Is Red Pocket Mobile stable, business wise?

YouMail is not only on Cydia, but the Apple app store as well, see for yourself .

It is worth it for the "hangup" notification alone.
check out straight talk....only $45/month.

i'm not worried about it...i ported my number to google voice when i left AT&T. you could do the same if you are worried about it...google voice is awesome.

Just wondering how many different APN settings are there for Red Pocket Mobile/Stargate?

My service seems to suffer in my apartment and various locations. I was thinking perhaps I can remedy the problem by changing APNs. Also, do you think that because I have a Stargate sim and Stargate carrier name, that my service quality is different than those with Red Pocket sims?

Hey all

Looking into Redpocket for my wife.

So what needs to be changed for MMS to work? Is there anyway to do this without a JB?

Any other issues I should know about?

Thanks

Wait, how will it work on an unlocked Vzw or sprint 4S?

Can anyone confirm this? I have a unlocked Verizon 4S and although I've only tried once, and it was before my restore after the unlock had been issued, i still don't see it working.

Note I didn't use a red pocket sim, only a hand cut sim from family mobile. Will have to try again.
The GSM sim slot unlock for Verizon and Sprint is for international carriers only, not for US carriers, so it will not work.

How long ago did you submit the request. For me(switching from h2o) I called my previous carrier and asked if they received a port request and to allow it. Not to long after that, I ported my number

Out of interest does Red Pocket support LTE yet and also does it show up as 4G when on HSPA+ on an iPhone?

Swithed to Red Pocket on Friday, loving it so far. Getting the same download speeds as I did on AT&T and the same service, and for half the price I was paying before, cannot beat it.

The thing about Google voice is not being able to use the native SMS app to send texts out of.

you can man. you just have to save that unique google voice number that google assigns to all your friends numbers. Once you save that with the contact info just text that number instead of your friends real phone number.

This, but it is kind of a PITA, especially if you have a large contact list. I only have a handful of them so not too difficult to go back and add a "GV" tag with each contacts "GV" assigned number.

I ordered my Red Pocket SIMS on Amazon for 80 each (beats paying $20 on their website) and so far I have no complaints. I ported my number from GoPhone because of AT&T's smartphone restrictions and my Android phone's working just fine on RPM. I plan on switching to an iPhone, so I'll update my experience then but this is definitely a worthwhile consideration if you don't wanna pay $100+ just for a phone.

Best to use either an AT&T one or an unlocked GSM one. THe Verizon models I believe have US carriers blocked out, so the SIM cards would be rejected every time....then its a whole unlocking and jail breaking mess all over again.

IF you don't call internationally then your best bet is Straight Talk, They have been around for a long time(owned by Tracfone) $15 cheaper+they do have international texting as well(don't abuse obviously) plus about 1.5-2GB Data(before they get upset)

yep, just tested my new h2o acc & my 3g throttled at 1mb vs att's 5mb at the same spot before, but ... no other mvno has that sweet $25/m plan ... yes you only get 80mb with that, but i already have LTE mywi with verizon from work

yes, h2o phone customer service sucks, although ... their on-line chat is not bad (1-2 min) ... again, i'm saving $600/year ... as in new iPhone every year

but i'll keep hot pocket in mind if h2o doesn't work out

Jailbreak then adjust the APN settings, quite simple really. BTW Red Pocket adjusted the $39.99 monthly plan I have been getting, you now get 25mb of data instead of the 10mb, the unlimited voice/text remains un-changed.

I am using a sprint 4s with straight talk and it works perfect. I unlocked using r-sim and after jailbreaking and adjusting apn settings I got data and mms working. 3G coverage is the same as if I were on AT&T and you just can't beat $45 for unlimited everything.

H2o was doing just fine and then they dropped the ball, they changed the terms of their plans no longer offering unlimited DATA, and the call quality is not that great at night time for some odd reason < i get one bar of service, now my question is doesnt red pocket use the same network as h2o? I dont want to experience the same horrible call quality
