    Which AT&T MVNO For A Minimum Amount Of Service For A Year?

    A year ago, I bought a years's worth of service on AT&T for about $50. Are there any deals like that right now? I don't really care about data and I don't even need that many minutes. It is pretty much just a back up plan.

    The best I have seen is Goodtogo Mobile. $10.00 a month with autopay for unlimited talk and text no data. They are on AT&T.

    I don't see it on the Tracfone website.
    My smartphone is a lot smarter than I am.

    It's not on the TF website. Click the row on prepaidcompare.net for details.

    This is the plan:

    In prepaidcompare.net click on the line of the plan and it will show details. That one says, "Plan Notes: Only available from TracFone eBay Store."

    The plans in the eBay store change from time to time.

    The Tracfone offer is a great deal for a backup. Compared to typical 'monthly' plans small allotments that disappear each month whether you use them or not, these are annual plans. The allotments can be used as needed throughout the year. Good method for a backup/emergency line.

    An alternative, this Red Pocket plan has 100 minutes, 100 texts, 500mb, renewing monthly for a year. Maybe better if you need some data access on a regular basis, but less useful as an emergency plan for calls/texts.

    Keep in mind that this product is a "pre-loaded" SIM. To get the service time and units you have to activate the SIM. There is no separate service card that could be applied to an existing account.

    You may be able to activate the new SIM with a transfer of phone number, service time and service units from an existing account. One of the reviews reported problems getting TF to do the transfer.

    I agree with you. If you don't care about data, Tracfone offers 365 days of service talk only plans, which are suitable as backup plans. you can see more information in Tracfone plans.

    surprised nobody mentioned truphone yet

    With truephone, the sim costs $30 but you get $15 credit on the count, that never expires if you use it (I believe) once every 180 days.
    Outgoing calls and texts are 9c, incoming calls and texts are free

    Yes that is a good one for very low use. Tru was my first smartphone service and I still have it five years later for backup. Note the data is 9 cents a MB. I have not used much at $90/GB. I keep mine going with a billable outgoing text every couple of months. Posts in the Truphone topic say that they don't enforce the 180 day inactivity limit as long as you don't allow your deposit balance to go to zero.

    It uses AT&T and possibly some regional carriers in the US. It requires a carrier unlocked phone. It does not do MMS if that is important to anyone. The number may not be allowed by some financial institutions and other things for 2FA texts.

    I get the annual FreedomPop sims at Bestbuy when they go on sale for $40. Even at the regular $50 price, they are pretty cheap.

    I had the red pocket $60 year plan (100min/100texts/500mb) plan last year and it worked like a charm. Kept it in my 2016 iPhone SE.
