Red Pocket Mobile has added new 90 day and one year unlimited talk and text plans. The new plans are only available through RedPocket's eBay Store.
The new plans are:
- Unlimited Talk and Text and 1 GB/month of high speed data for $329 per year or $99 for 90 days.
- Unlimited Talk and Text and 4 GB/month of high speed data for $660 per year or $180 for 90 days.
- $199/year for 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 1000 MB of data (first 500 MB at high speeds, the rest at 64 Kbps).
- $229/year for 1000 minutes, unlimited texts and 1000 MB of data (first 500 MB at high speeds, the rest at 64 Kbps).
Plan prices include a SIM kit containing SIMs in all three sizes for the AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon networks. The users can choose whichever SIM they prefer and is compatible with their phone. Red Pocket also offers Sprint based service, but the kits do not include a Sprint SIM. Sprint SIMs are resusable and are supposed to stay with the phone they came with. RedPocket says they will send Sprint network SIMs on request to users who need them.
The monthly price of the new umlimited talk and text plans is $27.42 for the 1 GB plan when purchased for a year or $33/month when purchased for 90 days. The 4 GB plan is $55/month for the annual plan or $60/month for the 90 day one. Those are decent but not great prices. Similar, and in some cases better, deals are available from other operators without the need for a multi-month commitment. Here are some examples of competitive unlimited talk and text plans with 1 or 4 GB or more of data that are close to or better than the new RedPocket offers:
- On AT&T: Pure TalkUSA 1 GB $29, Cricket 5 GB $50, GoPhone 6 GB $60.
- On Verizon: Total Wireless $35 5 GB.
- On T-Mobile: MetroPCS 1 GB $30, 5 GB $50.
- On Sprint: Boost 2 GB $35, 5 GB $45.
