Red Pocket Mobile Review


Red Pocket Mobile differentiates itself from other mobile service resellers by focusing on the international market. Many of their plans include a bucket of international minutes that roll over to the next month if unused. 

Pros: The focus on international calling helps cover a particualr niche. Their lower-tier options, including the weekly and half-monthly plans, can provide value in the right situations.

Cons: The higher tier plans don't provide as much value as similarly priced plans on other carriers. There are simply too many plans.

Fantastic. I have used nearly all of the major carriers, and I always found the customer service very lacking. Finally, disillusioned with major carriers, I tried pre-paid. I was with Simple Mobile for a couple of years. It was okay, but not great. I finally switched to Net10, and I found it to be really painful. Reluctantly, I decided to try Red Pocket before going back at the big guys. Because Red Pocket costs more than most pre-paid services, I almost didn't give them a try. I am so glad I did. The features offered along with the superior service and rock-solid network makes Red Pocket a huge bargain. I am delighted to pay a few extra bucks for such an amazing experience. I couldn't be happier. Simply the best carrier of mobile service I have experienced.

Great customer service, great plans. No issues at all. Agents are also super polite and efficient. I'll be staying with them for a while.

Red pocket sim did work in my att iphone without my iphone being unlocked which was nice feature but their phone support couldn't get mms to work they kept telling me i needed to jailbreak my iphone and im like hell no. So i fooled around on google stumbled upon a few good websites and youtube vids, well it comes down to if you want mms to work your att iphone will need to be unlocked so i purchased the unlock and found out a tmobile sim allows access to the mms settings. I had an old tmobile sim laying around cut it to size and was shocked that a full sized sim i hacked down with scissors worked enough for me to enter those advanced mms settings. Long story short i have full access to internet and mms. However I'm not thrilled with red pockets data plans i may switch out to tmobile i rather my data throttled then cutoff i shouldnt be too suprised red pocket is an att ho-ho i mean mvno

I switched to Redpocket from AT&T a week back and it has been really awesome. The coverage and data rates are the same as ATT. I had some jitters in the activation but the call center service was excellent. I always getting through to the service center in less than 2 minutes and the call center staff were very professional and helpful. Configuring the data plan on the phone was really easy.
