Roaming is not even a thing anymore. All plans roam without thought, care, or issue, as long as your provider or their MVNO (reseller) has towers in the area.
09-14-2021 at 09:20 PM
No roaming. This mvno only works on their towers aka pick the sim for your area Verizon or Att.
09-17-2021 at 04:24 PM
Almost all MVNOs do not allow roaming. Ting did and some charge per minute but most do not have roaming.

If you're renewing, they just email you the code. If you're new and need a SIM, they will snail mail the SIM, but I believe they still email the code to you.
09-14-2021 at 10:55 AM
You can expect to receive your renewal code via email within 24-48 business hours. However, should this not be the case, please send us a DM and we'll surely take a closer look.

You can renew, change plans, port out or just walk away.
09-15-2021 at 09:40 AM
Service just stops. You can buy refill codes on ebay with the same sim card

i believe it does continue at slow speed - but wondering if its possible to buy more data if required ? say i still need 3GB more - is it possible to buy it ?
09-15-2021 at 09:39 PM
Depends on the plan. Some stop outright, some of the higher ones have unlimited data but it's super slow after you use your base amount. You can pay for extra high speed data on their site, but it doesn't carry over to the next month and it's not a great deal if you have to do it often.

Under normal circumstances, all companies are required to let you port your number. It's important that you still have active service on your old plan while you're going through the process.

If that phone uses a sim card and is unlocked it should work. You may want to try a single month plan first and cancel/refund the service if it doesn't work.

I've had CDMA verizon redpocket for almost 2 years, I'd say it's about the same as other verizon mnvo's, all of them seem to have occasional weird coverage issues that I don't think you'd get with verizon proper, but the cost savings are worth it. The only problems are:
1. visual voicemail stops working every few months, you have to call redpocket, they fix it in a 15 minute call, say this shouldn't happen again, and then it only works for another few months.
2. NO TETHERING on current phones! I had a moto x4 up until a few months ago and tethering worked fine. I just switched to a pixel 3a and found out that officially tethering IS NOT ALLOWED and it was just a bug with older phones that allowed it to.

Now I'm looking for a new provider when my year is up in a few months, I'll probably have to go with verizon prepaid.

att gsma redpocket does support tethering but you don't get visual voicemail for free. I took two phones on vacation to some national parks, att redpocket and verizon redpocket. the att usually reported the same signal or one bar higher, however in terms of actual data usability it was about the same, I saw somewhere that maybe att's thresholds for the bar levels are a little lower. But when it really mattered I was able to get just enough intermittent signal from verizon to get an email out whereas att was useless.

Also, att tethering apparently blocks all ports other than standard web traffic, so I had problems with some of my work apps that were fine with verizon.
Only for the few lucky ones who're eligible for this bucks promotion.
For those on or wanting the 20GB plan - which is regularly $336/year via their eBay store - was priced at $300 in late October 2020. I bought that on October 14th to be specific - more than a month before Black Friday.

Also, Red Pocket eBay plans can be applied up to 90 days after purchase... or at least that was the arrangement last year. My October 14 purchase was held and was applied on December 9th.... which from my perspective means I'm already within 90 days of my own renewal so my eyes are open for the next deal on the 20GB plan.

Last - tethering. I can't help anybody tied to or preferring the Verizon network. All I know is it's worked consistently on AT&T for years on every one of my phones.

1GB plan also has a small discount $94 (usually $99) so $7/mo. The 1GB doesn't go on sale nearly as often as the 3GB & 8GB. I think the last time it was $94 was last Dec 2020?

Out of all the network Red Pocket uses, I find that Verizon one was the only one that does not drop calls for me.

They explicitly say tethering is included...

Can anyone else weigh in on tethering experience?

When you carefully read all the details you'll see that tethering/hotspot isn't allowed on CDMA with android phones.

"Yes! Tethering and Hotspot services are available with Red Pocket plans.
IMPORTANT: Tethering and Hotspot service availability will vary depending on the network and device.
CDMA: Tethering and Hotspot services are supported on most iOS devices, please contact support to enable services.
GSMA/ GSMT/CDMAS: Tethering is supported on most Android and iOS Devices."

Yes I noticed they seem to not have CDMA Android compatibility. Might be their MVNO deal with that carrier?

But with this purchase you can choose which network you're on right? So if tethering is important to you, pick a compatible network (unless coverage wise you have no real choice)
