Genius Wireless has extended their September promotions through October.
New customers, including port-ins, who activate service on Selectel's $75 Yearly Plan using Genius Wireless during October will receive a free month of service on Selectel's $15 plan. Selectel activations and port ins are free at Genius Wireless.
The Yearly Plan comes with 2000 minutes and 2000 texts. That works out to $6.25/month for 166 minutes and 166 texts per month. The $15 monthly plan includes 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 the 2000 minutes and 2000 texts last the whole year.
Genius Wireless is also offering a 5% discount on the Selectel $40 monthly plan and the Page Plus $39.95 monthly plan. Use the discount code SCARE5 at checkout to take advantage of this offer.
The Selectel $40 Talk & Text Plan includes unlimited minutes, unlimited messaging and 200 MB of 3G data on the Verizon extended network with no roaming charges.
The Page Plus $39.95 Unlimited Talk n Text Plan includes unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1 GB of 3G data on the Verizon native network with off network roaming available at 20¢/minute. It also comes with 100 minutes of no extra cost international calling.
New Selectel activations also come with a $2 starter airtime credit. Effective October 1, 2014, PagePlus no longer includes any starter airtime and now also requires the purchase of $10 or more of airtime when activating a line or initiating a port in.
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 unusual in that it offers no extra cost off-network voice roaming with all plans. For more about about PagePlus see our PagePlus Operator Profile.
