Deal Details

Last Edited by jersharocks July 6, 2016 at 05:13 AM
Page Plus Cellular is offering the 1st Gen refurb Moto E for only $9.99 with 0.01 shipping. https://www.pagepluscellular.com/...-(refurb)/ Tracfone recently took them over and I have read that Tracfone refurbs are in excellent shape. While I realize that these were $5 two BF ago, PP has changed which phones they allow on their network. This phone does not need to be flashed and will work on their network as is. This is a 3G phone, but for basic text and talk, that is all you need. The main benefit of getting this phone is Verizon towers. You will have coverage virtually everywhere, will not have to worry about latency (RingPlus and FreedomPop) and they have virtually no outages. (I have used Verizon for over a decade and never had an outage). If you ever have to receive or make an occasional important call, this is phone service for you.

For as little as $30 a year ($10 refills last 120 days), using a CallingMart refill, you can a super reliable back-up phone service. For people who need more minutes, they have 2000 minutes for $80 and is good for 365 days. They also have a $12 a month plan for 250 text and minutes for light users. FYI, they now charge some extra fees with their refills (E911, etc), so I usually get my refills from other places.

I have RingPlus and Freedompop, but I will always keep my PP phone as a backup. An added bonus for PP is their customer service! I had a minor issue and their resolved it within 5 minutes! Their chat is active until 11:45PM Eastern time, so plenty of time to contact even working late at work.

They also are offering the LG Optimus Fuel (refurb) for the same price, but I have had two of them crap out on me and I was not even using them! The specs are much better on the Moto E. I have an ancient LG VX8300 that I plan to upgrade! Some of the buttons stopped working, so I guess I need to get something better. That phone was a brick sh&thouse! It fell off the top of a car once and kept on ticking.

customers be aware, horrible distrustful company. Check here and online for yourself. Same deal happened few times before. They have close to zero stocks, but still take the orders, and cancel them few days later, take long time and painful to refund. Bad customer service, they may be good before but horrible under the Tracfone and later America Movil management. Please don't post these deals with tons of wrong good things about them. If quality of phone calls is good is because of Verizon network not them.



They just added a new ZTE Valet for $9.99 and a refurb LG Optimus Dynamic II for $4.99.

Not sure why the TDs. This is one the least expensive options to have Verizon coverage. I have only once not had coverage with Verizon and their map indicated that I would not have coverage in that area. Sprint maps are not very accurate. I realize FP and RP have better phones and better plans, but their coverage is really crappy and they are as reliable as 1987 Hyundai!

I've got both of these. Fuel is very compact, but I have to put a PIN everytime to access which is annoying. Moto E seems to have longer battery life and wifi range. I use it for wifi music player around the house, but have activated and used the Fuel on pageplus and moto e on selectel in the past.

Maybe because people were alerted to a RingPlus deal when you mentioned it.

I did not realize that this would show up for deal alerts, since there is no mention of RingPlus in the title, but just in the text of the explanation. SD is a fickle crowd, hence why I seldom post up here. I think people are comparing this to some of the phones you can get at BB for $10, like the newer Moto E on last BF and most recently the Alcatel One Touch Elevate phone. These are much better phones, but they will never work on Verizon out of the box and will not work with RP or FP for at least 6 months service. You will NEVER get the coverage or the reliability of Verizon with Sprint MVNOs.

False R+ alert is a great way to get views for your thread.
Price mistake is the best.

I was not trying to do a false R+ alert! I did not put any mention of R+ in the title. Maybe all these people who have deal alerts for R+ need to filter just the titles and not the body text? (all my deal alerts just look at the title)

I was just mentioning R+ and FP, because they are the popular services on here and I wanted to give some of the SD'rs an alternative to Sprint's spotty coverage. I am supposedly in a good 4G LTE area, yet I barely get one bar with multiple devices and usually just goes to 3G.

Doesn't need to be in the title to deal alert someone, long as it's in the OP a deal alert will be tripped. Don't worry about the salty R+ trolls.
