No, in my experience they can't pull data from a flip phone. It's too bad you bought an iphone. Apple has good hardware but their customer service is nonexistant nowadays. Low battery life, software bugs, easily hacked. When you can get a motoG or E or an htc 510 for $50.......

Tracfone is okay but eats minutes like crazy, AT&T go phones are pretty good for possible rollover minutes. I'd suggest checking out Sprint, T-mobile, Verizon or page plus.

answer 1
Now a days you could use probably any carrier, all of them have come out with no contract. It ranges from 30 to 65 dollars per month for your usage depending on minutes and data.

for eg. T mobile gets you unlimited talk, text and data for 55 including taxes(approx) similar for verizon etc

If you need cheaper options go for Simple Mobile. There's lot of options available. Get any new phone or old unlocked phone you have and get connected.

I have Verizon's prepaid service, but Straight Talk is a little better, if they have that in your town. Straight Talk doesn't have the greatest phones, but they do have unlimited everything for $45 a month, while Verizon is Unlimited Talk/Text and 500 MB of data.
