Prepaid Phones On Sale This Week Jan 18 - Jan 30

TracFone LG Ultimate 2 with Accessories
Welcome to Prepaid Phone News' regular Sunday Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week post listing the best current US prepaid and unlocked phone deals.

This week's Deal of the Week is the TracFone LG Ultimate 2 Android phone  bundled with 1200 minutes, 1200 texts, 1200 MBs of data and one year of service for $84.96 at HSN. Update 1/26: Sold out.

The Ultimate 2 alone lists for $129.99 although it can be found for as low as $59.99. The airtime alone sells for $99.99 so this is a pretty good deal. HSN also throws in a generic case and car charger that would run you a couple of bucks at your local dollar store.

The Ultimate 2 is generally considered one of TracFone's best current Android phones. It uses the Verizon network, runs Android 4.4 KitKat and has a 4.5 inch 800x480 px screen, 1 GB of RAM, a dual core 1.2 Ghz CPU, SD card slot and a removable battery. There's 5 MP autofocus main camera with LED flash and a 1.3 front facing camera.

  1. Can you get the TracFone Alcatel Onetouch Sonic from HSN and then pop the SIM into any other GSM phone to use the airtime?

    1. Only if you can get the phone unlocked. TracFones are considered almost impossible to unlock. Most unlocking services won't have anything to do with them.

    2. What I'm asking is can I put the TracFone SIM into my own unlocked GSM device?

      Delete
    3. ER,yes. Use in any non-America Movil phone.

    4. My bad, Kilo3086 is right. Don't sell or give away the phone however, when the new owner tries to activate it, TracFone will send him a new SIM and kill yours.

    5. The best strategy is to move away from any involvement w/any America Movil owned "brand" It won't cost you more and it will save you time and aggravation.

    1. The rebate is for phones activated by 1/31. What are the chances HSN would get it delivered by, say 1/30?

    2. OP. Since I ordered one on Friday, it's still in Packaging status right now. "Estimated Delivery 3-7 Business Days - Standard Ground Shipping" is what's on my order.

      When I placed the order I seem to remember an estimated shipping date of 2/1. Guess I will find out.

      I orders one of the HSN specials back in November and it was delivered in two days to MD. However, it came from Woodbridge, VA which is buried by the Jan 23 blizzard. Best to call HSN for any shipping guestimates.

  4. Is this one LTE capable or only 3G. How about tethering?

    1. If "this one" is the LG Ultimate 2, it's a 3G non LTE phone. Tethering is blocked but there may be workarounds with root and/or a 3rd party app.

    2. Yes, the Ultimate 2 is "this one"
      Thanks.

  5. Any news about the T-mobile $25 plan? Supposed to be launched this week. Thanks!

    1. The plan changes are now live:
      - High speed data was increased from 1 to 3 GB on the $40 Simply Prepaid plan, 3 to 5 GB on the $50 plan and 8 to 10 GB on the $60 plan.
      - Simply Prepaid high speed data is no longer throttled to 8 Mbps
      - Simply Prepaid customers can now add calling to and roaming in Mexico and Canada for $5/month
      - Simply Prepaid now includes Music Unlimited, streaming music doesn't count against your data.
      - The new $25 unlimited talk and text plan is not called a Simply Prepaid plan but it does exist. You can find it on the T-Mobile Prepaid site under "Other Plans".

      Another less welcome change is that T-Mobile Prepaid SIMs purchased online come pre-activated on the $3/month pay as you go plan and can no longer be used to activate the $30 "Walmart" plan!

      The ZTE Avid Plus is now available for $154.99.

      Delete
    2. Wow, so is the only way to get the $30 "Walmart" plan in the future to buy a starter kit from Walmart?

      Delete
    3. No, just anywhere but T-Mobile. Unactivated SIM kits are also available from Amazon, BestBuy, eBay and Target.

      Delete
  6. Cricket gives you $100 discount when you bring non-AT&T numbers. For example, iPhone and Galaxy 6. I think Cricket's deal is very attractive because if I do port-in I just pay $399 for brand new Galaxy S6.

    1. And if you port in from anything Sprint or T-Mobile based, you will have the benefit of getting a network that is twice as good. No big change from Verizon other than price, though.

      Delete
    2. Unlocked S6 phones are only $50 more on ebay. Does cricket have Binge on? No thanks. I'll stick with T-mobile.

      Delete
    3. Binge On means censored content in the form of T-Mobile. It's a dubious scheme that censors and throttles video they don't want.

      You might want to stick with T-Mobile, though. They are committing a crime and scr*wing their customers with the "Binge On" scam, and you might see a class action settlement in the future.

      Not having the illegal "Binge On" censorship scheme is a great benefit to having Cricket. However, they illegally ban hotspot/tether.

  7. Dennis, I'm confused, so the Sims I ordered from T-Mobile yesterday will be pre activated on the$3 Plan?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Pre-activated... meaning the phone number is already assigned? Never heard anything like that. I ordered a couple of these 3 in 1 sim cards, thinking to use them soon. I could not find activation code. I did a online prepaid sim activation not long ago($30 plan).I used the kit that comes with a t-mobile PPD phone, which has a SIM card and an activation code. So this is really confusing now...

      Delete
    2. Yes the pre-aActivated SIMs come with a number assigned. You can ask T-Mobile to change the number, or port-in a number to replace the assigned one. You can also change the plan, but not to the $30 plan.

      Delete
  8. The $30 really isn't a big deal anymore. If it had unlimited or even 500 minutes maybe.

    1. Yes, and wally is discounting the $30 kits. Perhaps a new and improved "secret plan" is in our future?

      Delete
    2. Does someone else match or beat 5 GB LTE or HSPA+ (then unlimited 128Kbps) for $30? With tethering? Please share that info if so.

  9. Ebay: Verizon (or PagePlus) Samsung Galaxy S4 I545 LTE Android phone (new) $169.95 Free shipping.

  10. More high speed data for my T-Mobile $40/month prepaid plan. Time to upgrade my phone. I'm looking for a good 4g phone, 5 inch display max. Should I go with the unlocked Blu Life One or Huawei Snapto? I've never bought an unlocked phone before and not sure if it's a good idea. Or should I go with the tried and true made for T-Mobile Galaxy Grand Prime, Galaxy Core Prime or LG Leon?

  11. So are these Sims fine to use as replacement Sims?

    1. I don't know. I'm trying to get some answers about these SIMs fro T-Mobile.

    2. I tested one of the Sims(ordered about 10 days ago) and it is pre-activated as pay as you go $3/month plan. It comes with 30 minutes and/or texts and 0 balance. #BAL# checking indicates the sim or the rate plan will expire in mid Feb(I guess it's 30 days from when it was activated). Called customer service and the lady seems very clear about the pre-activation situation and I was told I can change rate plan or phone number or port-in a number. $30 plan is not available though. It's ridiculous that sims will expire in <30 days, considering the shipping delay. The package still says expiration date is 2018! I'm not ready to use the sims yet, so the money is wasted.

  20. I got the AT&T LG Optimus G Pad 7.0 LTE refurbished Android tablet from Expansys. AT&T would not unlock it from a request on their non-customer unlock page, saying that I "haven't fulfilled my service contract".

    However, a $4 unlock code on eBay worked just fine.

    Now I hope I can root it so I can get rid of the AT&T crapware. Even if I can't do that it seems a good deal for $70. Casual games, web browsing, and eBooks. This will have plenty of power for what I plan to use it for.
