    1. I don't think AT&T's website will let you get to checkout without putting in some airtime. But you might be able to remove the airtime at the checkout page.

      However, I find that AT&T's website often has a mind of its own, so YMMV.

    2. When you buy a prepaid phone or SIM from the AT&T site you are forced to chose a plan. An airtime card for the plan you choose gets added to the your cart but you can remove the card at checkout.

  3. Where is the texting dictionary on this page? YMMV?

    I see a lot less comments here this week. I have seen an ad pop-up when one moves mouse arrow toward a top corner to back out.....is this malware?

    1. "Your Mileage May Vary" :)

      I've seen pop ups on the site but they all have a prominent X to close button. I haven't seen a pop up that moves. Do you recall what it was advertising?

      Delete
    2. I thought clicking on the prominent X of a pop-up ad to close opens one up to the malware. I normally back out of the screen the pop-up occurs on.
      The one here has about 8 or 9 categories related to phones/plans to click on, but no company name appears on pop-up. It appears on first article being read on this site. Normally never see any pop-ups here, but it's been a regular occurrence here for past month or so.

      Sorry, Mr. Huffy-3-Speed-Is-As-Good-As-A-Lexus, people actually buy the much better Samsung and Apple phones not because they are "fanboys", but because the phones are a lot better.

  8. Did the 5 unlimited line promotion for $100 on Boost end already?

    Are the in store free phones on Boost still ending on 11/?

    1. 5 lines for $100 ends Nov 30. The free phones for switchers offer is due to end Nov. 2, but I suspect it will be extended.

  9. BLU S1 on sale at Amazon for $130, black only. Gold still $180. Call Sprint for a free SIM card or order it through your local Sprintvrepair center or corporate store. These are nice phones, between entry and mid-range. They perform well. Cons are speaker volume and screen that is half-HD, not sharp and vivid much of the time. Voice commands, fingerprint sensor and FM radio are pluses.

  10. This might be the last day to order a free “year” of Sprint Unlimitrd BYO postpaid service. Not clear from promo page. ~11 months service if you order today.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sprint extended the Free Year BYO Unlimited offer. Sign up now and get free Unlimited postpaid service through 1/31/19. Just pay about $3/month in taxes. Sprint also fixed the BLU eligible phone to read S1/VIVO S instead of VIVO S (no such phone; only the S1 works on Sprint).

  11. Do at&t prepaid smartphones require a higher service level? I currently have my old landline on an at&t flip phone. Costs me about $25 for 3 or 4 months service. I'm tempted by the iPhone SE ... could I just move the sim over?

    The goal would be to have an unlocked IPhone after six months.

    PS: google voice still rejects my phone number for porting. might eventually use Fi for one month to get it into voice

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can't use Fi unless you buy a compatible phone or borrow a MEID to activate service. You need an AT&T smartphone plan to use your SE. Will cost you $150 minimum, and you could sell your SE and buy an unlocked one for less than that. You can also forget about unlocking and use FreedomPop LTE free plan on your SE. You can port your phone number in for $10 I think. Make sure you sign up for the $1.99 optional service so you can call CS if you have problems the first month. Then you can cancel the option if you want. If this is a hassle, just sign up for the Red Pocket special for $52/year. 100/100/500/mo. Should work since you have iMessage service that only uses mobile data (when off WiFi) for iPhone messages.

    2. at&t prepaid phones can be used on gophone, cricket, and any mvno using at&t towers. you can even tracfone it if you get an at&t tower sim card from them.

      Delete
    3. Anon at 10:39: thanks for the info.

      1. My son has a Nexus 6 that I could potentially use for 15 minutes to setup Fi.

      2. I don't have an iPhone currently or ever. I slightly want one (TMO wifi calling, IOS, I have other Apple gear and generally like it). I started looking at 5c's earlier this year (~$80 used), it rapidly became apparent that those were becoming obsolete, and 5s's (~$100) were needed for latest IOS. Then I saw I could get a Gophone SE for $140. But I would want to use it on TMO long term, so it needs to be unlocked. If I need to put a $35 smartphone plan on it for six months, it isn't worth it to me.

      3. I've been reading about Freedom Pop for at least five years. Based on my understanding of their business practices I won't do business with them. Too much hassle for me. (need to closely monitor account to make sure they aren't cramming things) Sounds like it works for you, good.

      4. You mention an unlocked SE for less than $150, you are talking a used one right? Again, too much hassle for me. Maybe also 16GB?

      5. I'm currently using Teltik/TMO for $23 per month. My G4 Play doesn't support wifi calling, would like to have that option. I'll wait until more 600MHz phones are released.

    4. I had a smartphone on AT&T Prepaid earlier this year, and the pay as you go plan appeared as an available option for smartphones (without data; only voice, SMS, and things that work over wifi will work).

      Regarding Google Voice, it's possible the number is in an area that isn't serviced by the company they use to manage phone numbers, but that's just a guess.

      The assessment of FreedomPop is correct as I have used them before. Also, it's not AT&T Prepaid so my understanding is service on FreedomPop will not count towards unlocking an AT&T Prepaid-locked phone.

      Also remember you can get a new and unlocked phone by buying one outright at full price, but you probably knew that.

    5. Jason, thanks for info (even though it is conflicting info, I will try to figure out who is correct)

      That was my thought, could I just use my flipphone AT&T Prepaid sim (at about $7/mo) in the SE for six months, and get it unlocked? Or do you have to buy the expensive smartphone plan times six months (over $200).

      I know I can buy the SE directly from Apple for $350. I just keep looking for better deals ... a few months back I could get it from Cricket for $190, and get it unlocked with one month of their premium service, so total cost was about $250. I should probably just listen to my wife ("you have too many phones already!") and sit on my hands. Somebody else can pump up the American economy. :-)

      RE Google Voice: the weird thing is that 3 or 4 years ago, I made it past that screen to port my number. So at least at that time, it was serviced. I just couldn't decide to spend the $20 porting fee at that time. If only I would have known it wouldn't work later, I would have jumped on it. Furthermore, last I checked, my number would port into Google FI. So do they use a different company for FI vs Voice?

  14. Micro Center beats Amazon and eBay prices on the LeEco Le S3 X522 32GB GSM by $8.01 at $129.99 but you will probably pay sales tax, which may wipe out most of the savings.
    You are still better off with the Deal of the Week, Moto G4+. LeEco S3 is faster, has 16 MP camera and aluminum body, but the camera doesn't take very good pictures; the UI is clumsy; and it doesn't work on CDMA networks.

  15. HTC U11 life launched today on T-Mobile. Very nice mid-range phone, similar specs as Moto X4. Sells for $300, $50 less than expected. This is a better buy than the Moto X4 IMO. Squeezable sides for quick access to functions.

    1. To get the $300 price you need to pass a credit check, enroll in an EIP (equipment installment plan) and buy a $25! SIM. In addition a "$20 upgrade support charge may be required". I think you would be better off buying the phone unlocked from HTS for $349.

      Delete
    2. You can pick the "Pay In Full" option under "Payment Options" menu if you don't want to sign up for EIP. A new customer does not pay the $20 upgrade charge. An unlocked phone does make sense if you don't want to use T-Mobile, or you have your own T-Mobile SIM card.
