frank-ru: the free month that twigby usually offers is only if someone brings their phone. the ringplus offer is good for transferring your number and you can still get a phone discount on top (if you also wanted a new phone)
I wanted a quick risk free commitment free exit out of the R+ predicament before the impending November 11 deadline. I want to give myself time to consider my options over the next few weeks and don’t want to be rushed into going with Ting. For me Ting is not a good fit.
The type of plan I wanted: Unlimited or high allotment of talk and a 1GB+ of high speed data and unlimited throttled data after the allotment is spent. I don't txt but I wanted a 50-100 txt buffer just in case. I didn’t want to pay anything and would not pay more than $1-2. No dialer, VoIP, apps or other workarounds.
Here is what I went with:
If you switch to Twigby now you get a month of service free of charge all you’ll have to pay is the taxes/fees in my(NY) case $1.50 so a month of Unlimited Talk & Text with 2GB LTE and unlimited 2G data for $1.50

The good: It’s Sprint so the switch is fast and quick, you don’t need a new SIM. The whole process is done online. Free voice and text roaming on Verizon is included. Hotspot feature is included. App for monitoring usage(Android Only).
The bad(so far): Visual voicemail is not supported.

ultimate-lavendar-houndstooth-gladiator-54876: I received a reply from twigby within 24 hours saying yes you can.
RayRay: FreedomPop is FREE for the same thing.
ultimate-lavendar-houndstooth-gladiator-54876: I mean you can change plans. I was answering the original question posted. Sorry I should have deleted the rest.
RayRay: From what I can see, 200 min and 500MB is $15.00/mo. FreedomPop is FREE for the same thing. AND they have a LIVE customer service line I can talk to not "chat" to. Why would I want TWIGBY?
wireless-golden-spotted-ladybug-932452: Might as well move one to Twigby for a free month of 2GB data.
RayRay: From what I can see, 200 min and 500MB is $15.00/mo. FreedomPop is FREE for the same thing.
Ibelieve: My experience with Freedompop, especially that stupid Voip technology was less than pleasant. I will never use them again.
energetic-onyx-matte-door-259652: I'm debating between Tello and Twigby. Cost is similar for the service that I need: 200 min, unlimited text, 500 GB. The Verizon roaming is a plus for Twigby. I noticed that Tello says "no added fees", while Twigby doesn't say anything similar. Anyone know if the taxes/fees are much different between these 2 companies?
frank-ru: so far i'm surprised how responsive their chat is
frank-ru: i'm interested to see how low they'll go
