Red Pocket Verizon LTE service now available, eBay is offering it on the One Year $199 Plan
Red Pocket Mobile that operates on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon network has finally started offering LTE on Verizon. Red Pocket Verizon LTE-based service plan has been offered by eBay on a $199 one year plan. The plan includes 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 1000 megabytes of data with first 500 MB at high speeds. With its purchase customers get activation kit with SIM cards “dual cut and nano GSMA and a CDMA LTE triple punch SIM card” and activation PIN, which allows them to choose the network that suits them the best.
The One Year $199 Plan is eBay exclusive and it’s offered by official eBay Store, redpocketstore. Customers who need more than 1000 texts can choose a $229 per year plan that has 1000 minutes, unlimited texts and 1000 MB of data with first 500 MB at high speeds. For those who need to add more minutes, texts or data during a year, there are add-ons available for $10 and $15 per month:
- $10 add-on includes 500 voice minutes or 500 texts or 500 MB of high speeds data
- $15 add-on includes 1000 voice minutes or 1000 texts or 1000 MB of high speeds data
Add-ons do not rollover, they expire after a month.
The eBay exclusive Red Pocket one year plan works with “nearly any AT&T compatible, T-Mobile compatible (if unlocked), unlocked GSM, Sprint compatible or other CDMA device.” Since Verizon doesn’t allow its MVNOs to clarify that the service they offer is Verizon’s, the best way to confirm it is to go on stores.ebay.com/Red-Pocket-Store, scroll down to get to the coverage section, press ‘See Our Coverage’ than CDMA 4G LTE and finally Verizon coverage map.
In addition, Red Pocket Mobile might soon add LTE on their Verizon-based service plans as well, according to Howard Forums users. There will be two new LTE plans while at first, the 29.99 and lower priced plans and Paygo will remain 3G and unchanged. The new Red Pocket Verizon LTE plans will be:
- $36.99 plan – unlimited talk and text with 1GB 4G LTE data
- $52.99 plan – unlimited talk and text with 3GB 4G LTE data
Red Pocket has been offering LTE on AT&T and Sprint network for some time now and even on T-Mobile-based service that’s no longer offered. It’s about time that Red Pocket adds LTE speeds to Verizon –based plans. It’s over a year since Verizon has allowed access to its own prepaid customers. TracFone’s Straight Talk and Net10 were among the first Verizon MVNOs who got it, while Page Plus has started offering it few months after Verizon prepaid. Selectel and even newbie Puppy Wireless that operates since November 2014 have received the access to Verizon LTE data recently.
Although probably very anxious to get it by now, Red Pocket customers on Verizon service should wait for the official announcement of LTE launch and how things look right now, that day is very close.
