@bingyee - curious re your experience porting out of Red Pocket.
I have only done it once and I suspect I do WAY less porting in general than you but my experience was that they didn't want to release the # and kept trying to throw up roadblocks.
For a "pro" like you maybe not a big deal.

I don't do FP/RP for my main number(s) anymore mainly because I've encountered problems porting in.  I haven't had problems porting out, but I do recall that it's just painfully slow to have to stay on a chat with customer service to pry the info out of them.  They usually ask to confirm your SIM's ICCID.  It helps to have a multiple monitor set-up so can more easily multi-task.  FP/RP also take their sweet time releasing the number.  If you just use them to leverage other deals, as opposed to using it to house your main carrier, it's fine.

By far the best set-up is Xfinity Mobile's.  Their system is automated but pretty secure.  Your account number appears on the 'devices' page, and you are able to click a link at the bottom of that page for transferring numbers to request that a PIN be sent to one of your active lines, which is good for 5 days.

If you have an unlocked or AT&T compatible phone, RedPocket is offering their 50gb plan for $1 (plus tax) for the first month only, when you use coupon code RPSWITCHBACK15. After that, the plan goes to $50. I strongly suggest you buy with a virtual card with a pre-set spending limit of $2 so that you won't get accidentally get charged a lot of moolah after the first month discount is over.

This is good if you only need a lot of data for 1 month only. It's also a good option to create a new number in case you come across a good Black Friday deal that requires a number port-in.

Argh.  This RedPocket plan doesn't come with hotspot for iPhones.  That probably also means that it's disabled for AT&T stock Androids.  I need to see what happens when I use the SIM with my Galaxy S7s (one issued by T-Mobile the other by Verizon) and my ZTE A3 Prime. 

Nevermind. It was a glitch in RP's system.  After a chat, I got hotspot to work

Argh, I just ordered a BYOD last night when it was $50.  I obviously don't have to go through with that but the problem is that I need to use a different phone IMEI.
