Liberty Wireless - Free Phone - $20+tax month unlimited talk & text


They let you choose from 3 phones - Katana II , Katana LX and Motorola V3m.

Looks like they charge $9.95 for shipping and handling. Tax for me was $3.

They use the Sprint network.

Looks like a good plan for someone not needing a touchscreen phone or data.

did you record that conversation?
no where on their page said that it will be $20 PER/EACH month for unlimited talk+txt on the same account.

Judging from 2 instances that i mentioned earlier, it's clearly for first activation only. What "1 month" that we dont understand?

What's your point?

$20/month for unlimited talk and text.

In addition, desert904 called and confirmed that this is the monthly price. No need to be so adamant.

Why did you cut the portion that you didn't want us to see?
"Offer is valid only on new activation"

Unfortunately Republic Wireless isn't yet available to most people. Also, many people do not need and/or want a smartphone. This would be a much better option for this type.

My first cell phone in 2004 was Liberty Wireless and I hated it. I had a $10/month plan for which I was charged $17/month with most of the difference being "fees." Also, at the time you could not send text messages, and you were docked a minute for each message someone sent you.

I would have left sooner, but you had to keep service active for 6 months to qualify for the rebate on the free after rebate phone. I called after seeing my first bill, and they would not let me return my phone for a refund. Customer service was polite, but unyielding.

If you want a cheap phone, get virgin/boost with the fees included. If you get a standard postpaid plan, it's true that they will add fees, but they won't be 70% on top of your bill.

I strongly recommend against this company. They nickle and dime you at every chance they have, and are backwards as far as technology. If you do decide to use them, make sure to read all of the fine print. I jumped on free phone, $10/mo, no contract thinking I had nothing to lose, without realizing that I wouldn't quality for the rebate immediately and that the actual bill would be 70% more. Not a lot of money, but a ripoff for the service I was getting.

Are you blind?

I link the banner straight from their website, I dont have the time to Photoshopped these.

No where does it states only 1 month promotion, which you were arguing about.

Thanks for the review, that answered my question about people just taking the phone without sticking to the plan. So the phones are free AFTER REBATE.

you must be so blind if you can't see my red bold text copied straight from that website.
Do I have to repeat it again that the offer is good for new activation only?

Microkelvin, the fact that the website says "new activations only" changes nothing regarding the ongoing monthly plan price. Calm down.

Dont switch up the argument, we were talking about the on going charge is $20 a month. You were saying that the $20 a month is for the first month and the price changes after that. I'm the blind one? I saw your bold red quote, I'm talking about the banner not stating anything about the $20 being for the first month only. Also you accused me of cutting something out of the picture, yet I still see it there. What is going on? Are you feeling OK today?

I am positive that they can have $20 monthly plan because there are couple other websites offered the same $20 for unlimited talk + text. I believe in it. However, the "1 month" phrase, "valid for new activation only", and its Q&A listed its old "standard" plan made me think otherwise. And yes, they can twist otherwise, unless they make it more clear.
