    Well I hadn't considered that (gpz1100's suggestion), but it might just work for this application (understanding what Boz1 is saying as the primary purpose for that feature).

    I never kept up with the the "final" T-mobile $3/mo PAYGO plan around the time it was outsourced to Ultra.

    Straight Talk has kind of a deluxe version of this phone called the LG Reflect. General design is of the newer 18:9 screen aspect ratio (essentially 2:1) style. Don't know much else about it except...

    I think the answer (partially anyway) is that you have to have achieved Gold Rewards status at some point with those types of plans. It just being an old "Legacy" grandfathered plan is not enough....

    It'll be the midrange and lower devices that keep the 3.5mm jack. Most all the top end stuff has dropped or intends to drop that very useful feature, whether Android or iPhone.

    Pinzoo.com has a pretty good selection, but as far as fees, it varies.
