Things To Know About Red Pocket Mobile Before You Subscribe


Red Pocket Mobile is a prepaid MVNO that was founded in 2006. The company has partnered with AT&T (GSMA), T-Mobile (GSMT), and Verizon (CDMAV) to provide service and coverage to its customers. Their plans have traditionally focused on catering to those who have a need to call internationally and who speak other languages.

You don’t have to have international calling needs to subscribe to Red Pocket Mobile. Red Pocket’s phone plans are competitively priced, and can particularly be a great value to low usage customers.

Red Pocket Mobile also powers Black Wireless and Mango Mobile.

Customer Referral Program

Red Pocket offers a generous refer a friend program. Those who refer a friend earn up to a $25 account credit per each referral. The credit is awarded after the friend renews their plan for a second month.

Referral credit amounts are based on the plan the person referred subscribes to. For instance, if they sign up for the 25GB plan, the referring subscriber will get a $25 reward. If they subscribe to the 1GB plan, the referrer will get a $5 reward. A subscriber can earn a maximum of $500 per year in referrals.

Those subscribing to Red Pocket through a referral code/link will also receive the same reward credits.

Red Pocket’s Phone Plans Explained

Red Pocket Mobile Website ScreenshotRed Pocket Mobile’s phone plans are synonymous with variety. The company really offers something for everyone. There are monthly plans, annual plans, multi-month discount plans, family discount plans, data-only plans, and even global data-only plans. Some plans are sold exclusively through online retailers like eBay and Amazon.

A total of 4 monthly phone plans are sold directly through the Red Pocket website. Customers can pick from the following options:

  • $10/month – 1GB, available on AT&T and T-Mobile.

  • $20/month – 5GB, available on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon

  • $30/month – 10GB, available on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon

  • $40/month – 25GB, available on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon

Taxes and fees cost extra with each plan. There are no activation fees for single lines of service. Unless specifically stated otherwise, the plans are all available for use on the customer’s choice of either the AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon network. All plans include unlimited talk and text and international calling as well as unlimited data. Data speeds are slowed to 128Kbps for the remainder of your billing cycle after the high-speed threshold has been reached.

International texting is included with AT&T and T-Mobile-based service but costs 20c a message with Verizon-based service.

Family Plan Option

The $30 plan has a family plan option. Account holders can add up to 4 additional lines to their plan at a cost of $20/line. The multi-line discount is applied starting on the 2nd month of service. There is a $10 setup fee charged per line. No other Red Pocket plans offer group discounts.

eBay Exclusive Phone Plans Red Pocket has several eBay exclusive plans and pricing on them does frequently change as they often go on sale. There are several 360-day annual plans being offered through the outlet.

  • $2.50/month – $30 due upfront, 200 talk, 1000 texts, 200MB hard-capped data, T-Mobile only

  • $5.00/month – $60 due upfront, 100 talk, 100 texts, 500MB hard-capped data, T-Mobile and AT&T only

  • $8.25/month – $99 due upfront, 1000 talk, unlimited minutes, 1GB, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon

  • $15/month – $180 due upfront, unlimited everything with first 3GB of data each month at high-speeds. Available on T-Mobile and Verizon

  • $15/month – $180 due upfront, unlimited everything with first 5GB of data each month at high-speeds. Available on AT&T

  • $20/month – $240 due upfront, unlimited everything with first 8GB of data each month at high-speeds. Available on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon

  • $30/month – $360 due upfront, unlimited everything with first 20GB of data each month at high-speeds. Available on AT&T

The plans really are a great value for customers willing to pay for 360-days of service up front.

The talk, text and data allotments shown are what subscribers can use every 30 days before they run out. Subscribers then must either top up or wait for the next 30 day cycle for the allotments to renew.

Add-on top-ups for the low usage plans are available with the following pricing:

  • $2 – 100MB of additional data, 100 texts or 100 minutes

  • $5 – 250MB of additional data, 250 minutes or 500 texts

If you need to add a top up to your plan, keep in mind it will not rollover for the next 30-day billing cycle. It must be used up during the billing cycle that you add it to your plan or it will be forfeited in the next month.

What Plan Features Are Supported By Red Pocket Mobile

Red Pocket Mobile works on all the major networks in the USA, however, the same plan may have different features available to it depending on what network it’s being used with.

  • International text messaging – available on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint networks at no extra charge but costs $0.20 per text if your Red Pocket Mobile plan is used on Verizon’s network

  • International calling – available on all networks

  • Hotspot/Tethering – Available on all networks, but only iPhones have access on Verizon’s network. Subscribers may need to ask Red Pocket to enable hotspot on their lines for them

  • WiFi calling – available on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. Not available on Verizon. If you have a plan with a limited number of minutes and are using AT&T, WiFi calling does not deduct from your plan minutes.

  • HD Voice/VoLTE calling – available on all networks

Unfortunately there is no app available to manage accounts. Customers must login through a browser to keep tabs on their account.

Data Only Plans

Red Pocket Has Data Only PlansRed Pocket does offer 3-data only plans for use on AT&T’s network. Pricing starts at just at $10/month for a data only plan with 1GB of data. You can scroll further down below for the full list of available plan options.

Refund And Cancellation Policy

Only the eBay exclusive plans come with a very limited satisfaction guarantee. You can get a full refund for your eBay plan purchase as long as it is requested within 30-days of receiving your SIM starter kit and you have used less than 30 minutes, 30 text messages and 30 MB of data. For all other plans, no refunds will be issued if you are unhappy with service.

If you purchase a phone from Red Pocket and are unhappy with it you have within 7-days of receiving it to return it. You are responsible for return shipping charges. Customers must also pay for their own return label and a 20% restocking fee. A $25.00 handling fee will also be debited from the final return amount. Be forewarned, Red Pocket claims that a refund will not be issued if the device has been used.

Review

I took a test run of Red Pocket Mobile by subscribing to one of the company’s CDMAV (Verizon based) plans for over two months. If you are not sure if Red Pocket Mobile is for you, perhaps this review can help.


Supported Phones And BYOD Devices


You can bring your own phone to Red Pocket Mobile, although it may first need to be unlocked. Red Pocket supports devices that work on any network. They also sell iPhones in their online store, often at a discount.


Where To Buy Service Plans And SIM Cards


Red Pocket Mobile SIM cards are available in stores at Target as well as through local dealers. You can also find them on eBay and of course directly through the Red Pocket Mobile website.


How To Port Out Of Red Pocket Mobile

Porting out requires you to know your account number and pin number. For CDMAV plans, your account number is your phone number. Your PIN number is the last 4 digits of your phone number. The account number that you see in your account dashboard cannot be used for porting out. It is likely that your account number and PIN number works the same for Red Pocket Mobile's other network plans.
