I am ready to buy a new (to me) device - Samsung S8+. I also am going to switch mvnos - I'm on Ting right now and it looks like there are cheaper options. I'm specifically looking at Mint, Tello, and Red Pocket - as they all seem to be the lower priced options for my needs. (1GB data, 500min talk, 1000 text; greater Washington DC area)

Do you have thoughts on these mvnos or others I should consider? Any thoughts on which carrier's S8 I should get when I buy the device? I don't know much about the different networks - been with Sprint forever until moving to Ting with a Sprint phone.

Thanks in advance!
