Updated 5/30: Prepaid Phones on Sale This Week: May 27 - June 2

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 found online and in stores.

This week's Deal of the Week is the Straight Talk iPhone 7 32 GB in blacksilvergold or rose gold bundled with a free $55 airtime PIN for $298.99. Assuming you can use the airtime, that's an effective price of $243.89 for the phone.

This is the lowest price I've ever seen for a brand new iPhone 7, a phone which normally sells for $549 unlocked at Apple or $449 locked from prepaid carriers, including Straight Talk.

Buy this phone only if you plan on using it on Straight Talk. Please do not buy it thinking that it can be easily or inexpensively be unlocked. Phones from TracFone brands like Straight Talk are locked down very tightly. As far as I know, this phone can not be unlocked by any third party unlocking service. Straight Talk says that they will unlock phones after 12 months of paid service, although some users have reported problems getting TracFone to honor their unlocking policy.

According to comments on Walmart and Slickdeals these sale phones come with Straight Talk Verizon network SIMs. In the past it's been possible to use BYOP SIMs from other TracFone brands and networks in Straight Talk iPhones, although I can't guarantee that still works. Also, to get this phone unlocked by Straight Talk you need to use it for 12 months with a Straight Talk SIM.

Here are my picks for the best prepaid and unlocked prepaid deals available this week;

  1. Great prices for the Boost G6 play and e5 play at Walmart, but unless I got a bad phone, the G6 play is super laggy. I got the e5 play in its place and it runs great.

  4. The great thing about Android is that the cheap phones hook you while the pricier models keep you.

    But iPhone still has no hook, so I'll take a big ol' pass on this deal o' the week.

    Until prepaid carriers start giving away the iPhone 6s Plus for free with a port in, Apple can keep its overpriced monopolized junk.

    And yes, I meant the 6s Plus. A free phone's screen shouldn't be smaller than 5in in 2018, and less than 2GB of RAM is a deal breaker.

    But if four months pass after the iPhone 9 gets released and the 6s Plus still isn't going for broke, then they damn well better bust out the 7 Plus sales because a smartphone ain't worth shit once it's more than three years old.

    These ain't no flip phones, and after 3 years apps are generally built and optimized for more modern devices.

    2. iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are still fast with the latest iOS and apps. Remember this 64-bit SoC was the fastest SoC in the world when it was introduced. The 6S has Band 12 and the upgraded 12MP camera and software too.
      I would much rather have a new iPhone for 4 years than a new, cheap Droid every year. No comparison in user experience and updates/security; most iPhone users agree and keep their phones longer than Droid users.

    3. "A free phone's screen shouldn't be smaller than 5in in 2018"
      Phones with screens more than 5" need to be banned for children less than 18 years old. Everybody knows by now that the bigger the screen, the more addicted the user becomes to the smartphone. If you want to kick your addiction and zombie checks, get a flip phone or a smartphone with a screen no bigger than 4.2". You won't look silly any more holding that giant slab to your head. Phablets with big screens are not phones - they are pocket computers with built-in calling. Very poor ergonomics for calling, and very dangerous when driving on the road. Dump it and you might save someone's life - your own.

    4. When I see a guy with a phone with a 4.2 inch screen most likely he is running home to watch new episodes of "Star Trek Enterprise" or something. I want to tap him on the shoulder and remind him that Bill Clinton isn't President anymore. And ask him how much he is paying for his singular phone plan. I'm sure he's going to talk to me about the latest music cassettes he bought of Miami Sound Machine.

    5. To be fair, droid users aren't children or irresponsible adults, so we can afford to upgrade to the mid-range flavors of each year while enjoying nicer form factors, processor improvements and newer bands, all for the same price as keeping huge bezels or an unsightly notch for the next 4 years.

      We can even universally manage files on any of our devices using both internal and transferrable storage in addition to cloud-based options, instead of needing a constant internet connection to access a basic central file repository.

      On that note, iSheeple are still trying to figure out where iCloud ends and iCloud Drive begins, as well as how to download certain files with Safari.

      Anyway, I'm not gonna get into a bullet point list of every little incredibly stupid design decision that makes iPhones with 128GB of storage worth about $200 in terms of real world value and usability, otherwise I'd be sitting here all day and need at least 5 comments near the character limit.

      Instead, I'm just gonna restate the point that no sane person would pay over $300 just to constantly trip over iOS's baked in restrictions, training wheels, floaties, play pens, bubble wrapping, safety helmets, sofa slipcovers, helicopter parenting, and other sorts of metaphorical obstacles intended to idiot-proof iPhones from what appears to be their intended demographic of the absolute lowest common denominator.

      Or rather, $400+ for a fragile children's toy is a little bit too much for something that won't even instill the knowledge, wisdom and responsibility that comes from not living your entire life in a sandbox, let alone serve as an effective and customizable daily driver for on the go.

      That's why these iPhone deals are kind of an eyesore, because iOS is undeniably the boring, stodgy old grandpa who's set in his ways and, even though he's getting up there in years, still refuses to switch to a bidet because new technologies and innovations are evil, and having Apple keep your bum/phone clean for you has always been the iOS way no matter how messy or clogged up it makes your experience.

      A tech company being THAT reactionary is as unsightly as it is ironic, and this is coming from a guy who thinks robots will kill us all.

    9. A couple random observations.

      My SO and her co-workets at a high tech corp. are very well compensated, she was commenting the other day re that iPhone was disappearing from her coworker's hands.

      While at a Sprint corporate store waiting my turn I observed mostly a stream of people juggling plans and finances to attempt to stretch limited resources in an effort to see if they could afford the latest shiny fruit, debt be dammed. Sheeple being led to financial slaughter.

    10. When something is a close to perfect as an iPhone, some people will stretch to own (or lease) one. Just human nature - wants vs. needs. It's like someone living in a poor area who can't afford a nice house, so they might buy a nice car or phone instead. That's the way the world works.
      The worst purchase value of all is an expensive droid. Its value drops like a rock as soon as you buy it, and the warranty won't transfer on most so you lose again when you sell. And of course you sell earlier than you intended cause you can't get all the latest OS and security upgrades you want, unless you pay as much as you would for the phone that most people truly want ...... an iPhone.

      Delete
    11. "The worst purchase value of all is an expensive droid"

      I find that to be the best purchase value, because it is a high performing phone with a camera as good as the iPhone camera, a better OS. and sometimes includes basic features as an SD card slot always lacking on an iPhone.

      If an iPhone is "close to perfect", then an Android (with its better OS and Micro SD memory expansion) is even closer to perfect.

      " the phone that most people truly want ...... an iPhone."

      That's a bit misleading. By BRAND, the iPhone is the most wanted. By OS, Android phones are what most people truly want compared to IOS.

      Delete
    12. People don't buy mobile operating systems; they buy phones. The iPhone is the best overall package of hardware, software, support and warranty, by far. So people buy more iPhones.
      If you want the best phone that runs Android, the Pixel, you won't get a microSD slot at any price. So to get a prompt OS and security updates, you give up that feature. And Pixels aren't selling that well anyway, given all the defects.
      That leaves the Korean phones. The best are pretty good, since Android 7 made them usable. But they still drop in value like a rock, so even if people think they are almost as good as an iPhone, they get crushed in the value comparison. And good luck getting the warranty to transfer when you change your mind.
      Nothing beats iPhone.

    14. As a smart consumer I love the value drop on many Andriod phones as soon as the next model is announced or released. I have never paid more than 40% MSRP on a new phone, buy just as the new model is released, use for 3/4 years no problems or issues. just got rid of S4 for S8 a few months ago as the S9 came out. S4 was still running great, just wanted to update, gave mom the S4.

    15. Apple bruhs, the Android ecosystem is so diverse that anyone can get what they want.

      People who want updates get the Nokia 6.1, Nexus 7x, OnePlus or Pixels, while those who value universal compatibility can get the Moto G series.

      Of course, people who "want it all" can still go with iPhone. But Android retains the fluidity of the user experience across iterations while Apple forces you to relearn how to use your phone the moment they go semi-bezeless.

      The fact is, Apple's look and functionality from a usage perspective are sorely lacking.

      The only thing iSheeple trot out in defense are the tired old memes like "hu hu too poor," "muh resale value," and "muh superior hardware."

      But the thing is, those are all tangential to the overall core user experience of having a phone that makes navigation and customization a breeze.

      Ultimately, it all comes down to practicality vs how much you're compensating for.

      Personally, I'm not nearly insecure enough to spend $1000 on a top of the line iPhone without B71 just so I can wave a gold brick in people's faces.

      What's worse is that said brick will depreciate like a rotting fruit the moment 5G gets rolled out over the next couple years.

      I could have 5 generations of the latest, most up to date mid-rangers instead, and I'm a lot more hype about being an early adopter of 5G than I am about overpriced iPhones.

      Once 5G hits in 2020, all iPhones from before then will become the mobile equivalent of an expensive Joisey McMansion, with a high resale price tag and no buyers.

      That's defintely not the kind of predictable valuepocalypse I'd consider investing my money in.

    16. "People don't buy mobile operating systems; they buy phones"

      You are making this up simply because more people choose the operating system that you don't like.

      The fact remains that more people choose Android phones due to best overall package of hardware, software, support and warranty than choose iPhones.

      You sure are obsessed with resale value of your iPhone. I guess that must be a common fear and obsession with iPhone users. Android people just use their phones and enjoy them.

      "Nothing beats iPhone."

      Only if this field you are comparing the iPhone to includes nothing other than Windows Phone. If you add an Android, Android beats iPhone. That's based on what the people who actually buy the things prefer.

      Personally I won't choose an iPhone because it has a rudimentary and crude operating system that is really just the iPod system designed for playing music files with some modifications made to it. It's pretty hard to do what I want with an iPhone compared to even a cheap Android.

      Go ahead and try and copy files on and off your iPhone and you will find out that this is true. The problems start from there... and continue on to a wildly inconsistent back function and a home screen jumbled with icons that cannot be resized or removed....

      But go ahead I know you are a huge fan. You think your beloved product is the best thing even though most people disagree. I think you are just going crazy trying to justify the hype purchase price you paid for your iPhone X.

  9. So there we have it. Phones with screens large enough to actually use should be banned due to entirely imaginary complaints about zombies and addiction.

    And I'm sorry no one is actually been talking about phablets. We are talking about properly sized phones.

      Flip phones are one recent solution to break the time-sucking addition and retake control of your life and relationships (celebs also are using them to avoid pix and text hacking). Smaller phones are safer, less addicting and much more ergonomic to use one-handed. And they sure don't look as silly next to your head.

  10. "I would much rather have a new iPhone for 4 years than a new, cheap Droid every year. No comparison in user experience and updates/security; most iPhone users agree and keep their phones longer than Droid users."

    Droids kill iPhones when it comes to user experience, hands down. Go ahead and try to copy files off your iPhone, or multitask, or side load anything. Or even such Basics as a consistent back function in which iPhones totally fail. These are things that the users are able to do on Droids. The Android world is focused on the user experience. The iOS world is focused on strange dictates from the cardinals in Cupertino.

    You are correct on security updates. But then all you have to do is get a Pixel phone which has the great Android advantages, along with security and OS updates as quick as with an iPhone.

    3. iPhones respond quicker and smoother than Android phones. Even with a Q'comm 800 series SoC and years of programming changes the Androids have some lag. That's the way they were programmed - put another task in the que and we'll do it when we're ready.
      An iPhone drops everything to respond to your screen jab. And every iPhone from the A9 CPU on is running a superior SoC. An iPhone 7 still beats Samsungs that are one or 2 years newer on benchmarks, e.g. And the iPhone 8/Plus beats virtually everything.
      You don't have to settle for the Android lag - just get an iPhone if you want superior performance.

      Delete
    4. It's going to take a lot more time to do stuff on an iPhone because the back function is found all over the place and you have to go fishing all over the screen every single time.

      That's much worse than lag, and it's caused by a sloppy inconsistent poorly thought-out operating system.

      Or when I had an iPhone, I tried to copy one single music file to it. It took hours of effort and I gave up when I found out it couldn't be done. And this is the same operation that happens in seconds on any Android phone.

      You talk about inconsequential things such as screen jabs. But I talk

    5. iPhones are the easiest smartphones to learn and use. Then Win10, with Android dead last.
      Apple makes everything simple. A single Home button, and other controls within the app so you don’t have to keep switching back and forth between app and screen buttons. Apple’s dev guidelines assure that basic functions like Back work the same in all apps. 'Back' is always in a left corner. Almost all apps have it at the top, but browsers place it at the bottom. You concentrate on what your are doing without having to search for the right screen button. iPhones 1-8 all work the same, so no need to relearn when you get a new iPhone (iPhone X requires learning new gestures).
      Android phones’ multiple screen buttons vary by OS, devices and skins. Icons look different. Some are lighted, some are not. Placement and type of button varies. It’s a mess, and when you change phones you have to learn the buttons again. Multiple, varying screen buttons are the bane of Android for a beginner. Lots of confusion.

    6. Manually transferring single music files? How quaint. Apple revolutionized music players 17 years ago with the first iPod. Existing digital music players before that were "big and clunky or small and useless" with user interfaces that were "unbelievably awful.” Apple’s “digital hub” and sync concepts were brilliant, and we take them for granted today. Syncing music from your computer, music store or the iCloud is so easy that even a caveman can do it (well, not cavemen who grew up with DOS and HAVE to transfer everything manually). Apple does not try to make iOS work like macOS or Windows - that defeats simplicity. iTunes with iCloud is a very easy, convenient way to manage all your music so you can listen to any song on any device at any time. It just works. Learn iTunes, and you’ll never need or want to manually transfer music again.

      Delete
    7. Manually transfer music files? It's the easiest thing possible and even the Macintosh lets you do it. But that's because the Mac has a real operating system instead of what the iPhone has, which is a music player operating system with a few tweaks on top of it. Being able to actually copy the files you want is state-of-the-art.

      iTunes is extremely difficult to use for music and far more difficult than simply copying the files there. For one thing, it forces you to use playlists. I never use those.

      I don't need to learn iTunes. I play music on devices that simply let me play whatever music I want and copy it whatever way I want. And this does include the synching that you talked about, if I want.

      I for Icloud? My brother exclusively uses Apple for just about everything. But he never uses iCloud because it is so difficult to use and way overpriced compared to everything else.

      Besides it is ridiculous to have to copy stuff to a cloud to get stuff between two machines that are sitting right next to each other. In fact, it's absolutely insane. Ask Jennifer Lawrence how great iCloud is. She uploaded her pictures to it and pretty soon they were all over the internet. If she would have had an Android, she probably would have directly copied the photos from one device to another without having to send them all over the whole world.

      Having to use the cloud just to copy files from one device to another is about as dumb as getting an airplane ticket to Pittsburgh and back just to go down to the corner liquor store.

      Sorry, Charlie. You struck out this time at bat.
