    What Are The Current MVNOs With Free (Or Dirt Cheap) Small Amount of Data Plans?

    I am looking for something free (or dirt cheap) that gives me a small amount of data each month for PTT service on a spare smartphone of mine. I would prefer an AT&T MVNO, but I might consider a T-Mobile MVNO, too. 1GB of data per month would probably be plenty.

    One of the least expensive, "emergency" or "low use" Verizon plans is [PagePlus Cellular](https://www.pagepluscellular.com/plans/10-standard-pin/).

    4G pay-go: $10 every 120 days (single bucket):
    * 6 cents per minute
    * 5 cents per text
    * 5 cents per MB

    And ... the unused funds carry over!

    Tello T-Mobile has 1GB for $6/30 days.

    Red Pocket AT&T OR T-Mobile via eBay has 1,000/Unlim/1GB LTE for $8.25/30 days if you pay $99/360 days.

    T-Mobile Prepaid has 2GB for $10/30 days.

    That's a good plan for some uses, but it's not AT&T or T-Mobile, and 1 GB would cost $51.20!

    So, I don't think this plan matches the OP's request.

    I agree. OP would be best on Tello, Hello mobile, and similar that offer unlimited talk/text and 1gb for $10/month.

    Tello does 2gb for $14.

    Hmmm... Does Jim1348 need talk and text in addition to the 1GB of data? He didn't say so. But if yes, then 2 of my 3 suggestions above wouldn't be a good fit.

    Tello.com, using the T-Mobile network, has a special promo right now: All plans are 50% off for the first 3 months.
    To meet the OP's requirement, 1GB/mo (with unlimited text but no voice minutes) is $3 right now for the first 3 months. (The same plan would be $6 after the first 3 months.) It's paid by-the-month, though, so you can cancel anytime. The offer also includes a free SIM card, normally $10.
    Tello allows building custom plans, so you can add minutes or data as required.

    Sign up using a referral link or code, and you'll get $10 in Tello Dollars that can be used to pay for another month or 2 after the discounted 3 months are used.
    My Tello referral code is P3BSR5HV, and gets both of us 10 Tello Dollars to pay for a plan.

    A good deal for sure, but the OP is looking for 1gb per month.

    Freeup Mobile has a Unl talk/text/ 1GB plan on the AT&T network for $15 a month. Freedompop also has their pitiful 10min/10text/25mb free plan on the AT&T network, but you can add 1GB of data for $10 to it every month.

    Yes. That's also a good plan for certain uses, but 200MB ≠ 1GB required by the OP.

    Liberty Wireless has a 1 GB monthly plan for $7.75. The catch is you have to pay 1 year up front. ($92.99—UT&T—1 GB Hard Capped—T-Mobile Network)

    Excellent rate, $100 for whole year at a time, according to the PLAN's page on their site.
