Frasier1 gave a detailed report sometime ago and I’m wondering if that incoming call not ringing flaw was fixed.


Personally I'd just go with the redpocket $30 annual plans.


Can someone plz post a link to the $30 annual plan? Thx.

It's also available as a by-the-month plan, at a slightly higher cost of $3/mo. (Instead of the $2.50/mo averaged cost of the annual plan.)

The last line I helped set up (perhaps 4 months ago) on the by-the-month plan took several attempts, which seemed to be related to email addresses I either had, or had not, used previously on Red Pocket. (Sorry, I don't remember the exact details of what worked and what didn't.....)

Both of the plans are legacy-Sprint network.
A footnote: on either plan, the default is auto-renew. Porting out a number does not immediately close the account as it does with most providers, and the auto-renew will go merrily on it's way renewing a non-existent plan if you don't manually close the account online. This seems to be a Red Pocket "feature".
