PTel and Giv Wireless Increase $60 Plan High-Speed Data to 10 GB

T-Mobile MVNO PTel Mobile and its GIV Mobile charitable giving division have both increased the amount of data on their flagship $60/month plan all the way from 4 GB to 10 GB per month.

Both plans also include unlimited voice minutes, unlimited picture messages, unlimited domestic and international text messaging and a $10/month international call credit. GIV also donates 8% of every plan payment to charities chosen by the user from a list that includes the Alzheimer's Association, International AIDS Vaccine Initiative and The Humane Society of the United States.

  1. This isn't any great shakes. MetroPCS gives you unlimited, unthrottled data at that price point.

    1. Yeah I don't get it either. Unless the argument can be given that GIV gives a little bit of your monthly bill to charity. But I think most people would rather just have lower out-of-pocket price, and/or more data and donate to charity directly on their own.

  2. Can PTel activation codes sold at their site (for which PTAC25OFF is valid) be used for monthly recharges? With the SIM cost included and the 25% off, the $35 plans ends up being $30, leveling with the GIV plan, if this works.

    1. I don't think so. PTel SIM plus airtme deals used include regular airtime PINs which could be used to top up any account. I think the Activation Codes can only be used for activating a new account. The intent of the promos seems to be to attract new customers not give big discount on airtime to existing ones.
