  1. I know with TMO it's cheaper to go with MintSIM. Perhaps the Verizon plan may be worth it.

  3. Does it have 2g after the 2 gigs are used up?

    1. Since it says unlimited data I would have to say it does.

    2. Nope. Hard caped.

    3. YES, Unlimited
      Data (2GB LTE)

    4. According to their ad, you get UNLIMITED data, 2GB at LTE speed, and after that at either 2G or 3G, depends on the carrier.

      Delete
    5. It's always what they call 2G which means uselessly slow data speeds. The only real unlimited data plans are the ones with unlimited high speed data. 2GB is all you get the rest is useless.

  4. I wouldn't pay a year up front to any MVNO, no matter how big they are or how long they have been in biz, the most I'll risk is 2 months on their cheapet plan.

    1. 10 months in my 12 month prepaid Red Pocket Ebay plan. No complaints. There are a lot more things riskier than paying a year up front. Driving is even more riskier.

      Delete
    2. I agree with this sentiment. Too many MVNOs disappear over night and fold up, leaving their users stranded and scrambling for alternatives. The price is great, but I'll pay a few dollars more per month and not be on the hook for an extended period of time when they do fold. And they will...they all do, eventually.

      Delete
    3. Plus they've been around for years. Sounds like it's worth the risk if the plan fits one's need and is significantly cheaper than other options.

      Delete
    4. Sad that one has to look at it in terms of risk, which is a de facto admission of MVNO instability. Desperate move, just generating pennies to stay alive.

    5. I can run Spotify, swappa, fantasy football, and most of my games on 2G (≠ useless)

    6. prepaid mintsim for a year 13 dollars a month 2gb. so far so good.

  5. Which of the four carrier will give you unlimited 3g when 4g runs out?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. AFAIK, none of them, although Sprint phones display 3g when they are connected to 2G 1xRTT. Maybe that's what Anonymous is thinking of

      Delete
    2. Dennis,Ultra Mobile,that runs on T-Mobile, is giving unlimited 3G, after the LTE allotment has been used, on all their multi-month plans.Having said that, I don't know what their 3G speed is.

      Delete
    3. I'm aware of Ultra's $19 multi-month plan having unlimited 3G. I think Excited Wirelesser was asking which of the four Red Pocket networks has unlimited data and the answer is none of them.

      Delete
  6. Second paragraph, first sentence ought to read, Red Pocket not "Red Mobile."

  7. I wouldn't mind paying for a year in advance. I don't think the worry with RP is them going out of business, I think the worry would be better deal. We are in the midst of data getting cheaper and cheaper. In a few months 2gb for $15 per month could be the norm. But the trend is unlimited data at throttle speed of 3mb.

    1. There will always be a better deal down the road. No way to live just to keep worrying about it. I bought a moto g5 plus this past month and there was a better deal by like $20 bucks later. It is all about time-value of money.

      Delete
    2. What "trend" is that? Cricket's the only one I'm aware of doing that. I'd love a cheap unlimited, never/rarely throttled plan at that speed (Cricket fails the "cheap" test).

      Delete
    3. There is a trend across the industry to raise ARPU by selling plans with "unlimited" high speed data, often throttled in some way or another, to customers on cheaper capped data plans. The throttling takes various forms including throttling everything to 3, 5 or 8 mbps, or throttling only video streaming or only hotspot.

      Average data prices are also declining, driven by competition, the increased efficiency of newer data transports like LTE and soon 5G.

      Delete
    4. While it is true that average data prices are slowly declining, "data quality" appears to have diminished. So overall value has actually decreased. I would prefer reasonably priced, larger, "net neutrality neutral" data buckets like those offered outside of the US.

    6. Thanks for the link. Interesting read, as if written by Pai himself. Too bad the article fails to address the "data quality" issue in its overly optimistic assessment of the level of competition that exists between mobile and fixed data providers.

      Delete
    7. I saw that post and while I agree that mobile data prices are falling, I think the 1.80/GB price is bogus. There are no $1.80 1 GB or $18 10 GB data plans available from any US mobile operators. The only way you can get close to $1.80/GB is by using 33 GB every month on a $60 "unlimited" plan. That's unrealistic as the average US mobile subscriber uses less than 10 GB a month and pays about $50/month for a cost of over $5/GB.

      Delete
    8. ... "data quality" appears to have diminished"

      This is probably true of Sprint, which appeared to actually lose coverage after the Nextel debacle, but data quality on T-Mobile as gotten hugely better. Because "no data" is the worst data quality of all, and the areas with no data on T-Mobile are rapidly dwindling.

      Seems that AT&T and Verizon are standing still, relatively.

      Delete
  8. But what if I suddenly get hit by Hurricane X, Y or Z and suddenly need 4 or 5 GB?

    Honestly, static data amounts are far too restrictive.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Easy, buy a plan that comes with 4~5 Gb until it's not needed anymore. (Ever heard of preplanning or redundant systems?)

  10. Do a little research to find out red pocket and Ultra Mobile aren't going anywhere. As for Mint...they are not Ultra. Won't go there yet. I'm into my 2nd year of Ultra. Ported out & then back. PTel, bluegreen, etc. Tiny companies don't get me phone business. If they are making a profit. Have gobbs of paying customers (unlike ringplus) there is no reason for them to fold. The money I have saved being an annual-plan guy. Won't go back.

    1. "As for Mint...they are not Ultra."

      What does this mean? MintSIM is an Ultra product.

  11. Opinions expressed in the comments section do not always reflect the real deals.
    Wishes and "they should" are not adding much to this discussion. And reading is fundamental and required of the stories posted on this web.

  12. what's the deal with so many touting mintsim? I get that it's dirt cheap, but there's a reason for that. it runs on tea mobile, which has zero coverage in large swaths of this country. which makes it practically useless for any one living outside the top metro areas.

    you can't compare that offering to Red Pocket here which uses the Verizon network! that's like comparing a Fiat to a Bentley. There is no comparison.

    3. This is a big country. 1/3 missing is a big "gotcha". I don't care how cheap Mint is when it doesn't work where I need it to. Again, there's a reason it's so "cheap".

    4. Mint gets terrible reviews for where it does work, too.

  13. $249 for a year of service, less than the price of a new Moto G5 Plus and other great midrange/budget options to pair it with...

    ...but some of ya'll have commitment issues. "What if OMG Mobile comes out with a plan that's **$248** dollars a year, I COULD MISS OUT" LOL

    1. FWIW, I'm in the middle of my 2nd year with Red Pocket prepaid, and I couldn't be happier. *Great* price, good customer service (via email anyway; I've never tried to call), zero problems.

  14. Hi everybody, I'm currently a total wireless customer, and considering I use less than 2 gigs of data a month, does anybody know the redpocket data download speed ? It was nice that total (tracfone) freed up their data and bumped it from throttled 5mps to 20+mps. Thanks in advance (TIA)

    1. Data speeds on Red Pocket Verizon are capped at 5 mbps. Data on Red Pocket AT&T, T-Mobile or speed is full speed.

  15. I'm still waiting for a verizon MVNO with a straight up 20 dollar plan and 1 gb of data without having to buy a year in advance. ROK had it for a few months untill either all the other MVNO's cried to verizon about the low price and they were forced to reduce the data to 500 mb on their 20 dollar plan.
