    Very cheap AT&T MVNO?

    What providers should I consider?

    I have been paying for $10 topups every 90 days but would like something where I can pay even less than $3.33/month. Something like Tello but AT&T. Lycamobile is no longer an option?

    I don't want to do anything with ads or less stable like FreedomPop.

    My usage would be extremely low but vary.

    Typical usage: 20-50MB and 0-2 SMS and 0 mins.

    I want to be able to use more on demand (and then I would topup after using more in case I need more in the next weeks).

    Idk anything cheaper for that usage. If it was emergency ONLY Truphone I believe never expires. But $30 to start & $0.09 a unit could blow it up for you.

    Red Pocket (AT&T) UTT 5GB exp 09.27.20
    Good2Go (AT&T) UTT recurring {12*26} $13.38 otd/mo
    T-Mobile Gold Rewards $10yr exp 01.11.21
    Tello x2 (Sprint) $5 1-use/3mo no exp by 07.08.20

    If you don't have to have AT&T, Page Plus (Verizon MVNO) is $10 every 120 days. $.05/MB and $.05/text

    Take a look at prepaidcompare.net

    But if you use 50MB, that would cost $4.50 on Truphone. Also, the $30 start-up cost is $15 for the SIM and only $15 in service credit.

    Hm, you helped me remember that AT&T is not the only GSM provider. (Phone has a SIM card.) Apparently I can use a T-Mobile MVNO too? Wow!

    That's generally true for an unlocked phone, but how well it will work on T-Mo depends on the phone and what LTE bands it supports.

    But to my knowledge, if you don't have a Vzw VoLTE compatible phone to be able to use the PPC $10/120 days ($2.50/30 days) paygo plan, the H2O paygo plan is the next cheapest, especially if you set up autopay, where the cost is $9/90 days, or $3/30 days.

    A correction to a comment above.

    Pageplus Cellular is does have a $10 every 120 days plan, but the cost per minute or per text is 6 cents, not 5 cents. See https://www.pagepluscellular.com/plans/

    Where did anybody mention the cost per minute on the PPC paygo plan in this thread? I don't see that, which makes sense, since minutes aren't even being discussed here.

    Also, according to https://www.pagepluscellular.com/plans/10-standard-pin/, texts cost $0.05 each, which is what was previously stated above.

    I’m a Truphone fan. Although startup is a little steep, essentially $15 for the sim and $15 credit, no one has mentioned that incoming calls and texts are free. No expiration date. Combine this with a TextNow app (both voice and text) that I use whenever I can use WiFi, and that $15 credit can last a very long time.

    Do I dare mention TracFone - at their ebay store, there is a $60 1 year 1200m/1200t/3GB data.

    Also several phones bundled with 1500m/ 1500text / 1500MB data for $50. The balances could be transferred to another phone soon

    after activating. BUT, this is still >> 4.20 / month . Might be able to lower that over time by selling the phones with bundles,

    occasional oopsy bonus airtime from TF. They have ATT, Verizon, Tmobile.

    I agree that Truphone can be a great service if the usage fits.

    But did you see how the OP stated "Typical usage: 20-50MB and 0-2 SMS and 0 mins"?
