8 reasons to switch to a Red Pocket Mobile annual plan during Cyber Week

Cyber Week is here! There’s no better time to switch to a no-contract annual phone plan from Red Pocket. Red Pocket has great rates all year round, but things get really special during the holidays. 

We’re super excited to kick off Cyber Week with some special deals for new and existing customers.

In case you haven’t met us yet, hello! We’re Red Pocket, and we’ve been offering unique, contract-less phone service since 2006. We’re an all-American company based in California, and we got into this business because we believe that cellular service needs to be more human. 

We prioritize keeping our rates cost-effective and keeping our customer service efficient and personal. But don’t just take our word for it — peek around our site or our TrustPilot profile, and you will find that we have kept our promises to millions of satisfied customers over the years. We hope you’ll stick around to get to know us, and we’re happy to get to know you.


Cyber Week Offers on Annual Plans

From November 28th through December 2nd, new and returning customers can save up to 50% off select annual plans when they activate a new line on a 360-day plan. These select plans are compatible with AT&T’s network (GSMA), and pricing for these plans starts at only $5/month per line. To get in on this awesome deal, you’ll need a new line activation. This offer can not be combined with other deals, and standard pricing will renew after 360 days. 

During Cyber Week, you can get:

 No matter how much data you need this year, we have a plan for that. 


What makes Red Pocket different from the rest?

You might be thinking, “That’s too good to be true!” “They must be cutting corners to get prices that low”’ or “Surely there’s some fine print I’m missing that will make this more expensive later” Thankfully, the answer to all of these questions is simply no.  

You can get the same ultra-fast speeds from a prepaid unlimited plan that you can from your traditional contract phone plan because it’s still using the same networks as major carriers. 

So why switch? Why Red Pocket? Here are 8 reasons you’ll love Red Pocket Mobile more than other carriers. 

1. Red Pocket’s Network

The GSMA network offers the broadest, most comprehensive coverage in the U.S. No matter where you’re located, this network has you covered.  This network offers growing 5G compatibility in urban areas and has extended 4G LTE coverage into rural areas. 

When you switch to an annual plan with Red Pocket, you’ll get a new SIM card in the mail that will be compatible with any type of mobile device, even Google phones. 

We’ll also send you the tool you need to install the SIM card in your phone. To activate your SIM card in minutes, just follow our online instructions, and you’re good to go. Your first prepaid month of cellular service will automatically begin. 

Switching to a new cellular provider has never been easier.

There are many ways an annual no-contract prepaid phone plan from Red Pocket is different from traditional phone plans, but these are some of our favorites.

2. Super-low rates for smaller limit plans

Check out some of our super-low rates (available for a limited time only) based on how much (or how little) data you need in your annual plan. Plans start at just $2.50 per month for 200 minutes, 1000 texts, and 200 MBs of data when you pay annually.  

If you’ve been considering stepping away from your traditional carrier, now is the best time. No-contract phone plans offer better flexibility, and Red Pocket prides itself on offering superior customer service. It’s no hassle to switch, you can keep your existing device and existing phone number. 

3. Wide Range of Eligible Devices

Our plans work with nearly every smartphone! If you plan to bring your own device, be sure it’s unlocked and eligible. This means that your previous wireless contract is over, and that account remains in good standing with the previous carrier, with no outstanding balance on your old contract. 

We also send you the tool you need to install the SIM card in your phone. To activate your SIM card in minutes, just follow our online instructions, and you’re good to go. Your first prepaid month of cellular service will automatically begin. 

If your mobile device is currently under another contract, has been reported lost or stolen, or your account with your current provider has been suspended for non-payment, it cannot be activated on a new plan with Red Pocket. 

Regardless of our amazing sale prices, you'll have to come back when you have an eligible device or decide to purchase one from us. 

4. It’s Kinder to Your Wallet

Even when we’re not offering our amazing Cyber Week discounts, Red Pocket’s plan costs will always be lower than the major carriers. We were founded on the principle of affordability, and that’s something you can always count on from Red Pocket. 

We don’t have the same overhead costs as the major carriers since we don’t maintain and expand our networks — we leave that to the giant companies, and our customers still benefit.

5. There Are No Hidden Fees

We’re committed to affordability, and that includes rejecting hidden or surprise fees. We’ll leave overage fees or activation fees to the other guys. 

We don’t charge extra for international calling, so you can stay connected to your far-away friends for no extra cost, and we don’t force you into pricey bundles of things you don't need. 

The price you see listed on your plan is the price you pay. 

6. Stay Flexible With No Contract

No contract means no penalties if you decide you need to leave. 

We don’t subject our users to early termination fees — we’re so confident you’ll want to stick with us, that we don’t feel the need to penalize you into staying. 

No contract also means you can switch up your plan whenever you want. If you find that you need more or less data on your plan than you originally planned, it’s no problem. You can adjust your plan accordingly. 

Want to add a line to an existing plan? That’s no problem, either. 

7. No Credit Checks

Because our plans are all prepaid, we don’t run any credit checks against our customers. This means no matter what your credit score may be, you won’t be denied service, and it will not impact the price you pay. 

Your credit will never stop you from being eligible to receive our service or our deals on new devices. 

8. Better Customer Service 

This is another way Red Pocket sets itself apart from other cell phone service providers. We know how unpleasant it is to feel like just a number instead of a person, and we think that excessively long phone queues are bad for everyone.

We want you to have a pleasant experience every time you call, so our customer service experience is designed with you in mind. 

But despite all of those differences, there are some things about Red Pocket that will remain exactly the same. 

You can expect the same broad coverage and the same super-fast speeds you’ve come to expect from major carriers. This is because we use the exact same cellular network as those major carriers. 

We also make it easy to keep the same phone number and the same device you had before. You won’t notice a single change in your daily cell service, but you’ll notice a big difference when you check your bills or when you come to us for help.

Cyber Week Offers on Monthly Plans

If you’re sure an annual plan isn’t the best choice for you (despite its maximum savings), you can always get a great discount on our monthly plans as well. 

For new customers only, all of our monthly Unlimited Everything plans will be available for an introductory rate of just $10. These plans are available on any network (GSMA, GSMT, or CDMA), so you can choose the network that’s best for you.

These great deals on our monthly plans will only be around from November 28th to December 2nd, so you have to jump on this deal while it’s around. Plans will renew at the standard rate of $20 to 50 after your existing plan ends. 

If you’ve been considering a prepaid monthly plan with Red Pocket and you’re ready to become a new customer, now is the perfect time to shop our monthly plans

Check out these great rates, and get ready to save:

We said it, and we meant it: Any of these Unlimited Everything plans, just $10. Now that’s holiday magic. 

Monthly vs. Annual Phone Plans

How can you tell which type of plan is right for you? Both plans offer comprehensive coverage nationwide and are available with unlimited talk, text, and data. 

While you use your device, there won’t be a difference in user experience depending on your plan’s span. So, ask yourself about your needs on a month-by-month basis, especially your budget needs. 

Do you anticipate your needs varying from month to month? Are you skeptical of no-contract phone plans and want to try them for a month before signing up for an annual plan? Then a monthly plan might be the best choice for you. 

Do you want to get maximum savings? Are you pretty confident in your data needs for this year? Then you should peruse our annual plans. Even if your data needs change throughout the year, you can add to your plan whenever you need. 

If you need a family plan, our family plans are available on both monthly and annual scales, so the choice is still yours. Our family plans also include Unlimited Everything. You can even have different lines on the same plan connected to different networks. 

Our family plans are highly customizable, and you can even build your own plan to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want.

Major carriers are focusing their holiday deals on their devices and largely not offering discounts at all on their contract plans — much less their occasional prepaid plans. Because those carriers favor their contract clients, so you’re much better off shopping with alternative carriers like Red Pocket if you’re in the market for a prepaid plan. We’ll prioritize your service, and you won’t be missing out; the major carriers’ deals are lackluster, to say the least. 

Red Pocket isn’t going to make you read between the lines of deceptive deals or surprise you with price hikes in the middle of your plan. We want you to know what you’re getting upfront so that you can stay within your budget. 

Cyber Week Phone Deals

Whether you’re shopping for a new iPhone, Android, or Google Pixel, Red Pocket is excited to offer some of the best Cyber Week phone deals around. Is last year’s phone still in good shape? Consider doing a trade-in for an even steeper discount on your new phone.

Apple Phones

As part of our Cyber Week Sale, we have a special offer on iPhones when you make the switch. 

You could save up to a whopping $429 through monthly credits to your plan when you purchase any unlocked iPhone from Red Pocket. The credits will be applied over a 24-month period, and your new iPhone will be able to utilize any of our networks (GSMA, GSMT, or CDMA). 

The number one plan you should be looking at is our $50 Unlimited Everything plan, which offers savings of $17.89 per month over 24 months — and you’ve already heard that it’s available on its own for an introductory rate of just $10. It’s 5G compatible, and you get 100GB of high-speed data, not to mention unlimited talk and text. 

This is our most popular plan all year, and right now, you can get it for a steal. But hurry, this iPhone offer is only available from November 28th to December 2nd. 

So, now that you know Red Pocket has a great plan to suit your budget, the next question is, which Apple iPhone are you dreaming of? Red Pocket always has great iPhone deals to choose from, but here are some highlights this season.

Other Products

One way we help you save money is by not forcing you into bundles you don’t want. However, if you’re looking for an affordable way to get at-home internet for your laptop or tablet without the hassle of traditional providers, consider a hotspot like our Franklin Wireless R717 for just $60.

Shop Red Pocket

No need to venture out into the cold to a brick-and-mortar retailer to fight with strangers over in-store-only deals like last year. (Although, if you’re into that, Red Pocket is accessible at both Best Buy and Walmart, but our best deals are available online!) 

When it comes to starting the new year off with the right phone on the right plan for your budget, Amazon can’t help you. Instead, use Red Pocket as your one-stop online shop!

We’re ready to start the season of celebrations by celebrating our returning and new customers alike. If you’re still stuck with a contract plan from your old carrier, and you’re not sure how to get out, check out our resources on canceling your current plan from major carriers. If you’re a returning customer, thank you for sticking with us! 

Whether it’s a new phone for mom, a new iPad for the kids, or a new unlimited plan for everyone in your family, get your holiday shopping done at Red Pocket.

Shop online all through Cyber Week, to get a hold of these amazing deals. Happy shopping!
