Genius Wireless is running a couple of money saving promotions during September.
New customers who activate on or port to Selectel will receive a free month of service on the $15 plan when they buy the Selectel $75 Yearly Plan. Selectel activations and port ins are free at Genius Wireless
The Yearly Plan includes 2000 minutes and 2000 texts. That works out to $6.25/month for 166 minutes and 166 texts per month. The $15 monthly plan provides 300 minutes, 300 texts and 15 MB of 3G data. Once the $15 expires at the end of the month the $75 Yearly Plan will take over. With this offer customers get 13 months service for $5.77 per month if they make it last the whole year.
Genius Wireless is also offering a 5% discount on the Selectel $30 monthly plan and the Page Plus $29.95 monthly plans. Use the discount code FALL05 at checkout to take advantage of this offer.
The Selectel $30 Talk & Text Plan includes 1300 minutes, 3000 texts and 500 MB of 3G data on the Verizon extended network with no roaming charges.
The Page Plus $29.95 Talk n Text 1200 includes 1200 minutes, 3000 texts and 500 MB of 3G data on the Verizon native network with off network roaming available at 20¢/minute.
Selectel and PagePlus are both Verizon MVNOs. PagePlus, which was founded in 1993 and was recently acquired by TracFone, is the larger and older of the two. Selectel, which launched in May, 2013 is a scrappy upstart that's made a name for itself by including no extra cost off-network roaming with all plans. For more about about PagePlus see our PagePlus Operator Profile. For more about Selectel see our Selectel Operator Profile.
Genius Wireless is one of the largest Selectel and PagePlus dealers and is noted for good customer service. They offer a no extra charge auto refill service for Selectel customers. Auto refill is not available directly from Selectel.
