Airvoice Wireless has made some plan changes that give monthly plan users more data. Here's what's changed:
- The formerly data-less $30 plan now comes with 100 MB
- The old $35 100 MB plan is no longer available
- The $40 plan goes from 500 MB to 1 GB
- The $55 - 1 GB plan is replaced by a $60 - 3 GB plan
If you are a current Airvoice customer on a monthly plan, the new plans will show up on the Buy Airtime page after you enter your phone number. A reader shared his phone number with me so that I could get the screenshot above.
Interestingly, the $60 plan is shown as having unlimited data, but according to Airvoice support it's actually capped at 3 GB. Continuing a quirky Airvoice tradition, data on the $40 - 1GB and $60 - 3 GB plans is delivered in two chunks. After using 1.5 GB on the $60 plan or 500 MB on the $40 plan, you have to call Airvoice and ask them to release the rest of the data. All the data on the $30 100 MB plan is available immediately.
These new plans give Airvoice more data than any other AT&T MVNO at the $30 and $40 price points. At the $60 level Airvoice is matched by Red Pocket and H2O.

3 On the $40 plan data is cut off at 500 MB, rather than the advertised 1 GB. The user has to call Airvoice after 500 MB and ask them to release the last 500 MB. On the $60 plan, only 1.5 GB is delivered initially, the user must call to get the second 1.5 GB.
