Moto E Refurbished 1st Gen Page Plus ( Verizon MVNO ) for only $9.99 and $0.01 Shipping ($30 a year service options) 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 (RingMinus and FreedomPoop) 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 RingMinus and Freedompoop, 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.

I posted this deal last time before ordering and my order was cancelled! This time I made sure to order before posting. After you see this thread I would immediately order, as they will sell out quickly and you will not know until several days later when your order gets cancelled.

Moto E Refurb Specs:
Android™ 4.4, KitKat®
4.3" qHD Display with Corning® Gorilla® Glass
3G /Wi-Fi® Connectivity
5MP Camera /Video Recorder

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.

As I mentioned in the first post, I would order right away, this will sell out quick like last time! I made sure not to put R+ and FP in the opening thread as people complained about their deal alerts. I get false deal alerts all the time. No big deal, just mark as read.

I'm no expert but if this is 1st gen moto E then it can't be upgraded to android 6.0.
New apps would need 6.0, no?
Also, the $10 dollar Pageplus load does not include any data I can see, except for 10 cent per MB. For a smartphone, thats not much afaik. Your phone may connect and update apps itself, draining your funds.
Seems like an interesting deal, though.

Would this be good for someone with a dumb phone to just use Amazon Echo Alexis and smart plugs thru wireless?

I got an order error message but they still charged my card. The same thing happened a week ago when I tried to buy some phones from Straight Talk Wireless.

I guess if you buy too many of these phones you get banned from all these companies. Do they share ownership or are they working together or is this a government thing? I just need some more perk farm phones.

Picked one up, thanks OP. These actually make for pretty solid little workout music players (on Wi-Fi) using your favorite streaming app/service + SD Card slot + built-in FM Radio (uses your headphones as an antennae).. Durable build quality too, so you don't have to baby it too much for the price.

Since VZW phones are normally SIM unlocked, would this be suitable for international/travel usage?

Edit: I'm guessing not, because these 1st gen are apparently 3g vs 2nd gen 4g and Verizon's lte/4g sim are gsm unlocked.
