Free SIM and Free Month of Service For New Black Wireless Customers

AT&T MVNO Black Wireless is running a couple of promotions that give new users a free month of service.

The first deal is for users porting a number to Black Wireless and makes the first month of service free. To take advantage of this offer, choose any Black Wireless monthly plan. Black Wireless will send you a free SIM with free shipping.  When the SIM arrives, insert it in your phone and visit blackwireless.com and click the ACTIVATE link. You must choose to port in when you activate to get your first month free.

If you don't have a number to port, you can use the Black Wireless' "Buy 2 Months, Get 1 Month Free" offer. Go to https://www.blackwireless.com/FreeMonthPlans.aspx and choose any monthly plan and pay for two months. Shipping is free and when you activate the SIM you get three months of service for the price of two.

Black Wireless is a reseller of Locus Communications (aka H2O Wireless) service. Plans (listed below) and pricing are identical to H2O's and users report the same un-advertised throttling on the $50 and $60 plans as with H2O.

  1. As a Google Voice user, could I just port the number from my current SIM card that I never use to take advantage of this offer?

    1. As long as the current number isn't a Black Wireless number I don't see why not.

  3. If you're interested in signing up for Black Wireless, I think it'd be a good idea to read the whole thread Dennis linked to above under "users report the same un-advertised throttling".

    It's not particularly reassuring.

    1. @Dennis, when you get the time one day could you do a breakdown of the MVNO's and prepaid carriers that offer LTE?

      Delete
    2. I've been adding LTE support to the "[Carrier] and [carrier] MVNOs Compared" series of posts.

      Here's a quick off the top of my head summary of who has LTE:
      Verizon: none
      AT&T: GoPhone, Aio, Straight Talk, NET10, Consumer Cellular
      T-Mobile: T-Mobile Prepaid, 35orLess, Straight Talk, NET10, Simple Mobile, MetroPCS
      Sprint: Boost, Virgin, Sprint As You Go, most Sprint MVNOs

      I probably missed a couple, check the summary posts for the full picture

    1. The promo code is "FEB2014". Maybe the promo ends at the end of the month.

      Delete
    2. On the web chat, a Black Wireless CSR mentioned that they have not set an end date for activation for those SIM cards bought under the FEB2014 promotion. Those SIMs are tagged in their database with activation credit equal to one month's recharge value based on the chosen plan, so you need to activate the correct one if you have purchased multiple with different sizes and plans. As of yesterday, 03/27, the activation went well with the free month, but this may stop any day at their discretion. Porting your number in is a requirement for this offer. I'll try one more in late April or early May, and update what happens.
