Faith Wireless is a New MVNO that Helps You Donate to Your Church

faith-wireless
Faith Wireless is a new MVNO currently running on Sprint's network. In the future, they intend to add more network partners to accommodate more customers. True to its name, the MVNO believes that the church is the most important aspect of every community. But because there is a problem with funding initiatives to help expand their mission, the creators of the MVNO saw the need to start Faith Wireless as a way of offering cell phone service with a purpose.

It is able to do this with every payment made by allocating 10 percent of the customer's cell phone payment to the church they belong to. As a customer, you get the same talk, text and data service on you major networks as the big carriers do. Out of your monthly bill, 10 percent will be donated to build the future of your church. They offer the following plans:

  • Helpful ($20 per month) - includes 1000 minutes, unlimited text, and 100 MB of data
  • Devoted ($36 per month) - includes unlimited talk, text and 2GB of data
  • Righteous ($41 per month) - includes unlimited talk, text and 3GB of data
  • Virtuous ($46 per month) - includes unlimited talk, text and 5GB of data 
  • Blessed ($56 per month) - includes unlimited talk, text and 7GB of data

You can keep your number and phone (in most cases) with Faith Wireless. Additionally, they offer some phones for sale as a way of helping incompatible devices or if you just need an upgrade. Staying true with its promise, 10 percent of the payment you made will go to your church.

As part of their launch, Faith Wireless has launched a contest. For a limited time, the MVNO is offering free activation and double donation to the church with waived activation fee. The double donation only applies on the first donation made to the church. The offer ends on March 31, 2017. Learn more about this through their Facebook page.

  4. What about taxes? are they included? this is very important for prepaid plans. It could make a big difference especially in places like CA.

  5. Wow the logistics of sending payments to church. Why not give a low price and let us donate to a church? Are Muslim mosques ok?

    1. Because donating directly means you you aren't getting a whole lot of "value". You get a deduction on your taxes but for 20-50% depending on the situation. Here you get a service and the church gets the deduction. You don't loss much if anything since you are paying for a service and the charity is on the site whereas if you donate you lose 50%-80% of the money with no benefit to you.

      I mean maybe you will feel good about yourself because you helped society out.

    2. I'm not following your math. If I give $5 (lol) to a 501c3, I can write off $5. If I give $50 to a phone company for phone service, I can write off $0. If the phone company gives a 501c3 $5, they can write off $5.

      Trying to write off $50 for buying phone service is an "excess benefit transaction", and illegal for all parties.

    3. I see your points, Anon919 and Anon541. I guess they're going for customers who might not be otherwise donating, may feel a little guilty and see this as an avenue to kill two birds with one stone (get cell service and donate to church.) I think TPO? is another MVNO with a donation aspect to them.

      A smaller niche-within-a-niche might be people who are already donating but might see this as a nice way to supplement their donations.

    4. Not everyone itemizes deductions.

  6. Oh.. Sprint... Is roaming included?

  7. It's a niche mvno. Not saying that they are okay or not. It is what they do with it. Defense mobile was one niche mvno that did it wrong. Consumer Cellular is a big niche mvno that is doing it right. It really will come down to execution. and faith will have a lot to do with it in this competitive mvno age....

    Another Sprint MVNO? Ohh Goodie!!
    I KNOW Sprint is PURE-GENIUS that takes many different forms.
    (Remember the LEONARDO 2 PLAN?)

    "She wanted to remember everything about him. Her music man."
    Unfortunately, she relied on #RingPlus

    1. I guess since they're looking (desperate?) for subs, Sprint presents the lowest barriers for MVNO startups.

  9. Even God wouldn't pay those prices. These niche MVNOs are getting crazy. There are ones dedicated to the military, old people, young people, poor people, charities....what happened to just getting good service at a good price.

  10. I'm all for businesses setting up donations to whatever, but naming their pricing tiers like that is...tacky. Just IMO.

  11. I have faith that this will be out of business before the end of the year.

  12. Yap, church + business donations = scam.

  13. I pray that Faith Wireless switches over to T-Mobile. I do not have any Faith for Sprint.
