Last Edited by Tigger December 1, 2015 at 05:07 PM
Red Pocket Mobile on eBay is selling 1 year plan that has 1000 minutes, 1000 txts and 1GB data per month for $159 for a full year. That's approx only $15/month. They usually sell it at $199. Maybe this is Black Friday pricing. They will include a AT&T and Verizon sim card. This is the cheapest cell phone plan for $15/month with reasonable minutes, texts and data.

If link doesn't work, search item 131593551826 on eBay. Happy Black Friday fellow slickdeal shoppers! And I thank those who gave rep points on my account. nod

UPDATE: The seller changed the listing description to include AT&T and Sprint sim cards (Verizon sim card is no longer part of the sim package). This means Verizon phones will not work under this new deal. Price is still $159.

first 500mb LTE speeds only, otherwise still a good budget deal

How can this exist at such a low price??? Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to use this on my unlocked iPhone 6 Plus that I'm currently using on AT&T? Is the service terrible? What's the catch?

As far as I know. Only catch is 1 year committment. After that, you may have to pay $199 regular price. It uses AT&T or Verizon cell towers, so you should get solid signals.

Great deal! I put my wife and daughter on the $229 annual plan (same as this with unlimited texting) a couple months ago. Works fine except need to turn wifi off to get group mms messages on the AT&T plan.

checked this out a few days ago, it was this price - think it is every day price? seems to have mixed reviews, but I'm tempted.

I been tracking this listing for a while. The $159 price started only yesterday. Prior to that was $199. I believe this is a BF/promotion pricing, so order it while you can. I bought at $199 last week, will return that order and buy at this $159 price instead.

well, it says you can try it for two weeks, and also they accept returns (plus eBay's ridiculous buyer protection that is Waaayyyyy in favor of the buyer)

This is an insane deal! I'm on Verizon Prepaid and I pay $45/mo for 2 gb and unlimited talk/text but I easily use less than RedPocket's allowances. Problem is, Verizon Prepaid has some bullshit where even though they are "prepaid", they won't release your phone number to port out until after 6 mo of service, and I'm not quite there yet.

uh i get nearly this free with ringplus. Also if we avoid yearly prepays and stick to monthly, that would serve the
consumer to help drive the costs down instead of locking ourselves in for a year.

Thanks. Ordered one. There's no reception at work with ATT, I'm hoping verizon will be different.

If they provide both Verizon and ATT SIMs, Can you change which carrier you use sometime in the year?

think FCC regulations require carriers to allow port-out of numbers. your new carrier (Redpocket in this case) might refuse to port-in the number, but that's a separate issue

try to port... if it fails, go complain to FCC
