Id say ATT and Verizon networks are pretty on par. Ive been to places where ATT has no service but Verizon does, and Ive also been to places where Verizon has no service but ATT does (I live in Southern California).

Now, that being said, you could be in one of those areas where Verizon works well but ATT doesnt. Wont know without testing it out.

I would recommend signing up for a $30 2GB plan (when you use up 2GB you just get slowed down, you still can use it). 2GB should be plenty for testing.

Pop out your Verizon sim, and pop in Cricket sim. Use it for the month as you would normally use your phone, if you are satisfied move over all lines. If not then all it takes is for you to pop the old Verizon sim back in and you are back to how it was before you did anything.

Currently you can get Cricket sim from Amazon for $5, or BestBuy for $10.

yes this would cost you $35-$40 for the month. But if its a success then you will be saving a lot more than that per month.

PS - I dont know anything about Red Pocket Mobile, but I would test it out with actual Cricket since that is what you are considering changing over to.

Also if you do sign up, visit stickied thread and use one of the promo links, it will give you $25 after 60 days and the person who's link you used $25 as well. That will cancel out the cost of sim cards for you ($5 a piece from Amazon).

Does anyone have a phone without a data plan?

I'm looking to get a US number just to slap on my CV - so I might take calls on it but not really use it. Trying to find the best prepaid plan (is there a subreddit for that?)

I'm looking at stuff like this atm:

Here's a link to the sim on Amazon. Make sure when you order you're ordering from Amazon themselves not a 3rd party seller. I just activated one of these a few days ago and it worked fine.

I just switched a few months ago from AT&T, on my own, because of the same reasons. I went to the store, and they said it would be $15 per line activation fee. I was looking to switch over 4 lines with 4 unlocked & fully owned phones.

I said thank you, and headed home to price Cricket SIM cards on Amazon. I bought 4 of these guys, at the time, for $5 each. When they arrived, I simply went through the activation process through the website for each one. I didn't do anything with my AT&T account, although I did have to provide my AT&T account number, password, and PIN during the setup.

Once I ported over the first (main) line, I verified everything worked, and it was instant. Calling/texting/data all worked great on Cricket as it did before. Then I went through the add a line process, and repeated for each of the next 3 phones. I was careful to do just one at a time and verify it worked before attempting the next. Also, they ended up charging me 4 different times, each time I added a line, which in the end, ended up to be the expected $100 total. That wasn't clear that's how it was going to be done, but no strange charges at all, it was pretty straight forward looking back. The entire porting process on my own through the website was maybe an hour.

A couple things to keep in mind though. If purchasing random SIM cards online, there is a slight chance they could be expired/used. Keep that in mind when ordering, maybe even purchase an extra or two, which still ends up being cheaper than $60 activation fees in-store.

Also, timing is important. I had no interaction with AT&T during the whole process. Your AT&T profile/account will remain active, but eventually the lines will be dropped once the porting is complete. Even though I switched to Cricket on (technically) the day the next billing cycle began for AT&T, they still felt the need to charge me full month of service. After the nasty "Pay us now" letters and emails, I contacted them through web chat to sort it all out, and they cancelled out the amount. (A fine lesson in why you never set up auto-pay with any company)

Also, also... If you're looking to get the referral bonus for signing up... You need to submit an email and claim a referral code BEFORE you do anything with your lines. Then after you create your account and port phone lines, you can claim that referral bonus. I made the mistake of claiming a referral code AFTER I signed up for the account, and it just simply does not work. Cricket buries this information deep, and only after you are left scratching your head why you don't get your free money for signing up, will you find out the real reason why.

You do have to get a new SIM. Unfortunately, unlike Sprint, you can't reuse your previous SIMs but you can get them for a much cheaper price than $10 which is straight up a ripoff. You can get them for $4 w/free shipping on Amazon if you have Prime.

$4.99 through Amazon right now. And you don't need the IMEI to buy the SIM, just to activate it.
