Use Chase Credit Card 5% Cash Back Offer on up to $1,500 in combined purchases when using PayPayl from 10/1/2020 – 12/31/2020.


If ordering "Renewal / Existing SIM," use an address from a tax free state to skip taxes on eBay

Clarifying Details from Red Pocket customer support rep CS Karl on 12-Oct.
  • Hotspot Tethering on CDMA: "We do apologize please be advise that we only support hotspot /tethering on our CDMA network for IOS devices." (implying android does not support tethering on the CDMA)
  • Upgrading your old plan to this one: "You need to upgrade it on the expiration date of the each of the plan, because if you will upgrade it today it will apply right away and remaining days for the current plans will be gone or forfeited"
  • How long do we have to activate this plan/SIM? "Please be advise that activations for the annual plan has a Expiration date of 90 days" (implying that if your renewal date is more than 90 days away from your purchase date, you may want to wait for the next sale)
  • Does our old 5GB plan have 7GB now or still 5GB? "Although the 5gb plan I purchased Black Friday 2019 now shows as a 7gb plan on the "My Lines" summary page, the actual remaining capacity is only 5gb per month when they calculate it." Karl indicated " it will become 7GB on the renewal date" --ChronoTriggered: "My 5GB now shows I have 7GB per month with 6GB remaining, so I believe it was upgraded."
  • Is this truly Unlimited Data? "Unlimited" data does not imply unlimited high speed LTE data. After burning through your 7GB of limited high speed data the plan speeds slow.

Is Hotspot included in this?

I've got to have it as an option to make this work for me.

It looks like a great deal - especially if it includes it.

As usual it's not true
First of all it's 209.99 for 360 days, not 365 So for each month you own $17.74 + state tax.
For example for New York you going to pay $19.21 per month

I am on an iPhone XS Max using Red Pocket's CDMA (Verizon) and my hot spot is enabled and works. I messaged them about this a while back because I didn't see it enabled and they said "Hi there! Your account already has the Hotspot feature available. Try to set it up again. Please make sure you have a valid device so you can use Hotspot on your phone." Immediately after receiving the message, I checked my settings again and hotspot was there and working.

New to red pocket. I have Google pixel 3a xl and on mint currently.

Should I get the Verizon or att one? They both have similar coverage where I live. Also it is the same quality as the vz/att monthly pay plans?

As long as the plan is the same and with the same carrier, you can tack on the new 12 mo. plan. It gets added to the end of your expiration date.

So for instance, if your expiration for your existing ATT 5GB plan (now automatically upgraded to 7GB) is March 2021. If you buy the 12 mo. plan today, it'll update your expiration date to March 2022.

Last year I needed the SIM card so I paid the tax. This year, I don't need anything physically shipped to me, so I used an zero sales tax address from out of state. No tax paid this time.

You can buy as many as they have in stock. I did this deal last year for my mom and myself, no problem.

I can only speak from my experience on Red Pocket's CDMA (Verizon) plan. I have all the features I need: LTE, Mobile Hotspot, Visual Voicemail, MMS/SMS texting, and the same service reception/quality as my friends with Verizon. I have been in remote areas where service is spotty for all carriers and I still had the same reception as my friends with Verizon.

Can you provide a little more context as to how you obtained this knowledge? I ask because the previous Red Pocket threads were all over the place in regards to this topic. I'd prefer the knowledge coming from first hand experience or from a rep that's written in text (conversation over the phone is hard to prove if they try to screw you in the future). I usually DM them on Twitter or message them on eBay so I have proof of their answers. Thank you!

:

T-Mobile's coverage is spotty in my area, especially in my home. What's the point of a cell phone if I can't even use it to call 911 in an emergency? So, my only option was to go with Verizon. I ended up going with Xfinity Mobile's unlimited for my wife (runs of Verizon for $45/month) and Red Pocket (CDMA Verizon) for myself. I've been 100% happy with my service and I'm 11 months in.

I got several thumbs down for saying the $240 deal a few weeks ago was just so-so, and that since they were raising the existing plans to 7gb that it really amounted to a price increase, not a deal. Now here you are, this is more like it.

Too many people trying to sell you something on these threads, not help find the best possible price.

Quote from 8WDKxsw6
:
If you care about sending messages with your phone service, avoid Red Pocket at all cost. It is well-documented in previous posts and in our experience that RP will shut down your text messaging without warning because they claim it is being overused. They refer you to their terms of service, which they claim gives them the right to do so at any time they want for any reason they want. They won't tell you how many is too many, but from anecdotal evidence, it is somewhere in the range of more than 8 messages in a minute, which is easy to do in group messaging. Their unlimited messaging is not unlimited! Avoid RP at all cost if you care at all about messaging.
specifically international calling and texting on the Verizon plan...it never worked, that's why I'm leaving RP

There will prolly be a better deal on Black Friday. That's when it's the best pricing for all carriers of this type.
