    1. Then stay at freedompop. Personally I see no comparison between fp and rp--for those that don't appreciate the fp antics then this is a great option.

    2. Tempting. Is Hotspot allowed on that plan? I have the basic LTE 200 plan and hotspot is not working for me. I don't need it often but would be nice if it would work.

    3. On the other hand for people who need 2GB, $15 is hard to beat, especially without paying by the year.

  2. Kind of unusual for a US prepaid operator to offer data only? This is standard in Europe but hard to find here...

  3. Does Red Pocket allow me to keep my phone# when I subscribe to data only, under this offering?

    1. Probably not. A phone number is useless on a data-only account. My FreedomPop AT&T data-only SIM doesn't have a phone number, I don't know if Red Pocket's do or not.

    2. Actually I believe your SIM does have an identifying "phone number", even my old T-Mobile 200mb/mo/life SIM has an identifying "phone number". I would assume every SIM needs one associated with it. On the orher hand, porting a normal phone number may not be an option for data-only SIMs. You could ask RedPocket. I'm actually going to ask T-Mobile if I do the same after my Virgin $1/mo promo is ended.

    3. @Anon1157: wasn't 200MB FDFL meant for tablet usage only? Tablet SIMs have had phone numbers forever.

      What devices does RPT expect users to use these SIM cards with?

  4. Stupid question: if data-only sims are used in a phone, is hotspot officially supported?

    1. I don't have an official answer, but it's clear from the web site that they expect this SIM to be used in phones. Their help page, which is not specific to this plan, says hotspot is allowed on Android for GSMA but doesn't work on iphone. We can hope that the data only plans work the same in that respect as their other GSMA plans. In any case, if they don't comment officially, it will only cost $10 to find out.

  5. Nothing tops Mint, now we even get free calling to Mexico and Canada for free. Only a matter of time before we get a data bump

    1. Except that it is t-mo native only. A no go for a lot of people.

    2. you should have the money to pay for a year which is not everybody can afford.

  6. For those needing a lot of data monthly I would choose the at&t iPad / tablet unlimited plan @ $30 (w/autopay) over RP $50 & probably even the $25.

    1. Problem is att doesnt play nice, once it detects you are using a phone instead of a tablet, it will automatically switch you to one of its prepaid "smartphone" plan. It happened to me before when my credit card got charged a higher amount after my month ran out and i found out on the prepaid site.

      Delete
    2. Bad advice, at&t switched me to a prepaid smartphone plan 5 days after I put that sim in my unlocked Blu smartphone, texted me my new phone number and charged me

      Delete
    3. U was thinking of this data only plan as a tablet or hotspot device plan so the at&t idea works for all that, just not a phone.

      Delete
  7. So they're tablet plans.

    After all, what good is a phone if the phone plan doesn't let you call or text?

    And before anyone whines about muh google voice, GV numbers don't always get those special shortcode texts from 2 factor verification.

    You need a real number for that, which is why phone plans need phone service even if it draws from a paygo balance.

    As for the XXL plan, it's only 20GB, and it includes the condition that you'll probably be switched or cancelled for using more.

    But if you're using up to and around 20GB, it's probably because you're a heavy streamer who'll hit that within a week or two.

    That's what makes those not really unlimited plans such a total scam compared to something monthly with rollover, especially when you can already get 10% off from callingmart plus an autopay discount for AT&T Prepaid service, or 5GB for $10 from Total Wireless.

    Rollover is good for occasional spikes in usage, where as the only way you'll consistently make full use of that 20GB is if you travel, stream and download/upload documents/presentations/spreadsheets/etc a lot to the tune of up to or beyond 100-200 GB in a month.

    At that point, you're better off with a truly unlimited plan from the carrier's own in-house prepaid offering.

    Of course, I say this while hovering around 200GB with my plan renewing tomorrow, without even having touched my PC in months.

    Granted, this isn't the norm and I'll be back on fast, reliable and secure wifi in the coming months, but MVNOs really need to catch up to 2018, where even budget smartphones like the Moto E series are fully functional media and computing devices.

    Gotta get hip with the times, daddy-o's.
