Those who want to use an unlocked iPhone 5 in the US beyond AT&T have had relatively few places to go for an exodus, T-Mobile and Straight Talk usually being the two carriers on the short list. It's time to add a third: Solavei is now carrying nano-SIMs for its T-Mobile-based virtual network. There's not much mystery to what's involved after that, since you're still getting the singular, all-unlimited $49 plan and no guarantee of 3G when even T-Mobile's own spectrum refarming is still young. If you can live with those potential caveats for the sake of network and contract independence, Solavei is waiting.
SOLAVEI INTRODUCES NANO SIM CARDS FOR IPHONE 5, OFFERS UNLIMITED VOICE, TEXT AND DATA FOR JUST $49 PER MONTH
Solavei's Low-cost, Unlimited Mobile Service is Now Compatible with all Popular Smartphones
BELLEVUE, Wash. (March 6, 2013) – Solavei®, an affordable contract-free mobile service provider, today announces the availability of nano SIM cards, compatible with the iPhone 5, and widening the company's phone compatibility to include all major smartphones. For $49 per month, members can now bring popular phones such as Apple's iPhone 5, Samsung's Galaxy SIII or Google's Nexus 4 to Solavei and enjoy unlimited voice, text and data mobile service.
Anyone using an iPhone 5 can simply purchase a Solavei nano SIM Card for $9 and sign up for unlimited voice, text and data for only $49 per month. For members looking to switch to Apple's latest iPhone, Solavei's mobile phone partner, GSM Nation, offers a range of unlocked pre-configured phones with six month no interest, no payment financing. Members with iPhones on Solavei service in the newly HSPA+ expanded areas will receive the highest data speeds, and unlike some other no-contract wireless providers, Solavei offers 4GB of high-speed data.
Launched September 2012, Solavei has become one of the fastest growing mobile services companies and, in just five months, has paid out more than $6.5 million to its members for sharing great mobile service with others.
"We created Solavei to make commerce less expensive for our members while allowing the flexibility to use the mobile phone they love," said Ryan Wuerch, founder and CEO of Solavei. "Solavei is the first company to create an economic linkage between mobile service, social commerce, and social sharing. We believe it's important to give our members great value for unlimited mobile service while using their favorite mobile phone and enable them to earn recurring monthly income for sharing Solavei with their friends and family."
How Solavei Works
Solavei is a cost-effective mobile phone service with no obligation to share or sign up others. Members who choose to use Solavei's powerful social commerce platform to share the Solavei opportunity with their friends and family can use the money to offset their monthly mobile bill and even have the opportunity to generate recurring monthly income. At its simplest, the plan allows members to earn $20 per month for every three members (called a "Trio") they or someone directly connected to them signs up for mobile service. When members have three Trios, the income generated is greater than their monthly plan cost of $49, essentially making their mobile service free. The more members in a person's network, the more income earned.
"As a teacher, I'm always looking for additional streams of income to get ahead and help pay bills," said Jason Reeves, Solavei member from Atlanta. "With Solavei, I'm able to use my iPhone at a much better price than before – free. By simply sharing Solavei with my friends, I've positively impacted their lives and mine."
