"cutting the cord" on a postpaid wireless carrier

said by PX Eliezer7:

said by JoeSchmoe007:

Another option for light users is Page Plus Cellular (MVNO on Verizon network) - $80 card gives you 2,000 minutes, doesn't expire for a year

I already said that, Joe.

But the only reason I'm writing now is to note that the 2,000 minute card to which you refer usually is not available directly from Page Plus, but it is from dealers such as Kitty Wireless and others.

That's a better value than T-Mobile's $100 for 1,000 minutes per year.

Do unused minutes roll over to the next year?

T-Mobile.com online exclusive 30$/month Monthly4G plan with 5GB of data at 4G speeds, together with the free wifi hotspot (thanks to the unlocked Google Nexus)

This plan also includes 100 minutes of talk time per month.

SIM and Micro SIM cards are available for $0.99 on T-Mobile's web site.

No, 365 days.

There's also a trivial service fee of 50 cents a month, so for the year it's actually $ 86 for the 2000 minutes.

PagePlus has lower value cards which are (such as $ 10 or $20) which cost more per minute, and which are good for 120 days.

They [do] also have data plans at pretty good rates. Again, it is advantageous to use a Page Plus dealer like Kitty, they often have options not offered by the company itself. And again, it's riding on the Verizon Wireless network.

As an additional data point for PagePlus, I use a smartphone (Palm Pixi +) with data disabled on my account to eliminate data charges. I have all the goodies for free when Wi-Fi is available.
As an additional data point for no paid carrier, I use an Optimus T (I think an Optimus V or S would also work) without an account (911 still works). When Wi-Fi is available I have full internet connectivity along with Google Voice via GrooVe IP.

Sorry, but PX E is incorrect - unused minutes on Page Plus roll over to the next year IF you refill before the year is up - I know this for a fact. This is a general rule for all Page Plus pay-per-minute refills - if you refill before expiration date your balance rolls over. They also have monthly plans and there is no rollover for monthly plans.

He was correct about $0.50/month fee to keep your account active.

You are correct. Sorry for the mistake.
