 data add on card with 2GB of additional LTE data. Those subscribed to the unlimited plan will get to pick a $10 gift card from the restaurant of their choosing if they refer someone to that plan. If you refer a friend to a plan that is different than yours, both you and the friend will receive the reward applicable to your plan.
Total Wireless also offers several plans. They differ from Page Plus Cellular in that unlimited data at 2G speeds is not included with any plan. Once your run out of high speed data with Total Wireless, that's all you get for the month unless you buy a data add on card. The data add on card is priced at $10 for 5GB and it includes data carryover.
Currently Total Wireless is offering those that port in 50% more data on all plans priced $35 and up. Total Wireless's plans with the extra data factored in look like this:
- $23.70/month ($25 without auto pay (w/o AP)) - unlimited talk and text, no data
- $33.20/month ($35 w/o AP) - 7.5GB, normally 5GB
- $47.50/month ($50 w/o AP)- 22.5GB , normally 15GB
- $57.00/month ($60 w/o AP)- 22GB of shared data for up to 2 lines, normally 15GB
- $80.70/month ($85 w/o AP) - 30GB of shared data for up to 3 lines, normally 20GB
- $95/month ($100 w/o AP)- 37.5GB of shared data for up to 4 lines, normally 25GB
All plans include unlimited talk and text.
If you are interested in the iPhone deal, Total Wireless and Page Plus Cellular both offer good value, and both are different enough to not easily be able to recommend one over the other. Do keep in mind though that both are Tracfone owned brands, and Tracfone owned brands have a very poor reputation when it comes to customer support. Total Wireless is the bigger brand and found more readily at many locations including major retail outlets. So maybe that means something.
