    I've had several Page Plus PAYGO lines for years, at $10/120 days. $2.50/mo. for Verizon service, albeit with inconsistent customer support, is a good value for backup phones. I don't hear good...

    Sticky: Sponsored: Pricing: UTnT v. UTnT + 500MB

    Just to be sure that there's no confusion: T-Mobile's only remaining pre-LTE technology is 2G (GSM). (The AT&T Wrls. Home Phone does run on either 2G or 3G, though.)

    Yes. The AT&T-branded WF720/WF721 W.H.P. accommodates 2G-GSM & 3G-UMTS, so it'll also work on T-Mobile's GSM network. It uses a "standard" mini-SIM (or micro/nano-SIM plus the appropriate adaptor)....

    AT&T MVNO: At the moment, it seems to be Black Wireless's "KEEP ON!" $20 monthly plan. If purchased on a 12-month basis (probably, actually 360 days), it costs $15/month. A SIM card is included.

    A "sort of" answer

    I activated an H2O SIM that's probably five years old on AT&T, for use in a hotspot -- worked on the first try. If it had been defunct, AT&T's online activation portal would've kicked it out...

  11. Another vote for Sprint Phone Connect 2 on Tello

    Forget the $15 spent on the SIM...you'll recoup it soon enough.

    You should, if like me you'd use it for a few short calls or texts now and then. The $15 credit lasted me over two years, and that was under the former 19/min. rate. Now, U.S. minutes are 9...
  16. Works perfectly on Page Plus

    Once the device's ESN/MEID is released by Straight Talk, it activates easily on Page Plus. I've used one with the $80~365-days~4 minutes PAYGO refill (usually discounted to $74-$76).
