Update: New promo code for $10/off per month for first six month w/ promo code PAT20



Venn Mobile [vennmobile.com] is offering $9/off per month for the first six months after code "SAVE9".

They only have one plan, which is unlimited minutes, texts, 4G LTE data, plus a 50GB hot spot. The base price is $30/mo. with no contract. After coupon, the price for the first six months is $21/mo.

*** Note- you cannot port in an existing Sprint number.

The only other fees are a $3.50/mo. regulatory fee (for comparison, Mint charges roughly this, and Visible rolls it into their plan), and a one time $10 fee for a new SIM (these are free with Mint and Visible, I think).

They also sell phones starting at $30 with a plan. A "like new" iPhone 6S is $70, Samsung Galaxy J3 is $30.

Is there an activation deadline?

Are there any other fees, other than $20/mo ?

It might be worth mentioning that this MVNO also allows international roaming, with free texting and data in many countries. I go to Japan a lot, and Sprint is a godsend — because of Softbank's majority share in Sprint, SoftBank offers sprint users high-speed data with no limits when roaming in Japan.
I was on the Sprint free plan and it ended, but I snapped this up after confirming it would have the same int'l roaming performance as sprint.
Also, I was able to activate it on a non-Sprint iPhone, so as long as you have something Sprint-compatible, you should be OK. In my case I used the Dual-SIM Hong Kong iPhone.
this is awesome if still true. wonder if thier site has a page to show where they roam. i'll check in a moment. i been looking for a mVNO that offers a roaming agreement w/ diff countries. mint & visible dont have it / or it just don't work....

Signed up late last night; got the activation email later the next morning.

FWIW, I re-used a SIM I had previously used with Tello, but has been inactive a few months.

Updated the PRL and device config, and everything works. I have this setup as a mobile hotspot, which then ties into a DD-WRT router (via wifi) configured for client bridge, which then is wired to another router that feeds the entire house. This is because the phone's mobile hotspot has limited power/range.

Bandwidth tests, indoors, in a very rural area (but near a highway):
~10mbps down, ~7 mbps up. Latency of around 50ms.

I used the PAT20 promo code.


To the naysayers, you're full of beans. It works, it's $23.50 with tax per month, and it beats the tar out of any other option I have available at this location in all categories (price, performance, and service quality).

Thanks! I was on the fence. Turns out you just need 5 Mbps for 1080p streaming.

I'm switching from Visible which sounded good on paper. I can't count the number of times I had full signal but throttled speed.

You might try: USB tether your phone to DD-WRT/OPENWRT router instead of wifi as will be faster and phone will use less energy and last longer not to mention you will only need 1 router instead of 2 powered up. This is of course dependent on having USB available on 1 of your routers.

How much? Because I was going to force you to use Sprint. But if you pay me enough, I'll move on to someone else.

No workarounds? I meant to test this but didn't get a chance during the free month.
I use a travel router to get around these types of limitations if I'm staying at a hotel that only allows one wireless device. You could try something similar with a cheap/spare router.

From their FAQ: "Should you choose to bring your own SIM, it MUST meet the following two criteria:
1. It MUST be Sprint branded (not co-branded/MVNO)
2. It MUST be new and unused. "

Does that mean I can't use my old Boost MotoE-2nd gen + its Boost sim on Venn? (Planning to use this mainly for the 50GB hotspot). Anyone have any experience that goes contrary to their FAQ?

I would, but not supported. 9 watts is nothing to cry about. It's replacing a DSL modem that probaby used as much if not more.

Also it won't be faster. AC wifi has more bandwidth than a USB or even ethernet connection in most cases. In any event, the bottleneck is the LTE connection, which comes nowhere close to even N wifi speed limitations.

I have the radio power dialed down as well.

3mbit dsl was enough for 1080p on prime.

Anyone successfully port from a Sprint mvno like Tello or Ting? Also for those already on Venn, can you easily change ESN/ phone on the website yourself or does customer service need to do it?

Looks like the deal is dead. Just spoke to a rep through chat & they told me the code is no longer active.
