    Those are the prices with auto pay. W/o auto pay the prices are $5 higher starting with the $25 plan. $30 w/o auto pay. $25 with auto pay.

    According to Red Pocket themselves the $35 plan is $35 ONLY IF YOU BUY IT DIRECT NON AUTOPAY from Red Pocket's website. If you 1)Buy through a pin seller like Caliing mart, 2)Buy through a dealer, , 3) use autopay on Red Pocket's website, it is $30. The same for the other plans that shift prices. The $30 plan (1.5 gb) becomes $25 via dealer/callingmart , other pin sellers/autopay on RP website but $30 if RP website non autopay. $50 plan (5 gb) becomes $45 plan via dealer/pin sellers/RP website autopay). $50 if onetime non autopay pin on RP homepage.
    The $65 plan (8gb) becomes $60 via dealer/pin sellers/RP homepage w/autopay). $65 if onetime non autopay on RP website.

    The $10 plan is currently 500 minutes/500 texts/100 megs of data. Apparently, there were a lot of mistakes by the web designers.
    The $15 plan was listed as both having 500 megs (boo) and 1 gb but it's 1 gb.

    The $20 plan is the only one that undercuts dealers with autopay but it's really slight. .. if one autopays its $19 on RP website but on all the other venues (dealer/callingmart and its cousins/one time payment to RP direct) it's $20.

    Red Pocket is getting a lot of attention but it doesn't hurt to have some more clarification of its plans. Prepaidphonenews did a pretty good job but even they were still unsure of the $10 plan. I heard it may be updated to 500 megs but as of now it's still officially unchanged unfortunately. I was lucky the $15 plan was more in line with my use and activated a line on that.

    The $10 plan is $99/yr via ebay, $8.25/month. The $15 plan adds unlimited texts via ebay yearly, $179. Might be even lower before xmas.

    I'm on the $150/yr ebay deal from last Nov, 1K text and talk, 1GB but the 2nd half is throttled. I'll probably be switching to the regular $15 plan since I don't care about unlimited texts.

    Or maybe just go with the $60/yr ebay deal, $5/month. 100/100/half GB.

    The eBay listing still shows 500min/500min/100mb data. Anyone confirm if the ebay plan will get 500/500/500?
    I bought the plan 2 weeks ago on eBay, but haven't activated yet, you think I will get the updated/higher data limit?

    Edit:

    The article was updated that the $10 plan was incorrectly listed as 500mb data, but it is supposed to be 100mb. The website now shows 100mb data, same as before.

    Reminder that MMS and group SMS will not work on iPhones. Other than that these are good deals.

    No throttled data after the 1GB, I assume.

    It's not an "h20" thing. It's an apple thing.

    https://bestmvno.com/featured/apple-...e-bill-higher/

    The link above is talking a bit about apple/iphones. In the first comment Cat24H claims to have worked for an mvno (unknown) and says that the mvno had to buy iphones worth seven figure digits. That is at least $1 million in iphones before apple would allow mms on the mvno. Cat24H also says that you might be able to pay straight cash to apple and they might accept that.

    H2O wireless has a representative on howardforums as well. The rep says that H2O is currently negotiating MMS access with apple currently.

    Put these 2 pieces of information together and it is clearly apple that is not allowing MMS (and other iPhone features) until MVNOs play ball. Playing ball could consistent of whatever apple demands.

    No wasn't sarcasm sorry if it appeared that way I just meant shocking as in I didn't realize this was happening with both H20 and Red Pocket that's all

    If purchased on E-bay, taxes and fees are included.

    If In Cali you might want to message them about MTS charges.

    Might put my mother's flip phone on the $99 eBay deal. That's 1.65c/minute for ATT, 500 mins/month. Can anyone beat that?
