Updated 10/5: Prepaid Phones on Sale This Week: Oct 1 - Oct 7

TracFone Samsung Galaxy Luna Pro
Welcome to the latest edition of Prepaid Phone News' Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week feature. Here are the best current deals on prepaid and unlocked phones that I've been able to find online and in stores.

This week's Deal of the Week is the TracFone Samsung Galaxy Luna Pro (Verizon) J327VL 16 GB LTE Android phone with 1200 minutes, texts and MBs of data, one year of service, case and car charger for $89.95 with free shipping from HSN.

This is a great deal if you use TracFone. The airtime and year of service are worth over $100 and the Galaxy Luna Pro, which lists for $129.99, is TracFone's best entry level Android phone. It's TracFone's version of the 2017 Samsung Galaxy J3. It operates on the Verizon network, runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has a Snapdragon 425 SOC, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB internal memory (10 GB usable), a 5 inch 720x1280px screen, SD card slot and removable 2600 mAh battery. There's a 5MP main camera with LED flash and autofocus and a 2 MP rear camera.

Be aware that the Sky Luna Pro is one of TracFone's newer "smartphone airtime only" phones.  That means it does not get triple minutes, texts and data when a legacy TracFone minutes card is added. This is mainly a concern for people who typically spend less than  $8.34/month on TracFone airtime by adding either a $19.99 60 (180 tripled) minute card every 90 days ($6.33/month) or a $99.99 400 (1200 tripled) minute card every 365 days ($8.34/month). The Smartphone-only card with the lowest cost per month of service is the $125 1500 minute 365 day card ($10.42/month). For heavier users, Smartphone-Only card pricing is comparable to, and in some cases less expensive, than triple minutes airtime. For more information about TracFone pricing see my Prepaid Operator Profile: TracFone post.

  1. Best Buy has your pick of the week for $69.99. I don't need airtime/days so it caught my interest. Got it price matched at Target to take advantage of their 30 day return policy (BB policy is 2 weeks).

  6. target has htc 550 for $59, and best buy will match price.
    can get it unlocked onlinbe for $2.
    unlike unlocking a moto g4 play or e4 on verizon pp, this phone works on at&t or t- mobile or their mvno partners with no issues.
    a little bit more money , but worth the lack of bands on the verizon phones for gsm use, unless you unlock verizon pp phones for use on their mvno. wonder if you can even do that, with their whitlisting protocall?

  8. Am considering buying a Verizon Prepaid Moto E4 for $39 at WalMart and then getting the eBay $2 unlock so I can use the phone on GSM networks if I wish. I can't find anywhere that lists the cellular bands the phone would then get for AT&T, 2,4,5,17? Anybody know for sure if it is 100% compatible with AT&T including band 17 after the $2 eBay unlock?

    ReplyDelete

    1. AFAIK, the Verizon PP E4 supports the same bands as the unlocked model, including AT&T's LTE bands 2,4,5 and 12/17. I think I saw some posts on HoFo from users confirming they got LTE on AT&T and/or T-Mobile.

    2. I'm getting LTE with FreedomPop SIM. Sprint accepts the E4 Moto for the free, Unlimited Bring Your Own Plan.

  9. I have contacted several Boost dealers in my area to take advantage of a good port in promotion. They all want a $25 fee per line. Is this fee from Boost corporate or just the dealers acting independently?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Boost allows dealers to charge activation fees. The fee stays with the dealer, it's not shared with Boost. You could try negotiating. Accessories like cases and earphones are high margin items, a dealer my reduce the fee if you agree to buy an accessory.

  10. Thank you Dennis. That's what I thought. Do you know where I can find a promo code for Boost's website?

    1. I don't know of any current Boost promo codes. When I do have one, I include in the Boost section of the weekly deals post.

  12. If you buy a Pixel 2 or 2 Plus and sign up for a new line of Tmo One or Simple Choice Unlimited, Tmo will send you a prepaid MasterCard loaded with $325. Half the price of a Pixel 2.

  13. i want to urge caution for readers of this column. i read about people who want to buy the moto e4 , verizon prepaid, and unlock it for $2 and use with gsm. i had a moto g4 play verizon pp phone that was given to me. i had it unlocked, but it would not work on either gsm network. i put my verizon/tracfone sim card in it. it worked perfectly for 6 hours last night. i forgot to shut it off overnight. today, it did not work at all on tracfone. when i removed the tracfone sim, it would not log into my home wifi also. i tried to rest the phone, but it won't do that either.
    my personal data is sill on it , buy i can't reset it or use it with any network. evidently, verizon went in and bricked the phone. i could have used it on my wifi as a tablet, but not anymore.
    so i would suggest that anyone thinking about unlocking a verizon/sprint/ cdma prepaid phone better thnk twice about using it on a cdma mvno sim. it seems that verizon and/or sprint can easily brick the phone, even if you have it unlocked.
    good thing i am only out $2. i just wish i could rest the phone to erase my personal data. anyone have an idesa/suggestions as to how to do that? i tried the hard reset using power and vol down but that just loops and doesn't work.

    1. You mention using Tracfone SIMs, what happens when you insert the Verizon Prepaid SIM that came with the G4 Play?

      Also, the possibility of getting a bad unit or hit by randsomware/malware exceeds the likelihood the phone was bricked by the carrier.

    2. i tried the verizon sim but it makes no difference. i can't reset it or log into home wifi with it. i did not visit any site with malware. the phone worked perfectly before i went to sleep and was bricked when i woke up.
      i dumped verizon 6 years ago over their ripoff prices for both phones and data. btw, the tracfone sim works perfectly in their phone and in a factory unlocked moto g5 plus. so, it was verizon who bricked the phone!

      Delete
    3. What makes you think Verizon bricked the phone? Never heard of that happening before and I doubt it's even possible. It sounds like your phone has a hardware issue. Contact Motorola or the store where you bought the phone for a warranty replacement or repair.
