Solavei Prepaid Wireless Plan Review

Overview

Launched in 2013, Solavei is a T-Mobile MVNO with a very unusual business model, which offers customers incentives to enroll their friends in the service. Consumers can even get free wireless service or even earn an income based on how many others they sign up. The company has recently begun restructuring after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June of 2014. They are still open for business and enrolling customers, however, and have introduced additional plans and changed their incentive programs.

Pros: Their plans are pretty good value, and the opportunity to get the service for free when you enroll six friends is pretty nice.

Cons: Phone options are limited unless you activate an old phone.

Have had my Solavei phone for a few months now, and so far it has been great. I love the phone and the plan works really well too. Has been unlimited, and have had no issues.
