Byo Wireless gives 50 percent off first month of service and a free SIM
Byo Wireless that operates on Verizon and T-Mobile network is offering a promotion that gives 50 percent off of first month of service to customers who activate their phone with a FIFTYOFF promo code. Also, Byo Wireless gives a free SIM card to customers who bring their own GSM phone.
Byo Wireless was Verizon MVNO since it launched, in December 2013. The carrier has added T-Mobile’s GSM-based service a year later, in December 2014. On Verizon network, customers have no access to LTE while on T-Mobile’s, LTE is available. Also, Byo Wireless offers the same monthly plans for both services that start at $5 per month. The plans are:
- $5 plan includes 100 voice minutes, 100 texts and 20 MB of data
- $10 plan includes 250 voice minutes, 250 texts and 50 MB of data
- $15 plan includes 350 voice minutes, unlimited texts and 100 MB of data
- $20 plan includes 500 voice minutes, unlimited texts and 500 MB of data
- $35 plan includes 1000 voice minutes, unlimited texts and 1 GB of data
- $55 plan includes unlimited talk, unlimited texts and 3 GB of data
- $70 plan includes unlimited talk, unlimited texts and 5 GB of data
Customers who choose to pay their monthly bills automatically will get double data for free with all plans. Even with auto pay, customers can change their plans every month but also can turn this feature on or off whenever they want. Byo Wireless supports BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Its plans do not include taxes and fees so plans’ monthly rates can be higher from 7% to 16% each month.
Additional minutes, texts and MB are also available. Customers can add 1000 texts or 250MB of data for $5; 2000 texts or 500MB of data for $10 and 500 voice minutes or 4000 texts or 1 GB of data for $15 per month. Add-ons do not rollover.
It’s unknown how long Byo Wireless is planning to offer 50 percent off of first month of service and a free SIM promotions, so hurry up if they suit your needs.
Byo Wireless is not the only prepaid carrier to offer service on multiple networks. TracFone’s subsidiaries Straight Talk and Net10 are offering service on four major networks for years while Red Pocket has joined them only recently, in August 2014. Rok Mobile operates on T-Mobile and Sprint network. Consumer Cellular has also added T-Mobile’s service to AT&T’s while Ting that’s been on Sprint since its launch has now added GSM service on T-Mobile. Offering more options to customers regarding coverage is always a good thing especially if GSM and CDMA can coexist on the same account or if plan goodies can be shared between two or more services like with Ting.
