BYO Wireless adds new $25 unlimited talk and text plan, discontinues $15 plan
T-Mobile and Verizon MVNO BYO Wireless has recently introduced changes to its prepaid plan offerings that include adding, discontinuing and changing monthly plans. However, the carrier hasn’t added expected support for Verizon LTE that Verizon MVNO Selectel added few days ago and that Puppy Wireless is in the process of getting. BYO Wireless adds new $25 unlimited talk and text plan and discontinues the $15 plan that was offering 350 voice minutes, unlimited texts and 100 MB of data. BYO has also changed $35 plan that included 1000 voice minutes, unlimited texts and 1 GB of data to $40 plan with unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of data per month.
After the changes, BYO Wireless plans offer:
- $5 plan – 100 voice minutes, 100 texts and 20 MB of data
- $10 plan – 250 voice minutes, 250 texts and 50 MB of data
- $20 plan – 500 voice minutes, unlimited texts and 500 MB of data
- $25 plan – unlimited talk and text – new
- $40 plan – unlimited talk, unlimited texts and 1 GB of data
- $55 plan – unlimited talk, unlimited texts and 3 GB of data
- $70 plan – unlimited talk, unlimited texts and 5 GB of data
Customers who sigh in to auto pay will get a 5% off of their monthly bill each month. Previous double data offer when on auto pay is discontinued. BYO Wireless do not include taxes and fees in the cost of plans so monthly rates could be higher from 7% to 16% each month.
More voice minutes, texts and MB of data can be purchased additionally: 1000 texts or 250MB of data for $5; 2000 texts or 500MB for $10 and 500 voice minutes or 4000 texts or 1 GB of data for $15 per month.
According to users on Howard Forums, customers who are on the $15 and $35 plan will not be able to keep the plans and will have to choose a new plan from the ones that are available.
To customers who bring their own phone to activate with BYO, the carrier is offering 50% off of their first month of service with a FIFTYOFF code. SIM cards for GSM handsets are free.
