looking for phone plan suggestions

earthshine 325 154 June 18, 2016 at 07:36 PM
My Mom uses her cell phone minimally

Around 40 min/month
Maybe 5 text messages
And up to 200 MB data

We have an unlocked Lumia 640 as well as an old virgin Mobile smart phone

Any suggestions for a good phone plan?

She is on VM unlimited data, 300 min plan but it doesn't get used a whole lot

lycamobile is 29/month. 500mb LTE data then throttled. unlimited calls and text. $26.xx with auto pay. buy the sim from ebay, you can find Sims with 2 month of service for $21 and then autopay.

Thanks

I think her current plan is 25 plus tax for 300 min and unlimited data/text, but she barely uses her phone so I was looking for alternate options

We have a Virgin mobile LG Optimus, Kyocera Ring and Another Samsung phone I would need to check the model

But best one is the unlocked Lumia 640 if I can find a low cost plan to go with it

I am currently on the same plan as her. I had the Optimus V until I upgraded to the ZTE Awe, which is allowed in the $25 grandfathered plan. The Awe is a good upgrade to the Optimus V, if you want to keep the grandfather.
At the end of my month, I'm dropping VM and moving my service to an LG Tribute 2 on a RingPlus 2GB plan.

Others are more knowledgable, but I would say a T-Mobile plan to go with your 640.
