^ also same reason you can find tons of posts for woot, or anything else, to help spread the word! this is no amway, just look at the backers: Former executives from T-Mobile, AT&T and Motricity,
Former U.S. Rep. Rick White is the company's "head of legal and policy." Advisors include former FCC chief of staff, Eddie Lazarus; former T-Mobile chief operating officer, Sue Nokes; Amazon Vice President, Dave Limp; former Coinstar CFO Brian Turner; News Corp. chief digital officer and former AOL CEO, Jon Miller; and John Rittenhouse, a Walmart and Target veteran now chief executive of Cavallino Capital.
For those who are already with the service, can you tell me more about the phones that will be offered and their prices? It looks like the HTC One S is one and I'm not familiar with the other one that was mentioned. I'm interested in the service but T-Mobile currently has some pretty nice offers for their prepaid phones right now.
Will there be prepaid cards available for purchase online or in stores? Or will we have to reload our accounts online using credit cards? Are there taxes on top of the $49 per month? And is the $49 a month plan the only one that will be offered.
Finally, will referrals to family members living at the same address be allowed?
If you buy your ST PINS from WalMart online...no tax and delivered to your email in a few minutes!
I can buy pins that are delivered via email in seconds from Callingmart and they come at 5% discount for Simple Mobile.
Others have said they have to pay tax for straight talk. When it first came out, I was under the impression it was billed like post paid. $45 for the first phone $25 for each additional, but like $10 in taxes.
No one wants to comment on the number porting process with this MVNO?
Since there are few users in the beta stage, there might not be anyone who has done a port yet or at least anyone on these forums. Just need to wait and watch till it is launched to the public which is around end of Sep I believe.

◦ International Roaming: With your Solavei unlocked GSM phone you can take your phone internationally and insert an international prepaid SIM card local to the country you are visiting. Pay only for what you need and never worry about surprise roaming costs!
Does this plan have Conditional Call Forwarding (ie No Answer, Busy, Unavailable)? If so, I'm sold.
Otherwise, not sure how you could use YouMail with this carrier.
Wife is happy with Simple Mobile's unlimited 3G plan. But seriously, this new player want you to pay 50 bucks to join. LMAO I got the Simple Mobile packet for $1 on ebay.
Agreed -- don't see this plus to this over simple mobile's $50 unlimited talk / text / 4g plan (unless there is a low data cap on that?) -- the sim on those plans are $1 on ebay w/ no activation fees.
This plan has a $49 activation fee. so you are looking at at $48 difference between the two. Even if you are doing this based on their $20 referral fee per 3 users, you would need to refer 9 users before you were ahead on the simple mobile plan.
I know that simple mobile was awful in the past (sketchy advertising: "UP TO 3g speeds" that were really capped at 119kbps) but since the AM takeover they appear to have improved greatly.
