Question

Any Prepaid Phones With Internet Access?

I'm looking for a prepaid smartphone that has access to the internet so I use the Uber app.

I'm interested in paying for minutes/usage upfront and do want any reoccurring bills.

Anyone have any experiences?

Here in the USA there are too many choices for that.

From Walmart to AT&T and others the problem here is overchoice. Your common smart phone from Tracfone can do this. You refill it with the usual refill card or pay on their web site. This isn't the only one and it would take me hours to list them all.

I'm going to mention what I use anyway since it's been cheaper than what others use. I'm using a smart phone (nod to CNET for shopping that one) and TING.COM. For my wife and I we pay about 22 dollars a month for 2 lines. When we traveled and used the data a lot our bill went to 35 dollars for that month and then went back down to under 22 dollars the next month.

Re: phone

The phone doesn't matter. You buy a prepay SIM-card in stead of a SIM-card that comes with a subscription and it should work.

Answer
I use Tracfone

I just added another year+month service time to my wife's phone, for less than $70. She had plenty of time, data, text still on it. If you only want added service time, the best deal is to buy a month of all for $30 and then for about $40-50, and after which appears an option to add a year extra time option to it. Cheaper than the entire yearly rate if you still have plenty of data, minutes, and texts left over. So, her cost is about $5.40 per month use since she had plenty of everything else needed rolled over for this year. Her phone is a Samsung J8 as I recall, which is nice enough.

Answer
Prepaid/postpaid

I use AT&T, as for me, it works fine and the price is also good. I'm planning to try postpaid mobile virtual network.
Now choosing between Consumer cellular and Azercell. Maybe someone knows which one is better?
