Red Pocket Simplifies Plan Lineup, Discontinues Old Plans

Red Pocket has always had an extremely complicated plan lineup that featured around 17 plans scattered across five categories. There were pay-as-you-go options and unlimited options and everything in between. However, it looks like the company has finally decided to simplify things a bit.

Prepaid Faceoff: Red Pocket VS MetroPCS

VS

With the massive number of prepaid MVNOs and carrier options, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all and even harder to compare and decide which company is the right one for you. So, every once in a while we’re going to go through and do a Face-off of two popular companies, comparing plans and services to help you better decide.

Today, we’ll look at Red Pocket, and MetroPCS. Red Pocket has been around for a while and offers plans from all four carriers. MetroPCS, by contrast, is owned by T-Mobile and only offers that service; however it is usually one of the best values in T-Mobile prepaid.

Here’s how they compare:

Red Pocket Offers $10 Essential Plan on AT&T, Sprint

Red Pocket is one of the few MVNOs which offers plans from all four carriers, allowing its customers to have the most variety while still sticking with a company they are familiar with. While the company has always been a little uncompetitive when it comes to the higher-priced plans, I have to say that the most recent $10/month plan is actually pretty sweet.

It’s not super uncommon for MVNOs to feature specific deals aimed at certain types of customers. I’m not sure how long this has been going on, but it looks like Red Pocket has launched some Verizon powered plans which can only be purchased through Ebay. These exclusive Ebay deals not only offer LTE through Verizon, but also seem to support Verizon phone activation.

Red Pocket Mobile announced last week that customers utilizing the $69.99 GSMA plan can tweak settings in order to access AT&T’s LTE network speeds. I probably don’t have to say it, but you need to have an LTE capable phone in order to actually use LTE. Prior to this most recent announcement, the only network that offered LTE through Red Pocket was T-Mobile, on GSMT-specific plans.

AT&T MVNO Coverage Maps Compared

phone bars

Last week, I posted an article comparing all of the Verizon MVNO coverage maps. Several of them were a little surprising, so I thought that I would go through all of the other Tier 1 carriers and compare maps of their MVNOs to see how they stacked up. While most MVNOs share the prepaid network of their primary carrier, some of them skimp on coverage to cut costs, and very few of them offer roaming in areas with no Tier 1 carrier network coverage.

Today, we have a compilation of the AT&T MVNO maps. Most of them shared coverage with GoPhone, but did not offer roaming (represented by the lighter yellow areas). However, the maps were far more similar than the Verizon MVNO maps we saw last week.

So, without any more ado, here are the AT&T MVNO maps:

Red Pocket Juggles All 4 Carriers

Red Pocket has changed around their Flagship Plans this week and they now have plans using all four big carriers, although they don’t actually use their names. It isn’t hard to figure out which is which though, with a bright magenta T, calm blue A, fiery red V and a cheerful yellow S at the top of each…but at least it will be easy to know who your service is with and which devices to use.

These four Red Pocket plans are available on all four networks (for the most part) and are as follows:

  • *$29.99/30 days – unlimited talk, text, 500 MB ‘reduced speed’
  • *$39.99/30 days – Unlimited talk, text, 500 MB ‘high speed’ before throttling
  • $49.99/30 days – unlimited talk, text, 1 GB ‘high speed’ before throttling
  • $59.99/30 days – unlimited talk, text, 3 GB ‘high speed’ before throttling.

*It should be noted that the $29.99 is not available on GSMT and the $39.99 is not available on CDMAS, but both are coming soon.

As for each individual carrier, there are specific plans available:
