Red Pocket Mobile Now Has a Family Discount Plan

red-pocket-mobile-family-discount-plan
Red Pocket Mobile has just launched a new family discount plan. Out of the six phone plans offered by the MVNO, one plan is available for a family discount.

The $30 plan comes with unlimited talk, text, and 3GB or 5GB data at LTE speeds; depending on the network it runs.

Subscribers who sign up service under T-Mobile or Verizon's network get 3GB of data. Meanwhile, under AT&T or Sprint's network, subscribers get 5GB of data.

In addition to this, the plan includes unlimited international calling to more than 70 countries. 

With the new family discount plan, subscribers can get additional lines at $20 per month. There is also a one time setup fee of $10. A total of 4 lines may be added to the account.

Taxes and fees are not included in the rate and cost extra.


Thanks, Dave!

  1. So, 2 lines on the Verizon network with 3GB of data each would be $50 per month? Not really that impressive.

    1. what's better from a pricing perspective? certainly Total Wireless is a better value, but is still an extra $7+ each month. what would you recommend over this for 2 lines?

    2. Better than MetroPCS I'm paying now $75 for 2gb lines. After charging me $15 to switch phones I am highly considering 3 5gb lines on Att network for $70. While the yearly ebay plans are cheaper dont have to worry as much if they go under.

  2. Good deal for Verizon, but taxes and fees not included kind of kills it. Would be nice to consolidate all your phones, but ebay annual plans are cheaper.

  3. @Anonymous: Maybe nothing is better from a price perspective, but RPM has some issues. I use an unlocked Galaxy Note 9. For whatever reason, some of the unlocked Samsung phones will not connect to the RPM network. There are well documented discussions with both Red Pocket and Verizon itself on this issue with no resolution. I have no issues using these phones on the Total Wireless Network. We share 15 GB for $60 before taxes.

    1. I found a workaround for this issue that is seen on unlocked Samsung s7/s8/s9 phones with respect to using Verizon service on Red Pocket and on other Verizon MVNOs. Samsung now only makes one physical phone with multiple images that are loaded at boot time. When the phone boots there is an app that detects which service is being used by looking at the sim card (Verizon/T-mobile/Att/Sprint). If the firmware isn't currently loaded for that service it reboots into the correct firmware. I've seen with RPM that it doesn't appear to detect "Verizon" and instead detects one of the others. After reboot the wrong firmware is loaded and the phone doesn't work. Here is the workaround. Put in a postpaid verizon sim card and boot up. This will get the "Verizon" firmware loaded. Then run a debloating tool like PDP (Package Debloater Pro) (http://www.packagedisabler.com/) This program does cost a couple of bucks. In PDP disable the app "com.sec.android.AutoPreconfig". This does NOT need root. Now until you reset the phone to default (hard reset) it will stay in "Verizon" firmware mode. I've successfully tried this on two unlocked Samsung phones (s8 and an s9+) used on RPM Verizon service.

    2. Forgot to mention that with this workaround the postpaid Verizon sim card does not need to be active. I just used an old sim card that had previously been on postpaid Verizon a few years ago.

  4. I am familiar with that workaround but the PDP is a new twist I hadn't heard before. Will that prevent the phone from working on other networks whild the PDP is installed?

  5. Id guess that since with a locked Samsung Verizon phone that Att and Tmobile work well that they would work when locked to Verizon using PDP and disabling the app "com.sec.android.AutoPreconfig".
