  1. I thought eBay couldn't even unlock theses unless the 6 month at&t thing was fulfilled, contradictory info abounds.

    1. As far as I know, six months service is required for AT&T Prepaid unlocks 1f:
      1) You want AT&T to unlock the phone for free
      or
      2) you want to unlock an iPhone.

      iPhone unlocks go through Apple which confirms the unlock with AT&T.

      ZTE Android unlocks are by code entry, as long as the code is correct the phone will unlock, there's no server involved, it's all done on the phone.

      This eBay seller eBay seller of $1.79 codes advertises "codes available for ZTE Cell phones. (In Contract, Out of Contract, Pre-Paid, New , Old All ZTE models Supported).

      As always, YMMV.

    2. Hey Dennis, I own a few boost mobile stores, WE have the refurbished iphone 6 at our stores for $49.99 until november 2.

      Delete
    3. $49.99 for everyone, including current users? Or only for new activations or only for port-ins?

  2. The iphone 6 sold at AT&T does that come with a 45 refill card or is it the phone plus 45 dollar first month service credit.?

    1. go to your local at&t cell phone store and tell them you are already on at&t prepaid and want to switch your sim to the iphone6 that want to buy and that you are still in the middle of the month before you need a new refill. otherwise, expect them to say you have to buy the iphone and the refill card. so that's $199.99 for the iphone6 plus the $45 refill card equals $244.99 -- the reasoning is if you're buying it from AT&T Prepaid they do want you to buy the airtime from them anyways right now. but ask anyways if can get the iphone if you already on at&t prepaid and don't need the refill yet. although depending on who you talk to, expect them to say you have to buy the $45 refill also because you are eventually going to need it anyways.

    1. What sort of problem are you seeing with the ads?

      Delete
    2. I see nasty popup ads here, and only here. Popup ads are a form of malware... You can't blame people for using ad blockers.

      Delete
    3. Close the add.. or use firefox to block all adds..

      Delete
    4. I re-enabled Adblock in Chrome and the noxious popup malware is gone (unfortunately, along with the rest of the ads, which were non-obnoxious)

    5. Advertising has long since been malicious, which is why ad blockers are a must.

      It'd be better if there was a law against such obtrusive ads, so that their size and function were limited to up to two relatively small banners or one mid-size banner on any given page, without any embedded javascript or malware to speak of.

      But without regulating online advertising, which is usually just a cover for malware distribution, all you can do is take a scorched earth approach at the expense of the sites you view.

      On a related note, it's really unfortunate that everyone only cares about fake news and hate speech instead of real "net problems" like this.

      The lack of trust between visitors and ad-supported content providers resulting from poor advertising implementations, which results in the proliferation of defensive ad-blocking, is a much bigger problem that presumably hurts the potential revenue streams of even legitimate news blogs.

    6. Web sites cost money to operate and writers like to get paid. What do you propose to replace advertising?

      Delete
    7. The first things that come to mind are selling sponsored social media posts, as well as serving content through a freemium app with in-app advertising gateways.

      Additionally, an app could notify users about new posts, as well as replies to comments they've posted.

      That, and the play store offers an oppoetunity for greater exposure if the PPN app ever shows up as a recommendation to people who've never heard of the site.

      Honestly, mobile advertising seems to be the most obvious direction to go in if you're looking for additional revenue.

      The only question is whether it offsets the cost of developing and maintaining an app.

  6. The AT&T Ascend XT at Walmart has an SD625 and a 6-inch screen for $10 more than the Blade Spark. I don't see how the ZTE is a better deal.

    1. It has a 617, not the power efficient 625.

    1. It's a safe bet that Cricket will have a drastic reduction on the Galaxy S8 for "Black Friday".

      But that is just a guess...

  8. Dennis, I searched but can not seem to find if the iphone 6 ATT prepaid can used on freedompop without any fuss?

    1. The FreedomPop AT&T LTE should work on an AT&T Prepaid iPhone. Follow the instructions that come with the SIM to download the FP network profile.

  9. Thanks. I think I saw you mentioned somewhere that all ATT prepaid phones work with freedompop but can't find it.

  10. Dennis, do you have any idea what iOS version the iPhone se's come with? IOS 10.1 - 10.2.1 would be awesome. I'm specifically asking about the total wireless one.

    1. I don't know. The phone will have whatever iOS version was current when the phone was manufactured, so probably an older version.

  11. FreedomPop has lowered the LTE SIM price to 1c here:

  12. Attn SIM SWAPPERS: I've been on verizon MVNOs for a couple years now and want to share some experiences with sim swapping to use verizon prepaid phone sets on verizon MVNO's. ITS RISKY. It works often, but it has caused me problems a couple of times. My latest problem popped up today when my current mvno BOOM mobile suddenly informed me I could no longer use my verizon PP moto G4 Play because the randsom hadn't been paid. If you are a regular here at PPPN, you will all know about this randsom, but if not, just search and read as its been discussed often. Apparently, some software system change over at BOOM triggered an IMEI check and red flagged my account. BUSTED! I've had two other bad experiences SIM swapping both with tracfone where airtime vanished unexplained. I now chalk up both of those losses to my sim swapping. Verizon has a pretty tight hold on their pre paid sets despite the very questionable legality of that business practice, imo, and many others. Not so coincidentally, one of those losses was again with that $30 black friday Moto G4 Play, which has now cost me way more in losses than the great bait-and-suck $30 price tag. Buyer beware.

    1. How long were you able to be on BOOM with a Verizon PP moto G4 Play? I SIM-swapped back in April, from Page Plus to Red Pocket on a Verizon PP moto G4 play and am wondering if/when I will get busted, too...

  13. PPPN is my favorite such site- thanks to Dennis! But, I must admit this game isn't so much fun lately. I'll explain. A year ago, I was having fun with my RingPlus freebies, and my Freedompop freebies, as well as dabbling with some Tmobile and tracfone verizon options. My needs started steering me towards a verizon mvno for the rural coverage when I really needed it most, and at the same time, ringplus was sinking fast. After being one of the many to get burned (literally robbed) by tracfone slim, I vowed never again, so I gave BOOM a try mostly because they were the ONLY ones at the time to include verizon roaming! That was quick to dry up as well and BOOM did away with the roaming quietly. I still have a freedompop global sim (pair) that saved my butt this summer when traveling and in a pinch, but it will never work as a primary line(s) for me, at least not right now- and further, I cannot recommend freedompop to anyone unless they know what they are getting into and have a high attention to detail so they don't get stung with suprises charges popping up.

    Further, ATT has closed their loophole unlocking policy (though its still insainly cheap and easy to buy an unlock code if you're willing to deal with ebay); and Verizon SIM swapping is catching up with me- also not what it use to be- as they are working to slam that "loophole" shut.

    SO- where's the fun? Maybe I've just lost the stomach for it; maybe it getting harder; maybe all the savings I thought I was getting haven't been fully realized for some of these reasons; maybe its not that interesting or exciting for us deal-hunters and tinkers.

    I'll probably be re-energized some for the much anticipated by-far-best-deals-of-the-year black friday specials. we'll see I guess.

    1. Yes, the excitement is gone. But what I really fear is the onset of despair if the Sprint/T-Mobile merger is approved.

    2. The prepaid market's already in despair, and it has nothing to do with mergers.

      Good deals like Ringplus died while Sprint speeds and coverage nosedived.

      Device selections were hit as unlocking loopholes were closed.

      AT&T Prepaid and Cricket implemented unlimited plans without any corresponding network upgrades, which led to speed and coverage decay in congested areas.

      Increasing app bloat has severely devalued budget Verizon/Total Wireless devices with 16gb of storage and 2015-tier specs, all while they continue burdening potential customers with their disgusting lack of affordable lower-mid-range 3/32 volte-capable devices.

      And finally, the number of worthwhile carriers left can be counted on one hand.

      Ultimately, the real problems are anti-competitive practices and a lack of universal devices, the latter of which would give carriers an incentive to keep their networks up to par.

  14. question: could one purchase a handfull of Verizon's SIM preloaded with $45 airtime $24.99, and use one per month? and port number each time? or would you need to get new number each time? any way to purchase locally, or is it online only deal? thx!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The preloaded SIMs are only available from the Verizon site. The purpose of preloaded SIMs is attracting new customers, not providing discounted service to existing customers. Verizon might have some checks in place to block people from activating a new discounted SIM every month.

      Moving your number from one Verizon SIM to another is a SIM change not a number port. I don't know if Verizon would allow you would you switch you number one one discounted preloaded SIM to another.

      They might also eventually block you from ordering more SIMs.

      Try it and let us know how it works out.
