Red Pocket has always had an extremely complicated plan lineup that featured around 17 plans scattered across five categories. There were pay-as-you-go options and unlimited options and everything in between. However, it looks like the company has finally decided to simplify things a bit.
Effective immediately, Red Pocket now only has two plans: a $10 Essentials Plan, and a $19 Unlimited Plan, which can be customized to include as much or as little data as you need.
The $10 Essentials plan is designed as an alternative for pay-as-you-go plans. The plan comes with 500 minutes, 500 texts, and 100 MB of data. From there, users can add on additional minutes, texts, and data in the following increments:
- 500 minutes, 500 texts, or 500 MB – $10
- 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts, or 1 GB – $15
For users who need a bit more, the $19 Unlimited plan includes unlimited minutes and texts. It also comes with 100 MB of 4G LTE data which is hard-capped. Data can be upgraded to include unlimited low speed and the following allotments of high speed:
- 500 MB – $6
- 1 GB – $11
- 3 GB – $26
- 5 GB – $41
Red Pocket also offers a $5 discount for unlimited plan customers who sign up for auto-refill.
From what I can tell, it doesn’t look like anything else has changed. All of the unlimited plan options still come with unlimited international calling to 72 countries, and customers can still activate their own compatible devices.
As far as value, these new plans are 1000% better than the super complicated older plans, so I highly recommend that all Red Pocket users make the switch to the newer plans. There are only a couple plans that might use a bit of data, but add-ons are available if you need that little extra. All in all, definitely a positive switch.
