Aio Wireless prepaid brand unveiled a new $25/month plan this week. It includes unlimited voice calling and domestic text messaging but no data or picture messaging. The plan is not eligible for the $5/month autopay discount that's available on higher priced plans. It's also not eligible for the $15/month Aio Passport international add-on so there's no way to call or text internationally!
The $25 plan is available with Aio branded feature phones or you can use your own AT&T or unlocked GSM phone.
According to the Aio site bringing your own phone to the $25 plan is limited to feature phones. But a Howard Forums member entered an iPhone 5 IMEI on the sign up page for the plan and it was accepted. That's not a guarantee that a smartphone would actually work however.
The $25 plan is a nice addition to the Aio lineup for for customers who have no use for data and don't want to pay for it. It seems to be targeted at MetroPCS' long running $25 talk and text only promotional plan. For customers who do want data Aio has plans starting at $40/month ($35 with autopay). The table below lists all Aio plans.
