You need an app to make calls and send texts... Be very careful this is not suited to most in my opinion

Unreal sucks. You have to use their standalone app for everything like calls and messages. It's VOIP so it won't work for a lot of "port in" deals. Better off paying a little more for normal type service.

Hey. Give the company some credit. They acknowledge how unrealistic their service is by naming their service "unreal." At least they are honest.

Is that a new thing? I was using unreal mobile when they were a Sprint MVNO and I didn't need to use an app for anything. I had voice/text/data similar to this deal.

I think the app is only if you use a GSM carrier like AT&T right?
The service was pretty good for the price I think.

Here's the fine print from the website
"No overage charges. Once LTE data used, speeds reduced to 2G. SIM plans use VoIP and require the UNREAL Mobile app running on Android 4.1+ or iOS 8.2+. Special features included in some plans."

SIM plans might mean GSM? I'm currently on the Sprint free plan but may revisit this in a year when it expires.

How have you found service on Unreal so far? What plan are you on? Are they charging taxes + fees?

It was fine, I didn't find it to be any different from Sprint service. I was using it for about 6 months between the free 1 yr sprint deals.

I'm back on the Sprint 1 yr deal so will look into Unreal again next year.

Unreal is only good for light usage for a family member that doesnt need a lot of usage outside the house. Otherwise I'm also happy with red pocket and mintsim for service on AT&T and TMobile.

Didn't know about their SIM/GSM network, I used their Sprint service before, No need for their dedicated app to call. I remember that's the point and difference from their parent company FPOP.

So, SIM kit on ATT network requires VOIP?!

You mean you are back on the sprint one year BYOD plan? They offered me an extension first but later said they cant add it since its not available anymore.

Activates 3 days after shipping. It's usually $7 month from Best Buy. If you buy from BB it won't be activated automatically
