Any RedPocket cell service users here?

Been eyeing them as an alternative to my Xfinity mobile service that I'm likely needing to switch away from soon. They seem to be priced pretty attractively, but I feel like I've read enough stories about @#$%& customer service that I'm hesitating. Any anecdotes that may convince me that RP is a reasonable low-cost option for mobile service? I would likely go with the CDMA/Verizon network.

I see deals from them from time to time on slick deals. Seeing a $99/year, 1000min/unl txt/1gb data plan available right now that would be just about perfect for my needs:

I welcome any thoughts. Thanks!

I suspect RedPocket does not have any towers but is using Verizon or ATT or... I'd find out what they use before making a switch.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

I use them but with the ATT network. I've been very happy with the service and the price and haven't needed to talk to their customer service.

They're just a reseller/MVNO, like many other carriers. I don't have an issue with that. They offer plans on all major networks (ATT, Verizon, T-mobile, etc). For a super low user like me, spending $20/month or more just feels like a waste. That's why this $99/yr option seems just about perfect for my needs.

awesome. thanks for sharing.

I don't have any illusions that any provider is 100% perfect/trouble-free. I've worked through my fair share of issues with providers over the years. It's good to hear that some are having good experiences with them.

I welcome any other experiences.

I switched my son over to them about 3-4 years ago. No issues once we got his phone number ported over. Getting the number ported was a bit of an ordeal, but I think that had more to do with his prior provider (Virgin Mobile) than with RedPocket.
