The People's Operator (TPO) 844-876-8326, a Sprint MVNO launched in the US earlier this year, is running a promotion the gives new users two months of service for one cent. The penny service is on TPO's $42 Unlimited Monthly Goodness plan which includes unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 5 GB of data.
To get this deal you need to Bring Your Own Sprint Phone (BYOSP) and use promo code TPOBYOD when activating on line or by phone. The offer ends tomorrow Oct 3. There is no activation fee.
TPO supports both LTE and non-LTE Sprint phones but does not sell Sprint LTE SIM cards which seems like a logistical mistake on their part. New Sprint LTE phones come with a SIM but many used ones do not. Ironically, the easiest way to get a SIM is probably from TPO competitor Ting which sells them from $9.
TPO donates 10% of plan prices and 20% of profits to charities chosen by the customer from a list that includes the World Wildlife Federation, Save the Children, SPCA, American Lung Association, Habitat For Humanity and many more. TPO's chairman is Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales.
In spite of the credit check and high taxes and fees, this is a fairly good deal. After the first two "free" months, TPO costs about $50/month with taxes and fees, which is a competitive price for unlimited talk and text and 5 GB of data on the Sprint network. Plus you get the satisfaction of giving a little each month to your favorite charities.
