Solavei offers free month of service to new members

solavei-630

Do you have an extra T-Mobile or unlocked phone laying around? Want to test out a new mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that pays you to refer other customers? For the rest of the month, Solavei is offering a special promotion that makes it even easier to sign up by offering a free month of service.

Solavei is a pre-paid wireless service that operates on T-Mobile’s network. Anyone can sign up without a contract or any commitments. The monthly fee is $49 which will get you unlimited talk, text, and 4 GB of data before you get throttled. It works pretty much like any other pre-paid service, with one major exception.

After you sign up for Solavei, you are given a referral link that you can share with your family and friends. For every three people that sign up, you get a Trio that earns you $20 per month. When your friends sign up other people, the number of Trios in your personal network will continue to grow.

New members who enroll for mobile service by October 31st will receive their first month of mobile service for free, a savings of $49. If they bring their own phone, their SIM card is also free, a savings of $29. For BYOP members, that’s a total saving of $78. There is still a one-time activation fee of $49, but that is all you will pay to test out Solavei.

I’ve been using Solavei since it launched last month and I have been satisfied with the service so far. I’m using a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III right now and I’m getting full 4G HSPA+ speeds. My downloads are around 10-15 Mbps and my uploads are 1-2 Mbps.

As I mentioned in my previous article 7 things you should know about pre-paid smartphone service, customer service can be hit or miss. Solavei has already reported that a couple hundred users experience problems with porting their existing numbers, which is why I always suggest moving your number to Google Voice and then forwarding whatever new number you are given.

My dad was one of the people who had issues activating his Solavei SIM card, and it took them over a week to resolve his issue. It is unacceptable that anyone should have to wait that long on a service issue, but Solavei has admitted that their customer support center was overwhelmed with calls and they are currently staffing up.

I’m still not ready to give Solavei a full recommendation, but this is a great chance to try it out if you are curious. If you have any questions about signing up or bringing your own phone, just leave a comment and I’ll do my best to answer them.

    I see what you did there with that link… ;-)

    I’ve actually been curious about these guys. Thanks for the write-up. Not sure I’m willing to give them a shot since T-Mobile’s value plans are so cheap as-is, but I may forward this service on to others I know. The value plans only get cheap when you need 5 lines.

            Add my trio that I just completed earlier this week too, and now you’re talking!

          • rich

            That new enrollee would be me. I’ve been looking for a plan to try out with my nexus 4 that’s on the way. If I don’t like it, I’ll ditch it. I must say that as soon as I tell anybody the MLM aspect of it, they’re put off. So, I’ve decided to be more passive about it. I’ll tell people about the plan if/when they ask about carriers and I won’t even mention the MLM. I’ll tell them to let me know if they want to sign up because I can get a referral bonus, and that’s all I’ll say.

            You article was honest enough to say you didn’t make any money yet, and I’d rather give you the referral than someone that didn’t do a thing for it.

      How to setup your existing Nexus 4 with Solavei or get a sim card ahead of time:

  • PHADE

    Hey Taylor (or anyone else), I’m ready to go hop into the GSM PrePaid gang but I have a question:

    To get HSPA+ speeds on a PrePaid carrier for the Galaxy Note 2, do I NEED to get the phone from T-Mobile or will the At&t version be fine?

    Thanks!

    • http://www.jaxidian.org/update/ jaxidian

      You need to make sure of the following things:

      1) The phone is *fully* compatible with the carrier you choose to go with. Not all AT&T phones will get HSPA+ on T-Mobile right now. That said, T-Mobile is “refarming” a bunch of spectrum to make this no longer a concern.
      2) You need to make sure your phone is “carrier-unlocked”. If you buy something from one carrier and plan to take it to another carrier, look into this more for your phone. If you buy it from a third-party reseller that isn’t affiliated with a carrier, they should make it clear if the phone is carrier-unlocked.

      • PHADE

        Thanks for the reply jaxidian….I should specify:

        1) If the Galaxy Note 2 is not unlocked….I will unlock it.

        2) This is the question I should’ve asked:
        Does anybody know if an Unlocked At&t ($250) Galaxy Note 2 has the capabilities (bands) to get HSPA+ speeds or will it be better for me to get the T-Mobile ($350+) version instead.

        Thanks! (The price is what “I” would spend on the Note 2)

        • Emmanuel Rodriguez

          I had the At&t Galaxy Note and I rooted and unlocked it and I flashed the Blaze kernel and it was working fine on T-mobile.
          It would probably be the same on the Note 2

        • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

          No, the AT&T Note 2 will not work on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network even if you SIM unlock the device. The original Note could be hacked to work on T-Mobile, but you need to root the device and flash a new kernel to do so.

          That being said, the AT&T Note 2 will work on T-Mobile’s 2G speeds for now and will get full HSPA+ support sometime next year (depending on when you live) when T-Mobile re-farm’s its current network.

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      Short answer: it depends on your location.

      The global Galaxy Note 2 will work on AT&T 4G HSPA+ no problem. By the end of the year, it should also work on T-Mobile in their top 50 markets.

      T-Mobile is currently upgrading their network to support 4G HSPA+ on the 1900 MHz band and they have already converted around 6 cities including Seattle, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Las Vegas, Kansas City, and the New York metro area.

      See this recent post from T-Mobile – http://blog.t-mobile.com/2012/10/15/t-mobile-heating-up-in-kansas-city-improved-coverage-and-faster-iphone-speeds/

      Another option is you could sign up with Straight Talk SIM. They allow you to pick which network you want, AT&T or T-Mobile, so you just get the one that matches your phone.

      • PHADE

        Thanks Taylor!

        So me living in Los Angeles and wanting decent HSPA+ speeds on an Unlock Galaxy Note 2, should I go with T-Mobile version or At&t version?

        NOTE: The Global version is out of the question!

        • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

          The AT&T HSPA+ network is larger, but T-Mobile is faster. AT&T only supports HSPA+ 21 Mbps and T-Mobile does HSPA+ 42 Mbps. It’s a tough call really. Both networks have their advantages.

          • Jack Hodges

            My son lives in Los Angeles, wants a Note 2 and wants to use it on T-Mobile’s pre-paid plan. I am confused about why anyone would be using an ATT Note 2 on a pre-paid plan. To get an ATT Note 2 don’t you have to agree to their 2 year contract? Will ATT (and T-Mobile) be selling an unlocked version?

            I figured that unless ATT & T-Mobile do sell unlocked versions that I need to buy the unlocked international Note 2 in order to avoid a 2 year contract.

          • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

            If you are using an AT&T device on a pre-paid service that uses AT&T’s network, then the device does not need to be unlocked. The same thing goes for T-Mobile devices on pre-paid services that use T-Mobile.

            If your son wants to use T-Mobile pre-paid, then he should get the T-Mobile version of the Note 2.

    • Randy

      The galaxy note 2 does not work on Solavei at the current moment. That phone and the iphone 5 are due to be compatible in the coming weeks.

  • david

    so free to try means pay 50 dollars…

    • jonathan3579

      That’s the irony in the statement. Besides, I prefer Straight Talk (T-Mobile compatible sim) and no data limits. I used 7.9gb last month with no throttling. I’m not gonna be bothered by recruiting people either.

    • http://www.focuszonedevelopment.com Homncruse

      It’s an activation fee, yes. That’s not waived in this case.

  • Jay

    How can you get in touch with soavei? They don’t even have a telephone number. If anyone knows their number please help out. Thanks

  • Harry Ward

    For anyone in the UK Giffgaff have a similar system. You can pay £10 a month for unlimited texts, unlimited data and 250 minutes! And for everyone who you refer to them you get £5 to do what you like with! so yeah, sign up through me! http://giffgaff.com/orders/affiliate/magicsmarties

  • Mike

    Is it possible to have multiple phones with solavei. From everything I have seen thus far, when you sign up you sign up for a single sim card. Do you sign up twice ? How does compensation work if you do that ?

    • http://www.focuszonedevelopment.com Homncruse

      Yes, you sign up multiple single-line accounts. It’s up to you if you put them all under the same referral, or sign up your additional lines under yourself to get you that much closer (which seems like the smarter thing to do).

    hey, I’m going to get the LG Nexus 4, and was going to get the $60 T-Mobile Monthly4G plan.
    Just how shady is Solavei? There are tons of comments around the web saying they’re shady, and have ZERO customer support. I’m not interested in shady MLM stuff. I don’t want to annoy my friends with that rubbish.
    But, even without doing that, Solavei is $10 cheaper than T-Mobile, and gives 4GB of 4G Data instead of 2GB. So, it would seem like an obvious choice.
    But, are they shady? Do they have any customer support?
    Also, there’s a shady website that says you get a debit card along with service. WTF!!!
    I don’t want a debit card from solavei!

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      They have a great support site and phone support if you need it. The service has been great so far. They send you a debit card that they deposit money to if you sign up other people. If you have no intention to refer other users, you can just throw the Solavei PayCard away.

    • http://www.focuszonedevelopment.com Homncruse

      The people who are saying Solavei is shady haven’t actually tried the service. It’s low-risk, so you can just try it for yourself. As Taylor said, the customer service is just fine, and there’s a nice community who can help you with simple questions too.

      The debit card is Solavei’s payment method. It’s a lot more efficient than them sending you a check every pay period, since you have the money immediately, and you can do whatever you want with it.

  • Vickles

    If I byop to solavei and it is a tmobile phone, is it still a requirement that I get it unlocked in order to work?

    Anyone offerring free unlocks in exchange for sponsorship?

    • http://www.focuszonedevelopment.com Homncruse

      If it is a phone locked to T-Mobile, you will be fine on Solavei’s network. However, I’d be surprised if you actually have a locked phone.

  • Hope

    I cannot send picture texts on my SIII phone.. Help!

  • t dizzy

    does solavei give you a number? i’m getting a tmo pp phone for my daughter for christmas, but do i need to activate the pp phone and get a phone # or can i just buy the phone from tmo and solavei gives a number?

  • Thomas B.

    The ONLY thing you pay is “the one time enrollment of $49″ seriously? You can get a SIM card for 99 cents on here for Simple Mobile and test it out for the simple price of $30 so how is this a good deal? I’m sorry I am not followning you?? AND Simple is UNLIMITED 4G! solavei is NOT! Sounds like someone just wants people to click his link and make money for him, huh?

    • Meleniumshane90

      Simple Mobile is NOT Unlimited 4G lol. They’re an MVNO owned by TracFone and they have data limits just like every other sub-carrier leasing towers.

      From what I’ve read up on Solavei, it’s something like 4.5GB of 4G speed, then they drop you down to 2G.

      The supposed benefit of Solavei is not having physical locations and a because of that, not a lot of overhead. You control what you pay – if you refer 3 people, you get $20 a month. It’s interesting, but we’ll see how they do in a year or so.

  • Dierk Dubois

    One of the best reviews from solavei, It really explains what this company is all about.

  • Rob

    Ok, I’ll bite: I’ll make it free for people to try. $50 Paypal to you after 15 days, when the return period is over. That means you stay for the first month minimum.

    Then you can see that it works and isn’t ‘shady’.

    circlephone dot com for my real contact info.

    Although, I bet this STILL isn’t enough convincing. You can check the blog section for real info, speed tests, etc. Nexus 4 has been tested. Details on that over there.

  • grettel

    I really don’t like this service is slow it take me 10 minutes to open my Netflix and when finally got it it does not open am going back t tmobjl

  • Angel

    I have an iPhone 4S and the Internet is very slow I wouldn’t recommend this company they promise 4g speeds but is only edge2 so don’t waste your money

      The supposed benefit of Solavei is not having physical locations and a because of that, not a lot of overhead. You control what you pay – if you refer 3 people, you get $20 a month. It’s interesting, but we’ll see how they do in a year or so.

    One of the best reviews from solavei, It really explains what this company is all about.

    Ok, I’ll bite: I’ll make it free for people to try. $50 Paypal to you after 15 days, when the return period is over. That means you stay for the first month minimum.

    Then you can see that it works and isn’t ‘shady’.

    circlephone dot com for my real contact info.

    Although, I bet this STILL isn’t enough convincing. You can check the blog section for real info, speed tests, etc. Nexus 4 has been tested. Details on that over there.
