    Ran Speedtest again at 11 PM when network traffic was expected to be lighter. My download speed increased. Here are my updated numbers.

    On AT&T: pings between 18 and 30 ms. Down is between 6.5 and 8.5 Mbps. Up is between .5 and 1 Mbps.

    Just ran 2 speed tests RP ATT.

    For 2nd moved phone 3 feet.
    2nd: 22d/21u

    Weird.

    My phone Android LG G Flex APN Settings doesn't allow for a combined Web & MMS entries. They are separated.

    The Red Pocket Android APN Settings from the website are:

    I tested the MMS functionality by sending & receiving MMS to my email. Both worked.

    Is this a VALID way to test the MMS functionality?

    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude. I fear fascism is here in the US. [fascism: government led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition & criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., & emphasizing an aggressive nationalism & often racism]

    Looks like this plan is gone again. They have a 6 month plan for $153 and monthly, but that's it.

    They may have just ran out of stock. RP was using amazon fulfillment which requires sellers to ship their stock to an Amazon warehouse. I am guessing this is the case since you can still buy via RP through Amazon (not fulfillment).

    Red Pocket running out of stock makes sense. I see their projected delivery dates are between Aug. 31 - Sept. 6. (Ships from CA.) If there was stock on hand, delivery would be in a couple of days (plus holiday delay). Also the additional shipping charge makes sense since the kit is now purchased through a "third party" as others have observed. The upside is the $21.25/month deal lives on!

    Well enjoying it so far. One thing that attracts lots of us is that RP uses all 4 carriers. MVNO prices are racing to the floor. Prediction similar deal at <$225 12mo from now.

    I love my Red Pocket 3GB Annual CDMA-V plan - but I had a random thought:

    Maybe this is just a marketing strategy? Nothing makes a person want something like not having it available. By periodically removing then slightly changing an offer, it builds a lot of traffic on forums and social media. I would guess that since the period of unavailability is so short, not too many have gone elsewhere. More likely, people are saying, "I wish I had purchased that" and they are watching and waiting until it goes back on sale. A prospective buyer would be encouraged to buy it when they can - even if they didn't need it quite yet - because it may go away again. Just saying...

    It could be, but it also might create doubt to already price sensitive consumers at the same time, now Apple since its one of the tech pirates can get away with that, like Google and Facebook Americans will line up like sheep at the alter of sili.valley.

    I think they are a small conscientious company having growing pains. Rather than grab it all now. They are processing the sales & when they hit their limit they stop selling till they catch up.

    Do you mean the network? If that's what you mean, you choose after you receive your SIM kit and/or during activation.
