For a few days now, people have been wondering whether or not Airvoice already has LTE network connectivity. After much speculation about the AT&T MVNO, Prepaid Phone News finally got in touch with Airvoice and touched base on the issue. When asked about LTE connection, Airvoice confirmed that it is now available across all plans.

  • $30 Unlimited 30 day Plan - comes with unlimited anytime minutes, text, MMS, international SMS, international long distance calling to 80+ countries, and 1GB of web.
  • $50 Unlimited 30 day Plan - comes with unlimited anytime minutes, text, MMS, international SMS, international long distance calling to 80+ countries, and 5GB of web. 

Pay As You Go:

  • $10
  • $20
  • $30
Pay As You Go plans include talk and text, voicemail, international calling, MMS and data.

250 Minute Plan:

  • $10 250 Minute Plan - comes with 250 talk minutes, 500 text messages, data, MMS, and international SMS/MMS.


According to Airvoice, customers who activated their plans since May 26 automatically have LTE connection available on their devices. Meanwhile, those who activated their phones prior to May 26 can make a call to Airvoice and request for LTE connection to be enabled on their device.

    1. True, but it could be a good choice for short term international visitors.

  2. This doesn't look any better than Gophone, does it?

    If not, why risk anything with a flybynight MVNO which could fly the coop with your money and number (think PTEL and Defense). Just go with Gophone, which is part of good ol' Ma Bell.

    1. GoPhone is now 25¢/min./sms for pay as you go. AirVoice still offers the same thing on their pay as you go plans for 10¢. There is a $1/mo. maintenance fee, however someone who uses 70 or less minutes/sms per month could get by on a $10 AirVoice 90-day refill. The same would cost $25 on GoPhone.

      Also, AirVoice offers 30 days of "unlimited" minutes/sms plus 100 MB data for $20 (as mentioned in the article). The same costs $30 without data (or $25/mo. with autopay)! Please note I've never been a GoPhone or AirVoice customer.

      As far as risk goes, thus far I've enjoyed 9 months of service on a certain low-cost MVNO whose plans and services are constantly critiqued. They've provided good service for the cost, which is definitely a big plus. But that's off-topic.

    2. Yes there are risks with any MVNO. Airvoice has been around since 1999 so they are exactly fly by night. GoPhone is great if their plans meet you needs but Airvoice fills some niches that GoPhone doesn't including:
      PayGo plans with much lower prices per minute, text, MB and month of service than GoPhone.
      A $20 plan with unlimited talk and text and a 50 MB of high speed data.
      A $30 plan with unlimited talk and text and 500 MB of high speed data.

      If you need more than 500 MB than GoPhone is a better choice .

    3. H2O has better pay as you go rates. 5 cents per min which is half the price of airvoice. No maintenance fee, expiration dates stack and minutes rollover.

    4. "A $30 plan with unlimited talk and text and 500 MB of high speed data."

      PureTalk USA gives you better at 1GB high speed for $29

    5. What does it say on the phone screen next to the signal bars when you have PureTalk USA? Does it say AT&T or PureTalk? I know its a silly question but Im just curious...

  3. The only reason I wouldn't try AirVoice is the fact that my iphone would require jailbraking to get it to work with MMS. Instead, I can use Puretalk USA and get it working right off the bat and PureTalk USA has taxes and fees included in their 29 dollar plan with unlimited T/T and 1GB of data.

  4. Do they still throttle the second half of your data to 128kpbs on the monthly plans? if so, than that's not a good deal. Id go with another AT&T MVNO.

    1. Yes Airvoice still throttles the second half of the monthly plan's data.

      Delete
    2. I don't get the point of the throttle...is it to make customers think they are getting more than they really are? I hate fine prints but unfortunately we must be aware of it or we get screwed.

  5. I've used Airvoice for about more than half a year now.
    No problems.
    Their customer service is great.
    Their rates for talk and text is great.

    I am sorry about the throttling, but for a more pure talk and text phone, think for a sector of the population that will really only want that, lets say someone who is within wifi connection, why should they pay $30 a month, that $10 a month savings can go towards something more useful for them.

    I digress.

    But it is always like this.

    I use one carrier.
    My mother and brother use a different carrier.
    My grandmother uses yet a different carrier.

    only because it just seems to be that no one carrier has the options that meet all four of us.

    and that is the great thing here, diversity.

  6. $50 for only 2.5GB of unthrottled data?

    It looks like Grandpa Airvoice hasn't kept up with the times.

    1. You can get that with Crickey Crickey (Cricket)for only $35 and you still get unlimited throttled date after the first 2.5GB. Airvoice you need to either update your plans with more data or get rid of them and focus on pay as you go only.

  7. I have been on AirVoice's $10 250 Minute Plan for a couple of years now.

    It's perfect for my minimal minutes/text needs with great AT&T coverage.

    I get 99 percent of my data from my home wifi, and for those times when I go out of town I use a mobile hotspot.

    With that $10/250 minute plan your remaining dollar balance is rolled over to the next month (when you sign up for autopay) so right now I have a balance of over $60 in my account for the occasional splurge.

    It's certainly not for everyone, but it's a great plan for me.

    1. Im glad it works for you. Unfortunately, the average user needs more data than that.

    1. You can't blame Airvoice for PureTalk's service, pal.

  9. I think Anonymous (8/26/16 at 12:00 PM) is saying that Pure Talk's Customer Service is great and so is Air Voice.

  10. LTE not working on iPhones after it was activated by CS. The same SIM provides LTE on my Moto X. They need a new iPhone cellular profile file, I suspect. This happened before with Ptel when they introduced LTE and it did not work on iPhones until they provided new profile files.
