Scratch Wireless improves Voice and Data mobile passes
Sprint MVNO Scratch Wireless has started its operations in October 2013 by offering free mobile and SMS service using Wi-Fi networks. The carrier has improved its Voice and Data mobile passes that can be purchased through the app on the phone and that allow more flexibility to users when they are out off Wi-Fi reach. Voice and data passes are optional, they can be added when and if needed unlike with other free service providers as FreedomPop, TextNow or Republic Wireless.
Following the phone habits of its users, Scratch Wireless has improved existing passes and added a new option for voice and data:
Cellular Voice Passes:
- $1.99 – valid for 24 hours with unlimited talk
- $6.99 – valid for 30 days with 100 minutes of talk time
- $14.99 – valid for 30 days with unlimited talk
Cellular Data Passes:
- $1.99 – valid for 24 hours with unlimited data
- $14.99 – valid for 30 days with 500 MB of data
- $24.99 – valid for 30 days with unlimited data
Great thing about this is that texting remains free regardless of your connection, whether you are on Wi-Fi or on Sprint network.
“We recognize that our customers have different lifestyles, and as a result, have different voice and data needs,” said Alan Berrey, CEO of Scratch Wireless. “Our new passes are meant to better match these needs, with the goal to completely transform how consumers think about wireless service and eliminate their expensive and totally unnecessary monthly cell phone bills.”
Scratch Wireless is still offering only one Android smartphone compatible with its service, Motorola Photon Q for $269. The Motorola Photo Q is an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean smartphone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 4.3-inch (540×960) qHD display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capture and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone also has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot for expanding memory up to 32 GB, LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro HDMI and GPS. The Photo Q is powered by a 1785 mAh battery that provides up to 7.5 hours of talk time and up to 220 hours of standby time.
