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.
