Pure TalkUSA, an MVNO that runs on AT&T’s strong network, offers a small catalog of Android phones, including the Google Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy S10. Apple fans may be disappointed by the lack of iPhones, but you can always bring an unlocked one to Pure TalkUSA.
Pure TalkUSA only allows you to buy your phone outright, which may be a hindrance for someone looking to purchase a newer phone like the Samsung Galaxy S10+ or the Google Pixel 3. Fortunately, this AT&T MVNO offers some older models that are a fraction of the price of these newer models.

How to Buy a New Phone on Pure TalkUSA
The only way to purchase a new Pure TalkUSA phone is to buy it outright. You simply choose the phone you want, add it to your cart, then choose the Pure TalkUSA plan you want to sign up for (they range from 1GB of data to unlimited). Once you do that, you’ll proceed to checkout, where you will pay for the phone in full plus the first month of the service plan. Pure TalkUSA doesn’t charge you any taxes or shipping fees.
BYOD to Pure TalkUSA
You can bring any phone to Pure TalkUSA as long as it’s GSM-compatible and unlocked (AT&T or T-Mobile phones fall into the GSM category). You can always check your phone’s compatibility here. You’ll just need your IMEI code, which for iPhones can be found by going to Settings > General > About, then scrolling down. For Android phones, go to Settings > About Phone > Status, then scroll down.
