Red Pocket Mobile Now Selling Discounted Plans on Amazon

Multi-carrier MVNO Red Pocket Mobile has been selling discounted annual plans on eBay since 2015. Recently, Red Pocket  began offering similar plans through Amazon.com. Single month, six month and annual plans are available and prices are considerably lower than those of similar plans sold by Red Pocket on eBay.

The new Red Pocket Amazon plans include unlimited voice and messaging and either 1 GB or 3 GB of data.  Prices are:

  • 1 GB: $25.50 for a single month, $127.50 for six months ($21.25/month), $204.00 for 12 months ($17.00/month).
  • 3 GB: $29.75 for a single month, $153.00 for six months ($25.50/month), $255.00 for 12 months ($21.50/month).

These prices appear to be limited time promotions and are much lower than what Red Pocket is charging for similar plans on eBay. For example, Tte eBay 1 GB plan with unlimited talk and text costs $300 per year ($25/month). That's $96 more than the Amazon equivalent. Red Pocket doesn't offer a 3 GB plan on eBay but they do have a 4 GB plan for $540 ($45/month), more than double the price off the eBay plan. Red Pocket does offer lower cost plans on eBay with less data and limited voice minutes and messages. See out Red Pocket prepaid operator profile for a complete listing of all the different Red Pocket plans available on Amazon, eBay, the Red Pocket website and at Red Pocket dealers.

The Red Pocket Amazon plans are available on you choice of  AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile or Sprint. The plan prices include a SIM kit with SIMs for AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. Sprint SIMs are not included, but on Sprint SIMs a re reusable and are supposed to stay with the phone, so if you have a Sprint phone you should already have a SIM. Service is on the native network of the carrier chosen at activation, there's no roaming. Data is hard capped at 1 GB or 3 GB, unlimited throttled data is not available.

  1. Mint Sim 2GB for 15 a month for Tmo coverage is a little better price wise, but if you want 3GB you can get the preloaded sim off ebay for about the same amount with H20 and the ATT network.

    1. Preloaded means new number every time.

    2. New number every time is easily dealt with via Google Voice. Mildly tedious on an every month basis, but so are dealing with other monthly tasks. If you need AT&T service for the lowest price possible, then it's worth it.

    3. Google voice VOIP? Get me some real minutes. Next

    4. Google Voice calls use cellular voice, not VoIP.

      You might be thinking of Hangouts which lets you make and receive VoIP calls using your Google Voice number.

  2. Capitalism works. Small carrier's are lowering their monthly price to earn your business. I have purchased 1GB Annual plan sim from Amazon on July 25 and it works great on AT&T's network. AT&T charge $30 per month while this guys charge $17 per month. I'm saving 42% on my wireless bill. Thanks RedPocket!

    1. As long as native only At&t works for you. No roaming, deprioitized service. Tried it, no go for me, glad I didn't buy more than one mo.

  3. Any Sprint phone I've purchased used on eBay, never come with a sim, I think the big sellers automatically discard the sims, or they're discarded when traded in or whatever. I avoid them just because of this, on that note, does anybody know how TracFone brands handle byop LTE Sprint sims, same as red pocket?

  4. The problem with prepaid (as opposed to paygo) is that it's inadequate if your usage varies.

    What if 3GB turns out to not be enough?

    I'd rather have Tracfone over something so inflexible, especially since RP's data allotments are only half what they should be in 2017.

    1. It's a good average and perfectly adequate for millions.

    2. 1-3GB plans are very popular because of the cost. People can adjust their usage to fall within the limit. There are many many people who dont need or want unlimited plans and can adjust easily.

      Delete
    3. $21 for 3GB on any network? Please find me a better deal

      Delete
    4. About $15/mo for 2GB or $25/mo for 10GB on MintSIM.

      Delete
    5. "1-3GB plans are very popular because of the cost. People can adjust their usage to fall within the limit. There are many many people who dont need or want unlimited plans and can adjust easily."

      Do you have any stats on this ?

      Delete
    6. MintSIM only t-mobile? Next

      Delete
    7. "Do you have any stats on this ?" have any stats to prove otherwise?

      Delete
    8. So it is clear that the the "1-3GB plans are very popular because of the cost" guy is making it up.

      Delete
    9. I don't think these 1-3GB plans are a wise choice today. If your needs are high seems best to use unlimited, but if your needs are low, paygo is a better value. There is no longer a need to confine yourself to 1-3GB at these prices.

      Delete
    10. Sometimes I just sit back and laugh at the petty fights in these forums. Better than a soap.

    11. "if your needs are low, paygo is a better value. There is no longer a need to confine yourself to 1-3GB at these prices."

      How can pay as you go save me money? Im currently on Rok $20.00 plan with unlimited talk and text and 1GB. My average usage is 2500 minutes, 2000 text and 500MB data.

      Can you give me an example on a company where pay as you go can save me more than this? Im genuinely curious.

      Delete
    12. That is not low use/need.
      A few 100 to under 1000 min. a YEAR & a few hundred MMS a year & a few GB a year is low use / need. Yes, there are people who use this or less, I manage quite a few.

      Delete
    13. Yeah I figured. Unlimited T/T is my best option with a little data every month. Ive shopped around myself.

      Delete
  5. If I buy it now and activate it in 6 months time, do you think i will still work?

    1. I don't see why not but I'd confirm that with Red Pocket/Amazon to be sure.

      Delete
  6. Dennis, do we have confirmation from Red Pocket that this is indeed them selling these plans? I doubt they'd link to Amazon from their website, but there must be some other way to confirm it's indeed them...

    1. The plans are "Sold by RedPocket and Fulfilled by Amazon." If there was a third party involved Amazon would say so. Plus Amazon stands behind Fulfilled by Amazon purchases.

      Delete
  7. Hi Dennis, does RedPocket throttle the data speed like Cricket? Is tethering allowed? Do the charges include taxes and fees?
    Thanks.

  8. RP advertises "glyde" as a plce to purchase phones but anyone have another place that might not have inflated prices for used handsets???

    I wouldn't mind signing up for a plan they offer Ebay but buying a phone that might or might not work on RP is holding me back.
    RP willl throw in a phone on some of their plans but the phone is a flip phone and I'm more inclined to get a decent smartphone for a decent price.
    Open to any suggestions ??? Thanks in advance.....

    1. There are lots of places beside Glyde to buy phones; eBay, Swappa and Amazon to name a few. See my regular "Prepaid Phones on Sale This Week..." posts for current deals.

      AT&T Prepaid (aka GoPhones) are sold at cheap subsidized prices and work on Red Pocket AT&T.

      Delete
    2. Glyde: Competitive prices. Easy returns. Credit card protection. Slow to receive phone, since the box is shipped to the seller after you buy (dealers ship faster). No pictures or detailed description of actual phones.
      Swappa: Pictures and detailed description of actual phones. Swappa has structured info for seller to fill out for each ad. Seller feedback ratings. Every phone MEID/IMEI is checked before seller can place their ad. PayPal buyer protection, plus Swappa staff assistance. Swappa staff tries to delete all pictures and listing of phone MEIDs. No damaged or junk phones are supposed to be advertised (unlike eBay and Amazon). Swappa has the 'Boneyard' that advertises damaged and junk phones - sellers and buyers paid no fees there the last time I checked (other than PayPal).
      eBay: Big choice of phones and prices. Seller feedback info, but it's not as useful as Swappa's since it includes seller's eBay feedback as a buyer as well. Damaged and junk phones can be advertised sold, and buyers don't have to post actual pictures. No pre-ad check of MEID by eBay. Sellers often post the MEID, which can be stolen and cloned, potentially blocking use of the phone you buy. eBay and PayPal buyer protection.
      Amazon: Similar to eBay. Many affiliated dealer ads lack both detailed pictures AND any description other than new or used, make, model and sometimes the color.

  9. Red Pocket gold plan on ebay is now $179 down from $229. (1000min calling/unlimited txt/1GB data). Seems like the new amazon deals are pushing the ebay ones down.
