Apple iPhone 5

Less than a month after adding the new BlackBerry Z10 to its stable of supported devices, T-Mobile MVNO Solavei has opened its airwaves to another major smartphone. Solavei announced this morning that it's now officially offering nano-SIM cards that are compatible with the iPhone 5, allowing owners of Apple's latest smartphone to get in on its $49 per month unlimited plan. The operator is selling nano-SIM cards for $9. Solavei customers that don't yet have an iPhone 5 but want one to hook up to the service can purchase a unit from Solavei partner GSM Nation, which is selling the iOS handset at a starting price of $699.

On the rate plan side of things, Solavei offers a $49 plan that includes unlimited talk, text and data. Users are given a bucket of 4GB of high-speed data per month with the plan, after which their speeds will be throttled. One of the things that makes Solavei unique is that it pays its customers for convincing others to sign up for service. For example, users are given $20 per month for each trio of friends in their network that are Solavei subscribers. Consumers that are just interested in a cheap monthly wireless plan can just sign up for Solavei's $49 option and be set, though, and the fact that Solavei now officially offers nano-SIM cards for the iPhone 5 could be just the thing to convince some iOS fans to give the service a shot. Are any of you currently signed up for Solavei?



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.”
